A venue for artists, by artists, Temple Nightclub offers a nightlife experience that is unrivaled in the Mile High region. From awe-inspiring, fully immersive state of the art lighting and visuals, to a thundering custom sound system, paired with world-class talent, bottle service and theatrical production, this place is like no other. The party usually kicks off around 9PM, so make sure to check upcoming events at Temple Nightclub so not to miss your favorite DJ’s.
Upon entering through the motion activated light corridor, you teleport into a higher dimension of nightlife. The 3 story main room cathedral elicits a sense of excitement and grandeur. A nightclub atmosphere of unparalleled cohesiveness, all theatrical lighting and production elements were conceptualized and designed for the entire room to act as a single organism pulsating to the rhythm of a single heartbeat.
In the sub level lies the main dancefloor where guests will find a custom DJ booth, thundering Funktion One sound system and 50,000 addressable, floor-to-ceiling LED bulbs. Surrounding the dance floor are four VIP booths and a two tiered stadium seating platform comprising 8 VIP sections which offer a high-energy experience for guests who wish to be in the center of the action. At the forefront of the dance floor is the main stage, which has been designed specifically to showcase Temple’s world-renowned artists, DJs, and performers. The main room is complete with 8 mezzanine tables that hover above the main dance floor, offering unparalleled and immersive views of the action in a private setting.
The sound system at Temple Denver has been designed to provide the ultimate listening experience. Through decades of constant refinement and testing, Funktion One has achieved a level of fidelity across the frequency spectrum that was previously unheard of at night club sound pressure levels. The low frequencies provided by the newest Funktion One F221 woofers and BR132A subwoofers are configured in a non-conventional manner. The BR132 is perhaps one of the only true, high output subwoofers in the world.
Temple Denver is 1 of only 3 venues in the United States to have this innovative technology and has achieved what many nightclubs have attempted, but failed to accomplish; the feat of producing the ultimate sound experience of a pulsating system that is not overbearing to conversations or harming to the audible senses.
You might be wondering, is this real? Yes it is. Will God judge me for raging in a former house of worship? I can’t answer that, but what I can tell you is raging is an understatement. This place throws down. Imagine a festival. Now imagine putting a three-story church on top of that festival. There you go. Welcome to The Church.
The venue features stained-glass windows, high-beamed gothic architecture and hundreds of candles spread throughout the Church suggest a pious vibe in the past house of worship, but the congregation is as mixed as they come. Built-in 1865, the roomy, multi-level Lincoln Street mainstay draws globally based DJs, local residents, retro lovers, even the under-21 set: Sections of the bar are open to those 18 and up. A rooftop patio affords one of the city’s best views. Confessional booths, although maybe more needed then ever, have been replaced with bottle service tables, available to anyone looking to party hard. To see what’s happening at The Church this weekend, make sure to check out upcoming events at the Church.
Club Vinyl is a beast of a space that occupies four distinct floors in an old industrial setting. From the basement to the rooftop (open and comfortable every day, despite Colorado’s weather), there’s a different vibe going on on each floor. The basement’s dark with glowing bottle service tables lining the sides of the room coupled with a distinct underground feeling. The main floor above it is similar but with much more production; a Funktion One sound system, a space to chill in the back of the room, and two designated bottle service booths.
There is lots of seating outside, including fire pits, heaters for when it’s cool out, and misters for when it’s warm. You can also rent out hookahs on the rooftop. The inside features even more bottle service tables and a second Funktion One sound system. Off of the main floor is a patio for smoking. The second floor splits into two halves—one half is called the Glass Lounge, which is primarily used as a private events space, and the other half has bottle service booths, pool tables and a dancefloor where you can usually find circles of people breakdancing to Top 40 music.
The rooftop is partially enclosed on one half, partially exposed to the elements on the other half. Up and coming EDM DJs are always found throwing down new underground music not yet ruined by popularity. This venue is an EDM junkie’s dream, so make sure to check out upcoming events at Club Vinyl to catch your favorite DJs!
Once the home of Serengeti and Shelter, Bar Standard is an Art Deco-themed, modern-day speakeasy. While the name and look may have changed, the club, housed in the former Jonas Bros. Furs building, still brings in some of the area’s best DJs — who spin house and dance music — as well as more high-profile national DJs. In addition, Bar Standard occasionally brings in live acts like the Cool Kids to perform on stage. The main area of the upscale club fills up quickly on the weekends, but there are two patios, both of which offer gorgeous views of Denver’s skyline, to escape the masses. Make sure to check out upcoming events at Bar Standard to see what’s going down!
This is definietly one of the coolest spots in Denver. Few clubs that I know of offer both a rooftop bar as well as an inside dance hall. This is definitely a place worth checking out.
The Black Box
Last but not least, Black Box. This venue is a refuge from the everyday, a home for experimentation and heart felt emotion. Their mission is simple, to move people through sound. They host a wide range of genres, allowing patrons from all walks to experience the power of music on a proper sound system. The dual room venue is fully equipped with the powerful, state-of-the-art Basscouch Sound consisting of a Tannoy, Funktion-One, and Othorn combination. A haven for artists, audiophiles, and partygoers alike, The Black Box is headquarters for Colorado’s underground music community.
