Overview
More
VISA and MASTERCARD accepted (£10 Minimum Spend) We are the longest standing nightclub in Durham, our carpets may not be clean, our toilets are NOT the "Ritz", but we are the most fun you can have in durham with your clothes on. . Expect a young and fun student crowd, 6 nights a week, with no heirs or graces, and the only thing stickier than our carpets is the memories that stick with our customers for over 12 generations of students, for over 40 Years. . Our DJs play "The Baywatch Theme", "S-Club 7", "Bewitched" and ALWAYS "Thats Amore" by Dean Martin as our last song of the night, and we are proud of it. . The Worst Nightclub in Europe? Maybe... but this is stuff dreams are made of! Dress down or dress up... everyone is equal here, have a drink of beer thats never too dear, dance like no ones watching, laugh, cry and die inside a little to our cheesy-as-hell playlist. . And that weird physics post grad in the corner SWEARS he's Donald Sutherland.

Me and my boyfriend came to Durham for a get away during the holidays. As I'm unable to get the time off work during a weekend, we came for a week day break. Thought Klute looked a great place to be as it advertises for...More

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...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...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...More

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...More
