    P mode + E-TTL + Auto ISO does it all.

    As long as you don't burst continously shot after shot, the chances of the images coming out under-exposed is very low

    Good luck!I was very nervous when I began...and chatting with the people around you in the club will remove the tension.

    hmm any space to put a monopod / tripod?

    i think i'd do manual all the way... depends on situation, expose the background accordingly, den use the best overall iso, if yours have acceptable grains at 1600, den use 1600, so that can take action shots.

    - with flash: try using Tv mode, set 1/20s or 1/30s, ISO 400

    - if you have large aperture lenses e.g 50mm f/1.8, can consider using Av mode, set f/1.8, ISO 800 without flash

    i'm not really sure what a chillout bar is, but shooting without flash may give better 'atmosphere'?
