Top 10 Nightclubs Around The World You Must See
10. Chlosterli – Gstaad, Switzerland
Chosterli is a Swiss nightclub located in the oldest chalet in the mountain retreat of Gstaad. The cold weather in the place may give the false impression of a tepid nightclub scene. Chlosterli destroys that notion, with the stone floor emitting lights that evoke memories of the 70′s disco classic Saturday Night Fever. The place is actually a restaurant during the daytime, before it transforms into a hip nightclub in the evening. The place really comes to life during the peak winter months of December and January when Gstaad is inundated with rich tourists and socialites.
9. Club Aquarium – London, United Kingdom
Club Aquarium is the place for old school partying in London. The place offers guests not just a chance to rave in the dance floor, but also an opportunity to dip in the Jacuzzi or to partake in cocktails by the pool. Every so often, the club hosts a Carwash night when it plays 70′s funk, disco and soul music and 80′s new wave stuff. Adding to the fun is the penchant of guests to dress up for the occasion, so expect huge hair and outfits straight out of the 70′s and 80′s.
8. Cocoon Club – Frankfurt, Germany
Cocoon Club is a German club owned by Sven Vath, one of the most popular DJs in the world. The nightclub can accommodate 1,200 at any given time. As expected of any nightclub, Cocoon Club has tremendous acoustics that is complimented really well by the beautifully designed interiors. It boasts of a complete 360-degree honeycombed wall that covers the main area, thus acting as a projection screen for video effects. Vath himself handles the music every Friday and Saturday, with the rest of the week reserved for his friends and contacts in the electronic music world.
7. Guacara Taina – Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
Also known as The Cave, Guacara Taina is a nightclub situated in a cave that is more than a few million years old. The entrance itself is at street level, but it quickly goes down to an inner portion of the cave that serves as one of the three dance areas. These dance floors are uniquely placed in natural crevices. The beauty of the nightclub is the natural superior acoustics that the place provides that allows guests to really feel the thumps of the music. Every Friday is merengue night, as the club celebrates the dance that originated in the Dominican Republic.
6. Halikarnas – Bodrum, Turkey
Halikarnas is a nightclub in the resort town of Bodrum in Turkey. The club fronts the beach and is in the open air. It can accommodate up to 10,000 people in an area surrounded by palm trees and Roman-style pillars. It boasts of mind-boggling laser and light shows, with a fountain measuring 85 feet high right in the center. The parties really take off from May to October, with well-known DJs from around the world providing the music entertainment. The lineup of events changes extremely fast, so guests can expect variety and unpredictability each night they visit the place.
5. La Fira – Barcelona, Spain
La Fira is a nightclub in the Catalan city of Barcelona. What makes it unique is that the place is adorned with equipment from a funhouse. Thus, your chair may be a bumper car or a teacup. The bar and the stand selling food items are actually old style stalls. Even the mirrors in the place are of the funhouse variety. Expect a distorted face and body when checking out your look while inside the nightclub. There are theme nights regularly, mostly of the circus and fun varieties.
4. Le Batofar – Paris, France
Paris is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and one way of viewing the sights is through the river. That is where the nightclub Le Batofar is situated. The club sits on top of a barge in the Seine. It was carefully designed and planned so that the acoustics will remain top notch. The place is especially popular during special evenings, like New Year’s Eve, when the music can go on for 15 hours straight with the booth being manned by big name DJs.
3. Miniscule of Sound – London, United Kingdom
While based in London, the Miniscule of Sound is actually a traveling nightclub that has gone to places like Australia and China. It is considered as the smallest nightclub in the world by Guinness Records. The club can only accommodate up to 14 people but provides amazing acoustics and lights straight out of the heyday of disco. A plus thing about the Miniscule of Sound is that it does not charge any cover fee, though because the capacity is limited, guests are expected to be wild and fun.
2. Privilege – San Rafael, Ibiza, Spain
Ibiza has always been known as a party place, with live sex shows a regular thing until as recent as 1998. In this party town, nothing beats Privilege, a nightclub that can accommodate 10,000 people. Considered as the biggest nightclub in the world, the club seats in an area measuring 30,000 square feet. It has 16 bars, a viewing dome, swimming pool, stage area, garden and, of course, a dance floor. Mondays are Manumission Nights featuring girls in skimpy costumes and suggestive performances.
1. Skye – Sao Paulo, Brazil
Skye is a nightclub situated on the rooftop of Hotel Unique, which is already an attraction in itself because of its cutting edge contemporary architecture. Guests of the nightclub are afforded an uninterrupted view of the city skyline, as there are no railings or walls to block the view. Its owners deliberately left the club open and sparse to allow a stunning view of the sky. There is also a pool that can be used, and those using it will not have to miss a beat because there are speakers under the water. The club is open 24 hours a day, though non-hotel guests can only access the place during certain hours.
