#10 Robert Johnson – Frankfurt, Germany

If you’re heading to Germany to get lost on dancefloors, Berlin’s the natural magnet. After all, it’s got Berghain, it’s got Tresor and it’s got many, many more special clubs too. Robert Johnson, however, holds its own. With a blues legend as its namesake, the club is located in Offenbach, just across the river from neighbouring Frankfurt, a perhaps incongruous location for what’s regarded one of the world’s greatest clubs.

With a truly mixed crowd of music heads who swear by it, Robert Johnson has one of the warmest, finely-tuned soundsystems around and a cast of regular DJs who know how to use it. The stripped-back LED lighting, minimal DJ booth with a rotary mixer and intimate dancefloor all add up to a streamlined space. For several years, the club released its own series of mix-CDs from distinguished guests like Prins Thomas, Roman Flugel and Ata, one of Robert Johnson’s founders. The run of mixes ended in 2011 with Dixon’s acclaimed Volume 8. The series might be done, but the real-life schedule is buzzing, with visits from Tobi Neumann, Shackleton, Tensnake, Gerd Janson, Sascha Dive and many more booked over summer.

#9 Club der Visionaire – Berlin, Germany

Berliners, as we know, are spoiled for choice. It’s a city where winters have their own special rhythm, as locals escape the cold by packing onto dancefloors. When summer comes, though, Berlin embraces it. One of the best places to soak up the sun to a perfectly Germanic soundtrack, Club der Visionaere is a rustic shack on the canal in Kreuzberg.

With its tiny dancefloor, this isn’t a heaving peaktime spot. People loll about on the outdoor deck and piece together the high-points from the weekend, while some of the city’s finest selectors dig for records.

“It is so laidback that time doesn’t seem to exist in this place,” Seth Troxler told DJ Mag a couple of years back. “The faces are friendly, the pizza is divine and the staff know my name. It’s a home from home and a little piece of heaven.”

#8 Papaya – Island of Pag, Croatia

We’ve harped on before about how Croatia is quickly establishing itself as Europe’s new partying mecca, and the country’s clubs are sure living up to that reputation. Papaya, situated the island of Pag’s Zcre beach, has long had a reputation as Croatia’s best club. So what’s the drawcard? On top of the Eastern Europe-standard cheap drinks and near-uniformly attractive punters, Papaya boasts a postcard-perfect setting – you just have to travel a bit to get there.

Zcre beach is only five minutes from the town of Novalja, but it’s 80 km to the bigger city of Zadar. In high season, accommodation in Novalja is best booked in advance, but you can take advantage of the nightly shuttle bus back to the centre of town when things wind up at around the 6am mark or (if you’re lucky) bunk with a local.

Then there’s the infamous Hideout pool parties. Free for Hideout Festival ticket holders, the Papaya-hosted daily pool parties run from 2-8pm, making them the perfect warm-up to the night’s activities. For 2013, the pool party line-ups boast the likes of Julio Bashmore, Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler and Chase & Status and go down from July 3-5: well worth planning your trip around.

#7 AgeHa – Tokyo, Japan

Womb is a Tokyo icon, and with good reason, but there’s another mega-club servicing Japan’s capital too. That cavernous space is AgeHa in Tokyo’s Bay Area Shin Kiba. Sure, you won’t find an intimate, exclusive experience, but you will get that famous Japanese attention to detail, from the décor to the sound-system.

Oh yes, the sound-system: designed by Jim Toth of Timbre Tech, who has been in the game since the early ‘80s, it’s a powerful rig. Away from the booming main room, there’s an outdoor poolside stage for those daytime parties and other spaces to get lost in. SonarSound, the travelling arm of Barcelona’s renowned festival, has chosen AgeHa, and its roster ranges from the Cocoon crew to top trance names. Spend a night here surrounded by up-for-it locals and you’ll stagger away pining for another round.

#6 Avalon – Los Angeles, USA

“This is just one of those epic venues,” Dirty South told inthemix when naming Avalon in Hollywood as his favourite room to play anywhere. “People are really up for having a crazy night and I really enjoy playing here. I get to play four to five hour sets and do pretty much whatever I feel like, and the crowd just goes for it the whole night.”

That all-night atmosphere is what sets Avalon apart in Los Angeles. Possessing a covetable 24-hour license in a town where parties can’t always go as long as the dancefloor wants, it’s L.A.’s superclub-of-choice. The building is unique, too: a Spanish colonial theatre that once hosted The Beatles. In the historic main room, with its soaring ceiling and ornate fit-out, the programming runs from techno to dubstep to anthemic house and trance on any given weekend. As Dirty South put it, the atmosphere of Avalon on a good night is undoubtedly epic.

