Clubbing in Europe is very diverse and in different cities the word club can have different meanings. Not all clubs are about ‘partying’ and clubs that primarily target the tourists with flyers may not be the best places to go if your simply looking for good music and atmosphere.

If you don’t you could find yourself in a pole dancing club (Riga and Prague immediately spring to mind) and if your English speaking attitudes to towards you may not be very friendly because in these types of clubs the English have a reputation for bad behaviour. These clubs are rarely about music.

All over europe there are supposed nightclubs which are a front for prostitution or casino gambling sometimes both. These types of clubs seem to be prevalent in Bucharest Kiev and Moscow but not solely. Again these clubs are not renowned for their sounds.

So if your looking for music as opposed to getting laid a good move is to try and find out where the locals go. A word of caution here many as people will flag down a taxis and ask the driver to take them to a good club. This is not always a good idea particularly as in some cities taxis drivers get commission from the clubs they drop people off at. We are aware of this happening in Amsterdam Prague and Riga to a limited extent however it is a very common in Budapest and a recipe for getting seriously rinsed:

So called nightclubs in Budapest recommended by local taxis drivers frequently pay the drivers a commission not just for taking you there but also a percentage of what you spend. Consequently the drivers will do their level best to drop you off at these clubs. If you ask them to take you to a specific club they may say your club is no good, very expensive or closed and then suggest one of these joints.

If you fall for the scam one inside the club you will be charged some of the highest prices in Europe.for your drinks to cover ex’s like the commissions to the taxis drivers You need to especially aware of clubs where they add your drinks to a tag or bill which when you leave will include ghost rounds. Asking to see the manager, refusing to pay or not having the money to pay is not an option in these situations. The protocol here is for you to be press-ganged or forcibly marched to the nearest ATM cash machine by a very well built disagreeable and impatient ‘security’ guard. After all this you then have the problem of getting home – you could get a taxis but perhaps that not a good way to start or end a night out clubbing.

 Clubbing & Nightlife In Europe
Tirana Albania and Prague the Czech Republic may cater for Jazz enthusiast, and the latter along with Bratislava Slovakia, Ljubljana Slovenia, Riga Latvia, Tallinn Estonia, Vilnius Lithuania may be the places for clubbers into house and techno – though all of these cities may be end up being outbids for the European crown by Belgrade Serbia which offers good music clubs and dance clubs which are amongst the most friendly in Europe.

Another city Skopje Macedonia has several good clubs but recent changes to the licensing laws here are not likely to see many more opening.

The city guides contain information on Clubbing & Nightlife in the music and dance clubs in these very diverse Eastern Europe cities. House & Techno music is an international language with the latter a major influence on the club scene across Eastern Europe with Belgrade in Serbia seemingly the hub.

Visitors should not that venues describing themselves as ‘nightclubs’ are often not devoted to music. This may be a secondary activity to restaurant and casino and more physical interests.

These ‘nightclubs’ may play less specialised sounds ( middle of the road) and those that are directly aimed at businessmen may ( but not always) have a more personal agenda than dancing. It should also be noted that because a club plays on house Friday it may not necessarily do the same on Saturday.

Live bands are a regular feature of many clubs. We welcome info about any clubs you feel should be mentioned in these guides – please write to us at post@euromost.info For further details of clubbing, nightlife, dance clubs music clubs in each city see our clubbing and nightlife guide in each city guide.

Local tourist board links in these guides are also a good source of additional information Details of Nightlife, Clubbing and Music Clubs for euromost cities are available directly via the links on the left.
