Venice isn't known for its exuberant nightlife - most locals head to mainland Mestre for the handful of clubs and nightlife there. Casanova was once a central disco offering rock and house music until late, located at 158/a Cannaregio. Once referred to as the only place that could possible lay claim to disco credibility, it has recently become a branch of the Ae Oche restaurant chain offering a wide variety of pizzas. It's clear where Venetian allegiances lie - don't expect the year round 'city of revel'!

During the summer a visit to Jesolo and its beach north of the lagoon is the best bet if you're looking for some bigger nightclubs. More popular in the centre of Venice is the aperitivo or pre-club nightlife: wine, beer, cocktails, spirits and lots of chatting. Your best bet to enjoy Venetian nightlife is to go bar hopping around the centre.

Around Midnight, Fondamenta dei Pugni 3102, is a club in Santa Margherita, Dosoduro 3102. Every Saturday there's dance music with the resident DJ. During the week there is acid jazz music in the company of the Venice Jazz Project.

Club Malvasia Vecchia, Corte Malatina 2586, is a members-only club hidden away in a tiny courtyard behind the Fenice Opera House. It's very simple to become a member, you just have to pay a one off 15 Euro charge and you can you can enjoy reasonably priced drinks and dance the night away until 4am in the morning. The owner is also the resident DJ playing loud dance music all night.

TAG Club is a cosy yet lively club just behind the train station in Mestre. It hosts an eclectic range of live music events, exhibitions and pop/rock nights. Afterhours parties are regular. Via Giustizia 19.

If you can't live without pumping house and underground music, all-night dancing and masses of people, make the effort to visit to Il Muretto on Via Roma 120 in Lido di Jesolo. It is considered a temple of house music and has attracted people from all over the North East of Italy for the past 15 years.

Did you Know?!?

Lord Byron, revered poet and satirist, lived in the city in the early 19th century and once referred to Venice as ‘ the revel of the earth’, such was its reputation as the party city of Europe at the time?
