Looking for the best nightclubs in Düsseldorf? With its vibrant nightlife scene, Düsseldorf is a city that never sleeps.

This article will guide you through some of the top nightclubs where you can experience everything from thumping techno beats to chilled-out lounges.

15 Top Nightclubs in Düsseldorf

Salon des Amateurs

Salon des Amateurs is a legendary club in Europe, setting the tone for Düsseldorf's alternative nightlife scene.

This unique club takes on a double life - it acts as a casual café during the day and then transforms into an electro-lounge once the sun sets on Friday and Saturday nights.

First of all, the music transcends genre – seamlessly moving between dancefloor and the avant-garde. This forward-thinking approach has shaped Düsseldorf's music scene since the 1960s!

Homegrown artists like Lena Willikens, Jan Schulte, and Vladimir Ivkovic have continued to contribute to the club's growing reputation.

Nachtresidenz

Nachtresidenz, or "Resi", is one of the biggest nightclubs in Düsseldorf. A short walk from Königsallee, it's quickly recognizable for long, snaking queues of clubbers waiting to get in.

With capacity for up to 1,800 people, space is never an issue here. [1] But it's the main room that draws the eyes – sprawled under a dome over 13 meters (42 feet) high, with a glamorous interior.

Depending on what you like, there's a party for you. The club's music is a mix of tracks from house, disco, Latin, soul and occasionally K-pop to bop your head to.

International DJs frequently feature on their timetable, pulling in both locals and tourists alike.

Lucy's Sky

Lucy's Sky, tucked away on Flinger Straße, is a hidden underground club for electronic music.

You can't just stroll in; similar to a speakeasy, you must ring a doorbell discreetly positioned between two shopfronts for entry.

Once past the secret entrance, you'll have to descend a stairway and slip through velvet curtains.

Graffiti-covered walls signal this isn't the typical Düsseldorf scene – and that's the beauty of it.

The sound here is slow, no crazy fast techno, usually some form of house or techno to groove to. DJs include local legends, international talents, and even some from the techno haven of Berlin.

Club Bohème

Club Bohème is part of the Schlösser Quartier Bohème, parked on Ratinger Straße, a popular party street in Düsseldorf's old town. 

This brewpub and clubhouse features LED bar counters and world-class DJs like Christian Erdmann and Andre Wallukat spinning a mix of Groove, Jazz, Soul, Retro, and Funk hits.

I got to the pub in time for the club to open, and started the evening with a Saurbraten (traditional German meat roast) paired with glasses of Schlösser Altbier, their in-house beer. It was delicious, and surprisingly affordable!

Cube

"There's still hope for Düsseldorf's party scene thanks to Cube!" – according to some locals, Cube is considered the best and the last standing techno club in the city.

Gallery boutique by day, and wild basement club by night, this small but promising space serves up good techno music and good vibes, accompanied by affordable drinks. What's not to like?

Choose between two floors – one for chilling at the bar and the other for hitting the dance floor.

Schickimicki Club

Schickimicki Club, considered the "living room" of the Altstadt (Old Town), is an unpretentious club that doesn't seem to fit Düsseldorf's chic image.

From the lack of "face checks" at the door to soundtracks that cater to everyone (from Britney to Dr Dre) – you'll find a friendly mix of people ready to let loose and hit the dance floor at Schickimicki.

The atmosphere has been described as "rotzig, liebevoll, herzlich, versoffen, wild, sexy, exzessiv" (rough, loving, warm, drunk, wild, sexy, excessive), so take from that what you will 😉

One tip? Arrive around midnight to secure your spot, as the place fills up fast after 1 am!

Stahlwerk

Housed in a former Mannesmann residence, Stahlwerk has been shaping the party scene since 1993.

The industrial vibes, a nod to its history as an old steel plant, make