The club itself is intimate with dark lights, and lots of lazers. Needless to say this is a totally different experience from big venues where you catch what some might call “radio DJs”. Instead, The Black Box aims to give EDM goers a more intmitate experience with music thats up and coming.
Honorable Mention: Red Rocks Amphitheater
Now, I know exactly what you are probably thinking right now. This is not a club, so why is it on the top EDM clubs in Denver? The Red Rock Amphitheater is not a club. However, this venue deserves a shoutout as it has recently been attracting some of the biggest names in EDM and I felt it was only fair to let my EDM bretheran know where to find that next epic party.
Big Wild & Whethan, Above and Beyond, Rezz, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Snails b2b Kill the Noise, Illenium, Troyboi and deadMau5 are among the many who are coming or have come to Red Rocks to preform. And there will be others. Althought not a club, Red Rocks Amphitheater has brought some of the biggest names in electronic dance music to Denver, and so I felt it necessary to throw in the mix.
Red Rocks Amphitheatre for those who don’t know is a beautfiul open-air amphitheatre built into a rock structure near Morrison, Colorado and is located 10 miles west of Denver.

The undeniable top EDM club in the city. Omnia San Diego, just like its sister club in Las Vegas, regularly showcases world class talent such as Zedd, Calvin Harris, and Tiesto. When guests walk through the doors on the corner of Sixth and Island Ave., they will immediately be immersed into the dark, provocative and intriguing world that is Omnia, replete with burgundy velvet wallcovering at the ticketing desk and a mirrored portal lined with mesmerizing LED screens. The 8000 square feet main room along with the 4000 square feet VIP boxes balcony lies below a 7000 square feet rooftop terrace. Omnia SD is the biggest and most opulant club in SD with the best DJs in the world. What more can you ask for?
Parq will often feature some pretty top tier EDM DJs, but they also feature big hip hop artists as well. We’d recommend checking out the upcoming events at Parq to see who’s performing. Guestlist & bottle service is also available on the app.
Bassmnt SD is all about EDM, but if you like a little variety, a separate room featuring hip hop and other music is accessible. Two small bars and a large one make sure you can keep the alcohol flowing whenever you want. Drinks are also fairly priced. However, parking is limited in the area so do arrive early to secure entry. While Bassmnt is relatively smaller than Omnia, the club still has great talent spinning most of the nights. Entry can be tricky at times as bouncers tend to be rather strict. For guaranteed entry, definitely get your tickets or book a table in advance.
The first thing you’ll notice when arriving at Bang Bang is its Tokyo-subway-station-styled entrance, which leads up to a second-floor space accessed from a steep stairwell that designers revamped into a tile-lined tunnel with piped-in subway sounds. Upstairs, diners can choose between the quieter, well-lit sushi barroom or the dimly lit social room with bar, dance floor and an endless stream of weird Japanese videos and cartoons playing on the walls. On weekends, the venue opens til late as a nightclub. If you’re looking for a nice kick, do try out the Punch Bowl with a couple of friends and you will be set all night. Get your tickets now and book bottle service for Bang Bang!
Two dance floors, kinetic lighting and lasers, as well as an open air roof deck with a great view of the city, Spin promises to give you a great time. On top of all that, the kitchen opens til 6am so you won’t have to be worried about having to trade dancing for leaving to eat. You’ll typically find more underground talent at Spin. Think techno, deep house, drum and bass, etc. See who’s spinning, get tickets, and book tables for Spin!
Sunburn (pool party)
What is summer without great pool parties? San Diego may be famous for its beaches but a proper pool party is always need to complete your summer. Sunburn at Hard Rock offers the best pool party in town featuring a laidback pool, tasty BBQ eats, VIP daybeds, and cabanas with lounge seating and flat screen TVs. Grab your sunnies, your swankiest pool gear and your crew and meet us poolside for some hot fun at the coolest spot in downtown! Sunburn typically plays Open Format music – you’ll find a mix of Top 40, EDM and Hip Hop on any given Saturday. General admission is a little steep here – we recommend bottle service for the best VIP experience. Presale tickets are also a good option.
For the most part, luxury night clubs play a mix of hip hop music with EDM (electronic dance music). EDM clubs in Chicago tend to draw a crowd of fun, lively people that love to get down on the dance floor. Your experience, however, depends on your budget and preference of venue. Come find shelter from the weather of the Windy City at one of the fun-filled clubs below. Use the Discotech app or website to see who’s playing, book table service, and buy tickets to all of the clubs below.
Currently, River North is the main area of the city that houses most EDM clubs.
For those of you opting for variety, you’ll want to head over to Sound Bar, which plays everything from Top 40 to EDM to hip hop, depending on what area of the club you find yourself at. Equipped with two levels, four boutique lounges, nine bars, and an exclusive VIP room, you’ll have no difficulty finding a scene you enjoy using the Discotech app.
