So I went to Summum. And I usually wish I hadn't. I went three times, and wished I hadn't got all my tickets first. If you're after a cool club, the air conditioning at this place is excellent, keeping it cool all night. The first night I went was classic 80's night "Gold". Which wasn't bad, as I liked most of the songs, with Spandau Ballet's Gold and numerous other retro tracks. But then they started repeating them, and it had only been about 45 minutes since they last played it. Things went downhill from there really. The price of drinks aren't too bad, a vodka and coke (I like vodak, I like coke, so I quite like the mixture) was 100 ptas more than Eden (Summum is 900 ptas), but they gave me the bottle to top it up, and you could only fit half the bottle of coke into the huge amount of vodka they'd put in the glass, so overall it was (relatively) quite good value. The sound system is quite impressive, loud enough for the small, low ceiling room of the main dance area. On the second night I went it was garage, which I must admit I'm not 100% keen on, but I lasted just over an hour before getting bored out of my mind. The clothes shake as the low bass notes rumble, and the die hard fanatics enjoy themselves immensely in the audio and visual experience (the light system is a simpe design, but quite effective for what it is). The third night was dance music, a bit better, but still not as great as the bigger clubs. The DJs are your typical ones, not as well known as Dave Pearce or Judge Jues, but still pretty good. Overall the place isn't bad, with an attractive layout on entry, but the main floor is basic. The prices are okay, but entry for 6000 is a bit steep for what it is. If you're not after the trance of Eden or the richness of Es Paradis then this place is okay, and garage fans will probably love this place, but most people should perhaps give this a miss. I wish
I hadn't gone 3 times (although the third time was only for around 15 minutes before I headed off for Es Paradis' free entry birthday night), but you should perhaps try it once (if you're feeling brave or don't dislike garage).
