XOYO

Best Electronic nightclub in London!
XOYO

With focus set on a consistent and credible music policy, XOYO delivers an unrivalled weekend soundtrack to London. Located in the heart of Shoreditch, XOYO is housed across two floors (the top being sister-bar The Shoreditch Butchery). Outside of the club’s relentless weekend diary, XOYO showcases a fresh and on-point calendar of live music. An aspirational platform for London’s clubbers, XOYO pioneers a quarterly residency series which sees some of the world’s biggest and most talented DJs play every Friday for three consecutive months to thousands of dance music lovers.

Fabric

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.

Studio 338

Studio 338

Proving that Greenwich can rave just as hard as the rest of London is Studio 338, a sprawling club that combines the best elements of underground industrial venues with slicker super-club vibes. So whereas the nearby O2 is happy to flex its credentials as a location for arena rock and stadium dance acts, Studio 338’s multi-million pound refurb turned it into a far, far hipper destination, attracting dedicated dancers from across London and beyond. World-class house and techno DJs – from the underground side of things – regularly spin sets at S338, and another big draw is the all-night terrace; the terrace is covered, of course. Luckily, the inside of the club is just as appealing, leaning towards an industrial but colorful vibe.

  • 338 Boord St , SE10 0PF United Kingdom
  • Greenwich

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.

  • 918 Brixton Rd , SW9 7AY United Kingdom
  • Brixton
  • 9:30 PM – 4 AM Fri, Sat 4 – 10 PM Sunday

The Cause

The Cause

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 Cuckoo Club

The Cuckoo Club

Party with the most fashionable crowd at Cuckoo, exclusive private member's club located in Central London. Appealing to the more discerning late night London crowd tired of faceless bars and clubs with no creativity and soul, The Cuckoo Club features 5,000 square feet of ostentatious design, spread over two floors, and a founding committee that reads like a who’s who of creative talent in London, described in the influential Vogue List as “formidable”. Recently redesigned interior, featuring some of Europe’s most proficient mixologists and an electrifying and eclectic musical output, The Cuckoo Club delivers unbridled, unquestionable glamour for London’s party cavalry.

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.
