Coming from Amsterdam, I’m always interested in discovering hidden techno clubs in Milan. Dude Club is my latest discovery and I love it! It has a nice, relaxed atmosphere and the acoustics are very good.
Although last year they had a few big names: Dixon, Nina Kraviz, Ben Klock and Guy Gerber among others, they don’t always host the biggest DJ’s. But somehow you forget about it when you enter. It’s one of those clubs where the importance of the DJ doesn’t really matter: it turns into a big party anyway.
Like every club in Milan, you can get a table for the night. I wouldn’t recommend it at Dude. It’s between the entrance and the bar so you will miss out on the party that’s going on closer to the DJ booth.
The line at Dude Club is usually really big so it’s better to go earlier (before 1 am). Although the club will be quite empty, it’s better than standing outside for more than half an hour! And unlike some clubs in Milan (Tunnel or Plastic) they almost never reject you at the entrance. Appearances don’t matter at Dude Club, and that’s one of the reasons why the atmosphere is laid back and you will have a great night !
