Techno music is a genre that diverges from the mainstream and delves into a much deeper part of the soul. The night clubs that play Techno have adopted that same approach when creating an ambiance. Techno clubs are for those who like to experience life in a much more lowkey environment. The clubs are mostly underground or in warehouses so you can focus more on the music and less on the interior. That is not to say, they do not have the best sound systems in the world and lighting that complements the music.
