Although Yab is closed most nights during the summer, it nonetheless enjoys a reputation as one of the city’s premier dance clubs.
Located just a couple of blocks from Piazza della Repubblica, this ultra-chic club, lounge, and restaurant attracts a large crowd of stylish, upscale patrons, especially on Mondays and the weekends.
The fashionable and attractive clientele looks just as sleek and glamorous as the club itself, whose elegant décor features chandeliers, crisp white sofas, and a dance floor polished to a high shine.
Plenty of lounging space on the periphery gives patrons a chance to rest their feet or enjoy a round of cocktails, though the venue is probably not be the best option for meaningful conversation – this is a dance club, after all, and the DJs never fail in turning up the volume and keeping the posh and energetic crowd on its feet.
The drinks may be pricey and the door policy tough, but Yab is worth the effort and expense for anyone in the mood for a swanky, upbeat night on the town.
Variable but always stylish, 20s and 30s.
Club pop music spun by various DJs. Popular theme nights include smooth hip-hop on Mondays and University Night on Wednesdays, as well as high-energy mixes on Fridays and Saturdays.
The restaurant serves a full dinner menu 9–11pm and a buffet on Wednesday nights.
Cover charge €20. Prix fixe dinner €25 for women and €30 for men, buffet €11. Beer, wine, and cocktails €9+.
Smart casual to dressy.
Mondays (year round) and Wednesdays (August to April) for the respective hip-hop and university parties.
