tables, and an outdoor patio. There is also a
space for dancing to the various deejays and
live bands that play there.
Since The Clubhouse is so close to
Guilford, it also has an official Guilford
College night on Thursdays, when Guilford
students get in for free with their Quaker
card and — for those who are over 21 —
there are drink specials all night long. Of
course, if you do intend to have a beer or a
shot, be sure to have your driver's license
handy as well.
The Clubhouse is a hotspot for Guilford
activity. Not only do Guilford students
frequent the bar, but they also work there
and play music there.
"I decided to work at The Clubhouse
because I wanted a part-time job with
flexible hours where I could also see all of
my friends and have fun," said Guilford
senior and Clubhouse bartender Caroline
According to Oldfield, The Clubhouse has
always been a Guilford spot. Alumni will
regularly come in and mention how they
used to go there years ago when they were
students, and now they keep coming back
because of the friendly atmosphere.
While Guilford College night usually
attracts a crowd of students who dance,
chat and having fun, Wednesday night —
DJ Brent Rig keeps the party alive and moving at The Clubhouse, a popular spot^for many Guilford
students. Right across the street, it is easy to head over for a taste of the nightlife and some fun.
Bass night — is also quite crowded. Bass Clubhouse are also free for anyone who is 21
night features a DJ playing any sqrt of or older with college identification, not just
music with a heavy bass line, from dubstep Guilford students, and there is live music
to electronic to hip hop and everything both weekend nights,
in between. Fridays and Saturdays at The "You're always going to see someone
you know," said senior Gabo Lemos. "It's
especially packed on Wednesday nights;
because that's the night everyone's ready to
take a break."
Most Guilford students visit The
Clubhouse because it is within walking
distance — which is imperative for those
without a car or a designated driver — and
because they know people who hang out
there. However, one of the main reasons
to go to The Clubhouse cited by people
who know her is a local bartender known
as Shimmi Updatree. On Guilford College
nights, shooters are only three dollars, and
most people who are of-age prefer to request
"Whatever the Universe shoots into my
brain at any given time is what I put in the
shaker," said Updatree when asked how to
make a Shimmi shot. "It's got to be within
my righteous abilities to make it delicious,
but the Universe is never wrong."
The Clubhouse is definitely a Guilford
destination on both weeknights and
weekends, and is a place where college
students can get away from the stresses of
school and just hang out with friends while
listening to a good DJ or band and playing a
little pool or dancing.
Because, after a hard week writing papers
and going to seemingly interminable classes,
sometimes you want to go where everybody
knows your name.
