Mega club on the mainland
Word to the wise: It's best to book your transport to Marghera in advance to avoid being ripped off.
Hardcore party people should head to this vast club on the Venice mainland, which, thanks to being exempt from the city's strict noise laws, can really blast out the tunes. Situated in an old Art Deco theatre, there are four different pavilions and some of its bars and restaurants are al fresco, too - ideal for summer clubbing.
It's free before 10.30pm, but the whole point of coming here is to see and be seen, and that doesn't happen until later. Stepping off the traghetto, there's usually a paparazzo or two waiting to snap anyone remotely famous. So dust down the Versace, book your VIP boat across the water and enjoy an evening mixing with the beautiful people.
