  1. Hi, I have a question about the ‘Nightoo’ club, is the barge located at the riverbank so that you can enter it and leave it throughout the night or is it in the middle of the river and you can’t leave until the night finishes?

      • Thanks so much!
        Would you know if it is happening in September? There is a gothic guide online which only mentions it until end of August and their website says the same

      • I have check and indeed they still haven’t announced the schedule of the upcoming Nightoo’s parties (except for August).
        I think it is just a matter of time before they do it. They should be busy with the summer parties that take place every Saturday of August.
