Some of the best nightlife experiences can be found in Europe as its home to many renowned party cities. For some of you, travelling is a non-stop party and checking out Europe’s biggest and best clubs is a holiday in itself. If you’re a certified partygoer, keep reading for our top recommendations on where you need to be this summer to ensure the party never stops…
The Shelter in Amsterdam
If clubbing is on the agenda, you’ll find a lively clubbing scene in the city of Amsterdam – a wild night out is obligatory here. The Netherlands birthed the likes of Tiesto and Armin van Buuren into global music culture, so trance is huge in Amsterdam. If quality house and techno is your jam, get yourself to The Shelter – a basement venue in the iconic A’dam Toren tower. Here, you can look forward to intense but unforgettable evenings. With a 24-hour licence, an all-black theme and an incredible bass sound system, nights spent here aren’t for the faint hearted.
If after many nights partying you wish to relax in style, book your stay at the NH City Centre and enjoy great value and a great location.
Salon zur Wilden Renate in Berlin
Similar to Amsterdam, Berlin is another destination that lives and breathes techno, however, it’s not hard to find plenty of other genres in a city where the party never stops. If you’re here to check out techno, Berghain is a popular choice and is better known as the ‘church of techno’. Alternatively, experience circus fun at Salon zur Wilden Renate instead! If you’ve never done clubbing in a circus before then get ready for the wild atmosphere here. This club has an amazing décor and many dance floors – be careful not to get lost in this bizarre venue.
Decided on Berlin for your party weekend? The Michelberger Hotel Berlin is a fab base for all your partying needs whilst providing you with a nice refuge in between nights out.
Mazel Tov in Budapest
Budapest may not be on your radar as being a party destination, but it should be! The Hungarian capital is home to a number of unique venues. If you’re looking for a stylish party, Mazel Tov is a force to be reckoned with. This venue is a giant courtyard lined with flora and draped in fairy lights and all covered by a glass roof – Insta-friendly? We think so. Head here for an impressive cocktail menu and for an evening that is definitely worth the hype.
If Budapest is your party destination of choice, book a stay at the Continental Hotel Budapest and be right at the heart of the action.
Berns in Stockholm
If you’re looking to party but also want to meet someone new… the capital of Sweden is full of beautiful people, so get exploring and get socialising! It’s common knowledge partying in Stockholm doesn’t come cheap, so having a tipple in your hotel room before you leave isn’t the worst idea. When you head out, spend your evening at the popular nightclub Berns. Here, catch live music as well as international DJ sets aplenty. The state-of-the-art dancefloor, combined with lasers and music in all forms, is the perfect setting for drinking and dancing into the early hours.
You want to do Stockholm but are price conscious? Then book a stay at the budget-friendly Hilton Stockholm Slussen where price doesn’t sacrifice quality.
Level27 in Warsaw
For those of you on a budget that can’t stretch as far as Stockholm, Warsaw is a great alternative. Expect to pay as little as one euro for a vodka shot – but a word of advice, don’t try and outdrink the Poles, it’s a losing battle! Level27 is a stylish venue and allows its visitors to party underneath the stars. Located on the 27th floor in the Atlas Tower, the views of the city skyline are unforgettable from this venue. The club consists of two zones, so if heights aren’t your thing, party inside instead!
For that much needed ‘morning-after’ relaxation, book your stay at the Warsaw Marriott Hotel and revel in the luxurious touches before heading back out.
Lucerna Music Bar in Prague
Similar to Warsaw, Prague is another party hotspot which is affordable and stunning too! The drinks are cheap and the nights are long – the DJs are top class too. The Czech Republic boasts an abundance of great beers so if you’re a beer drinker, look forward to sampling many tasty ones in Prague. The Lucerna Music Bar is one of Prague’s largest nightclubs but don’t be fooled, this venue fills up quick, especially on 80s and 90s nights! Of course, you can experience other genres in this vibrant city, but you can’t go wrong with cheesy pop, right?
Prague is cheap so splash out on your accommodation. With a stay at the Four Seasons Hotel Prague, you’ll have a blast thanks to the hotel’s great party spot.
Cavo Paradiso Club in Mykonos
If you’ve had wild nights, it gets wilder in Mykonos. Once summer hits, the party never ceases – you’ll probably be feeling the vibe with a drink in hand before noon! Mykonos is a friendly island and welcomes everyone. The Cavo Paradiso Club is beachfront and is one of Mykonos’ more famous clubs. A huge player when it comes to nightlife, top DJs perform here attracting thousands of people each summer. If you fancy experiencing this mega club during your time in Mykonos, beat the crowds and book in advance.
If you’re seeking accommodation that is great value for money and boasts a beach party location, the Horizon Boutique Hotel Mykonos is for you.
Pink Champagne in Hvar
Hvar is a favourite in the Adriatic and attracts a vibrant crowd. This Croatian island exudes beauty and many of its clubs and bars are waterfront. Hopefully you’re an early riser as the beach parties begin at noon! Many of Hvar’s nightspots attract the rich and famous and the Pink Champagne is no different. This luxurious venue creates a great buzz and is the place to be to catch cabaret and regular DJ parties. The fun begins at around 2am, so when everyone else is tired, hit the dancefloor at the Pink Champagne!
The Pansion Marjan is a hotel of great value in Hvar and situated close to town means you needn’t go far to hit the tiles.
If you decide to hit up the European clubs this summer, please remember to enjoy and drink responsibly as always!
