It's barely been open two years but already Beijing club giant One Third hits the Top 100 for the second time. It’s not hard to see why; an industrial strength multi-floored rave den deep in the Gongti district, One Third is an extraordinarily high-tech maze with complex lighting installations and immense LEDs.

A total feast for the senses, it comes from good pedigree as it’s owned by the team responsible for Beijing’s famous Sir Teen club and was built by massive Dutch production company Live Legends. In fact One Third hasn’t been short of legends full stop. Rolling through the club’s impressive sliding metal door during 2019 were guests such as Martin Garrix, Rezz, Slushii, R3HAB, Fedde Le Grand and Yellow Claw.

But the international line-up is only one-third of the One Third story; the venue’s most regular nights are special themed events and their own ADM (Asian Dance Music) Festival. Now five editions deep, it’s created a focal point for homegrown talent to inspire each other and thrive. Only two years into its story, there’s already a whole lotta love for One Third.

Behind its stark, industrial factory entrance, hidden by a huge sliding metal door, Beijing's One Third has quickly found itself at the epicentre of one of the fastest growing nighttime economies on the planet. Having only opened its doors in November 2017, its achieved such notoriety in such a short space of time that it already commands genuinely A-list DJ talent. This year alone, it has welcomed Martin Garrix, Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, The Chainsmokers, Deadmau5, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Afrojack, Nicky Romero and Zedd to the controls.

But it's not beholden to international talent alone. One Third has hosted its own indoor festival, Made In China, showcasing an exclusively Chinese line-up of DJs. And in a move that clubbing brands the world over could do well to take notice of, it held another festival event this year dedicated to only female DJs, headlined by DJ Mag Top 100 jock and its very own resident, Mariana Bo. One Third is clearly blazing a trail in this emerging market, which, as little as five years ago, was barely a blip on the radar of world clubbing. Well, look at it now.
