The prestigious British magazine once again publishes its top 100 clubs with a great national presence, Hï Ibiza at number #1, FABRIK which rises five places and OPIUM Barcelona as the best club in the Catalan city

The leading magazine when it comes to classifying artists and clubs published this Tuesday, April 23, the annual list of the 100 best venues in the world, reaching record figures in terms of number of votes in relation to other editions. The repertoire represents the opinions of clubbers from 229 countries, with physical representation of 40 of them, with the United States, Spain, the United Kingdom, Brazil and Croatia being the most dominant. Of those named above, the Spanish country is the only one that does not decrease in terms of number of representatives, and Europe is the continent that has the most. There have been a total of 16 new entries, and the biggest increase has been Surreal Park, a Brazilian club that has climbed 48 places. Other interesting promotions have been those of fabric (10 position scale), or Ministry Of Sound (up 12 positions).

Hï Ibiza leads the table. The Ibizan nightclub achieves this for the third consecutive year after opening in 2017. At this point, the entire repertoire of superlative qualifiers has already been used to define the nightclub, but perhaps its variety and design of rooms (The Theatre, Club Room and The Wild Corner, added to The Magic Garden and The Secret Garden, its 2 terraces), its visual, sound and light resources or the massive congregation of stars on its posters give some clue to the magnitude of this place. 2024 will be its longest season to date, hosting residencies from Eric Prydz (CELL), The Martinez Brothers, FISHER, Afterlife, David Guetta & Morten (Future Rave), Black Coffee and Glitterbox.

The silver medal goes to him Green Valley, nightclub located in Camboriú, Brazil. Since 2011, their lowest position in the ranking has been number 3. After being practically destroyed by a cyclone during the pandemic, they have been able to rebuild and recover. Its story is peculiar. In 2007, a group of music lovers hired Carl Cox to perform a set in a tent in the middle of an old airfield. After the total success of the event, they repeated the modus operandi with other high-caliber artists and focused on refurbishing the place, making it permanent and constantly renovating it.

In third place is Echostage. Headquartered in Washington DC (United States), the nearly 3,000 m facility2 It houses curiosities such as organizing its own project, called GLOW Festival, held every year in the month of April, or themed events on Halloween.

The Spanish representation on the list is clearly led by the Ibizan island, whose clubs Hï Ibiza (1), Ushuaïa Ibiza (4), Amnesia (8), Pacha (20), DC-10 (26), and Eden (69) They are common in classification.


After his positionº2 in 2011 and 17 years in the top 50 best venues of this magazine, FABRIK experiences a rise of 5 positions to climb to 17th, chaining 4 consecutive years of improvement in the classification and establishing itself as the best club in the iberian peninsula. As some of its workers say, Fabrik is not a room, it is a festival every weekend.

Opium Barcelona debuts on the list with a direct entry to position 54, consolidating itself as the leader of nightlife in Barcelona. Throughout its 17 years of history and in its 4 venues it has hosted big names on the music scene, both in unique events and within its own festival, Wedjs, who will have in this year’s edition (its 13th) artists such as Sam Feldt, Bassjackers, Bob Sinclair R3hab or Alok, among others. The other presences in Barcelona are Nitsa Club, which occupies position 58, and Razzmatazz, in position number 74.
