    Nefertiti: Going out for Jazz and Funk

    by gubbi1 Written May 26, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nefertiti is a Jazz club, which offers concerts, but also evenings for dancing. At least in my time 1996-2000 it was quite popular, but it seems nothing changed when looking at the concerts they offer.

    Valand: Old and reliable

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Somehow me and my friends always seem to end up at Valand for some reason. It's a reasonably big place with two dance floors, three bars if I remember correctly. Sometimes there are concerts. There's also a restaurant in the same bulding.

    Dress Code: Nothing special, but I think the bouncers sometime make one up....

    Rather than mention my expereinces there, both good and bad... I'll just list the places I went.
    Excet, Nouvo, Dancing Dingo, Dubliner, and a few others I forgot the names, but they're all great places on different nights.
    drinks are expensive, bring some booze with you and have a few before going out. Don't over do it... and I'm not going to tell you my story.

    Dress Code: dress casual, but conservative. Take a clue from how the locals are dressed in the day time... try not to look like a jackass tourist. Don't go out in that repulsive red, white & blue Harley Davidson jacket.

    If you well into the club...

    If you well into the club scene don't expect too much from this city. Goteborg is still stuck in the Scandinavian 'cheesy' zone, which means nearly all clubs are playing club pop tunes and nordic cheesy tracks. Great if you like that sort of stuff, but I need to have drunk a few beers before I can let myself in these places cos I think it sucks. Having said that if your lucky and don't mind asking around you might find some places playing good trance.
    Most clubs are on Avenyn, but its worth exploring around. There are really great pubs here, Irish, English, Spanish but drinks don't come cheap. Happy hours are frequent after working hours. Well worth a trip if you fancy a couple of beers. A nice place I was introduced to was Centro Espanol, really hidden away, run by a Spanish family, great cheap San Miguel and wine, and tapas are excellent although not vegetarian....I just know this from friends. Can't remeber the address but its probably better to ask someone because I nearly didn't find it.
    BRING ID. There is a stupid system here that if your not heading into your thirties then you can't mingle with people that age. Age groups are segregated into which clubs you are allowed to go in. This sucks if your 20 or 24. I just reccommed getting drunk and telling the bouncer that your a tourist and your afraid you'll lose your passport if you bring it out, then they can't tell how old you are and its pretty much luck...
    TAXIS: ORDER THEM or you could end up paying three times more. Mini taxis are great and cheap (TEL 140 140 or 150 150). You can use all major credit cards in them also.

    Dress Code: Dress up. Swedes are definately not scruffy people. No trainers. Try and make yourself look old if you want to try and get into the older clubs. Otherwise you'll probably end up with a disapointing night.

    Before you go out

    Before you go out in Sweden make sure you get a bit of duty free Vodka down you (and the Red Bull helps too)...
