Frankfurt’s club scene has partly moved back downtown after a period of most locations being situated in the city’s east end. One location with an authentic club character -not too big, and equipped with a long bar- is the Golden Eye (formerly named Kane & Abel)
Be aware that its address is on the renowned luxurious shopping street “Goethestraße”, but the entrance is on the tiny side street “Luginsland”.
The club opens on Fridays and Saturdays, and before holidays. Both their homepage and Facebook page promote all dates and events.
Golden Eye hosts several popular club nights such as the “Black Roséy” parties, but also has its own line-up. Its music genre is mainly hip-hop/R’n’B, whereas some nights include both house and hip-hop DJs.
The crowd consists of interesting people: girls in sexy dresses meet guys in suits, but also some dressed in black denim, wearing sneakers and covered in tattoos. As long as you don’t show up too casual, you shouldn’t have trouble getting in.
The club only becomes crowded after 01:00, so don’t worry if you’re arriving earlier.
Once you’ve stepped down the stairs into the club itself, you’ll find yourself on the dance floor. The ceiling is quite low, which adds to the club’s atmosphere. The bar stretches along the whole length of the club, and in the back you’ll find several lounge corners (often pre-booked by groups). I’ve spent several nights there until dawn, so you’d better have a good dinner in advance.
