A lot of people in India are taken aback if someone says that Chennai has a very hip and happening nightlife. Here’s a list of the best nightclubs in Chennai that will make you reevaluate your image of Chennai as a very sedate city that goes to bed by ten. At the nightclubs listed here, the nightlife in Chennai doesn’t stop till the wee hours of the morning.

Leather Bar

Located in The Park, Chennai, the Leather Bar is fashioned in a manner to pay tribute to the city in itself, as the “city of leather”. The mentioned idea can be seen in the interiors--rich black leather floor, seating, suede walls, et al. It is a great place to listen to exclusive DJ mixes. Also the terrace is a brilliant place to enjoy the sultry night air of the city with a couple of drinks.

Chennai’s offering to those who like to party in exclusivity, Pasha in The Park, Chennai, is a great place to head to with a close-knit group of friends. Essentially designed as a lounge, the place makes enough room for people who want to break into a dance as the night descends. Recliner divans, long, richly-coloured curtains simply add to the ambience following a Persian theme.

Done up in a minimalist fashion, Pulse also follows the theme of understated appeal of Zen Garden Hotel, which is a business hotel. The place is well stocked with a range of scotches, whiskeys, cognac, wines and champagne; typical choices of a business soiree. The place is a little compact, which shouldn’t however stop you from jiving to the music, while you unwind with a couple of drinks.

These are some of the best nightclubs in Chennai. Even so, they are great nightlife options that have something to offer to suit everyone’s budget. So as they say, ‘dance the night away,’ or ‘just chill.’ Cheers!
