Despite only holding 300, Toronto's Footwork's reputation is bigger than most and — judging by its performance in this poll — still growing.
Capacity might be tight, but its booking stature rivals any cavernous superclub, with serious clubbing values at its core. Despite the implications of its name, ghetto tech b-boys will have little joy here — only the classiest 120bpm house/techno is Footwork's blaring soundtrack. Dubfire, Sasha, Marco Carola, Richie Hawtin and Green Velvet are just a few of the industry monoliths to have entertained its snug congregation in its hour-glass shaped confines over the past few years.
Throw in some CO2 cannons, a customised soundsystem and a raw, stripped-back feel created by a cement bar and concrete pillars, and you have a winning combination — fancy Footwork indeed.