#5 Sirena Club – São Paulo, Brazil

Here’s how Sydney-bred high-flyer Goodwill, a regular drawcard in South America, sold Sirena Club to inthemix. “This is a pretty famous club but I don’t think you get a picture of how magical it is until you visit. It is amazing that this club attracts 3000-plus people a night, as it is a four-hour-long drive from Sao Paulo to the north coast beach town of Maresias, São Sebastião.

“Guests last summer included Loco Dice, Tocadisco, Carl Cox, Kaskade, Axwell and myself,” Goodwill went on. “Guest DJs play in the main room and are then invited to play sunrise on the amazing outdoor terrace that looks a lot like Jurassic Park. Playing outdoors with the beach on one side and the jungle on the other is incredible. It is hard to describe how magical the place is. You can play very deep and the crowd just love it. They renovate the club every year to keep it fresh and after 15 years it is still one of the most popular clubs in South America.”

#4 Sub Club – Glasgow, Scotland

“No two nights are ever the same,” Sub Club’s long-standing resident Harri told inthemix, and it’s a philosophy that carries through to his spiritual home at 22 Jamaica St, Glasgow. Sub Club is, in a word, legendary. Born way back in 1987, it was home to the game-changing Optimo residency and has invited a comprehensive list of house and techno to get deep and/or dark over its lifespan.

Dimly-lit and powerfully-equipped with an immersive soundsystem, the underground room invites you to get lost for hours, surrounded on all sides by bodies locked in a groove. Oh, and there’s a Body Sonic dancefloor to get you further inside the music. An enduring fixture is the Subculture night led by resident tastemakers Harri and Domenic, two DJs with very deep record bags. Sub Club favours selectors who love to go long, and they all can’t wait to get back.

#3 Fabrik – Madrid, Spain

If you only like clubbing in close quarters, Fabrik isn’t the destination for you. The enormous hangar on the outskirts of Madrid is built for 10,000-strong crowds. It’s a superclub in every sense, from its dimensions to the sound, the industrial-strength CO2 cannons, oversized disco balls and theatrical performances.

A space this cavernous needs a certain kind of DJ, and Fabrik has recruited some big-room specialists to help celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2013. Carl Cox and Sven Vath will take care of the booming techno, while on a different tip there’s Axwell coming up. Subtlety is the last thing you’ll find at Fabrik, but for all-night, super-sized raving, it’s got it down.

#2 ARMA17 – Moscow, Russia

Once you’ve ticked off European clubbing hubs like Ibiza and Berlin, you might start searching further afield. Journey to Russia’s capital and you’ll find ARMA17. The renowned club pulls in Moscow’s dressy, head-turning party people by booking the best in house and techno.

Guests like Richie Hawtin, Ricardo Villalobos, Magda, Marcel Dettmann, Guy Gerber and Ame swear by ARMA17, and the dancefloor stays rammed until well past sunrise. ARMA17 takes its name from the number of the industrial building where the first parties were held. The venue was housed in a former gas-holding facility in the historic part of Moscow, but a fire gutted it in 2009. Now the club has taken over another derelict industrial site at Nizhniy Susalniy. The ARMA17 team describes its after-hour marathons as “endless”. If you can’t get to Russia in the foreseeable future, it’s worth following ARMA17’s podcast series on Soundcloud, featuring k!ller mixes from names like Vakula, Radio Slave and Roman Flugel.

#1 Warung Beach Club – Itajai, Brazil

It’s not hard to see why Warung Beach Club has earned a near-mythical reputation. Perched at the edge of the jungle on the South American coast, few clubs can rival its setting. Then there’s the famous Brazilian party spirit that keeps the dancefloor vibing past sunrise. Expect that to be a very good-looking dancefloor, too.

With an outdoor deck at one end and the DJ booth at the other, the long tepee-like main room creates a heightened atmosphere. The programming leans towards hypnotic techno and house, with guests like Jamie Jones, John Digweed, Gui Boratto and Magda. It’s a space that brings the best out in DJs. As Sasha puts it: “It’s definitely one of my favourite places to play in the world. When you see the sun rising in the triangle at the end of the club, it’s a special time.” Then there’s the Garden area, where masters of deepness like Dixon or Lee Burridge can do their thing in the open air. It’s not the easiest club to get to, but your journey will be rewarded.

Avalon really depends on the DJ, any spot for that matter has to rely on the DJ.

Been to Avalon once and that was just to see Carl Cox again.

yeah i was like :ohhellnonas: when i saw that too because Avalon is kinda ehhhh

those European spots, however, seem worth the trip

and like dude above me mentioned, its all about the DJs at this point. you go where they go. back in the days in NY, you went to spots based on their name alone (Tunnel, Limelight, Carbon)
