Just drink - £100 - £180.

A night on "the other" £30 - £80.

I should add that I don't go on a huge number of nights out, I'm usually working the next day, but when I do I make sure it is a good one.

Are you all pretending to be from TOWIE or something?

Beer costs £3.20 in my (London) local, so if you have six you've still got change for a bag of crisps from £20. If I spent £100 I'd probably have a respiratory arrest unless there was a nice meal in there somewhere!

We tend to go to Red/pizza express, cocktail to start, dinner, bottle of wine and tip £100 squids.

A "night out"?

An interesting concept. I can't remember the last time I had a night out. frown

Anywhere between £30 for a couple of rounds down the pub to £250+ for a proper night out with meal, club etc.

Don't object to either.

Waht concerns me is your measure of whether it's a good night or not is whether you pulled or not. Very strange!
Probably as its going to cost him another £50 for an hooker
Still a relatively cheap night for me £250+£75. Could be worse

And better to do that than wake up to a moose. (Not the moose, ladies!)

It depends if I'm going out, or I'm going out out...

Presumably we're talking families or couples then? You could do better than pizza for £50 a plate.

haha, that's just what I was thinking!!

It is pretty gross how much you can blow on a night out and not even think about it but when it comes to buying new clothes etc. its always 'not sure I can afford that'
To be fair if I felt I "needed" to spend a certain amount then I would. I guess what I'm saying is that I'd be as happy with a few cokes/beers as with whatever the fk it is that can cost £200.

I'm afraid I might sound cynical or just plain rude here but I get the impression some posters think the amount they've spent somehow qualifies how good a time they've had.

For the two of us, here in HKG, if we go for a nice meal, £100--£350, then if we go for a few wines after, in a nice cocktail bar, similar again, depending on the venue. So, £200-£700+. Happens about once a month.

We we go out with friends, the eating part will do undoubtedly be less formal, probably £50-£80, and the boozers will generally be more 'divey' and lively than if its just the two of us, and it is often possible to follow happy hours until 5AM. Still, £3.50-£5.00 during HH, 5-10 otherwise. £150-£300 all in. Also happens about once a month. Sometimes twice.

There is still no compelling reason to be more responsible.

Usually between £40-200, depending on if its just a couple of hours in a pub or a big meal and on it till the early hours.

+ £££ if the casino is involved

+ £££ if it turns into jumping in the car and making it a night in Edinburgh or Newcastle as Aberdeen gets a bit boring sometimes.

HaHa no, £100 a head and just us girlies; the husbands then turn up to pick us up before one bright spark (usually me)says lets go hit a club and party, PARTY!!!!

Suggesting it was just a bottle of wine was misleading; I meant a bottle each, before mains tongue out

Probably £50-60, of which £20-30 is the taxi home.

A good night is all about the people, and emphatically not about the money/location/amount of booze consumed.

I tend not to get completely bladdered, so I normally know how much I've spent, and make rational choices to spend it (or not).
