Full Up Club
This club is on the smaller side but it is an excellent one. The music is super fun to dance to and you won't lose your friends in a sea of people like you might in some of the other clubs. It's a little hard to find, so you might have to ask around for directions. The crowd is a mix of foreign exchange students and locals so you're able to talk and dance with many different kinds of people. The music varies and there is also a smoking lounge.
Bamboo Lounge Club
Bamboo Lounge Club is a great place for young adults and students to party. The music is great from European to American techno and many other worldwide DJs. Bamboo Lounge Club offers VIP tables and has two midsized bars. It is very clean and safe to be in. It is located on Via Giuseppe Verdi not far from the Duomo. The loud music, dancing, and exciting atmosphere gives people a chance to let loose and have fun. The club features mostly house, techno and hip hop music. Drink specials and themed parties are also part of Bamboo Lounge Club's Tuesday and Thursday night promotions.
If you love house and electronic music this is the best club to go to. It’s a two story club, located on the outskirts of Florence, features DJ’s from all around Europe, America, and Australia. This club also holds many concerts during the winter and summer. Many people come from all over to enjoy this clubs atmosphere. The dance floor is extremely large and is always very crowded. Be smart where you keep your bag and wallet because it’s very easy to get pick pocketed in large clubs like this. This club usually has a cover of €20 and the drinks are rather expensive, but it is a great place to experience at least once. It is very different than most of the clubs in Florence because of the multi-story building. To venture here would be best by taxi or bus. Since it is located in the outskirts of Florence walking could be difficult and not advised. There are many people who can help in directions in the Santa Maria Novella Station.
If you're looking to dance but don't want to travel to the outskirts of Florence, check out Space Club. It's described as a trendy, large club and bar with a 70's space theme. When the club isn't featuring a popular DJ from all around the world you can dance the night away to electronic beats and RnB jams. The club attracts tourists from all over the world but also houses lots of locals who flock the club from neighboring small towns outside the city. Be aware that this club has a card/system; you don't pay cover when you arrive. You're given a card and it is punched every time you order a drink 1st one is free. At the end of the night you have to cash out and pay the cover charge 10€ and pay for any additional drink you had about 8€. There is usually a long line at the end of the night so I would suggest leaving before closing 4am and most importantly, don't lose your drink card! The men here can be pretty aggressive so if that makes you uncomfortable, I suggest requesting VIP seating.
