Giant Mirror Ball

The main floor, with a giant mirror ball, is on the second floor of the premises, while a small bar is located at the rear of the dance floor. The main DJ booth overlooks the main floor and for select artists, the DJ booth is relocated onto the actual dance floor. In addition to the DJ booth, another bar, with open windows that look down onto the dance floor, also exists.[citation needed]

On the fourth floor is another bar, a chill-out lounge and a DJ usually plays here as well. The fourth floor features glass walls, which do not open for safety reasons, that look down onto the dance floor two floors below.[citation needed]
