Poll 2024: Exchange LA
Exchange LA

Location: Los Angeles, CA, USA 

Capacity: 1,000 

With its art deco filigree, marble flourishes, seven bars, extravagant lighting system and 30-by-40-foot LED screen, Exchange LA — in a former life, the 1930s-era Los Angeles Stock Exchange — certainly looks the part of a Top 100 club. With its Funktion-One system, it sounds like one as well. But the proof of the pleasure palace’s status comes via those who have played there, thanks in large part to a longstanding partnership with Insomniac Events. With a slew of nights dedicated to specific genres (bass music, house, techno, hardstyle, reggaeton and more), that list takes in a wide swathe of artists, with names like The Martinez Brothers, Gorgon City, Armin van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Charlotte de Witte and Chase & Status just a few of those to have graced the Exchange decks in the past. The club is currently closed for renovations and improvements, with a redesign of the video and lighting layout in the works as well, ensuring artists of that calibre will continue to pack the kids into the downtown LA standby.
