Most Unusual Clubs: Watt, Netherlands
Watt Club in Rotterdam, Netherlands, is a sustainable club with lower energy, water consumption and gas emissions than most. The club architects pride themselves on a reduction of 30% in energy consumption, 50% less water use, 50% less refuse generated and 30% less CO2 emissions compared to most clubs. Watt achieves this with its sustainable dance floor, which is made from a series of light-laden panels that respond to and generate electricity from the movement of patrons, rainwater-fed toilets, low-waste bars and harvested heat from sound equipment.
