TOP 10 NIGHT CLUBS
Over the course of its existence, Berghain has become associated with decadence and hedonism. A 2006 New Zealand Herald article describes “people openly indulging in sexual acts”inside the club, with the building, at the time, containing several dark rooms specifically set aside for such activity. The Guardian writer Helen Pidd stated in a 2008 article, “… walk past the booths on the ground floor and you’re sure to see a bare bottom or 10”.Photography is strictly forbidden inside Berghain and no mirrors or reflecting surfaces can be found anywhere in the club.
Berghain is also renowned for its lengthy opening hours. As Pidd wrote in 2008, “no one arrives before 4am, and most stay until well past teatime”.Jesse Rose, whose “Made To Play” music label ran a residency at the club in 2011, explained his appreciation of the club for DJ Magazine’s 2011 “Top 100 Clubs” list thus:
Still the best club in the world for me because it doesn’t care about being the best club in the world. The guys do what they want, the way they want and it continually works. No VIP, no mirrors in the bathroom, no expensive cocktails, just a good sound system and great crowd.

4.La Terrrazza Barcelona
It was one of the first clubs in Barcelona to unite the open air and house music. The city might be full of them now, but eighteen years later, the club is still the touchstone of its kind. Located in the Poble Espanyol, this vast, Ibiza-flavoured terrace is a grand display of sculpted bodies, jaunty cleavage, marble buttocks, swirling pheromones and frisky foreigners. Little clothing is advised, but don’t dress like you’re going to the pool. Swimsuit and flip-flops will leave you stranded at the door.
Closure is a nightclub in its purest form: open minded and underground, with minimalistic lighting and a dance floor layered around the DJ. Situated centrally in Amsterdam, directly on the Rozengracht, it’s a club that continuously creates space for contemporary electronic music.
At Closure both local and international talents are invited to explore their chosen sonic terrain. Disco, house and techno in all their forms express a single, simple rule: it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from, it’s the music that speaks.
Space first opened in early summer, 1986. The opening night featured the opening of the water park Aguamar located behind the club, party-goers being able to take advantage of the waterslides at night.
Space in its current form began in 1989 when Pepe Rosello, Ibiza nightclub owner since 1963, took over the establishment, which in the four years since it was built had housed a conference hall with a discothèque. The opening policy agreed with Spanish licensing laws, which state that an establishment must close for at least two hours a day.
The first DJs to shape the venue into its current shape were Alex P and Brandon Block — two British club DJs/Producers and residents of Sunday Space Terrace — Space’s outdoor terrace, where airliners roar overhead.This open terrace and the roaring sound of the airliners breaking through the booming dance music has become one of the club’s defining features. Since Amnesia and Privilege have had to encase their open-air dance-floors due to noise complaints from their neighbours, Space remains one of the few venues where club-goers can have this experience, and the crowd’s greeting of the arriving aircraft has also become a ritual among the club’s patrons.
Other resident DJs/producers responsible for the club’s popularity include Reche, Jose de Divina and Jon Ulysses. Space released compilations every year via the former Azuli label and now with CR2 Records.
7.Warung Beach Club
Residing on a stretch of South American coastline dubbed the “Ibiza of Brazil” by some, on paper Warung Beach Club has faced increasingly stern competition over recent years, with the formation of Green Valley and most recently Space B. Camboriu.
Quite simply, however, no presence in the area has come close to this Bali-themed giant teepee tucked away in the heart of the jungle, owned in part by D-Edge’s Renato Ratier.
The aforementioned may have size and “EDM” stature on their side, but neither have the bravery to dig as deep to solely book — exclusively, at least — such (relatively) under-the-radar names on the house and techno circuit.
Solomun, Jamie Jones and Seth Troxler might already be considered underground giants in Europe, but in Brazil they are rapidly rising stars, thanks in no small part to this wonderful club.
Ageing party-goers still remember it as Space Lab Yellow, the legendary nightclub that closed in 2008 when its building was earmarked for demolition. When that demolition didn’t happen, the two-floor subterranean space was overhauled and reopened under a new name but many of the same staff. Eleven is a regular stopover for big-name house and techno DJs – Jeff Mills, Carl Craig and Seth Troxler all played there last year – but also hosts the odd dubstep night, as well as a weekly reggae party overseen by Japanese ragamuffins Rub-a-Dub Market. And while it’s within easy walking distance of Roppongi, the capital’s hotbed of sleazy pickup joints, it tends to draw a classier crowd.
As seen on TV and heard in rap lyrics by everyone from Kanye West to Drake, LIV sets the standard for megaclubs worldwide. Nestled inside the lobby of the historic Fontainebleau hotel—itself a backdrop for major motion pictures including Scarface to Goldfinger—LIV is at once opulent and turntbeyond belief. Afrojack, Martin Garrix and Laidback Luke hold down monthly residencies at the EDM powerhouse alongside a regular program of huge DJs and rap stars. And the stars show up to worship. On any given Sunday, you might run into Floyd Mayweather, Lil Wayne or a Kardashian. With a focus on bottle service, there is more table space than dance floor. Deep pockets are encouraged.
10.Social Club Paris
Social Club is a small but buzzing club with a reputation for drawing a young, lively crowd. It’s barely midnight and the dancefloor is already busy with French kids dancing to techno. Perhaps fittingly, the signature drink is a shot of mint vodka – apparently you can’t go there without drinking one. (So you know, it’s flouro green and tastes like mouthwash).
As Jean-Baptiste explains, it’s been three years since Institubes ended. Now newer labels are pushing things forward – Clek Clek Boom, Bromance and Marble (founded by Para One and other former Institubes) continue to fuel a distinctively eclectic party sound. As for promoters, dozens of collectives are putting on events each with their own distinct feel. Débrouï’art and Cracki are two which formed in 2010 and are known for their artistically-curated events (Cracki are putting on their first festival this year with fellow promoters Mamie’s in locations around Paris and its suburbs), while newer crews worth following include Magie Noire, who programme solid techno nights in the city’s more traditional venues.
