DJ Mag Top100 Clubs

Whether it's EDM, trance or house blasting from the Funktion One systems, it seems the one rule of Boothaus is party hard. Boosted to up the league tables by the legendary Loonyland events — founded by promoters U Lee and Sascha as way to escape the techno obsession that dominates most of Germany — the Cologne club has become a veritable bastion of all things big, loud and stupefying.

Boothaus regularly plays host to an impressive assortment of the world's biggest DJs, with the likes of Oliver Heldens, Paul van Dyke, Yellow Claw, Borgore and Axwell Λ Ingrosso all gracing the decks in the last year alone.

The club is split over three rooms: an amphitheatre-like main room complete with flamethrowers and robots (yes robots!), a second room known as BLCKBX — lit by LED lights hidden behind huge fans for that warehouse vibe — and DREHEREI, a smaller, industrial space.

A new open-air area has also been added recently, making Boothaus the complete package. With yet more gargantuan names such as Dannic and his countryman, the Dutch don Tiësto, booked in for the coming months, it looks like business as usual for Boothaus in 2016.
