London nightlife may have taken a hit with Fabric’s closure, but after-hours clubbing in London does still exist – here are 8 dance music clubs that celebrate electronic music and warehouse party raving
XOYO’s residents, including Heidi, Scuba and Oneman, are each invited to play alongside their own handpicked guests over a period of several weeks. The resulting line ups cannot be beaten.
An on point sound system, some lasers and a smoke machine is all that’s needed to turn this Dalston basement into a den of iniquity every weekend. It’s dark, intense, and unbeatable on a good night.
Down by the railway arches in Elephant and Castle, Corsica Studios manages to maintain a strictly underground feeling with world class DJs at the helm. One of London’s finest large venues.
It took an online campaign to save this bastion of Peckham nightlife from the developers, but it survives, delivering progressive dance music to the London youth every weekend.
Old school warehouse vibes down in Hackney Wick. Watching the sun come up over the Olympic Stadium surrounded by people with their arms in the air is something everyone should experience.
Where the club and fashion worlds meet, this dingy Dalston basement has become one of London’s most creative clubbing spaces. Nowhere else combines grime and glamour quite so well.
Another much loved Peckham mainstay currently under threat, Canavans Pool Club is perhaps most renowned for its Rhythm Section nights, a magnet for respected DJs and the area’s young creative community in recent years.
With a mixed crowd of gay, straight and in-between, its mirrored basement has come to epitomise the sweaty hedonism which gave the area its reputation for nightlife. House and disco played the way it should be.
