Yes, if you’ve been to nightclubs in other metros, sure, they’re more in number, but hey Chennai’s got a pretty good lineup of clubs to party at, okay? Whether it’s a lovely rooftop bar or a pub with a dance floor to bust some stellar moves, Chennai’s nightlife has come a long and wonderful way. So there aren’t many exclusive clubs to dance at, but there are plenty of resto pubs where you can still shake a leg. Here are some of the best nightclubs in Chennai you can head to for a night of awesome. Wear your best outfit and strike a pose. If you love to dance, we’d recommend keeping your heels at home for the night, ladies!
Bubble Foam Parties & Bolly Nights: Party It Up At These Awesome Nightclubs & Pubs
Not exactly a club, but Radio Room in MRC Nagar is one of our favourite places to go to on a Saturday night. Bust some moves to popular commercial tracks while sipping some delicious cocktails like their Pina Colada and Milo cocktail. The place tends to get really crowded and there really isn’t an exclusive dance floor, but you’d still want to fight your way for some space and sway to the chart toppers. If you don’t drink or dance, their appetisers are worth chowing down and you can always people-watch.
Since Radio Room shuts by 1 am we usually end up heading to Q Bar (part of The Hilton) in Guindy on Saturday nights. They have a lovely rooftop bar and dance floor where you can quite literally dance under the stars! The ambience is killer and you can even dine and drink at one of their more private cabanas. Head here when Chennai weather is kind and you feel like dancing till 3 in the morning!
This one’s for you Anna Nagar peeps. The recently launched pub Cycle Gap has special nights all through the week, so take your pick. Free Ya Vidu Fridays & Sassy Saturdays for commercial music nights and Soup Girls Night for ladies who want to avail their offer of 1+1 on cocktails from 8pm onwards. They’re even planning to give free drinks to ladies soon so watch out for this offer to make the most of your night! Enjoy retro music on the other weeknights; Sunday is exclusive for Bolly music.
Part of The Park hotel, the two-floored club, Pasha has been around for ages. The crowds here aren’t that impressive but these guys have special nights through the week and an exclusive dancefloor to shake a leg. Ladies you can get free drinks from 9pm to 11pm on Thursdays; Wednesdays are for desi jhatkas and matkas and on Saturdays they play Commercial and House Music. Keep an eye out for their special events —sometimes they organise fun UV glow & laser nights and bubble foam parties!
One of the few clubs in the city, Gatsby has a pretty big dance floor. The crowds aren’t the best but you can drop if you’re in the mood to dance. The space is pretty big and on Wednesdays ladies get free drinks from 11pm. Dance to everything from EDM, Hip Hop, Trap and Pop House mixes!
This restobar in the ever bustling KNK has a really funky ambience with its bright neon lights. On weeknights the music is a bit exceptionally loud but we don’t mind that on the weekends now, do we? On Wednesdays, ladies, grab their 1+1 offer on cocktails from the menu from 6 pm onwards (yes the party starts early here). Desi track lovers come by on Friday nights and if you love commercial tunes drop by on Saturday. Just note that again, there is no exclusive dance floor, but you still get to groove to the catchy tracks spun by the DJ. Plus, the food here is delicious if you want to skip the dancing and drinking.
