Best DJ Clubs on the Planet

Comments  (7)

Jun 20, 2012 —  Imagine strolling down a derelict industrial corridor in Berlin and turning down a dirt driveway towards an abandoned power plant that could be straight out of the Chernobyl Diaries. You pass a bouncer and enter into a 1,500-person jungle of beauty and sweat as a world-class DJ spins and cold steam explodes into the screaming crowds while fluorescent spectacles of lasers dance under the gravity of black-lights.

For most people, it either sounds like a dream or a nightmare.

When it comes to nightlife, there­’s no scene more divided than the club scene. People love it or they hate it. But no matter where you stand, there’s nothing quite like the all-night ragers full of beautiful people and dirty dancing with heavy bass-lines that reverberate through their bodies; the kind of places where dazzling, glow-stick waving crowds with enlarged pupils keep the party going until sunrise.

And within the global meccas of DJ clubs, whether Ibiza or Los Angeles or Berlin, particular venues have risen above the rest with self-perpetuating legacies and decadent reputations that attract the top DJs year after year. And in an era where massive stadiums sell out when the world’s top electronic artists come to town, the clubs that can book them are the ones that keep their thrones.

Below are five DJ super-clubs that, for those who can pay or schmooze their way past the long lines, expensive covers, and selective bouncers (or who are simply patient), are guaranteed a wonderland of sight and sound. These places go the extra mile in delivering the most pulse-pounding, mind-boggling, eye-bulging dance experiences on the planet.

I would say XS in Las Vegas is a MUST for this list. I've been twice, and they always have killer DJs not to mention an indoor section, outdoor section with gondolas that serve as bottle service tables, a HUGE pool and another humungous bar. Even Tiesto says it's the best club in the world.

Marquee in Las Vegas has jumped to the top my list as well, absolutely mesmerizing stage setup and outdoor patio, and constantly bringing in the best DJs in the world.

Ministry of Sound is going to be going off for the Olympics. I'm sure all the big DJs will be in London the next two weeks.

Digweed crushed it at Avalon. Best set ever! I've never been to Berghain but have heard amazing things and am dying to go.

Avalon is definitely at the top of the list in LA. Pacha in both Madrid and Ibiza are pretty awesome too.

Eric Prydz performed at the Ministry of Sound in April! His set was incredible and the crowd was loving it. Make your way to the VIP lounge area upstairs to get a great view of the stage!
