Poll Clubs 2020: Goa Club

Goa Club

Created in a space that was originally an old mechanic’s workshop next to a food market, Goa’s attendees used to queue up alongside early morning delivery trucks. The 700-capacity venue has since undergone substantial renovation to reach its current pristine state and is fully kitted out with a handmade Audio Factory soundsystem, and a custom lighting design project by artist Diego Labonia. A DJ booth that is only a slight step up from the dancefloor and no backstage area completes what is a superbly intimate space, that over the last year has booked DJs including Nina Kraviz, Ricardo Villalobos, Moodymann, DJ Stingray, Maceo Plex and Ellen Allien.

Converted from an old mechanic’s workshop into a 700-capacity, future-focused cultural hub — hosting everything from art installations to theatrical performances and, of course, DJ sets from the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Moodymann, DJ Stingray, Cassy and Nina Kraviz — Rome’s Goa Club has been transformed this season into a ”true botanical garden”, as owner Giancarlino puts it. The inside has been redesigned by artist Capo Bianco in an effort to explore “how the physical space and the people who cross it influence each other”; which, paired with the handmade Audio Factory soundsystem and lack of backstage area, means everyone from DJ to raver is out on the dancefloor enjoying the vibe.

When it first opened, Rome’s Goa was in an old mechanic’s garage next to a food market, which meant clubbers queuing in the early hours while delivery vans dropped off the morning’s wares.

Since then, its renovated and embraced the multi-purpose design of many modern clubs, hosting art installations and theatrical performances alongside its underground house and techno parties. With an Audio Factory soundsystem kitting out the club’s main room, it would be easier to list who hasn’t played here in the last twelves months... Ricardo Villalobos, Moodymann, Marcel Dettmann, Dixon, DJ Stingray, Harvey and Kerri Chandler just a few of the top jocks who have.

With quality like this, it’s no wonder that famous Thursday night Goaultrabeat has been running since 1999.
