The D60 is a better camera, but they both have the same image sensor, so the difference doesn't affect image quality.

Neither of those lenses would be particularly good for the things you say you want to shoot.

Both great cameras- though the 60D has a better viewfinder,faster available shutter speeds and a faster continuous frame rate(3.7 v 5.3 I think)- and it has a heavier/more rugged feel. Perhaps you'd appreciate the lighter 600D..?
As TCav suggests- neither lens is particularly suited to low light work,though given the 600/60D's impressive high iso performance- they might suffice...

Get a good flash for clubs. Even with say a 28 1.8 and high iso, you still will only get marginal photos in a club. A good flash will get you better photos in clubs if you spend the time to learn how to use an external flash properly. Because with a big aperture lens, and high iso. It is still going to be dark, and you will suffer form motion blur if your subject does not pose for a second.

Beach shots, it depends on what you are shooting at night. If you are going after a night seascape. A tripod would be what you need, and you can use either the kit lenses. But if it is a night beach party, you will need a flash like the club.

With either camera and a good external flash and iso set at 1600 you can actually get better results. But you need to spend some time reading up on flash photography.

My suggestion on lens for clubs the canon 28 1.8, and a good metz 50 or nissin di622 mkII flash for canon. Body is up to you. But with the subject matter and low light the 60D's AF has a big edge of the 600D with the 9 cross type points. Very useful in low light to get accurate focus.
