There’s a funny thing about club Marula. It is named after an African fruit, which is known for its ability to make the whole jungle come into a drunken frenzy. During the summer months, when the fruit is spawned from the Marula trees, all kinds of animals come from all over just to get their teeth into this particular fruit, which afterwards is fermented within their stomachs and drives them to do the craziest dances. So, I guess this is the place for some jungle dancing and African beats.

The only bad thing is that they don’t have any Marula liquor to go with it. What it does have is some very groovy music: most nights you can get a mix of funk and soul, forcing you to move your feet constantly to the rhythm of the music. The night I was there it was completely packed, a bit unusual for a Wednesday, and people didn’t stop showing up and joining the dance floor, where you go body to body with people from all over the world, drenched in sweat and busting moves with smiles and smirks. The atmosphere is a cheerful one; I guess the music has a lot to do with it, and probably all the alcoholic beverages don’t hurt to achieve the mood. Beers are 5€ and cocktails start from 8€, which is not that expensive for a fun night out. There is usually a cover fee, but it comes with a beer or a cocktail.
