Best Nightclubs in London

One of the best series prepared by the editors of Techno Airlines, the best techno clubs. Today we are guested in London.

In this special series, the first class of nightclubs in region and city of London will be examined in terms of atmosphere, residents, facilities, transportation and even price performance.

London’s vivid techno scene is a must-see thing to be, with new nights springing up every week, there’s always something different to try at the weekend. If you’re looking for a warehouse party or a more intimate boiler room-style event, here are some of the best nights and clubs for techno music in the city.


Located between the railway arches, Elephant and Castle’s well-loved Corsica Studios is quite literally the definition of “underground techno.” Corsica Studios is exactly the kind of place you want to listen to techno in: dark, stripped back and immediate. Its capacity of 500 means its the ideal place to get beneath the skin of techno’s up-and-comers, as well as catching rare, personal sets from some of the scene’s biggest names.

The late-night music venue is reminiscent of Berlin techno nightclubs Tresor and Club der Visionäre. Corsica Studios books top DJs from around the world and makes it the perfect spot for a late-night session. Corsica Studios is every techno-lover’s dream, with a heavy-duty sound system and creative video installations and projections to enhance the experience.


XOYO has been drawing in a discerning, party-ready crowd since the turn of the decade. You can rely on it for a eclectic selection of sounds, throwing out everything from grime to house to electro, but it’s the groove-laden techno that warrants it a place on our list.  The subterranean main room is where it all goes off, but it’s always worth wandering upstairs to check out the smaller second space to find a hidden gem.

 Xoyo Club is an old night club which has been refurbished to create this highly aesthetic, artsy night club. This night club has won awards for being one of the top nightclubs in the world, so you can guess the immense popularity of the venue! The night club is spread over two floors, the main underground room and a smaller space upstairs known as the Green Room.


Phonox is already one of its best. It does the basics and it does them well: a Funktion One soundsystem, a penchant for extended sets and only one room open on Fridays. But its with its roster of DJs that things become really interesting. The focus is predominantly on house, but there’s also a healthy dollop of techno on its lineup. Phonox should be a club for the heads who like their music wide-reaching, often boasting sets from staunchly experimental.

They have stuck to the basics and perfected them. The best sound system in the business. The DJs are known for playing extended sets of Techno music. They also focus on House music which is the second choice for techno lovers.


Undoubtedly the best known club in London and an ever-reliable port of call for some ribcage-rattling techno. In fact, it’s good for just about any type of electronic music you want to spend the night dancing to. The soundsystems are world-beating and it’s easy to get lost within the humongous space for what feels like days, especially as the DJ sets have a tendency to run throughout the night and then well past sunrise.

As one of the capital’s biggest and most ambitious party spots, Fabric is a no-brainer for a heavy night on the tiles. As well as playing host to a whole range of techno-loving resident DJs, the Farringdon club also welcomes in industry legends from around the world.


Low ceilings, dark rooms, loud systems, large smoking area and a legendary Sunday party all contribute towards making FOLD the best underground spot in London, if not the whole of the UK. Usually a place to get your Techno fix, you will also find heaps of electro, trance and more at this incredible space, which also does an incredible job of providing a safe space for its predominantly queer community. This venue is one of the favourites for tutors and you can see many of them performing at this venue.

Unlike any other clubs in London (that I know), FOLD has a 24-hour license to play music, thanks to the building’s sound-proofing, meaning that this club can host events that start in the evening and that can go on until late the next afternoon. This venue has an insane sound system, and they are not scared to use it, so don’t forget to grab a pair of earplugs at the bar if you don’t want tinnitus.
