Use only one of the stairways up to the dancefloor at Trischli: Maybe you haven’t found it yet, but there is more than one stairway to heaven.

Starting to pay with Euros when drunk and out of cash at «Elephant». If money doesn’t matter to you, be our guest. However, if you are part of the other 20% of HSG students, who actually have to work to finance their studies (and partying), you’ll regret this in the morning.
Going to Downtown or Paparazzo: would be an amazing idea if you are into people whose age is at least twice of yours, and Arabian music is your mojo.

Party close to the park next to Marktplatz: in case you don’t want to end up surrounded by a group of noble gentlemen who are certainly way higher than you could imagine.
