"The club's good but the lack of a 'real' DJ keeps me wanting." The DJ at that
time which you Largely criticise would have to be one of Melbourne's best DJ's.
Matt Browne has been working in the industry for over 18 years. His ability to
read the crowd, mix and cater for all tastes is second to none. He's the reason
that DNC was so popular and a criticism from you only proves that you don't know
what you’re talking about. Sorry he wasn't playing your choice of music but he's
got other more appreciative people to worry about!

Daisey's Nightclub, or DNC as it is now known, has been operating on a Saturday night for quite a few years now and has established a regular clientele. They aim for a fairly laid back crowd with a dress code of neat casual, but are extremely image based as they're a dance club and want people to dress as if they are going to a club. Guys must wear pants - neat denim is allowed, and most girls either wear knee length skirts but if the night is a little cold, some opt for pants.

Saturday's see a crowd of all ages, but mostly those between the age of 18 to 25. The club opens at nine, but most people don't start arriving until midnight and the club closes at three. The club can hold eleven hundred people at capacity and the lines outside are massive if you're not a member and arrive after eleven. If the night is busy, they open a second tier to the club which comprises of another bar and more seating, but no room to dance. To increase capacity, they also open up the adjoining sports bar and call it the 'Blue Room', it plays mostly retro dance hits.

The dance floor in the main room is quite small and people spill over onto the carpet. The DJ is easily accessible and will play your requests. UV lighting is in use, so watch out for white underwear underneath see through clothing! The bar is long and stretches across most the length of the main room but it can be hard to get service, especially when the staff do tricks with the bottles that they are not competent enough to pull off.

The Blue Room also has its own bar. Seating can be a problem if you don't get in early and have a designated seat holder throughout the night, but as the seating area is raised, many resort to sitting on the seating level with their legs dangling down.

DNC has no bands and the music style in the main room is a case of anything goes, from commercial pop, to Wheatus to hardcore dance - whatever the DJ feels the crowd is in the mood for. The forced Wheatus was a big turn off for me!

There are two pool tables in the main room and another two in the blue room. there are also two car racing arcade games in the main room. Entry is $6, or free with membership. Membership is a case of getting lucky when they hand around the sign up board. Drinks are a standard $5.50 with Illusion shakers $8 all night.

The club's good but the lack of a 'real' DJ keeps me wanting. I go there because it's in my area and means I don't have to drive if I want a night out where I can drink, and still get to work on a Sunday morning. It's comfortable and the best place in the Ringwood area.
