This small but extremely popular nightclub in Nuremberg is just the place you need to check out if you want to hear some professional bands perform live. Rock your body and unwind at the Pegnitzbühne, while reputed artists from around the globe perform thrice a week to a tireless audience. In the past, the Pegnitzbühne has seen artists such as guitarist Hannes Bauer, guitarist Adam Levy, British artist Paul Rose, and Richard Palmer James of Supertramp fame perform. This live music club also hosts concerts with tribute bands twice every month, and even provides newcomers and upcoming artists with a stage to showcase their talents.
What used to be the Kilian (named after the street its on), is now known as Planet Arts. The new name says it all really. Come and boogie the night away on one of two dance floors. The big hall has a dance floor that is surrounded by a number of bars, while the smaller hall includes a chill-out zone. On the weekends, Planet Arts is filled to the brim. DJ Polique and his assistant Ratko host 'Sexy Friday' and hip-hop and R 'n' B grooves fill the year and excite the crowds. Meanwhile, Frank Sonique and Uwe Bell are in charge of the big hall, where people enjoy 'All Hits to Party'. Danne Dee makes Saturday nights a favorite with his good selection of House and Trance. The Planet Arts, which recently celebrated its two year anniversary, also has theme nights on a regular basis.
The Market is a night club whose decor makes you feel as if you'd stepped into your local supermarket. You have to pass a check out point before getting to the fairly new club and alcohol in the rather bare interior is stored in what you'd usually be rummaging around for your frozen peas for. There aren't a lot of seats for tired bones but who cares when it means that there is more room to boogie? The dancefloor is futuristic with lots of video effects and psychedelic lighting. If you're tired of dancing you can head on down to the cellar which is ideal for having a chat over a drink. As far as music goes, the Market is a venue that specialises in Hip Hop, Drum 'n' bass, dance music and classic grooves - there really should be something for all, including those that like Progressive House and Trance.
This place has been the place to come for rock and metal since the eighties. The huge main hall is used for the main club nights (hard and classic rock on Fridays, hard rock and heavy metal on Saturdays), while a smaller room features indie, alternative and progressive industrial sounds. Softer sounds are played on Thursdays; the entry fee is also cheaper. Gigs and special events are organized on a regular basis. A rocker's paradise!
Planet Nightclub is the best place to dance until morning. With three specific dance areas, you can always hear what you want, whether its hip hop, house or the latest chart hits. There is usually a line to get in, so make sure to dress neat and fancy.
Dedicated to Latin American music, this club always has great beats and enthusiastic dancing.
An entity that ensures the cultural scene in the city remains vibrant and diverse, the Stadtteilzentrum Desi has been in existence since 1978. A center funded by the city funds, this center presents a good variety of programming, be it concerts or other performances. Also, there is a bar that offers a good mix of drinks. See the website or call to know more.
Although you can find Starclubs throughout Germany, none of them are as special as the one in Nuremberg. The team that launched Starclub here went on two open legendary venues such as 'Das Boot', a legend in its own right. The Starclub was originally meant to provide space for aspiring bands but soon, it turned into a meeting place for youths. There is always a good range of live-music on offer here and the cellar premises in the Maxtorgraben are dimly-lit and cosy. Choose between 11 different bottled beers and a range of drafts. Hot meals are served until midnight.
Want to party in an underground vault? Here is your chance! This unique club is located in a medieval-style cellar. It plays various types of music, but generally sticks to Ballermann hits. If you're planning on coming with a big group, it's a good idea to make a reservation; the seats go quickly.
When tourists inquire about where they can find a nice cafe, the locals often mention the Ruhestörung (Disturbing the Peace). This has been the city's darling for sixteen years and one wouldn't want to begin counting the number of students and teenagers that have 'forgotten' about their studies whilst whiling away their afternoons and evenings here. There have also been some legendary knees ups, from New Year's Eve dos to birthday parties and carnival balls. Every time the Ruhestörung begins to show signs of wear and tear it miraculously bounces back. The cafe is also popular for breakfasts and if you have some spare time pop in, place your order and then choose a table to sit at outside. What better place to watch the world pass by?
The MUZ Club (Musikzentrale) offers everything music lovers dream of. With its fantastic range of events that have included performances by artists like Bonaparte, Gymmick, The Broken Beats, OSB Crew, Blood Red Shoes, and Friska Viljor in the past, a visit to this club will definitely introduce your senses to a whole new dimension of musical grooves. Besides hosting events with various musical themes, the club is also available on rent for workshops, recordings, as well as rehearsals. Check website for performance timings, and additional details.
