Few pursuits tap into the pleasures of nightlife more than dancing. Giving yourself over to the rhythms, the lights, and the energy is a total release. When you want that feeling, we'll introduce you to the best dance clubs in Vienna. Top DJs get things moving, and other patrons ensure that there's plenty to see along the way.

Situated in the Millenium City on the banks of the Danube and easy to reach by train or underground, this is for party-people. There are 2 dance floors: the Danceclub for dance-hits old and new, and the Talstation which simulates an Apres-Ski atmosphere. Every Wednesday there's the After-Job-Party with entry and buffet, and a cocktail happy-hour from 6pm to 10pm. Thursday is ladies' night, and Saturday is singles night when over 25s get a free bottle of Prosecco. (1-253-0800)
Once alternative, now pretty mainstream, always hugely popular. Don't go to chat: the music system is famous for its quality and decibel output. DJs playing techno, house, etc. and there are occasional live acts. Garden next to the Danube Canal with a Würstelstand (hot-dog stand) in summer. (1-533-7525)
Based on the concept of flexibility and mobility, the program ranges from reggae night on Tuesday to hip-hop & R'n'B night on Saturday. You can swing your hips on "Salsa Afterwork" Thursdays or look out for and go along to a one-off event. It is a great location: wander through the peaceful, manicured gardens between the Burgtheater and the Hofburg during the day, and return at night to one of the liveliest atmospheres in the city.
