Poll 2023: Soundcheck

Location: Washington, DC, USA 

Capacity: 500

Operated by Club Glow — the team behind D.C. superclub Echostage — what Soundcheck lacks in capacity, it more than makes up for in clubbing experience. Situated a stone’s throw from the White House, the venue offers the bottle-service experience one might expect from such an influential locale, but it’s not the main focus, with enough top-notch talent for dedicated dance heads to get stuck in. Generally catering for house, EDM, hip-hop and Latin music styles, recent headliners have included Shiba San, DJ SODA, Gorgon City, Shermanology and Nia Archives, while Bassrush host regular nights with artists from the heavier end of the dance music spectrum.
