    Bank Dance Hall: Spinning all night long

    ***NOTE: BANK DANCE HALL HAS CLOSED.***

    ***Now another club, Retropolis is operating in the same building, but I've never been there and as I see its audience, it's quite unlikely that I'll ever go there. Sometimes there is a sort of Bank Dance Hall reunion party held there - I'm sceptic about it.***

    ***Original tip***
    This is the place that everyone under 30 knows as "The Bank". It's an extremely popular disco club - just look at the lines after 11 pm... A meeting point for the city's youth - my favourite party place. In the summer, you shouldn't leave your wallet at your hotel - but drinks are relatively cheap, and the entrance fee is also bearable (varies bw/ 1000-3000 HUF). Be prepared - girls are more than hot there...
    There are three storeys in this classical building designed by Eiffel: disco classics, house/trance, Hungarian/funky. When you need more oxygen than available inside, you might go out to the balcony and suck in some fresh air.

    Dress Code: ***Don't bring your winter jacket - show as much as you may show.

    Bank Dance Hall: Maybe it was just slow that night

    I went there on a Friday, because it was Friday and this was supposed to be a happening place. Guess I picked the wrong night, because there was hardley anyone there. Maybe about 60 people total.

    There were 2 of 3 dance areas open that night. Te first played a lot of hip hop, r&b, and general American pop. The next floor had the techno pumping. Now I could tell that this place probably has seen some wild times, it just wasn't that night. The few people there were pretty easy on the eyes, so that wasn't a total loss, but all in all, I was disappointed.

    Just make sure you know of something that is supposd to be there before you go.

    Dress Code: Jeans are cool. Everyone was pretty urban casual if you know what I mean.
