Location: Seattle, WA, USA
Foundation has found itself on the Top 100 list more than once, but it has continually evolved to become a truly integral part of Seattle’s dance music nightlife landscape. The intimate venue, previously home to several restaurants and former clubs, doesn’t boast Vegas-style square-footage, but it more than makes up for space with its unique, welcoming vibe and loyal following — and of course, that super dope KV2 Audio system doesn’t hurt either.
The club’s not without amenities, either: there are three luxurious VIP areas, three bars, and a staff that gets top marks from partygoers, which is not something that’s easy to come by in nightlife. Looking for a party in Seattle mid-week? Foundation has you covered, with its popular SUBstance Wednesdays event kicking off the weekend early on hump-day (there’s also Resonate Fridays and Elevate Saturdays, in case your weekend needs a little spark). Billed as an “all-EDM format” luxury nightclub spot, this year the venue has hosted artists such as Yellow Claw, Adventure Club, Kaskade, Flosstradamus, Dada Life, Mija, Jauz, Madeon, Excision, and Deadmau5 himself.
