Beachclub is not your usual nightclub. Situated on the sandy shores of Pointe-Calumet just a 45-minute drive from Montréal, the venue holds the title of the largest open-air club in North America. Opened in 1995, the venue reached worldwide stardom in 2015, when it hosted celebrity influencer Kylie Jenner’s 18th birthday party.

With a capacity of 10,000 people, Beachclub offers a festival-like experience from May to September, giving patrons a much-needed escape from the city in the summer. The superclub features two main areas: the main stage and a back terrace that offers a more relaxed experience. But that’s not nearly all, because punters can also hang out by the pool or try out different activities like yoga, paddle-boat hire and kayaking.

Last summer, the club’s bookings included dance music superstars like Tiësto, Martin Garrix, Slander, DJ Snake and Mark Knight, along with hip-hop A-listers like Flo Rida and reggaeton legend Daddy Yankee.

Poll Clubs 2017: WARUNG BEACH CLUB

Warung Beach Club DJ Mag Top 100 Clubs 2017
Warung Beach Club DJ Mag Top 100 Clubs 2017

In recent years the EDM wave has withdrawn slowly from Brazilian soil, as clubs struggled to sustain the extortionate fees demanded by Top 100 DJs in the face of economic constraints, revealing a strong local scene rife with house DJs. Turns out they preferred house music all along — hardly surprising when you consider it's the rhythm of samba — not the screech of EDM synths — that naturally pumps through the veins of its vibrant people.

While the biggest, most commercially facing set-ups in South America's super-nation, such as Green Valley and Anzu, are drawing upon Brazil's megastar names of accessible deep house/pop like Vintage Culture and Alok to bring in huge crowds, one club has been importing the crème de la crème of underground house and techno long before 120bpm four-fours were the sound du jour for this nation of obsessive clubbers. Since 2002 in fact.

Programmed by D-Edge owner and famed DJ, Renato Ratier, the likes of Dixon, The Martinez Brothers and Solomun are all regulars here, contributions to a music policy that's almost single-handedly cultivated the core essentials of any club scene worth its salt, all within a spectacular superclub setting.

Poll Clubs 2017: GUABA BEACH CLUB

Guaba Beach Bar

Guaba Beach Bar’s location in a holiday destination on the beautiful Mediterranean coast gives the venue a sense of unreality, as though a visit to Guaba is a chance to step outside of real life for an evening. It’s a 2,500-capacity venue so it’s superclub-sized, but with its open-air dance space and jungle-themed decor, it possesses a laid-back charm all of its own. Guaba actually began life as a beachside kiosk in 2006, but it has since grown into a substantial club venue with a growing international reputation and now features five bars and a VIP area in addition to the main dancefloor. The club is open seven nights a week during the summer season and the Guaba team tend to use the winter to annually revamp, constantly improving the venue to keep things fresh. In terms of programming, in 2019 Guaba Beach Bar booked DJs like Paul van Dyk, Boris Brejcha, Sasha and John Digweed, Hot Since 82 and Salvatore Ganacci to come and play on their belting K-LA210 Pro-Series soundsystem under the moonlight.

Guaba DJ Mag Top 100 Clubs 2017

Guaba Beach Bar may have begun life as “more of a hut than a venue”, but today it offers Cyprus’ foremost clubbing experience, bringing the likes of Top 100 DJs winner Martin Garrix, Dutch hand-putter-upper Fedde Le Grand and trance heavyweight Paul van Dyk to entertain 2,000-strong crowds on the sunny shores of the Mediterranean.

But what keeps Guaba so fresh year after year? Well, such as in Ibiza, the club is seasonal, and utilises the yearly refresh to make improvements and change the decorations. When the space relaunches on 30th April with its annual Opening Fiesta, it’ll be sporting some fancy new features. Along with a new DJ booth design, Guaba is currently installing a new, custom soundsystem and two new bars — one specialising in cocktails and one boasting a some playground-style swings to relax in.

It’s not just the club that get in the spirit either — having started as a “party among friends”, the ‘Guabians’ keep the community vibe, showing their loyalty at popular events such as the venue’s Birthday Party, Summer Carnival and Red Party, where you can find sea of scarlet clubbers! Fancy a change from the White Isle this summer? Cyprus is calling…

Montreal natives know how to party, and how to appreciate the fleeting months of warmth they experience every calendar year by taking advantage of their lakefront beaches. That’s where Beach Club Montreal comes in, a sprawling 5000 person outdoor venue that knows what les habitants want and need — and provides it, from May to September. Situated on the sandy shores of Pointe-Calumet, it possesses a distinctly Balearic vibe with its cabanas and casual, bikini-clad attendees. Fittingly, Beach Club’s Ibiza festival is a popular attraction.

The club’s 2016 season kicks off on May 22nd with trance man Andrew Rayel and Marlo at the helm, while the following weekend sees David Guetta’s Beach Club debut. DJ Mag’s 2015 Top 100 winners Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike hit the sand in June, and the following months will see the likes of Erick Morillo, Carnage and Armin Van Buuren. It seems there’s something for everyone’s ears at Beach Club; and if even if there isn’t, who can say no to a bottle of champagne on a sparkling Canadian beach?

Poll Clubs 2015: NOA BEACH CLUB CROATIA

It’s no secret that getting sweaty is an occupational hazard of any rave. But at Noa Beach Club you don’t need to worry about being sticky, a pool of cool watery respite is always close by; all you need to do is jump off the side!

Built from several interconnecting platforms bobbing in the sea, combining dancefloors, pools, bars and relaxing lounges, Noa is luxurious to the max with the opportunity to rent your own “private island” if you’d prefer not to mingle. When night falls, the partying at Noa goes into fifth gear, with holiday-makers migrating from the sun-soaked platforms to Noa club’s enormous floating arena. 

The music at Noa is exactly what you’d expect, with promoters trying to please a large cross section of holiday punters. There’s been everything from EDM’s biggest superstars (Nervo, R3hab, 2Elements, Kid Chris) to Cocoon’s Sven Väth on Noa’s bill, plus a bungy jumping tower for those feeling extra adventurous!
