I am new to the forums and pretty new to pick-up. I turned 21 within the last few months, so now there are many more possible pickup locations for me to choose from, which is very exciting. I recently read "Revelation", and I am eager to take my philosophical and theoretical understanding of pickup into the field.
However, as someone who recently turned 21 and is new to pickup, I don't know the best places to go to practice, which I think everyone agrees, is the only way to improve. I know the obvious answer is to go to bars and clubs, but we all know that not all bars and clubs are created equal. For example, some places have way too many dudes or play such loud music that conversation is nearly impossible. Now I know that master pick up artists can pick up women in almost any environment, but I am looking for optimal places to go out strictly for practicing pick up.
Therefore, I thought that this thread could be one where people share the places in major U.S. cities (and around the world) that they have gone to, which have good environments for practicing pick up. Now, I am not inviting people to share anecdotes like "this place is awesome, because I had sex with this one girl I met there". I am looking for people to share places that normally have a lot of women, do not have music too loud to carry on conversation, and are laid out so that approaching sets of women is physically possible.
Now I know that we all live in different places and some of us don't even live in big cities. However, I think that with the large membership of this forum, we can help a lot of aspiring PUAs to more efficiently find locales where they can hone their craft. So, feel free to share any favorite locations for picking up women that you have gone to in your own city or in any other city you have visited.
P.S.- The cities I am most interested in at the moment are Philadelphia and Washington DC.
