Poll 2024: Ministry of Sound
Ministry Of Sound

Location: London, UK 

Capacity: 1,600

Now gearing up for its 33rd anniversary, London’s iconic Ministry of Sound (MoS) nightclub remains a place to be — one that persists in bending and tweaking, listening and learning from its followers and attendees. In the last 12 months, three of its four rooms have been given a big overhaul, with interiors stripped back to reveal the club’s original structure, DJ booths lowered to the ground, and a massive bar installed in The Loft. In short, the whole gaff has been re-engineered from a once bus garage to an impressive place that its dancers can always call home.

Sound design as ever takes its place at the forefront of what makes MoS tick, with MoS kitted out with a bass-enhanced Martin Audio system. Even the entrance tunnel has ambient music pumped through on your way in. New alliances have been formed with NTS, Deviation and La Fiesta, and this year the likes of Dimitri From Paris and Bob Sinclar join up-and-comers Ammara, DAIRE and Demi Riquísimo, along with mainstays and co-promoters Piano People, Jungle Mania, Future Disco, Backto95 and Melting Pot. And, interestingly, as well as launching a new website, MoS has commissioned its own fragrance courtesy of Parisian master perfumer, Mark Buxton. Very fancy indeed.
