Every year, the scope of our Top 100 Clubs poll gets wider and wider. What began as a European-leaning list is now a diverse and inclusive group of clubs from almost every corner of the planet. And each year, new clubs pop up in emerging and established dance music markets alike. Here are five new clubs aiming to break into 2016’s Top 100 Clubs poll, powered by Miller Genuine Draft.
WHITE CLUB, DUBAI
A spectacular, vast open-air venue with a stunning central stage, Dubai’s White Club are pulling out all the stops to storm into this year’s Top 100 Clubs poll. Revealed artist Dannic is a regular performer here.
London’s newest club Phonox do things differently. They are harking back to the age of the resident DJ, putting their faith in Jasper James to run every Saturday night at the venue alongside unannounced guests. James is the perfect choice for this ‘residents first’ booking policy as the son of Harri from Harri & Domenic - the long time residents of iconic Glasgow clubbing institution Sub Club.
SPACE IBIZA, NEW YORK
Geographically New York may be a long way from Ibiza, but the ethos of Space is clearly evident in this incredible club. Space Ibiza New York boasts multiple Funktion-One powered rooms and a stunning roof terrace with Manhattan skyline views. The main room, which overlooks the Hudson River, has large floor-to-ceiling windows. Be sure to stay until dawn, when the blinds are lifted.
Shanghai’s MYST are riding the wave of EDM’s growing popularity in China, bringing the World’s biggest DJs to the planet’s most populated city. Nervo, Bassjackers, Fedde le Grand and Quintino have all played recently, and Tiesto is due to perform here next month.
Colloseum is epic in every sense of the word! From the 16 metre high ceiling, massive central chandelier, thumping Funktion One soundsystem and DJs including Tujamo and Don Diablo - Colloseum has every angle covered.
