Cinderella Disco Club   

Psychedelic, glamorous, wonderful; be there when the clock strikes 12.


Located in Kolonaki, one of the Greek capital’s most chic districts offering a variety of worthy clubs, the newly arrived Cinderella discotheque has emerged to fill a definite void felt by clubbers feeling nostalgic about the late-70s disco era.

Set up in a long, narrow, and exotic-looking basement adorned with palm trees and large mirror balls hanging from the ceiling as well as an elevated, illuminated dance floor, the club draws ages ranging from about 25 to 50, revelers who are either discovering the disco era they never experienced or temporarily revisiting their youth.

The overall setting is reminiscent of clubbing in the pre-WiFi era. The lively activity that engulfs clubbers at Cinderella overshadows any digital distractions. All such concerns are swept aside once clubbers find themselves under the psychedelic, beat-synchronized disco lights and amid the uplifting American disco sounds from the 70s. All one can really do here is surrender to dance. Everybody does. This is the kind of place where even more reserved types feel awkward about not moving to the music.

Cinderella usually draws considerable crowds, making attendees feel like they have entered the place to be, without, however, cramming in masses and depriving clubbers of space to dance. Making reservations is advised, otherwise clubbers may need to spend some time in the queue at the entrance. If so, sporting appropriate disco-chic attire, as recommended by the club’s directors, will certainly get you through the queue far quicker. The nights here typically end with two or three slow and intimate ballads to draw dancers closer together before leaving the premises.
