Night game - most target rich = loudest

That sums up the problem... The best places where I live also have loud ass music, even if its just a bar.

Is this a common problem everywhere? I basically have to lean in or raise my voice right by someone's ear to open in a lot of these places. There goes the group discussion. Should I just go to lesser places if I'm just strictly practicing?

I've also been debating just driving about an hour and a half to LA on weekends and driving home or getting a cheap hotel... If for no other reason than more women and less shitty environments.
