DISCLAIMER!!: Know Before You Go!
Guess it is time to make some sort of "Disclaimer" for this page and it seems that a tip in "Nightlife" would be the most appropriate place.
Someone left a comment on my Tijuana page about a girl who disappeared and was found about a week later. As the story went, the girl had disappeared, been abused and had contacted HIV.
There are many warnings and "horror" stories told about various cities throughout the world and Tijuana is no exception. However, though these stories are scary, horrendous and heartbreaking, they are not the "rule." How one chooses to react is a personal thing and I would never "second-guess" anyone's decision to go or not to go to a city with a
As for Tijuana, I live in San Diego and though a story such as this would usually make it in the news here, I have not heard of it, which doesn't make it untrue, just to say that I don't know details of this particular case.
I have been to Tijuana thousands of times over the past 40 years. I've gone with family, with friends and many times, alone. I've gone to the tourist sections, residential sections, non-tourist areas, I've gone during the day and at night, including coming home late at night, I've walked across and have driven, all without incident.
This is not to say that I am any sort of expert, just to say that I have had much more than a "tourist's" experience in this city without falling prey to danger. It is my firm belief that anything can happen to anyone in any country or in any city and as tourists it is our responsibility to keep a respectable amount of vigilance, where ever we may be.
Dress Code: Many of the horror stories I've known about or have heard of happening in Tijuana, are rare and in some way connected to drugs, drunkeness, sex, money or disrespectful behavior.
Of course I am not saying that anyone deserves what happens to them, I am saying that these terrible things do not normally happen to people who take reasonable responsibility for their own safety.

I've spent many wonderful and safe hours in Tijuana and hope you do too!Related to:

The night time crowd at this and the other two night clubs is, how should I put it? More energetic? Less inhibited? Well, yes you could say that.

Safari Club: An Eatery by Day. A Hot Spot by Night!
My friend and I stopped here for lunch. It was not a place I would have chosen, but deferred to her decision. Thankfully she took my suggestion that we share a dish rather than order two. The food was not delicious and the only thing that would have made it better would be a couple of Margaritas. This explains why Safari Club isn't mentioned in the Restaurant section.
As a nightclub however, it is a great place to go if you like loud music, dancing or playing volley ball! Yes. Volley ball!
Dress Code: Your guess is probably better than mine. I would say that the better you look the more attention you will get and leave dressing up to you.Related to:

Tia Juana Tilly's: At The Jai Alai Palace
El Fuente was the night club that I knew at the Jai Alai Palace and it was a popular place for Mexicans to go. Eventually it lost it's popularity and sometime later Tia Juana Tilly's opened up in that location. This is another of the hot spots in Tijuana for dancing and having the party of your life.
Dress Code: As always dress your best.

Tilly's Fifth Avenue: An Old Favorite
Yes, you saw this photo in the Restaurant Tips section. As soon as the waiters saw me taking the picture, they posed, so how could I not put them up twice? They stand outside ready to welcome you in.
Like many places on Revolution, Tilly's Fifth Avenue lives a double life. Restaurant by day and a great night club by night.
This is the place to go for a great time without over doing it. They offer security for their clients to insure a good time is had by all. You must be 18 years or older to enter after 8:00 p.m.
Dress Code: Dress your best, dress to impress or you'll be dancing alone.Related to:

Club AnimalE!: For The Young and Young At Heart
Clubs closer to the border tend to attract the younger client and the boundries that are crossed my not be to your liking. Keep this in mind when choosing a place to dance or have a few drinks. Club AnimalE shows signs that indicate this is not a place for the conservative minded person.
Of course, if you are looking for a walk on the wild side, FEVER@Club AnimalE may be just the place for you.

Any club on Revolution Avenue: Revolution Avenue
There are several clubs to party at on Revolution Avenue. Fridays, Saturdays and any long weekend are probably the best nights to visit to ensure a lively atmosphere.
If you want to see the wild college scene around San Diego, visit the clubs on Revoltion Avenue on Thursday nights. That's college night and the beers are even cheaper then.
There's usually little or no cover charge to enter the clubs, so feel free to go bar hopping when you don't like the music or there aren't enough cute girls.
Dress Code: The dress code in Tijuana is usually pretty casual. I've seen people inside the clubs dressed in shorts and tees.Related to:
