If your game is working wonderfully, it could be that it's the Hotspot feature. Simply read the newspaper each day and it should tell you which clubs will be hotspots that night. Most sims should be in these hotspots.
If your game is bugged (as most with this problem) it could be one of two things. First, your game could have a glitch that is calling all NPCs to one lot and leaving them there. I recommend grabbing AwesomeMod and using the "radar all" command to check if your sims aren't being sucked in by a certain lot.
Second, it could be due to the faulty way the sims 3 classifies your computer. For more on this, go to this post on the official forums and check the second post. Follow the instructions there and you should be set.
After this, take in mind that some nights clubs will be fuller than others. For example, in my game, I have a vampiress that plays all nights in a vampire club. Some nights, the club is complety deserted, others it has plenty patrons (despite not being a hotspot) so just observe.
