Clubs for Neko (Music & Dance)
Second Life Clubs with Neko Nights for Music and Dance
If there’s one thing that changes most often in SL, it’s a club, and even more so, which nights these clubs host Neko Nights. If you visit one of the following clubs on a Neko night and find nothing but the sound of crickets, please send me an email or an in-world IM to let me know, so I can update the blog (and contact the club owner). Special thanks to Eden for updating all of this info at the end of July!
Psychotic Neko Club
Owner: Obyri Nightfire
Psychotic Neko’s “club” is located in the center plaza. When you arrive, look for the raised platform with white columns, and a red ball hanging overhead. This club is kid friendly, furry friendly and pretty much everything and everyone friendly, with a couple of regular events and contests each week.
Owner: Dliela Munro
Neko Times: Daily Neko events (find them by searching SL Events for “Deranged”) with prizes often sponsored by Neko stores
Deranged is located on a rez and ride sim for all you Neko bikers, surrounded by beaches and parks packed with cuddle balls, a neko tree house, and many places to roll around and have fun. The club is open from 6:00 am to Midnight SL time every day (3:00 pm to 9:00 am Euro time).
The Cheezburger Kitty Club
Owner: Roxxy Rhode of Fluffy Bushy
As shown in the above photo, this bright purple and neon blue club provides a nice relaxed place to dance, play a couple games, or hang out, sponsored by one of my favorite Neko stores, Fluffy Bushy. There are no specific Neko events, but the music stream is great and it’s never too crowded.
Neon Neko Nook
Location: moving to a new location… stay tuned!
Owner: Sarrah Docherty
Neko Times: No specific theme nights, but a lotta Nekos hang out here
This casual, brightly-colored cafe is a perfect place for Nekos to come hang out and pass the time together. While listening to a blend of anime and techno on the music stream, you can peruse a bookcase full of “Books on Notecard,” a magazine stand that offers new Magazine HUDs every month, the Featured Artist of the Month’s artwork posted on the walls, and enjoy spontaneous events such as Movie Nights, Poetry Nights, and even burlesque dancers. There’s always something fun going on!
The Coach and Horses Pub
Managers: Susie Bagley and Indi Kenin
Neko Time: Thursdays from 1:30 – 3:30 pm SLT (22:30 – 00:30 am Euro time)
Owned by two most delightful Neko gals, this British pub is situated in one of the five cool London sims. When they aren’t hosting a live DJ, (interested? they’re currently looking for more, particularly a Neko DJ for their Friday event) they stream Capital FM, a London radio station. The pub is characterized by people who love to talk, laugh, play, tease, dance the night away, and have a good laugh along the way.
Owner: Aaron Connell and Osiloa Jorgensen
Neko Time: Saturday from 1:00 am to 4:00 am SLT (10:00 – 12:00 in the morning Euro time)
Club Industry is open 24 hours a day and seems to be quite popular with Nekos. It features live DJs seven days a week playing electronic / industrial / synthpop / trance music, as well as Neko Nights with $1000L gift cards for the best male and best female Neko.
Club Nocturnal Cravings
Owners: Miranda Islay and Brock Viper
Neko Time: varies
Six nights a week (every night except Sunday) there’s a party at this space-themed hotspot from 7-9pm SLT (4-6am Euro time). They also host one Neko Night a week, but the time varies so it’s hard to know when to go without joining their group. Don’t let that dissuade you though, many of the staff are neko so there’s always a warm welcome for us ear and tail wearing folk. Thanks to Joanna for tipping me off to this club!
Club Sidhe na Daire
Owner: Angelus Capra
– Tuesdays at 11:00 am SLT (20:00 Euro time)
– Thursdays at 11:00 am SLT (20:00 Euro time)
Inside a grey stone castle you’ll find a purple and hot pink dance club (with an outdoor garden for more private dancing), packed with danceballs and featuring music ranging from gothic, darkwave electronica and EBM, to heavy metal. Thanks to Angelus for hosting a Neko event at a time that’s convenient for the European contingency… the kittehs from the VirtualNeko SL Group give it two paws up!
= DERAILED =
Owner: Aardvark Zephaniah
Neko Night: Mondays at 9pm SLT (06:00 in the morning Euro time)
Upon arrival, walk downstairs into this abandoned New York subway station, where music ranges from industrial to psytrance and more. At least half the crowd tends to be Nekos, and not just on “Neko Madness Monday Nights” either (which typically include store giveaways and a best Neko contest).
Zen Lounge at Zen Creations
Location: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Island%20of%20Zen/35/240/44 (Note: You can’t TP directly to the club. When you land at the arrival hub, turn away from the shop and head to the far left hand / NW corner of the island.)
Owner: Zhoie Zimermann
Neko Time: Saturday nights
GREAT music, plenty of dance balls, friendly chatter and a room full of energetic neko is what my favorite Neko Kulta found when she visited this new lounge, located on the same sim as the neko store Zen Creations. Even when there’s no Neko event, their comfy lounge is open to all neko for hanging out with friends next to a cozy fireplace. Thank you Kulta for sharing this great find!
BIOS MetaClub at Dirty Lynx
Owner: Loki Dancer
Dirty Lynx has a great-looking club located alongside their store in Bytegang, where you will often find Neko afoot (apaw?).
Location: unable to locate… awaiting word from the owner…
Owner: Marie Ruggles (owner of one of my favorite Neko stores…)
This Nekofied club was large and had everything… from poseballs, poles for dancing, and trampolines for bouncing, to lots of couches for snuggling, and a “Devil May Care” game. The music stream playing when I visited was pretty darn wonderful too… but then it disappeared. Hope we can find it again!
The Cat’s Meow
Owner: Ameretat Skytower
Neko Time: (Club not open yet)
Ameretat is hoping to open up a nice, laid-back neko-themed club. If you’re interested in working as a dancer, host/hostess, or DJ, send him a notecard in-world!

Pussycat had a cozy, hippie style hangout where Neko, Hybrid, and Na’Vi could chat and dance… but it seems to be on hold for now?
