Standing around the chip shop having a laugh and tucking into late-night doner kebabs are essential parts of a great British evening out, according to new research.
In a definitive list of the things we love about hitting the town in the UK, 23% of Brits said chip shop laughs are a sign of a top night out, while 30% insist a night out isn’t over unless it ends with a doner kebab.
Getting ready with mates, deep and meaningfuls in the taxi, and getting straight into the club without having to queue also made the list of good night out indicators, as did laughing till your sides hurt and hitting the dance floor when a favourite tune drops.
The study of 1,500 Brits was conducted by Malibu as part of its #GoodVibesOnly campaign, which teams up with TV stars Joey Essex and Olivia Attwood, spreading awareness of how young people can stay safe as they start university life.
According to the survey, modern Brits enjoy five nights out a month on average, meaning they are out most weekends and for at least one cheeky night a week.
