Dance in Bologna

The dance route in Bologna starts from the Two Towers as, just a stone’s throw away, by walking down a staircase with no sign (there is no need to show off, even though look and appearance are its main characteristics) you arrive at Kinki. 40 years of club culture. An underground venue celebrated internationally which, when it first opened, became a catwalk for the most extravagant looks, a real ground for visual experimentation analysed by both design magazines and art critics, a place where you were granted admission only if your look perfectly integrated with that of the others.

The same atmosphere made of hedonism stratified over the years can also be experienced at the nearby Hobby One, a compulsory stop in a night spent discovering the path of dance music in the city, which then ventures into the most recent Qubo and more sumptuous Millennium.

All these are venues that are promoted by word of mouth, a fact that truly reflects their spirit, as they thrive as clubs rather than discos. The idea, is to be a meeting place for groups of people sharing the same passion for music and dancing. This also means that it only takes a short while for you to feel like a regular, part of the city’s club culture. And maybe this is the truly distinctive trait of Bologna’s nightlife in addition to the high quality of music. One which can be found throughout the dance floor network.

Remaining in the city centre, at Arteria (a series of underground rooms - a recurrent characteristic of Bologna’s clubs) or in the new night “district” along Parco del Cavaticcio among the ancient vaults of the fantastic Cassero and Forno del pane nearby.

From here, the route leads back to clubs like Link, Matis, Locomotiv and Zona Roveri, which connect city centre and suburbs in an uninterrupted exchange of experience and sounds that make Bologna Italy’s club capital.
