To be honest, it's a pretty awful place but that's the fun really. Don't go if you want a fancy dan place with lovely clean toilets, classy tunes, smiley staff and polite people. However do go if you want to meet some real people, listen to crap cheesy tunes and drink over-priced beer. You go for the distinction of having... More

since being voted the Worst Nightclub in Europe, Klute has gone from strength to strength! With the smoking ban Klute has extended into a lovely back garden smoking area making the crushed, crowded dancefloors with sweat dripping from the ceiling and walls much less of a problem. Although the smell of fags no longer covers that of sweat and beer,... More
