Re: Lugano night life !!!

Hey, yeah everything closes at around 6, anyway, if you wanna do some night shopping, you should try the Piccadily in Viganello(gas station mini-market), right next to Coop in Viganello.

Then you have the Piccadily in Molino Nuovo, at the gas station, nearby the cementery.

Then there's the Aperto(changed names a couple years ago, I dont know the new name), but it's the mini market at the train station.

All of these close at 10 o'clock and all of these are more expensive then regular markets and some charge more for alcohol after 6 o'clock...

You're better off doing your grocery shopping before 6 and if you didn't know already, on thursdays, shops close a bit later, 7-9, depending which one and where.

Re: Lugano night life !!!

Hope this is not too late ... couplewoudl anyway be useful for folks in future of my fav place you could check out:

OOPS bar near the uni - a typical place for hippies like me - free spirited place withh loads of younger folks. alternative / rock music

Living room: Via trevano - again pretty chilled out place - alternative/ electro/ trance usually .. and some rock nights .. have decent DJ's coming over every now and then and an occasional rock band

Tittos - city centry - best place to shake a leg after a couple of drinks

New orleans and another place I don;t remember the name (right diagnoally opposige to the bus station ) - cool places to hang out till 1ish

Milk bar in via balestra - dead on weekdays .. great for a pre party starter at night - has aperitivos on thursdays

Privileged (basement of manor) .. great music .. bit place ..not the best place to go alone though.

Happy clubbin + pubbin

Cheers

Re: Lugano night life !!!

Not quite clubbing but Manor in Lugano opens on a Sunday and there is a Manor food section on the ground floor too.
Quite a novelty being used to ZH!

Re: Lugano night life !!!

Milano doesn't disappoint, it's not even that expensive if you take the S-trains

good recent overview of the scene here

Re: Lugano night life !!!

In summer you can always go to locarno, the best city of Ticino
If you go for example on August, then you can also follow the locarno film festival (pardo.ch)

In winter it's not that great, but there are some places like vanilla or small bars around the center of the city.

Re: Lugano night life !!!

Re: Lugano night life !!!

Metrò Club is probably worth checking out

the march line up is not out yet
http://www.lugano.ch/giovani/welcome.cfm?catID=09003004
http://www.ch-ti.ch/index.php/progra...1-il-programma

lots of teens-early20s but also others and enough open friendly people, at least when i went.

Re: Lugano night life !!!

yeah agreed .. people started really partying only after 3ish. You need to go along with a crazy bunch of folks to NYX to get the party started early.. people there are a bit to posh for my taste ... but good music .. least the night I was there . Livingroom's reallly causal - and people do speak in English.

Have to try metro .. though !
