Editor's review

The Tunnel Club is to St. Petersburg what Hacienda is (or more precisely 'was') to Manchester. It was the first techno club to open in Russia back in 1993 and has enjoyed a tumultous history ever since, closing down in '97 and finally resurfacing in 2002. Legends about the excessive hedonism that has taken place in the erstwhile bomb shelter are two a penny (our favourite being the one about the drinks machine that vended ecstasy pills...), and much of that pioneering party spirit still survives! The music varies depending on the event, but expect the very best house, techno, breaks and drum'n'bass blasted out to a young and crazy crowd.

2009 went to my first techno event while on study abroad. Kicked off a four year techno lifestyle that took me around the world. I didn't realize those steps down into the ground were also leading me to a new life.

No, it's not closed! I went there a couple weeks ago (Nov 2010). Took a while for me and my friends to find it, but it's there. Really fun club, especially if you're into electronic music.

Admittedly haven't been here for a bit, but Tunnel was by far the best club in St. Petersburg during my time there. A proper dance club with all the great vibes you expect. Parties went on all night... check it!

The Tunnel Club is the original techno club in St. Petersburg and the best! Wild parties, great people. Come to Tunnel and I see you there!
