If you've never been, you have to experience Klute! To be honest, it was better a few years ago when they played cheesy music most of the time whereas they've gone a bit too popular with the music. They've also been told they can't sell quaddies using real vodka so it's 22% stuff now... Go out, be very drunk and... More

"I flippin' love klute!" (Insert irish accent here) Liz ready particularly enjoys the comfort of the surroundings and the overall pleasantries and ambience. The feng shui is just simply delightful!

No. Dont go here. No respect for human rights, people throwing up everywhere and the staff dont care. I would avoid at all costs! Save yourself and dont go to Europe's worst.

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

On the face of it, Klute should not be a popular nightclub, but it is. For some inexplicable reason packing yourself into that shoddy nightclub with your mates is a night rarely without it's stories. You really have to adopt a "I'm going to enjoy this and just get on with it" mentality if you are heading to Klute. If... More

As a venue, its outright disgusting. For the worst nightclub in Europe its excellent. Its grotty dance floors that are usually packed full of students who have drunk to much and think its the perfect time envelop are not a pretty site but the hot sweaty air filled with cheesy music and B.O. is an experience not to be missed....

Whereas certain people find becoming exceedingly inebriated on paint-stripper and listening to "cheese" enjoyable, for those with some shred of refinement, this is not an ideal place. The dance floor caters for a minimal group of people, and an illogically-placed step cuts the venue awkwardly in half, confining people to the dance floor. The décor and maintenance is shoddy and...

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
