London’s eclectic music scene means that clubbers are never short of great nights out in the city – especially if you’re a drum and bass fan. Top clubs in the city regularly host nights dedicated to drum and bass and the varied line-ups keep Londoners on their toes. Here are some of the best nights for drum and bass in the city.

Scala hosts weekend club nights with a vast selection of events, including regular drum and bass nights. This large-scale multi-purpose venue stretches across four floors and is located in the regenerated Kings Cross area. The famous central London venue also hosts live music nights on weekdays and boasts incredible bookings from some of London’s very best emerging musical talent.

Vauxhall is well known for its vibrant nightlife and Lightbox is a popular spot for drum and bass fans looking to party. The name of the popular venue comes from the LED lights built into the walls and ceiling of the main room. These whacky light shows keep guests entertained for hours and heighten the experience for clubbers. Lightbox offers a variety of drum and bass nights with midweek after-hour parties as well as regular weekend club nights. It’s no surprise the venue is a hit with Londoners.


Nightclub, Pub Grub

Powerhouse Shoreditch club XOYO offers a variety of drum and bass nights every month such as ‘Crucast’ which features top DJs including Skepsis, Darkzy, Notion, Mr Virgo and Bru -C. Spread across two floors with a generous backyard area, XOYO’s large venue provides lots of space for dancing to some of the best drum and bass artists around. Located less than a minute away from Old Street station, this popular clubbing venue earns its place as one of the best clubs in East London with its killer lineups and welcoming atmosphere.

Electric Brixton

Music Venue

Brixton’s diverse drum and bass scene is a big hit with fans. Popular clubs such as Electric Brixton offer a wide-range of nights to keep clubbers coming back to the area week after week for more action. Electric Brixton hosts nights such as ‘Metalheads’ and books in top international DJs including the likes of DJ Marky. If you’re a devoted drum and bass fan, Electric Brixton provides weekly club nights and outstanding DJ sets to satisfy your urge to party.

Phonox joined Brixton’s famous clubbing scene in September 2015 and since then has cemented itself as a go-to venue with South London clubbers. The popular spot hosts regular drum and bass nights including ‘Shogun Audio’, an event featuring both rising stars and seasoned DJs for a showstopper night. If you’re intending to visit Phonox for a Friday night session you can expect an amazing sound system, a large dancefloor, and clubbers with a like-minded, community spirit and a passion for great music.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
