Linked to the discussions above about least-favourite London clubs (and after having possibly my best clubbing experience ever at Bassiani in Tbilisi last week): what are everyone’s favourite clubs?
I love The Night Kitchen in Sheffield - still going strong despite ‘closing’ last year, although don’t think it’ll be around too much longer sadly.
It may not have the best sound every time, but always enjoy nights there because it’s fairly intimate (roughly 500 cap I think), has super friendly staff , it usually attracts a fairly diverse crowd due to the strength of the bookings, plus the interesting venue (old cutlery factory on three levels) means there’s plenty of different places to explore & sit when you’re in need of a break from the main rooms. One of the few places I end up staying till the bitter end almost every time.
Bassiani was on another level and totally blew me away. Wish all large clubs could be like this - sound and lights were incredible in both rooms, although it was pretty much a sell out it never felt cramped, and the energy from the crowd was something I’ve never experienced before. Party was still going strong at 5.30am when we had to bail due to tiredness (apparently it finished just after 11). All the DJs looked like they were having the time of their life, never seen so many smiles from the booth. It helps that they have a stunning venue, we spent a good half hour wandering round at the start and finding all sorts of hidden corridors, dark rooms, balconies, etc.
