Still one of the biggest, and definitely one of the best, club venues in London, you'll find established resident DJs (Craig Richards, Terry Francis) and world-class guests, including Sasha, John Digweed, and the Chemical Brothers. But there's enough fresh talent to keep this venue at the cutting edge of new sounds. Built on the site of a Victorian meat cellar, and opened in 1999, it retains an underground feel with exposed brickwork and arched ceilings. Three rooms of varying sizes—24,000 square feet in all—offer different vibes; the Bodysonic dance floor in one is directly connected to the bass frequencies, so you feel the reverb through your feet. Small bars are dotted throughout, and there are plenty of nooks and crannies to rest up, including the all-too-comfy bed seats. On Fridays, there's a selection of drum 'n' bass, hip-hop, and breakbeat, while Saturdays concentrate on house. Fabric also hosts the polysexual DTPM every Sunday.

Friday 9:30 p.m. to 5 a.m., Saturday 10 p.m. to 7 a.m., Sundays 11 p.m. until the party dies down; closed Monday through Thursday.
