“recently palais, or ponana as otherwise known, has upgraded the music from quite trashy cheese/pop to chart/r n'b.You're guarenteed a good time if you go with all your mates, and lots of drink inside you.don't go sober.there are a few scuffles every week, but the staff are friendly enough.seats are all around the large dancefloor, but are often full with horny couples.age group is about 18-25 with a good few middle aged foreigners who wont resist any opportunity to make a pass at the ladies.basically, its a laugh if you're drunk enough, or if you like the music.and make sure you get a free ticket from outside hopholes.”
