Location: Patong Beach, Phuket, Thailand.
A staggering 1.3 million-plus party people have raved on Illuzion’s dancefloors since 2016. You can add at least another mill to that if you go back to the Phuket club’s grand launch in 2014. Visitor stats aren’t the only thing impressive about the Thailand superclub; a converted four-storey shopping mall slap-bang in the capital’s centre, its sprawling space is a dizzying maze of bars, balconies, private rooms and dancefloors big enough to house six massive CO2 cannons and mammoth LED screens. Constantly growing up the building, they’ve added a new club called Empire on its upper floor and plan to convert the roof into a new party space in the near future.
Illuzion’s rise up the Top 100 matches its constant developments. A new entry in 2016, it continues to rise through the ranks as its reputation builds among travelling music fans and touring acts who range from the likes of Bassjackers, Oliver Heldens, Marshmello, Mike Williams, Tujamo and Nicky Romero to live performers such as Soulja Boy, Tyga and Sean Kingston. Fully adaptable and versatile, open 365 days a year, and consistently warmed up by local residents Kraiz & Nyed, Fingaz, Samatsky, R-Cue, BKK Invaders, Jenil, Juicytrax and Juan Cuba, Illuzion is fast becoming one of South East Asia’s most popular clubbing experiences.
