A classic rave/club-whore term that refers to a brief (30-90 minute) nap which a person takes in between two large events (e.g., raves and circuit parties). Because both events may span hours into the double-digits, there is little time to sleep. A disco nap helps to afford one the energy to make it through the second event.
I had to catch a disco nap before going to the next party.

a nap taken afternoon/evening when have either not had enough sleep the night before or expecting a v. late one...

been proven that 45mins to an hour is the optimal amount but as little as 20mins is still helpful if very tired.

more than 1hr 15 and you go into a deeper sleep and are likely to feel drowsy for a long time after you wake up.

tip: take a korean ginseng energy tablet right before your nap and it'll be kicking in as you wake up :)

A short passage of sleep or slumber taken while dressed, with music playing and lights on (hence the term 'disco'), with the aim that one will not fall into deep sleep, thereby allowing the disco napper to relax and recharge whilst enjoying an album, but also wake up and go out later.

Contrary to some previous definitions, musical consumption and the intention to attend a musical or social function upon waking are key elements of the disco nap, otherwise it would just be a nap.
"When I get home from work I'm gonna take a disco nap to (artist/album title), then I'll join you at the club later.",

"I haven't had time to listen to that album all the way through yet - I'll probably take a disco nap to it after work. I'll tell you what I think when I see you tonight."
