The nightclub is a ‘dark place’ where you socialize with others, and can symbolize a lack of awareness of your behavior in social situations. People from the past can appear in this type of setting as you explore traits that you associate with them, and whether or not they are active within you. This is especially true if it is a setting where you are being chased or pursued. The activity of drinking - along with the idea that we dream about what we are not facing - can sometimes be a wake up call to examine substance abuse. See Alcohol, Night and Attack or Being Chased.
