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 :)

Any nap that is followed by raucous mayhem, dancing and illicit activities.
Its ok to take a disco nap at 10am, as long as the party starts at 11!
