London is known as one of the largest and oldest capitals in
The list of the most popular nightclubs in London consists of Mass Club, Pacha, Ministry of Sound, Turnmills, The End, Aquarium, Fabric, 606 Club, The Social, and Caf? de Paris. Mass club is in the list of 10 most popular nightclubs.
There is one thing about Mass Club London that makes it absolutely different from the rest clubs. You will hardly find another nightclub that is located in the former church. Yes, you have not misunderstood the previous sentence. Mass Club may be found at St Matthew's Church, Brixton Hill.
St. Matthews was originally used for religious purposes only - baptism actually took place in the middle of what is now the main dance floor, and famously, John Major was married to Norma on the building's front steps!
During the 1980's the building was converted for broader use, incorporating a large ?in the round? theatre, conference rooms, offices and it's crypt into a bar. In the early 90's club events started appearing the conference room and crypt, and it wasn't long before a further redevelopment took place. The crypt became the Bug Bar, and the conference room and theatre became what is now Mass Club.
Mass is probably London's most atmospheric club, full of winding stone steps, and featuring a huge church window over the larger of the two dance floors. It hosts a wild selection of weekend clubs, and occasional live bands and other events. Nights to check out include the famous Funkt (house and breakbeats); Movement (drum and bass, hip hop and R&B); Tsunami (hard house and trance) and the infamous Torture Garden - a full-on fetish night featuring body art, fashion shows and a roulette casino to the accompaniment of exotica, sleazy R&B, nu skool and drum and bass. Pure sacrilege!
I would say that it is very convenient that Mass Club is located in one building with the Bug Bar and Bah Humbug. If you are get tired of loud music and crowd of people or if you find Mass Club not your place you may leave the club and go to the Bug Bar or Bah Humbug.
Part of the old church complex, the Bug Bar has tried to create the feel of a private members club. The vaulted space is full of low velvet sofas and heavy oak coffee tables and you can walk through a door to the adjoining Bah Humbug restaurant for a tasty meal. The Bug Bar is the archetypal sweaty basement club at weekends and the hip-hop flavoured club nights attract people from all over London. Entry charges depend on what night and what time you go.
It was a very good idea to combine in one complex three different places of entertainment. Probably, someone will say that it was not a very good idea to use old church complex for this purpose.
