Ilves use to be "The" Hotel and Nightclub in Tampere for decades, but it seems that times are changing. We were here on a (July) Friday night from 11.30pm to 1am and there were only few people there. Place is really large, with DJ, several bar counters, bouncers, big dance floor, Black Jack table etc. So with 10 or so people it was real dead(check my pic). Last time I was there, place was packed because it was Saturday evening after big Fair/Expo, so maybe it's better to focus on Saturdays?
