'make it down to the club'


New Member
From the phrase "Thank everyone who made it down to the club." I guess, it is something like "reach the club" or "arrive at the club". Am i right and what was the origins of this expression?

    It's one of the many meanings of make given in the Wordreference dictionary.
    make it:
    • to achieve success: He really seems to have made it: big house, good job, beautiful family.
    • to arrive on time: I just made it to that meeting!
