London is dance club paradise. From gay nightclub Heaven to south London super-club Ministry of Sound, hedonists and dance lovers have more choices than the gods on a Saturday night. Fans of Ibiza relive wild holidays at Pacha in Victoria where house music dominates, and over in Clerkenwell, Fabric attracts everyone from students to city workers. With three floors and music from world-class DJs, this is a regular crowd-pleaser. Drag queens and glitter reign supreme at Heaven in Charing Cross, located in the shadow of the train station’s railway arches. If that is not your idea of a good time, then try the Ministry of Sound, where the rave goes on and on. Hundreds and thousands of clubbers flock here every year in search of beats from superstar DJs. Here are some of our favorite places to dance the night away. 

Pacha

In London on a Saturday night? Get down to Terminus Place in Victoria. Don’t be fooled by the wood paneling and period features of this historic building. Inside, Pacha nightclub hosts house music lovers and top DJs. For a taste of Ibiza in Blighty, this is the place to be. 

Heaven

Heaven claims to be the world’s most famous gay nightclub. Find out for yourself down under the Craven Street arches in Charing Cross. Rub shoulders with drag queens and shake your booty to electro-pop, house, and dance music. 

Fabric

Hidden in the heart of Farringdon opposite the historic Smithfield’s Meat Market, is “fabric.” In the dark depths of this world-class super club, hedonists will find what they’re looking for. With sets spinning everything from techno, disco, drum and bass, to electro and indie music, in demand DJs and live acts thrill the crowd every weekend. 

Ministry of Sound

For trance, house, and rave lovers, the iconic Ministry of Sound is the only dance club destination to visit in London. Join more than 300,000 club-goers who hit the dance floor here every year, and keep your eyes peeled—you might see David Guetta or Pete Tong on the decks.
