Egg London’s ongoing renaissance has been reflected in another leapfrog in this poll. Since entering at 99 in 2014, the club’s rise has been largely down to a couple of clear-as-day reasons. Firstly, its increasingly strengthening booking policy is one of the most professional London — one of the world’s most competitive scenes — has to offer. The past 12 months have seen the venue entertain an extensive list of the globe’s most heavyweight underground talent. Pan-Pot, Sven Väth, Solomun and Chris Liebing are just a few names that sent Egg’s techno-obsessed mentalists off their nugget in 2016, while megastar names such as Pete Tong and Idris Elba rocked the Friday night masses to the rafters.
Secondly, the clubs constant transformation — from garden to warehouse and back again — alongside its quest for the perfect, most powerful custom-built soundsystem (Flipside) has also marked it out as one of the capital’s finest places to party.
Egg London also regularly serves as the London home for our DJ Mag Sessions parties and hosted our Best of British Awards party last December, where DJ EZ, Solardo and Alan Fitzpatrick all performed while the UK dance industry’s leading figures (Carl Cox, Norman Jay, Night Czar Amy Lamé et al.) rubbed shoulders. Not only is Egg London one of the world’s favourite clubs, it’s one of two.
