Camden Town / Islington, London –
The heart of the early 90s rave scene still beats with fury at Egg, a converted warehouse with three stories of dance floors, a reverence for skilled DJs, and a twenty-four-hour license that can keep the spin worship going well after sunrise.
Bars on every floor help lubricate the movers and shakers, allowing them to grab a shot of liquid courage no matter where they find themselves. But if one floor gets too packed – or too tame – the venue’s massive stairway provides revelers easy access to Egg’s other strobe-lit, disco ball-studded areas.
Despite all the action inside, regulars often cite the garden as the joint’s most distinguishing feature, with its crimson canopy and ring of white leather booths giving marathon clubbers a place to share a smoke and down a can of Red Stripe while sheltered from the London rain.
And since no space at Egg is complete without one, a smaller dance floor also sits in the middle of this leafy refuge, giving dubsteppers and breakbeaters one more chance to find their alfresco dance groove.
With a crowd that treats DJs as idols and a space that makes it difficult to stand still, this raucous London hotspot offers strut fiends and dancing queens pure, unbridled Egg-stacy.
Young clubbers, musicians, and artists, 20s to 30s.
DJs spin different genres on each of the three dance floors, including house, breakbeat, techno, and dubstep.
Weekends usually feature promotional events or theme parties with well-known local and international DJs.
Small menu of sandwiches and appetizers. Tickets for special events can be purchased in advance online.
Advance tickets £10–£13, door prices £13–£20. Appetizers £4–£6. Beer £5+, wine £5+, shots £5+, cocktails £8–£9, bottle service £150+.
Casual chic: designer jeans, sneakers, t-shirts, platform heels, cocktail dresses.
Friday nights for the best DJs, and Saturdays for a party that doesn’t end until well into Sunday.
For a dance-free warm-up to the waiting groove marathon at Egg, Apothecary Bar (3 Vale Royal) features events like burlesque shows and stand-up comedy.
