Huge place with many different floors and rooms, where you can listen to different kinds of music. From techno to pop, you decide. There is also live performances. I enjoyed the place, free entry and you can even eat pizza inside! Smoking zone.More

If you’re a traveler don’t come here, the security swinging punches at people on the dance floor hitting innocent bystanders. Then when they are outside they decide to mace people for no reason!!! This place is an absolute hole, will not be returning.More

No, there isn't a fee entrance. You might go to Instant at 10/11 pm so you don't have to wait 2/3 hours. But if you want to skip the queue, you can pay about 15 euros (just ask to the staff outside)
