Sub Club

Unlike a number of other clubs in this poll, which rely on the larger than life sights and sounds of EDM to fill their cavernous confines, the Subbie is a different kettle of fish altogether. A steely, compact basement with a Bodysonic dancefloor on Jamaica Street in the heart of the Glasgow city centre, what this little club lacks in capacity (500), it makes up for with atmosphere.

Virtually a religious haven for any clubber in Scotland worth their salt, the family vibe is instated by long-standing resident nights like Sensu and Harri & Domenic's 21-year-old weekly, Subculture, while the intense energy levels are raised by the regular appearance of heavyweight underground guests such as Dixon, Motor City Drum Ensemble and Kerri Chandler.

First opened in the late '80s before temporary closing due to fire damage in '99, it's not afraid of branching out, launching Sub Hub pop-up parties across the party in April 2015 and its own mini-festival called Sub Club Soundsystem in May alongside a brand-new record label Nautilus Rising too.
