Poll Clubs 2020: Chroma

Location: Incheon, South Korea
Capacity: 3,000

A custom-built club in the luxury Paradise City holiday resort near Incheon airport in South Korea, Chroma is designed to impress from the moment you lay eyes on it. A giant block of beautiful white stone adorned with a huge splosh of gold paint, its entrance is cleverly carved to appear like a curtain being lifted to reveal the secrets within.

Punters can while away the time in see-through jacuzzis or chilling on an inflatable at the indoor pool stage, where the music pumps out via the d&b audiotechnik Y-series soundsystem. Or head down to the main room — or one of the VIP boxes that overlook it if they’ve the cash to splash — and find Chroma’s crowning glory: the K-Sphere and Venetian, or as DJ Mag dubbed it on a previous visit, the Mini Death Star! A kinetic lighting rig, this impressive centrepiece expands like a robotic puzzle, unleashing a torrent of laser beams at the dancers below.

As one might expect from a shiny new Asian superclub, bookings lean towards big room sounds, with a menu of EDM, trance, future house and progressive sounds cooked up by the likes of Nicky Romero, Oliver Heldens, Paul van Dyk, Lucas & Steve, RL Grime, Vicetone and Timmy Trumpet — the latter of whom made his South Korean debut at Chroma last year. 


Poll Clubs 2019: CHROMA

Location: Incheon, South Korea

Capacity: 3,000

Another brand new entry to the poll and another win for Asian superclubs, which have begun to occupy a sizeable chunk of the poll over recent years. Based in the Paradise City resort just outside Incheon International Airport, Chroma isn’t just an added bonus to a luxury getaway but a verified belter of a venue. The club, which boasts an indoor swimming pool floor, food hall, VIP booths and a main dancefloor fitted with eye-popping laser-infested globes, only opened in late 2018, but has already brought over names such as Afrojack, Danny Avila, Nervo and Steve Aoki, and can even host festivals in its expansive outdoor surrounds.
