From dusk to dawn: 5 advanced European cities for nightlife lovers
If you want to forget about gray weekdays, cold and seasonal depression, then our selection will be very welcome. Passion.ru has chosen several relevant areas for those who are ready to plunge headlong into the whirlpool of vibrant nightlife, how to have fun and enjoy every moment.
Remembering all the severity (even some stiffness) of the German mentality, it is difficult to even imagine that in this country you can relax (and make some noise), as it should. However, this is true. In Germany, you can find many nightclubs of various levels and be inspired by the parties that organize there.
The record holder for the number of such entertainments is, of course, Berlin, which is considered to be a
haven for various musical cultures (rock, electro-pop, underground and others), but techno remains the main popular direction that can be heard from almost every speaker. Just keep in mind that glamor and pathos are not honored here, so prepare yourself properly. In the meantime, you will wait in line for one of the most popular institutions in the city, a dream for any party-goer – the Berghain club, which is located in the building of the former power station, enjoy the indescribable atmosphere, explosive cocktails and fiery performances of the best DJs in the country. Time will pass unnoticed, and you will be charged with new emotions and impressions, which then share with friends and relatives.
Barcelona is famous not only for Antonio Gaudi’s masterpieces, but also for a variety of nightlife options: from coastal clubs and fun bars to trendy art spaces where you can listen to quality music from famous artists. The most impressive dancing parties and stunning sea views await you at the Eclipse Sky Bar, which looks like a sail and is located on the top floor of the W. Hotel. For those who are bored with truly crazy fun, we recommend going straight to La Fira club, around whose building is hung with curved mirrors to help you look at the situation from a different angle.
This city can really be called almost the main European capital of high-profile parties and entertainment. When you get here for the first time, you understand that it has its own special atmosphere and people practically don’t sleep here day or night, regardless of the time of year – dozens of concerts, events, show programs, discos take place here every day and you need to go everywhere. To enjoy the atmosphere, we advise you to visit the oldest club Escape, which seats about 2000 people and is considered one of the most fashionable places in Amsterdam. Also take a look at Paradiso – a famous club, in the building of which there was previously a church, and now there are concerts of world stars.
For some reason, most tourists are sure that Budapest is a calm romantic city, where only couples in love will feel comfortable, and everyone else will have to wait until the grandiose Sziget music festival begins and you can make some noise. However, everyone who really knows how to have fun knows that they never sleep in this city and you can always find entertainment and an institution to your liking – from the ancient pubs that the city was famous for to the pathos of nightclubs. For example, we recommend looking into the A38 – perhaps the most popular institution in Budapest, which, incidentally, has repeatedly received the title of “Best Night Club in the World.” Here you can find a large dance floor, a cozy restaurant, popular performers and a bohemian audience. We can say with confidence that you definitely won’t be bored this night. And for those who are interested in the communist past of the city, we recommend visiting Szimpla kert – a ruin pub where you can find excellent beer or something stronger.
Who believes that Belgium is too boring and old-fashioned can look into Antwerp. This city will be interesting not only for those who are used to conquering dance floors, but also for those who like to spend time in the company of friends with a cup of something like that.
In Antwerp, on every corner you can meet the famous Belgian pubs with hundreds of types of beer and other impressive local drinks. But if life isn’t sweet without music and your soul asks to dance, then you can find places where you can dance and listen to jazz or the most modern DJs, and then just relax in a quiet lounge. Party lovers will definitely be interested in Cafe d’Anvers – one of the most famous clubs located in the building where there was once a warehouse, so the owners of the establishment have kept spaciousness, stone walls, beams and other “warehouse” attributes in the interior. But lovers of talk recommend checking out Kulminator, the famous pub with over 700 types of beer. There is always a cheerful atmosphere and happy friendly people surround you.
