Located in inner-city Melbourne, Trapdoor Fridays is a major hotspot for uni kids as the weekend begins. Just as the name suggests, once in the door you head on down to the bottom level, where windows are about as common as unicorns, and lose yourself in the cloud of smoke.
For the entry price of $10 you get a run on the hectic dance floor which you can tear up to your heart's content without any fear of judgement. And if you feel everyone else would benefit from seeing your wild moves (that or you've just had too many Backhanded Panthas) you can jump on stage and show them what you've got.
To add to the mysterious atmosphere, the smoke machine gets a solid run for its money plus you can eat your weight in complimentary Ghost Drops (if you don't mind eating them off the floor). People stumbling around with straws in buckets are a common occurrence, these being the house drink, and if you can't take another minute headbanging to dubstep in your six inch heels you can flop down in one of the many booths bordering the room.
Trapdoor Fridays are an all-round great night; the line is never too lengthy, the drinks aren't too expensive and if you don't mind a bit of smoke inhalation, it's a fantastic end to the week.
