Fabric

Best Electronic nightclub in London!
Fabric

Welcome to London’s most premier venue that is known for hosting a series of weekly lineups that feature the biggest names in the electronic music world. The Fabric nightclub in London is a subterranean labyrinth. Three rooms, various floors, a network of staircases and no phone signal whatsoever make for a rather disorientating experience, but that’s all part of the appeal. The purposeful layout of the club with three specialized and distinctive rooms to cater to the different needs of its guests, along with world-class sound systems creates a revolutionary experience unlike any other. Emerging from its depths after hours of losing yourself in the music almost feels like stepping back into another reality.

Phonox

Phonox

Brixton club Phonox looks to be kind of a big deal for south London nightlife, and in fact London clubbing as a whole. After the team behind acclaimed nightspots including XOYO, The Nest, the Old Queen’s Head and the Blues Kitchen franchises purchased the site of former Brixton club Plan B when it shut down, they wasted little time in transforming it into Phonox. The club has a similar feel to both XOYO and the Nest: a sleek, dark dance cavern with plenty of space for dancing, and the programming leans very much towards the leftfield side of dance music – don’t expect cheesy ’80s nights here, it’s quality, underground house, techno, disco and bass all the way.

The Cause, a 400-capacity club in Tottenham, hopes to fill the gap in London’s nightlife and promote community and mental-health charities. The venue, opening in a former car-mechanics depot, is crowdfunding to give clubbers the opportunity to party around a literal centrepiece DJ booth with a custom soundsystem by Core. Through a monthly membership program, The Cause aims to raise £25,000 to give to its charity partners, which include Mind In Haringey, C.A.L.M. and Help Musicians UK. “The Cause is designed from the ground up to give back to people around us,” says co-founder Stuart Glen.

The Pickle Factory

The Pickle Factory

This industrial-ish space in Tower Hamlets was indeed used to operate as a working pickle factory, but after being used for foodie pop-ups and exhibitions in 2013, Oval Space have fully revamped the intimate venue as a club and live music space. Expect an alternative and esoteric programme, and be ready for leftfield but thoroughly banging DJ sets from underground heroes and mind-bending arty bands.

The Nest

The Nest

In late 2010, The Nest opened in an intimate, 350 capacity basement in Dalston with the aim to create a new clubbing space focused on forward-thinking dance music. Showcasing hot undiscovered talent alongside more established names, a quality soundsystem and new lighting, the club holds a captivating atmosphere and intimate setting unlike anywhere else in the capital. Weekly nights shout out the club’s hip electro and disco credentials and a solid programme of international, alternative DJs make this an even more appealing venue in which to nest-up for the night.
