Grungy Factor: Situated on the canal amidst graffiti-ridden concrete walls, you’ll find the legend that is the Flex. With all the bright colours and flashy lights on its exterior, it might look like something you’d find at the Prater, but inside, it’s a whole different story. This is a unused U-Bahn tunnel turned into a club – now that’s what we call grungy! Black walls, a bunker-like atmosphere and an overall pretty run-down vibe are all part of the charm of this institution of the underground scene.
It’s often rumoured to be a drug hotspot, which we (for legal reasons) can’t confirm, but what we can confirm is that it’s actually more than just another dirty club that makes you wanna sanitise your whole body when returning home. It’s especially famous for its wild techno and drum and bass nights, and it also regularly features different live music acts.
The Flex cafe upstairs is also a gloriously dive-y bar to hang out in any given night of the week.
Good for… a wild, trippy night out. Immerse yourself in the whole underground flair and see where you end up. Just stay safe and don’t do anything we wouldn’t do. Or do it anyway, it’s not like we can stop you.
