When you think of London, several images come to mind. One one end, you picture royalty, class and maybe Manchester United. On the other end, you picture live music, Dr Martens walking down city streets, random musicians banging on tin drums in warehouses. THIS is the London that is magnetic to EDM fans.
Electronic music is nothing new in the UK. They’ve even been responsible for several subgenres in the scene, which is assurance that the nightlife caters to that. Many of the staple clubs in London’s dance music scene sprung up in the 1990s when electronic music was really beginning (or continuing) to boom. Whether you are a UK local, on a group backpacking trip from the States, studying abroad, or on a self-exploring trip, chances are to get the full experience you will want to hit up a club in London.
It’s a guarantee that the music will be well-picked if the club brand is also a record label. That is the case for Fabric, Farringdon’s premium nightlife choice. The music sits between techno, dubstep, house and drum and bass- think Claude Vonstroke, Skrillex and Midland. Three rooms across 25,000 square feet means no loss of space to get your groove on.
However, particularly for those who go to clubs to be fully engulfed in the sound, there is Room One. Famous for it’s floors attached to bass transducers, Room One gives new meaning to feeling the bass by literally pumping low bass frequencies through your feet to fill your entire dancing body with the music.

Ministry of Sound
Ministry of Sound is a tribute to the importance of audio in nightlife, an idea that is often forgotten in the modern age of “trendy clubs.” This Southwark club is a veteran in London’s entertainment scene, opening in 1991 by an owner that set out to put music first, lights second, and atmosphere third- a refreshing break from many clubs’ priorities today.
In 2016, Ministry of Sound had Dolby Laboratories install Dolby Atmos, their 64-speaker, 22-channel sound system that gives a new name to good sound. The system fills the club’s main room, most crowded on their Saturday night “club nights” which host acts from Marshmello to Zeds Dead. Friday nights are a favorite for Trance lovers eager to hear artists like Markus Shultz.

This moody-chic Shoreditch classic, delivering musical variety London residents and vacayers enjoy, has 2 floors, resident DJs and all that good stuff. The lights and ambiance of XOYO are slightly reminiscent of a 70s club. This all goes flawlessly with their signature “XOYO Loves,” night during which they play more melodic tracks across the EDM board, but especially residing in the disco genre.
Funny name, serious party. Egg London is open until 6 am, so instead of waking up in the wee morning hours hungover, you will still be enjoying the party. Egg is a trailblazer among clubs by offering “memberships” that guarantee discounted and fast track entry among several other benefits.
Even better than that is their “student membership,” a GENIUS option for collegiates who want to stay ahead of the curve and in the know when it comes to nightclubs among their peers. So while America’s college students are pounding Natty Lights at a dive bar, London’s are waltzing into upscale nightclubs with their +2 in stilettos and silk.
Three dance floors and a spread out outdoor terrace make the layout. As for the music, house and techno are the main flavors. Come on Fridays for the new DJ names ready to make their big break. Saturdays are more seasoned- bringing in international DJs and all their glorious consistency.
For a more low-maintenance yet mega-urban feel there is Corsica Studios. Between the relaxed dress code, reasonable drink prices, and brick walls allowing for even more dynamic sound, Corsica makes way for EDM fans who aren’t into other distractions.
The intimate southeast London club often brings in talent that isn’t fully on the mainstream radar yet. The genres go across the board- techno, house, electro, disco, and even hints of dubstep and drum and bass.
Anyone who’s lived in Vegas and worked in the service industry knows that the holy grail of service jobs for females is as cocktail servers at the summer dayclub pool parties. The ladies who secure jobs at these establishments can make six-figure salaries for less than six months of three-days-a-week, eight-hours-a-day work. In addition, it is widely known that male customers in Vegas will tend to spend more money in the presence of attractive females, so it’s just good business for the venues to stock their services staff with eye candy, and the corresponding server tip pools for them can be sizable at the end of a high-demand day.
As a result, these dayclub bartender and table server positions are the most competitive, most selective, and most coveted out of any casino front-lines customer service job position offered in Vegas, and the best venues thus have the luxury of choosing from an endless candidate pool of the most attractive women in the world. And because the women at the dayclubs have to wear bikinis in broad daylight and show skin to a much further extent than their nightclub server counterparts do, they are usually a cut above in terms of physical appearance as well as demeanor and personality.
It’s a consensus among most of us Vegas service industry insiders that the most attractive female service staff works over at Encore Beach Club (shown above), one of the best pool parties in Vegas 7+ years running. This assessment is backed up by anecdotal evidence from numerous women who have participated in annual tryouts for casino pool party service jobs; many claim that tryouts for EBC are both the most well-attended and the most demanding, owing in large part to the higher-spending clientele that EBC attracts. The Wet Republic staff (shown below) is rated a close second to EBC, followed by Marquee Dayclub, Daylight, and Drai’s Beach Club.
But don’t take our word for it. You can do some, ahem, “research” yourself on your next trip out to Vegas. Use the Discotech app to search Vegas pool parties by the specific dates you’ll be in town, and then buy tickets, sign up for guest lists, or even reserve tables if you’re feeling super-fancy. The app event info refreshes daily, pulling from various Las Vegs entertainment online resources including the official websites of the clubs themselves, so it’s always current, accurate, and in the know. Pro tip: the bigger the featured performer that day, the better the odds of the venue having all of their “A” Team servers working, and the better the eye candy for you to admire.

