Toffler, a place once used as a underground passageway in the heart of Rotterdam, has turned into a party venue. Toffler is the place if you like techno, house and minimal music. The venue is actually a stretchy hallway with a few lights, smoke and a moving DJ booth. Depending on the amount of people, the booth can move back and forward to make sure the dance floor is always filled up with people dancing their ass off.
I started downloading music in the time of KaZaa Lite with a few kb/s connection. By then Dutch house/dance and other electronic music was dominating the music charts. Now let’s say 20 years later the Dutch are still known for having a great electronic scene. If you are planning to visit Rotterdam and ready to enjoy the full experience don’t miss out on a good night (and probably morning) in Toffler — a good way to get to know the Dutch house, techno and minimal scene. The place stays open till 06:00 in the morning and as you know “nothing good happens after 02:00”. Special events might take till somewhere halfway the next day.
Toffler hosts another DJ every weekend so do check out their website to see what’s coming up (If ROD is booked, go!). Listen to their SoundCloud as a warming up. Last tip: This is no club like the ones on the boulevard in Barcelona, (girls) leave your high heels at home and (guys) forget about your tie and shiny leather shoes.
