Attraction details
Owner description: VISA and MASTERCARD accepted (£10 Minimum Spend) We are the longest standing nightclub in Durham, our carpets may not be clean, our toilets are NOT the "Ritz", but we are the most fun you can have in durham with your clothes on. . Expect a young and fun student crowd, 6 nights a week, with no heirs or graces, and the only thing stickier than our carpets is the memories that stick with our customers for over 12 generations of students, for over 40 Years. . Our DJs play "The Baywatch Theme", "S-Club 7", "Bewitched" and ALWAYS "Thats Amore" by Dean Martin as our last song of the night, and we are proud of it. . The Worst Nightclub in Europe? Maybe... but this is stuff dreams are made of! Dress down or dress up... everyone is equal here, have a drink of beer thats never too dear, dance like no ones watching, laugh, cry and die inside a little to our cheesy-as-hell playlist. . And that weird physics post grad in the corner SWEARS he's Donald Sutherland.

Whereas certain people find becoming exceedingly inebriated on paint-stripper and listening to "cheese" enjoyable, for those with some shred of refinement, this is not an ideal place. The dance floor caters for a minimal group of people, and an illogically-placed step cuts the venue awkwardly in half, confining people to the dance floor. The décor and maintenance is shoddy and unsightly. It is nigh on impossible to be served, and even then one is faced with usually priced drinks or something resembling ethanol mixed with cordial for a very low price.

since being voted the Worst Nightclub in Europe, Klute has gone from strength to strength! With the smoking ban Klute has extended into a lovely back garden smoking area making the crushed, crowded dancefloors with sweat dripping from the ceiling and walls much less of a problem. Although the smell of fags no longer covers that of sweat and beer, the new lick of paint and all-new dj box enables this student-hovel to call itself a club once more. The downstairs bar offers a sophisticated element with leather sofa's and lovely wooden floors, though it inevitably features the inebriated Durham University student body vomiting up their double vodkas and silver spoons. All things aside, Klute is not one to be missed!
