Houston’s Stereo Live is the brainchild of one of Texas’ biggest and best EDM promoters. As such, they have a pretty good understanding of how to put together a club, and the balls and the money to put together a really big club. Spread out over 30,000 sq. ft., two floors and an expansive outdoor patio, Stereo live has staked its claim as the king of the EDM scene. The list of headliners that have taken to the main stage (yes an actual stage, not just an elevated DJ booth) reads like a who’s-who of national and international superstars: Paul Van Dyk, Kaskade, Ferry Corsten, Armin Van Buuren, Afrojack, Nadia Ali, Starkillers, ATB, Benny Benassi, and the list goes on.
The main dance floor is close to 9,000 sq. ft., serviced by three bars and is lit up by pretty stunning array of spotlights, LEDs, neon and other assorted shiny objects. Multiple video displays, including a massive floor to ceiling projection screen behind the main stage, enhance the overall visual effect. The sound system is Crown and JBL affair, capable of pumping a lot of quality sound out to the crowd.
The upstairs mezzanine features more viewing and dancing space, as well as VIP/bottle service sections overlooking the main floor, and another private VIP section with its own bar and DJ. The covered outdoor patio also features a separate DJ booth and full service bar. Overall the look is stylish, trendy, and a certain amount of casual chic.
The atmosphere is energetic, the interior is welcoming and the space is enormous. Stereo Live is an 18+ venue. Not necessarily dress to impress, but definitely don’t dress down.
