Location: Tokyo, Japan
A new entry in the Top 100 Clubs poll, Warp Shinjuku has made a significant impact on Tokyo nightlife in a relatively short amount of time. A sprawling complex, complete with excellent cocktail bar and intense, cavernous, two-tiered main room — the Universe Floor — alongside the more intimate Cosmo area upstairs, considering the constant stream of high-profile international guests it’s no surprise this place has coined the phrase “from the world to Tokyo, from Tokyo to the Universe”.
While regularly offering house and techno, the building is best-known for sounds on an equal scale to its largest dancefloor, welcoming names such as Da Tweekaz, Aly & Fila and Sam Feldt in the last couple of years. Production matches for size, with confetti, pyrotechnics, CO2 blasts and a massive LED screen — rising almost two-stories — used for mind-blowing visuals.
A strong resident DJ contingency has helped cement its reputation to no end, with Bar:D Suzuki, Ibaki, Kage, Max, Ryohey, Shimon, and Tomopiro among the talent currently calling this place home. A truly futuristic venue for one of the planet’s most futuristic capitals, it was only a matter of time until it made an appearance on these coveted pages.
