The king of London's after-hours scene, Fabric is a huge subterranean rave cave housed in a converted meat cold store. Each room has its own sound system, which you'll really feel in Room One – it has a 'bodysonic' vibrating dance floor that's attached to 450 bass shakers, which emit low-end frequencies, so the music radiates into your muscles just by standing there.

Following a temporary closure in 2016 because of drug-related deaths in the club, Fabric operates a very strict door policy (you must be aged over 19 and have a formal ID) and a zero-tolerance policy towards drug use. Searches are thorough.

Annoyingly, there's a £15 minimum if you're paying for drinks by card. Bring cash.
