If you want to have fun and party like there is no tomorrow, pick this one! Club Hollywood is a trendy and popular nightclub in Tallinn, frequented by an upscale crowd of locals and tourists alike. It is located very conveniently at the edge of old town and is close to the main bar circuit and old town square. The club accommodates up to a thousand people, features state of the art sound and light, funky lighted colourful dancefloor and a full wall video screen.
Dress Code: MEN: Dress according to season. There is no great restrictions but don't pick beach trousers or sandals.

The city of Tallinn is dotted with lots of casinos offering games of slot machines. Casino Olympic is the largest chain of casinos in Tallinn in particular and Estonia in general. Other popular chains of casinos in Tallinn include the City Casino and the Casino Grand Prix. Most casinos open to the public for 24 hours during the weekends, weekedays perhaps up to 5.00 a.m. in the morning.
Please remember to bring along your passports before entering casinos. The reception staff at the casinos will register your personal details from your passports as required by the Estonian law. Unlimited refreshments such as coffee or tea are served free-of-charge to gamblers in most of the casinos in the city of Tallinn. It is absolutely ok to try your luck especially when you are on vacation in a foreign land!
Dress Code: Decent clothing is required.
If you're craving a mellow evening, head to the Coca-Cola Plaza behind the central post office where you can catch a movie (in either Estonian or English). Be sure to enquire before buying your ticket, as to what lanuguge the movie is in. ;-) The ticket was high; for the same price I could have seen two shows at the concert hall. You'll be issued an assigned seat, and from what I could tell, people stuck to their assignments. (Shh, don't tell anyone, but as the room was only 1/4 occupied, I changed my seat ;-) I know, shame shame.
The buttom of the Coca-Cola Plaza contains a internet cafe. This is the place to touch base with friends back home or to plan out your next day's events. Note: the toliet here is not free, you'll need a coin to insert into the door.
You could find many nightclubs and discos in Estonia. Anyway, in case you are in summertime or in a spring weekend I think the best way to enjoy the nighttimes is just the outdoor atmosphere. If you are in Tallinn, for example, the Hall Square and around, as Viru street, are really very good chooses. For the example of Tallinn, there are very pleasant streets with lots of lovely bars, restaurants, and pubs, just in the old town.
This was an unexpected find in Parnu, Estonia. we were there for the Summer Arts shin dig, and i happened to stubble across this club. we were there from thursday to the following saturday, so i was able to play there 2 fridays in a row. it was great both nites. they both had music playing inside adn a outside stage with the sea as a backdrop... for live dance music...like ian van dahl. drinks are fairly pricey...but it's ok...not like you have to be terribly drunk to enjoy. the estonian guys there are vultures...and the ladies are scantly dressed...very thin and sexy. the second nite i went they have a bikini themed nite...inside: excellent drum and bass and light show. outside:guest DJ's, light show, and foam party. it was a great time...danced the nite away until dawn! well, actually it never really gets dark there during the summer...the sky is a royal blue at 1am-2am...never pitch black.
open only fri 21pm-03am & sat 21pm-03am winter and summer months.
Dress Code: depends on the nite...if there is a theme or not. however, the Estonian youth love to get dressed up. like i mentioned before...females were scantly dressed...slinky dresses that barely covered anything, etc.
There are very many different pubs, bars, restaurants, clubs etc. in Tallinn as well as in all the larger towns. My favourite pob in Tartu for example is Wilde, and my favourite club - Tallinn. In Tallinn my own favourite pub is Von Krahl and the most popular club either Hollywood or Bon Bon. In any city or town you could just stop any young guy or girl on the street and ask the person to suggest something and I doubt that you will get two same answers :). So anyway - you'll have plenty of things to do.
Every summer on June 23, is held the St.John's day (Midsummer Day -Jaanipäev). It is usually (it depends on weather) open-air party, that lasts all night and the night is ''white''.
From late May to the middle of July the night is as bright as early morning or evening. It is called ''White nights''
Dress Code: Warm clothes and the bonfire is required
When you want to dance in Tallinn, i would suggest Decolte club or club Hollywood and you can dance night away!!!!!
When you want to dance while listening live band then you should try Amigo Club in Viru Hotell or Guitar Safari in Old town..also in both places you can eat and drink as much as you can :)))))
Nice pubs i like are Molly Malone in Town Hall Square
and Kloostriait in vene street. In Molly Malone you can just chill out while listening band and drinking beer and Kloostriait is best place to meet new people!
The best way for nightlife is starting with some bar in Old town(centre of city) and after go to disko or disko-bar.
Dress Code: if you want to go out, you have to dress something comfortable and elegant, but not so official. It may be nice trousers or skirt and else what you want. In general it's your fantasy with general rule: no formal (especially for girls).
There is a techno club called 'Hollywood' in the main town which every body knows and you cannot fail to find,,,here is the website
Banging Techno beats and assured a good night and relatively inexpensive as clubs go...
The age group varies alot and so does the nationality on the weekdends I have spent there most people are either local or from Finland they tend to hop accross the small sea crossing and take advantage of the cheaper alcohol prices,,, not too slow on the uptake are the Finnish and Swedes,, though when I finally talked to some natives they were a little less than happy with the idea of the Finnish people driving accross on the ferries at the weekends and doing all their grocery shopping then filling their huge 4wd cars up with cheaper petrol and scuttling off back over to Finland,, I guess the stark contrast in money and spending habbitts can become all too apparent when this is noticed... but they know how to party the old Estonian's never a dull moment to be had....
Dress Code: smart no jeans or trainers
Club Avenue , Situated about 100m from Nimite ( Pub with no name , as opposed to the one with a name).
This place makes for a seedy night out and albit of an interesting one. As far as i know this place does not close. It also's doubles as a restaurant , quite decent food too, peppered steak really hits the spot at 5 am , beleive me. On a sourer note is the patrons of this place. I'd been in Tallin about a week before I ever went here and had no bad experiences whatsover prior to this. Anyway I'm polishing off my steak and get chatting to this immense bald Irish bloke called Phil , he'd been working in Estonia a couple of years and was drowning his sorrows after breaking up with his russian girlfriend. We're sitting down at a table nursing a couple of pints when a fight breaks out. Anyway this huge guy is knocking lumps out of this little drunk fellow , while the formers girlfriend looks on excitedly ( bets on she startd it!!). Anyway it looks like the big guy is finished and heads back to his table, oh..wait a minute , he's picking up his metal stool, and proceeds to beat the little chap unconcious. At this point I'm none too impressed and stand up, only to have Phil's hand on my shoulder ' Sit down , remember this is not Scandinavia'. Good point Phil , security then eject the losing drunk. Anyway it is a good example of having to keep your guard up a bit more than you would in any of the Scandinavian countries.
A better bet for nightlife than Tallin is Tartu , nice natural people who are interested in more than the size of your wallet.
Another thing you should watch out for here is if a really cute girl sits with you and asks for a drink. Tell her politely to leave or that you are expecting company , well do so if it does'nt happen often. The chances are that she is a prostitute and the two blokes in the table behind you are her minders. Proprieters of Avenue turn a blind eye to this , just forget about it cause the chances are that you'll end up in a world of s**t.
