Upon ringing because I lost my phone, a woman was unforgivably rude. She started by criticising the number that I called despite it being the first number I found when searching for ‘Klute number’. Then when I asked ‘who is this’ just to check I...More

Not great vibes if I’m brutally honest. Would much rather visit jimmy’s or frankly stay home and get an early night. Plus there’s that video of the bouncers. Not great lads

Big fan of Klute Durham and go there every Friday usually without fail. As other reviews have mentioned once or twice, it's not the Ritz... but it always makes for a great night out! Fridays are usually packed for obvious reasons - it's the worst...More

If you've never been, you have to experience Klute! To be honest, it was better a few years ago when they played cheesy music most of the time whereas they've gone a bit too popular with the music. They've also been told they can't sell...More

"I flippin' love klute!" (Insert irish accent here) Liz ready particularly enjoys the comfort of the surroundings and the overall pleasantries and ambience. The feng shui is just simply delightful!

No. Dont go here. No respect for human rights, people throwing up everywhere and the staff dont care. I would avoid at all costs! Save yourself and dont go to Europe's worst.

On the face of it, Klute should not be a popular nightclub, but it is. For some inexplicable reason packing yourself into that shoddy nightclub with your mates is a night rarely without it's stories. You really have to adopt a "I'm going to enjoy...More
