All participants are invited to the MNE party which will take place at the Praterdome, Riesenradplatz 7, 1020 Vienna, from 10:00 pm on.
Two levels with four dance floors and twelve theme bars in total offer something for everyone. The music also caters to every preference: from house, technotrance, R’n’B and soul to songs of the 70’s, 90’s as well as salsa and latino. A special highlight at Praterdome is the sensational midnight opening: Accompanied by a spectacular laser show, the moveable walls turn the two main dance floors into a huge dancing palace.
Show your name badge and you will receive free entrance and a glass of prosecco until midnight.
The city center is a small universe in itself: discover historical palaces face to face with modern facades, elegant boutiques next to popular fashion stores, and antique shops lining up across from stylish designer hotspots.
