Poll 2024: Play House
Play House

Location: Chengdu, China 

Capacity: 1,000 

Chengdu’s PLAY HOUSE — the third of three PLAY HOUSE nightclub venues in China — makes a strong showing in the DJ Mag Top 100 Clubs poll for the fourth year running. Following their relocation in 2022 to an opulent former theatre building, PLAY HOUSE Chengdu is a huge venue that comes in at 7,500 square metres, and is an imposing 30 metres high inside. It’s split into three main spaces that include substantial breakout VIP lounges, and it also has a recording studio attached.

The club is fitted with a super-clean L-Acoustics pro audio sound system and features jaw-dropping immersive audio/visual sync tech throughout, making it ideal not only for regular club nights, but also extravagant events like their Mid-Autumn Festival, which showcases new electronic music. PLAY HOUSE Chengdu uses its cavernous space and impressive production stages to great effect, specialising in no-holds-barred, high-production nights soundtracked by the big room sounds of EDM, electro house and trance, and in 2023 the club hosted appearances from DJ talent including Steve Aoki, Armin van Buuren, KSHMR, Zabo, MORTEN, Mike Williams and Alchimyst, supported by their resident DJ, Miss Ann.
