A nightclub (or night club or club) is a drinking, dancing and entertainment venue which does its primary business after dark. A nightclub is usually distinguished from bars, pubs or tavernsby the inclusion of a dance floor and a DJ booth, where a DJ plays recorded dance and pop music. The music in nightclubs is either live bands or, more commonly, a mix of songs played by a DJ through a powerful PA system.