Do Not Sit on the Furniture
Owned by DJ Behrouz and intimately referred to as Do Not Sit by the regulars, this forward-thinking South Beach gem is perfect for deep house and techno lovers who appreciate low-key venues focused on the music.
Part lounge, part restaurant, part strip club, part mega club…E11even truly has it all! Come here if you want to experience a glamorous night of people-watching and bottle popping with aerial dancers to boot….just remember: No pics allowed! What happens at E11even stays at E11even.
Another 24-hour option in downtown Miami, Heart is a multi-level, multi-genre playing afterhours spot boasting a spankin’ new Funktion One sound system. The wide open dancefloor is uninterrupted by VIP tables, so you know what their priorities are!
One of the most upscale clubs in South Beach, Liv attracts celebrities and big name DJs on the regular. Since it’s located at the Fontainebleau hotel, you could technically stay on the premises all weekend and experience the best of Miami 24/7! Come here if you want to splurge on VIP experiences and get LIT!
Infamous enough to have satellite operations across exotic international locations (Ibiza, Bali, Dubai, Saint Tropez, etc.), Nikki Beach is an indoor/outdoor danceclub+ seafood restaurant with one of the most fabulous Sunday brunch buffets in Miami! This isn’t your average brunch – think: DJs, live music, Go-go dancers, and an all around cool, energetic vibe that transports you to Ibiza!
Boasting one of the best sound systems and interiors of any club in the country, Story appeals to fans across all EDM genres, depending on the night. Fridays are generally for the big festival headliners, like Tiesto, while Saturdays are reserved for cutting edge underground acts, like Chris Liebing. Take your pick, though we recommend trying both! This high-end club never gets it wrong.
Located in the heart of South Beach on Collins Avenue, Trade’s jungle vibes and eclectic lineup will surely get you in the groove any given night. Distinct from many of the glitzy clubs in SoBe, Trade appeals to guests who are there for the music and want to skip the velvet rope rituals.
Kitschy, quirky, and cool, Treehouse is a triple threat. The atmosphere is dark and brooding with a slight nautical flair that makes you want to surf the sonic waves all night long. While the main dancehall is urban-chic, the outdoor patio is a lush lounge that helps you understand their whimsical name. Treehouse offers the perfect balance between a club and a lounge, and boasts an eclectic, vibrant crowd that will keep you coming back for more.
