Teledisko, said to be the world’s smallest nightclub at just one square metre, has opened a new location in Madrid.

With five tiny nightclubs already set up in and around the city of Berlin, Teledisko’s brand new silver edition marks the first location to appear overseas.

The phonebox-shaped club has been the source of fascination for many in Berlin over the years, hosting intimate parties at a small fee. Punters are encouraged to contribute €2 to enter and “go crazy” with friends.

“The teledisko is the smallest disco in the world,” reads Teledisko’s website. “You can insert your favourite song by inserting a coin, then print out a photo directly and download a video via a link. What happens in the teledisko stays in the teledisko,” it adds. “Dance like there’s no tomorrow!”

Once inside, a selection of songs including ABBA’s ‘Dancing Queen’, Rihanna’s ‘Umbrella’, and Aqua’s ‘Barbie Girl’ can be chosen from, while effects such as strobe lighting, a spinning disco ball, and fog machines can be altered by punters.

First reported by Spanish outlet Informacion who visited the brand new location in Madrid’s Almargo district in the gardens of Goethe Institute, Teledisko Silver is currently free.

The club fits three people at a time and lasts for just three minutes once a song has been chosen and activated from the screen outside the club.

Five more Teledisko locations are dotted around Berlin, with the original Teledisko Pink residing inside Kater Blau on Holzmarktstrasse. Other editions can be found inside Sisyphos, outside the Mercedes-Benz Arena, on the RAW site in Revaler Strasse, and on the Holzmarkt.

As a mobile disco, Teledisko can also be hired and moved around the world, however, Madrid’s new location will be a permanent fixture in the city.

In 2021, Australian twins Harry Nathan and Boonie Labrakis set the Guinness World Record for creating the ‘smallest mobile nightclub’, named The Doof Shed.
