AS quintessential as the name suggests, Ministry Of Sound is arguably the most prominent clubbing brand on the planet – the centralized function of London club scene. It’s official. Conceived 20 years ago in the mould of NY’s Paradise Garage, MOS has remained the go-to place for those in London with a taste for ultimate clubbing professionalism.
With a soundsystem to rival them all, this clubbing complex is a space-age spaghetti junction of steely walkways that lead to box-shaped rooms crammed with bodies, swelling with sound. “It’s incredible,” gushes Benny Benassi. “When you go in, you have to walk through the crowd and you can feel the sweat. I always love to play at Ministry of Sound.”
Fresh from marking its 20th anniversary with an exhibition tracking the club’s history, Ministry looks forward to its birthday party in September. Aside from that, epic parties are still found here every weekend. We Love NYE brought SMD, Joris Voorn and James Zabiela, Boxing Day offered Laidback Luke and Michael Woods has just kicked off a residency.
