True to its name, the penthouse is in the top floors of the hotel Astoria, stretching over two floors and generous outdoor terrace areas with views of the town and the mountains. But when things get going here, most people are more interested in viewing who is dancing either side of them. DJs play house and chart hits from the 70s to today every Thursday, Friday and Saturday and every speck of floor between the sofas and the bar is used for dancing.
Following a redesign, this dance bar reopened with a new look: leather sofas, raw brick and urban chic, a kind of faux "rundown" style. DJs play latin, hip hop, reggaeton and RnB. Open for private events only.
With its red velvet curtains and gallery, Madeleine is little piece of New York style in Lucerne, located in a former porn cinema. They host occasional concerts / performances and always have DJs on the weekend attracting a mixed crowd. It usually gets pretty busy on weekends and has separate non-smoking and smoking floors.
The roadhouse is a big club right in the centre of town, just across from the railway station, with three floors and party DJs every night of the week. With their extremely long opening hours, this is a pit stop for all those who don't want to go home yet - or who want to start early. You can always count on the Roadhouse, there is something going on every night of the week.
Embedded within the Neo-Baroque lakeside Grand Casino building (entrance on the roadside of the building), Casineum is made up of three different spaces. The main hall, the gallery overlooking the main hall and the more minimalist club room. The programme includes jazz concerts and improvisation theatre battles in the early evening and club nights later on the weekends. It is possible to reserve space in the lounge / gallery for you and your friends via the website (based on a minimum consumption), this will save you from having to queue outside.
