Occupying former theatres, railway arches, factories and warehouses, many of London's major clubs started out as illegal party venues, and Londoners are used to descending into the ancient heart of their city for a big night out. There's indie, rock, pop and world music in the mix, but it's all-night dance raves on the weekend that are the lifeblood of these huge spaces.

 
 

Fabric

Head to world-famous Fabric for some serious dancefloor hedonism

77a Charterhouse Street, Clerkenwell, London, EC1M 3HN

Tube: Farringdon Station, Barbican Station

 
 

Built on the site of a Victorian meat cellar, Fabric continues to boast some of the most sensational line-ups in the capital. Its global reputation is founded on diversity and willingness to showcase new talent alongside its brilliant residents, planning its nights around great music, rather than flying in superstar DJs. Feel the bass bleed through the speakers buried in the floor and recline in style on the famous bed seats at one of their top regular nights. FabricLive on Fridays is regularly rammed and draws some of the biggest names in breakbeat, drum'n' bass, indie and electro. Saturday nights showcase underground talent, internationally respected masters of electronic music and established live acts, while Sunday nights (and Monday mornings) give partygoers a chance to indulge in some serious dancefloor hedonism with the Wetyourself crew. Because it's such a famous brand, Fabric gets horribly crowded sometimes, but the best acts usually don't come on until 3am, when the tourists have gone and the hardcore clubbers have space to party.

 
 
 

KOKO

Former theatre KOKO is the life and soul in Camden Town

1A Camden High Street, Camden Town, London, NW1 7JE

Tube: Mornington Crescent Station, Camden Town Station, Camden Town Station

 
 

KoKo offers a great mixture of live bands and club nights that have put it at the heart of the Camden nightlife. The huge stage, broad balconies and plush upstairs bars are a reminder of its former role as the Camden Theatre (which originally opened its doors in 1900), and the deep red colour scheme, chandeliers and gilt molding give it a decadent air that matches the rock stars who grace the stage. It has an illustrious rock 'n' roll history, having hosted The Clash and the Sex Pistols in the 1970s, and The Eurythmics, Madness and Madonna in the 1980s. It became a much-loved scuzzy rock club in the 1990s, before being restored and reopened in 2004.

Studio 338

London's biggest club brings Ibiza-style partying to the capital.

338 Boord Street, Greenwich, London, SE10 0PF

Tube: North Greenwich Station

 
 

Following a major refurbishment, Studio 338 reopened in spectacular style in March 2014, with Mark 'MK' Kinchen, Kevin Saunderson and Kate Simko all on the line-up. With a capacity of 3,000, the vast dance venue is London's biggest nightclub and aims to bring Ibiza-style clubbing to the capital. Equipped with state-of-the-art visual technology and a VOID sound system, it's ideal for major electro and techno nights, and it also doubles as an event space. Located in Greenwich it isn't exactly in the city's clubbing hotspots but with an all-night outdoor terrace that has hot air pumped into it you can always pretend you're off on your holidays.

Cable

Head to Cable for beats loud enough to shake London Bridge

33A Bermondsey Street, Bankside, London, SE1 2EG

Tube: London Bridge Station

 
 

Since the closure of clubland stalwarts The Cross, The Key, Canvas, Turnmills and The End, pessimists began to see London's glass as well and truly half empty. But the recent influx of clubs popping up south of the river - and in particular, like Cable, underneath the arches near London Bridge - shows that the glass is clearly more than half full, as a new generation of nightspots rises from the ashes. Located in the Bermondsey Street tunnel nearby London Bridge tube, the 1000-capacity Cable is spread over three archways (each with its own bar) and two dance floors (with a bespoke soundsystem by European sound specialists Nova). Just short of a full 24-hour licence, the club opens until 6am on Fridays and Saturdays and has grown both in popularity and size since opening its doors back in 2009. 2012 saw the unveiling of the mysterious third room - a sister club named Relay - which comes complete with its own independent line-up of live music, comedy and clubnights.

