The Sydskånska Nation is yet another of the student 'nations,' the organizations that were once begun as touchstones for regional pride but have become venues for gatherings and entertainment. With a full bar and limited food-service as well as a stage and sound system, this place makes for an indispensable player in Lund's nightlife scene.
This club is one of the off-the-beaten track venues that makes Lund's party scene so unique and happening. The space is small and the atmosphere can get cramped, but the bands and the tunes are always hot and the freshest around.
This is one of the most prominent "nations" in Lund. These are unique student-based organizations-cum-pubs that began as cultural pride associations for students away from home but grew into a way to bring student communities together, provide a space to have fun, and maybe even make some money. The nations are the prime venues for alternative entertainment and homey atmospheres for drink and dance.
Slagthuset is a venerable veteran of the Malmö club scene. It's less refined and stylish than many other options, but its authenticity is through the roof. Its clientele ranges from the teenage set to the middle-aged one (depending on the bands, of course) and the kitchen serves up no nonsense bar food. This is truly a must see for anyone interested in what the locals do of an evening.
Mattssons is an honored institution in Malmö. It gathers musicians of all genres together to play, and has provided some opportunities to many of southern Sweden's most famous musical exports. It's a nice mix of cozy neighborhood place and slick club.
Etage is one of the most refined and classy dining experiences in the city. At night, it transforms into a dance palace, and in both its guises it attracts the best and brightest of Malmö's elites.
This cool little nightspot is among the hippest in southern Sweden. Nightly DJs offer up a variety of musical styles, and theme nights or special drink menus are common as well. There is usually a cover on weekend evenings, but on other nights it's often free.
Harry's is known as one of the best but least known little places to catch some live tunes. Sweden is known for producing very talented musicians, and talented musicians often gravitate towards the challenge and freedom of jazz, and that's often what's on tap here. Furthermore the kitchen serves up local beers, strong drinks and hearty appetizers and bar food.
This club focuses on what any night spot needs for success: good music, ample dance space and freely flowing drinks. It's a no-frills club experience, but the DJ's are skilled, the drinks are strong and reasonably priced and the clientele is there for a good time.
This club is one of the favorite spots for metal and hard rock in Malmö. Southern Sweden is known for its rock scene, and has produced a number of well-known bands, so patrons here might just see some stars of tomorrow. There are also often contests or festivals held here.
This nightclub located just off of Amiralsgatan is one of the hippest after-hours spots in Malmö. Frequented by fairly mixed clientele, it caters to students come in for the evening from Lund, young professionals who live in the area and always features a mix of beautiful people representing all of Malmö's ethnic diversity. The music is mostly techno-poppy but there are special theme nights as well.
This vaguely religious-themed nightclub is located south of the city center. It took over the space of another club and has since skyrocketed to prominence as one of Malmö's favorite nightspots.
