Club 74

This small disco, funk and soul nightclub opened in 1958 and has been kept alive by its owners ever since, evolving with the times and fashions until the 70’s and 80’s where they decided to remain. Now a day, the same vinyls from that era are spun for a fun loving crowd that dances uninhibited on its funky lit up dance floor on Saturdays. The psychedelic decor of the place also maintains the now retro style that was once the latest trend making this club an off the beaten path experience in itself.
