ACCORDING to Wikipedia, euphoria is “an affective state, in which a person experiences pleasure or excitement and intense feelings of well-being and happiness”.
This is exactly what I was feeling, when I entered Windhoek’s latest trending nightspot, Club Euphoria, for the first time last Friday.
I was greeted at the Ausspanplatz-situated club serious bouncers, so Club Euphoria is certainly not a place where one can stir up trouble. The overall feel of the club was amazing; the gold and black lounge set-up is perfect for one to enjoy your drinks, while sitting comfortably. The bar is the first thing that catches one’s eye, as you enter. I must admit that, at first, the small bar counter didn’t impress me, but the bartenders were not only a sight for sore eyes, but they delivered impeccable service, and even thou the nightclub was packed, I always got my drink in less than a minute. The DJ was none other than Whatagwan presenter, Paul Da Prince.
He played an array of music genres, ranging from popular club music, such as afro house, electro house, and new school hip-hop, as well as older R&B club hits and some old school hip-hop jams.
The music definitely played the biggest role in entertaining club-goers until the early morning hours. This club literally caters for everyone who is of age, from students, to working class citizens and also big-time ballers. And speaking of big-time ballers, if you are one, and have a thing for being in the VIP area, then this is definitely a place to blow some serious cash.
There are two VIP lounges to choose from – the open VIP lounge and the more exclusive and cosy closed VVIP section, which can accommodate more than a dozen people, and still has enough space where you can dance the night away.
But if you’re just keen on chilling and having a good time, and you don’t have a ballers budget then, don’t despair, the club’s lounge set-up makes everyone feel like a VIP.
Club Euphoria even offers membership cards for regulars, with the cheapest being the silver option, which costs N$200 per annum, and this allows you free entrance for you and a friend.
A gold membership card, which will cost you N$400 per year, allows you entrance for free, with two other friends.
Platinum membership is N$800 and allows you free entrance for you and three friends for the whole year.
The last membership card is a diamond card, which is by invite only, and caters for the regular big money spenders. There are interestingly only 10 diamond cards currently in circulation.
The club has special events, including Ladies Night every Wednesdays and Happy Hour on Thursdays. Club Euphoria definitely is not your regular Namibian nightclub. On occasion, a cleaning lady shows up to keep the dance floor spotless, especially after people spill their drinks while dancing.
I’m not a regular nightclub enthusiast, but the overall vibe of Club Euphoria is amazing.
The drinks are sold at reasonable prices, the restrooms are superclean and the service is awesome. If you find yourself in Rehobother Street, opposite Indongo Toyota in Ausspanplatz, between Tuesday and Sunday, then the Euphoria experience is highly recommended.
