Pacha Sharm
5

THE best clubs take full advantage of their surroundings and shape them to their own ends. There are few better examples than Pacha's Egyptian conurbation, which accepts that the land stays baking hot and it ain't going to rain much. Dispensing with a roof altogether, it fills its spectacular club arena with the kind of stylish décor touches and understated style that the worldwide brand is famous for. With a spectacular waterfall and pool at its heart, and VIP terrace surrounding the central dancefloor, it's clearly the jewel in North Africa's clubbing crown - testament of which is its popularity among you lot, who've edged it closer to the top spot this year. And with such a reputation, it's unsurprising that Pacha Sharm attracts the cream of the commercial house crop: recent guests have included David Guetta and Sander Kleinenberg, while Egyptian trance DJ heroes Aly & Fila held their album launch party there in 2010. "Pacha in Sharm is an amazing venue," enthuse Aly & Fila. "The atmosphere is brilliant, we really enjoy playing there, and are happy that a venue like this is in our home country."
