Fodor's Expert Review Mashina

Christchurch Dance Clubs

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

The Russian contemporary "machine" theme is carried through this nightclub in its artwork and vodka selection (from 19 different countries). Don't worry, there are plenty of boutique beers to choose from, too. Live bands generally kick off the evening followed by a DJ; there's no excuse not to hit the large dance floor, but there are comfy leather couches that beckon. It's worth keeping an eye on their Facebook page and website for theme nights and there's usually no cover charge. It's a venue with a strict "no casual streetwear" dress code and you must be at least 20 years old.

Don't try to get to this nightclub through the casino. Its entrance is on Peterborough Street at the back of the casino.

For some reason it doesn't have its own official address.
