Abstract

A chapter in an edited collection on music venues, the discussion addresses the nightclub as a private venue that offers dancing to music. Historically also known as a ‘discotheque’, ‘dance hall,’ or ‘dancing’, the nightclub initially developed in an urban nocturnal setting, as a members’ club that can legally conduct its business of entertainment during opening times that may differ from public venues. As a contained cultural space, the nightclub is a venue in which music and alternative night-time identities play central roles, providing a sense of escape from the everyday.
