Lausanne Nightlife: Clubbing

Lausanne Nightlife: Clubbing

Do you like partying? If the answer is yes, Lausanne is the place to be! Here you will meet many cool people not only from Lausanne but from everywhere in Switzerland and the world.

Our advise: go out and meet the clubbers in the four different clubs suggested below!


1. MAD

This club has the best reputation in Switzerland. Attractively designed, it invites more than 1100 clubbers at a time to enjoy the music played by the often famous DJs who make the dancefloor shake.

It is not only one of the oldest (25 years) but also one of the biggest  clubs in Switzerland (five levels and one restaurant).

Electronica DJs usually play on the underground floor which is smaller (space for 150 people) whereas famous DJs (like Eric Morillo, Tiesto, Bob Sinclar, Axwell, Martin Solveig, Joachim Garraud Carl Cox, Mr Mike, David Guetta, Sven Väth, Armand Van Helden etc.) play on the main floor with a balcony. At the top level the stylish Zapoff Gallery is reserved for people older than 26 years old.


Opening Hours: Thurs-Sun: 23:00 – 05:00


2. D! Club

The D! Club used to be a theatre before becoming one of the No. 1 clubs in Lausanne.

Well-known DJs make the party people dance the huuuge floor the whole night long to house, minimal and electro music. It also welcomes some rock and hip hop concerts as well as student parties.


Opening Hours: Thurs-Sun: 23:00 – 05:00



The Amnesia club has been completely redecorated in 2000 and it is now the biggest multi-dancefloor club of the Lake Leman. The proximity of the lake makes this place magic and the name has been chosen in reference to the famous clubs in Miami and Ibiza.

House, RNB, Electro, Reggaeton and Disco Pop music is played on the different dancefloors. One floor is reserved for clubbers older than 25 years old. The Amnesia Club has also a wide smoking place with an outstanding view over the lake.


Opening Hours: Thurs-Sun: 23:00 – 05:00



In the heart of Lausanne, the Loft Electroclub is unquestionably a very fancy and original club whose prestige attracts the crowd over and over again. High-class national and international DJs play here every weekend.

Friday nights are usually R’n’B, Hip Hop and Reggaeton – themed while electronic music is played Saturday night. There are special evenings organized every Wednesday, e.g. featuring House music.

The club is beautifully decorated and clubbers go there not only for the high quality of the music but also for the warm atmosphere.
