Poll Clubs 2020: Halcyon

Halcyon

Halcyon is something of a standalone in its native Californian scene: while most dance events are huge festival setups or giant club gatherings, this place deals in a more intimate party. The space was originally a warehouse, so retains some of that rawness and all the illicit feelings that come with it, but has been brought up to date as one of only a small handful of clubs in the world to have a Dolby Atmos system. They have also designed their own recyclable paperboard water box for the club, after seeing how many plastic bottles were piling up after each event. An “everyone’s equal” approach and 24-hour licence means parties can go long and DJs can really stretch their legs. Amelie Lens, Nina Kraviz, MK, Len Faki, J. Phlip and Charlotte de Witte have all played in the last year, and Halcyon regulars are such die-hards that you will often find them with the club's logo tattooed on their arm. It's a perfect embodiment of the close-knit, community feel the famously all-female team have strived to achieve. Add in an always adventurous and forward-looking booking policy, and you have all the things that continue to stand this club apart.

Halcyon celebrates three years as an all-female managed nightclub and only the third club in the world to install the renowned Dolby Atmos system, an immersive sound experience with Kerri Chandler as ambassador. The space’s brick-and-steel structure harks back to its beginnings as a warehouse, and Halcyon maintains the warehouse vibe of the early underground. With its 24-hour license, DJs can play extended sets way past the city’s curfew, at the same time maintaining a strong connection with the intimate crowd. A flagship Pioneer XY venue, in the past year Halcyon has hosted a range of talent from Black Coffee to Nicole Moudaber, Derrick Carter and Claude VonStroke.

Don’t let Halcyon’s small size fool you: This one-room outpost roars louder than most mega-clubs around. Opened in 2016, the venue boasts the perfect formula for late-night revelry: a powerful Pioneer XY soundsystem, advanced lighting and a 24-hour license. The team behind Halcyon goes the extra mile to create a unique experience week in and week out, including décor that alternates weekly and a rotating roster of world-class artists often new to the city. Past bookings include Adam Beyer, Carl Cox, Claude VonStroke, Nicole Moudaber and Skream. Halcyon also champions San Francisco’s burgeoning electronic scene, which has earned the club a strong local and international following.
