Right next door to Chukotka and by the northern entrance of Panfilov Park, Da Freak is in the most happening part of town – on Friday and Saturday nights, at least. Enter into the two-tiered space and be prepared to party like a rockstar. While many playlists in Almaty focus on chart and 90s hits – yawn – Da Freak is more into techno, drum ‘n’ base and electro beats. There are two different dance floors, each with their own bar, meaning you can move swiftly from one to the other as your mood progresses with each drink. There’s also a huge balcony that overlooks the park, providing the perfect breather when you work up a sweat. There’s adominant student crowd here, many pouring in from KIMEP after a hard week of lectures, so come for university-style boozing and late-night foot stomping.