Originally housed on the fourth floor of the magnificent Wrigleyville building (also home to Metro), this venerated dance club is now in the basement. A makeover in 2006 slicked up the looks a notch and brought back a vibrant young crowd. But more importantly, Smartbar boasts a world-class Funktion One sound system, which sounds tremendous on the central dance floor. Typical bills find cutting-edge DJs from Europe, Detroit and Chicago spinning for the crowd. You’ll typically find more underground DJs here. Think techno, deep house, drum & bass, etc. Tickets available on the Discotech app.

When you think of drinking in Japan, there are kitschy theme bars, salarymen staying up until the wee hours only to end up napping at train stations till it’s time to clock in and decades-old, hole-in-the-wall establishments serving sake and light beer, as seen on Netflix’s popular series Midnight Diner: Tokyo Stories. But it’s only been a couple of years since the Japanese government lifted some of its 25-year-old Footloose-style, no-dancing-after-midnight laws. That’s partially thanks to one of Tokyo’s oldest hip-hop advocates, Hideyuki Yukoi aka Zeebra, who, along with his group King Giddra, played an important role in the development of the underground Japanese hip-hop scene in the early Nineties. On a visit to Delhi for the third edition of the India Nightlife Convention and Awards (INCA), Yukoi discusses his role as a nightlife ambassador, the similarities between Japan and India’s nightscape and his country’s excellent vinyl revolution.
As nightlife ambassador of Tokyo’s Shibuya district, what is it that you actually do?
I set up meetings between the government and the club owners, party organisers and nightlife representatives to come up with ideas to enhance the industry. Right now, we’re focused on amending restrictions on the size and area of clubs. I also represent the club and club culture conference in Tokyo, a platform that brings the city’s artists and DJ community together.
How did this role come about?
It happened when Mirik Milan (former Night Mayor of Amsterdam) and the (actual) mayor of Amsterdam invited us to be a part of the Night Mayor Summit in Amsterdam. The tourism board of Shibuya district then made me the official Nightlife Ambassador. We’re now working to expand the Night Mayor system to other Japanese cities.
Have you experienced India’s nightlife?
India and Japan are quite similar. Both countries have suffered from a heavily licenced nightlife, which resulted in a certain stunting of the industry. Japan’s strictest laws have been lifted now, but there are others that continue to exist.
So, what is the nightlife like in Tokyo?
It’s growing, for sure. Since the laws have relaxed, there’s been a spike in private investors and sponsors. Shibuya’s seen a massive change, and we want it to be a blueprint for other parts of the country.
What kind of music is popular?
It usually depends on the city. Roppongi sees a lot of tourists, so clubs there play a lot of EDM. House and techno music are coming back in a big way. There’s also a sort of vinyl revolution taking place, with musicians and artists from all over the world coming to Shibuya to browse and shop for prized and rare LPs.
What about drinks?
Whisky and soda is the preferred drink for most. Shochu is loved by all – it can be mixed with juice, green tea, soda, anything! Sake’s popular, but it’s only served in restaurants and bars. And, of course, tequila.
Where do you recommend partying?
In Shibuya, Vision, Bloody Angle and AgeHa – one of the largest clubs in Tokyo. Contact plays amazing house; go to Harlem or 1 OAK Tokyo for hip-hop, Womb for electronic music. The Shimokitazawa district is known for its indie bars, restaurants and performance venues.
Zeebra’s top spots to dance the night away in Osaka and Kyoto
Ghost, Giraffe, Xex WEST
Don’t forget to stroll in and around Nihonbashi but enter love hotels and video game arcades at your own risk – this is where Black Mirror episodes come to life. Also make friends with the fun barkeeps at Takotako King.
Butterfly, World, Club Metro
Kyoto’s charm lies in its many bylanes, chock-a-block with bars the size of small living rooms. Jazz bars are extremely popular, like Hello Dolly.
Popular Chicago music venue the MID has announced that it will be closing its doors for good on February 5, 2019.
The sleek nightlife hotspot has attributed their closure to recent expansion of the city’s West Loop neighborhood and Fulton Market District.
Opening its doors in 2010, the MID has hosted a range of noteworthy artists such as Adam Beyer, Derrick Carter, Green Velvet, Laurent Garnier, Skrillex, Deep Dish, Diplo Claude Von Stroke, and more.
In the months leading up to its closure, the venue plans on announcing a number of special “farewell parties” to give the location a proper send-off. Club owners Lucas King and Nick Karounos admit that they are sad to say farewell to their endeared nightclub but look forward to opening new venues in Chicago very soon.
“These last remaining months will be a celebration of the past and a toast to the future,” says club owner Lucas King. “We want to thank all the fans, artists, employees, agents, managers, and promoters who have supported us throughout this era. As a token of our appreciation, we are putting together some very special events leading up to that “One Last Song.”
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.
See upcoming events, and book tables for Fabric on the Discotech app.
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.
You can download the Discotech app to see upcoming events, and book tables for Ministry of Sound.
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.
