04.03.2019

The Old Continent, Europe, a mix of culture and languages, which historically jammed in at time less orthodox ways; from the Northern and Icelandic blissful landscapes, to the organised chaos of central London; from the luxury of the Amalfi Coast to the wilderness of Portugal’s coast; there’s one way to experience all of these in one place, and that’s with Europe’s best music. For their stunning architecture, the range of DJs and events they attract and for putting up the best parties, here are the best clubs in Europe you should ping on your map.

Printworks, London

An industrial space that become one of the landmarks in the cultural scene in London and in the UK; the narrow main floor used to once be the biggest print facility in Europe and the whole venue reflects its industrial heritage with original mechanical equipment placed across the six floors. With 125 artists and 25 shows taking place only between September 2018 and January 2019, the Printworks is where to go clubbing in Europe especially for those electronic music addicts who are looking to see their favourite artists live.

Apollo Milano

Apollo is the God of Music and just for this reason the Milanese club has a set for itself a bit challenge; founded by Tiberio Carcano and Marcellina Di Chio, who already one of the best nightlife parties in Milan called Rollover, it has everything and more you need to enjoy Milano by night. Away from pretentious decor, it hosts a cocktail bar, a restaurant and the quirky dancefloor which seems carved out of a living room with a retro vibe. If you wish to party, Apollo Milano is a good alternative to the big gigs at Magazzini Generali, which is one  of the best clubs in Europe for its lineups.
