“A horror movie set at night”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

The club scene set in Metelkova is obviously closed at this time. Either it's always closed this time, or it's due to a banner that was hanging their, proclaiming their solidarity with one of the groups trying to fight for better life in Slovenia, and to fight against capitalism.
We strolled through here at night, and there was literally no one in this dark, secluded alleway. Dim lighting really enhanced the horror movie atmosphere The buildings are covered in unusual sculptures, brightly colored, with great attention to detail...almost everything, from a traffic sign, to left over barrels has become a small work of art. And the buildings are a part of it.
It looks like something really interesting and fun, but as I said, due to circumstances it's not...i don't know...working right now or whatever.
Nevertheless, even walking through here was a unique experience, leaving a sense of wonder, and a bit of fright...hope it livelys up soon.

“superb alternative clubbing”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

If you're looking for an alternative night out around Ljubljana this is the place to go - there are actually 4 clubs here (including a gay & bi club) each with its own identity. There's also a central courtyard/garden area where you can meet people so you don't even have to actually go to any of the clubs themselves.
You'll find this place packed out on any given night with students and party goers in general.
Drinks here are cheap by Ljubljana standards and entrance to clubs is usually less than 10-euros (if its not free - depends on which club you go to).

“The best place in Ljubljana!”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

I miss Ljubljana as the city very much, but from all the things there I miss Metelkova the most. I have never found any other place with such an atmosphere, people and look. It is beautiful! Slovene people at their best, very tasty Rakija, great vegetarian food, music. Everyone should visit it!
