Celia Academy is the latest iteration of the Celia nightclub brand, a popular underground club that hosts in a flurry of DJs spinning electronic music. Techno music is the order of the night and the passion of the crowd, with various in-house platforms dishing up deep, tech-house, and melodic offshoots to a mixed audience that doesn’t stop dancing when the sun comes up. Look for resident DJ Lina K’s events — a popular one is the all-female DJ monthly techno night. They also do a more chill but still dance-y cocktails night on Thursdays. Tables available to book — a good idea on busier nights when they will reach capacity.
