( www.yab.it ; Via de' Sassetti 5r; 9pm-4am Oct-May) It's crucial to pick your night according
to your age and tastes at Florence's busiest disco club, around since the 1970s behind
Palazzo Strozzi. Thursdays is the evening the over 30s hit the dance floor - otherwise, the
set is predominantly student.
( www.spaceclubfirenze.com ; Via Palazzuolo 37r; admission €16 incl one drink; 10pm-4am) Sheer
size alone at this vast club in Santa Maria Novella impresses - the moment you walk it,
you know you are in for a good night of dancing, drinking, video-karaoke perhaps in the
bar, and a mixed student-international crowd. Put drinks on an eletronic card 'tab' and pay
at the end of the night (risk forking out €50 if you lose the card).

look good to get past the bouncers on the door at this Santa Croce club. Once in, Twice is
a relaxed club with stylish decor (chandeliers) and a hip cocktail-quaffing crowd. Music is
mainstream dance. Happy hour is 9pm to 11pm; don't expect action on the dance floor un-
til well past midnight.
(Via della Vigna Vecchia 21r; 11pm-4am Mon-Sat Sep-Jun) A variety of sounds energises the
crowd at this popular Florentine nightclub where 20-somethings dance until dawn.
