Like a phoenix from the ashes, Kong club emerged from the closing down of the much loved Cafe King. Luckily, the mourners didn’t have to wait for long and Kong in a new location is the twin of its predecessor—not identical, but still very, very alike. Still playing the crème de la crème of house music and techno, Club Autonomica calls it home and the esteemed likes of Jimmy Edgar have played there. The long, wood-panelled bar harks back to earlier times and the old, lattice ceiling casts down broken beams of colorful light onto the dancefloor. Enough reminiscing though. Change had to happen somewhere, it is an entirely different building after all, and the winding corners of Cafe King have now been replaced by one large square room with minimal seating around the edge. The DJ booth is plonk in the middle of the dancefloor so you can quite literally, surround the music, and the walls and windows are smothered in darkness. It’s more like Cafe King’s evil twin, but aren’t the evil ones always more fun?
