Twenty to thirty minute nap you have to take before going out to party.

A power sleep to recouperate before going out for the night. Usually after a hard days work, but before heading out to the dancing.
Mags had a hard day down the IR and needed a wee Disco Nap to prep herself for the night ahead.

A brief nap taken after getting home from a long week of kickin' ass at work, before a big night out.
Dude, I'm stoked for tonight but it was a really long week. You better believe I'm gonna be raging, but I gotta get home and hit up a disco nap before I can even think about getting to it. Just gimme 20 and we're golden.

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 :)
"last night was heavy i only got 2 hours sleep"

"yeh i'm fine all i need is a disco nap and i'll be back on form!"
