If you need proof that China is an ever-rising force in the global dance market, look no further than the ever-higher climbing Myst (which stands for Moving You, Stunning Trip). Located in Shanghai, the club is mindful of the world’s perception of the city, which tends to be nostalgic and rose-tinted, smoky and opulent.
As such the club is resplendent with the sort of features you just don't get at clubs over in The West: chief amongst these are a vast, back-lit water curtain that flows endlessly off to one side of the main room. As well as that, VIPs are catered for with no fewer than seven private party rooms and there are also lots of 3D mirror walls throughout the place.
The music is just as showy, and often relies on trance and EDM mega-stars for its kicks, whilst a glut of state-of-the-art technological features, lights and lasers, as well as tons and tons of confetti, often add drama to each party occasion. The last year has seen Tiesto pack the place out, Fedde Le Grand get people’s hands up and Steve Aoki doing whatever it is he does these days.
