Poll 2023: Warp Shinjuku
WARP Shinjuku

Location: Tokyo, Japan

Capacity: 1,000

WARP unveiled a significant redesign and expansion in 2022, with an entire fourth floor added — complete with dancefloor and bar area — to what was already a generously appointed nightlife destination. Expansive but relatively intimate by design, the result is a club that has plenty of areas to lose yourself in, adding to the reasons why so many continue to return week-in, week-out.

The roster of residents also has much to answer for, with Swagger, Max, Rhy, Claw, Akira, and Tomopiro calling this place home for 2023. Making the most of first-rate sound and exceptional lighting, including the amazing circular-truss visual rig that lends the Universe room its unique identity (known as the ‘Solar System’ for good reason), weekly and monthly events run the gamut from tech-house to trance and psy, bounce to hip-hop, and bass to R&B. Meanwhile, special dates — including major international tours — also feature on the calendar.