 
 
 

Proud Camden

Proud Camden is one of London's most unique clubbing destinations

The Horse Hospital, Stables Market, Chalk Farm Road, Camden Town, London, NW1 8AH

Tube: Chalk Farm Station

 
 

Not the easiest of places to find yet Camden Proud has easily found a place in the hearts of many. This art gallery by day becomes a superb venue for live music and parties at night, attracting up-and-coming eclectic acts as well as established stars such as Peter Doherty, Dizzee Rascal and Amy Winehouse. Located in Camden Stables Market along a cobbled back street, the painstakingly restored venue is spread between a large main room (with huge wooden beams propping up a high ceiling), the quirky stables of the 200-year-old Grade II listed horse hospital and a spacious terrace area with seating and winter-time heating. Individual horse compartments make for an amusing setting to drink and be merry, and can also be hired out for private events. Anyone who fails to be won over by the charm and uniqueness of Proud Camden must have got up on the wrong side of bed. This is a splendid, different and exciting venue with friendly staff, a trendy crowd and enough going on to keep you entertained and coming back for more. If you have yet to visit, we suggest you rectify that as soon as possible.

Proud2

Big, shiny and Proud, this O2 based club really packs a punch

The O2 Arena Peninsula Square, Greenwich, London, SE10 0DX

Tube: North Greenwich Station

 
 

In the sad shell of the Millennium Dome, a superclub was born, going by the name of Proud2. Sporting one of the world’s most powerful audio sound systems, heaps of high tech art lighting and a Body Sonic dance floor (meaning that the floor moves with the music). This ambitious project was the brainchild of the nightlife masters who brought us Proud Camden; they took over the 2,600 capacity Matter club space, drenched it in decadent gilded glam, smothered it in chandeliers, soaked the walls in art deco and flung open their doors to throngs of eager partygoers. Proud2 is more akin with the type of clubs you might find in the Balearic Islands and, in hopeful anticipation of steamy summer weather, it is also the proud owner of London’s largest smoking area, which comes complete with its own bars, food vans, heated beds and state of the art parasols. Proud2 comes with all the superclub trimmings; a sterling lineup of world class music and wallet-draining prices to match.

 
 
 

Corsica Studios

Creative arts venue and much-loved underground clubbing destination

Unit 5 Farrell Court, 4-5 Elephant Road, Elephant and Castle, London, SE17 1LB

Tube: Elephant & Castle Station

 
 

A superbly designed two-room club and arts venue that captures the feeling of an illegal party in a squatted industrial space - while still being clean, well-organised and close to central London. There's absolutely no passing trade here (it's pretty hard to find, in fact), so if you want to be sure of a night where everyone is there for the music, this is the place to go. Corsica Studios is home to many of London's oddest and most daring clubbing experiences, with a consistent focus on the cutting edge of electronic and indie experimentation, all played out on two Funktion 1 sound-systems. The opposite of the polished superclub experience available across the road at Ministry of Sound.

Egg

Head-scrambling dance music at 24-hour party palace, Egg.

200 York Way, King's Cross, London, N7 9AP

Tube: Caledonian Road Station

 
 

The fabulous Egg nightclub was well prepared for the smoking ban, with a fantastic garden and terrace which make it one of London's finest summer clubbing spots. Egg is spread out over three floors and each one has its own distinct look and feel. The ground floor has an industrial look while the loftbar area is much sleeker. Well-programmed nights of house, electro and dirty beats (plus the ever-tempting draw of a 24 license) attract a wild polysexual crowd. It's at its most hedonistic for the Sunday morning after-party Breakfast at Egg, when North London's wildest clubbers converge to watch the sun rise and keep the rave alive.

Ministry of Sound

World famous Ministry of Sound is a clubland institution.

103 Gaunt Street, Elephant and Castle, London, SE1 6DP

Tube: Elephant & Castle Station

 
 

A massive sound system, huge dancefloor and a staggering roster of big name DJs has made sure of Ministry of Sound's place in clubbing folklore. The opening night back in 1991 heralded the explosion of superclubs across the UK. Boasting a crisp, clear, thumpingly loud sound system, and some of the best house DJs of the era, the club attracted thousands of hedonists south of the Thames every weekend. This giddy ascendancy was subsequently translated into various record labels, a clothing company and sister clubs across the globe. Of course, success on such a scale never lasts, least of all in clubland, and the buzz around the venue had stagnated by the late '90s. Thankfully the last few years have seen the brains behind the operation quit resting on their laurels and sort it out. A welcome refurbishment of the interior and a creative injection into the DJ line-up means that Ministry is still well worth a look.
