It is precisely here that developed the genre house-techno of Frankfurt and the club is still loved and known by all fans and the world's best DJs. This club is focused on music quality rather than to the aesthetics of the room. The Interior is in fact small and minimalistic,with a capacity of about 300 people. Even the lighting is kept to a minimum, and to illuminate the Interior there’s only coloured neon on the ceiling, While the dance floor is set in a large bare room with a bar and a DJ. Above the DJ lies a row of old TVs that broadcast some surreal video. Definitely a must for all fans of techno music.
