Proud isn’t your standard club, so this won’t be your standard Saturday. All you need to make a night of it here is to come with an open mind and a desire to dance long into the night. You can expect a line-up of live bands and DJs to take the stage throughout the evening, with the original stables bedecked with funky themes and a music policy of house, RnB and funk ruling supreme.
A two-tiered party hub in Shoreditch with a faded circus glamour theme, you can count on a great roster of DJs lining up to perform at Trapeze throughout the week. The real fun happens in the basement, where a string of the city’s best DJs and promoters take the decks playing real house and deep disco tracks ‘til late.
You can't really take a list of the best house music clubs in London seriously until it gives a shout out to this east London powerhouse. Situated right in the heart of Shoreditch, XOYO is a club with an unrivalled level of musical variety. Featuring live tunes throughout the week and top name DJs from the house, garage and electro music scene at the weekend, it's a must for any London clubbing enthusiast.
Hop off the train at Victoria and follow your house music instincts straight to Konnect, where a lively bunch party until sunrise across two unique club rooms. Known for attracting both the best in emerging and established DJ acts, expect a playlist of disco, tech house and deep house to come beaming out via the Martin Audio soundsystem here.
One of our favourite places for house music in Dalston, The Nest is a basement clubbing spot that brims with energy and feel-good vibes. Focused on progressive electronic music and always offering among the most exciting line-ups in the city, locals love The Nest for its combination of great music, state-of-the-art lighting, Martin Audio sounds and no frills partying.
Cargo has made a name for itself as another of the best clubs in London thanks to its top notch live bands and DJ sets. Come for a quiet drink or a bite to eat during day in their massive decked garden or hit the dance floor in the evening, where you'll be going big and hard into the night at this banging Shoreditch house music club.
There’s something reassuringly familiar about Phonox. Opening their doors to a community of like-minded clubbers every weekend, expect to dance to their trusted guest DJs on Friday before the hugely talented Jasper James residency gets into full flow every Saturday. There’s a no phone and camera policy - the dancefloor is for dancing, after all - and the music is always on point.
Try as you might to resist the lure of Old Queenie on the Essex Road, nights out in Angel often end up busting all kinds of outlandish shapes in this party-central boozer's first floor club room. They promise "cutting edge music and hedonistic debauchery" in spades, with an infectious mix of hip-hop, house, disco and party tunes ringing out and the crowds dancing on the sofas 'til the wee hours.
