Nightlife in Essen

There are several clubs in Essen. Unfortunately, not all of them are close to the main station. Below you can find some clubs which are close to the main station and which were tested a bunch of times.

A little reminder – Sometimes you have bad luck and the security may refuse entry. There could be hundreds of different reasons. Do not be disappointed and just go to a different club. But keep in mind, especially drunk people will usually not be allowed to enter a club. Also never forget to bring an identification document. Sometimes people look younger than they are. So, do not be offended by being asked for your ID and never start an argument.

Also, minimum age for entry is 18 years. However, for some clubs the minimum age is 21 years.

In some clubs you get a card at the entrance which is basically your check. Do not lose it otherwise you will be charged the maximum value. Sometimes there is a minimum consumption required. Besides, some clubs only accept cash as payment method. It also depends on the event if there will be an entrance fee. Entrance fees are mostly between 5 and 10€.

Normally prices for drinks are similar in each club. Though, sometimes they can vary a little and also depend on the event. You can say average prices for shots are around 2-3€, beer is around 3€ and long drinks are 4-7€.

Be informed, sometimes some clubs will be crowded very late or stay empty. Most of it depends on the event.

Last but not least, smoking in clubs is forbidden. Follow the club’s smoking policy and only smoke at designated places.
