The Ministry of Sound
The legendary Ministry of Sound nightclub is perhaps London's finest super-club, and certainly its most famous. Having spawned a loyal following that takes in annual clubland CD albums, resident shows on Ibiza and other sun-soaked islands, and a massively popular weekend set every week of the year, Ministry of Sound is the clubbing connoisseur's choice.
Home to the beautiful people, the cool people and the fun-loving people, urban legend has it that the famous sound system at Ministry of Sound is only ever played at 45% its true capacity, for a 100% output would be the loudest manmade sound ever, and would certainly burst a few ear drums! As it is, Ministry of Sound leaves a pleasant ringing in the ears – it is the sound of 5,000 people having the night of their lives, soundtracked by the freshest dance and trance tunes to hit the airwaves. Each and every summer's signature dance hit is nearly always premiered at Ministry of Sound.
Despite the expense, tight security and queues at every bar, a night at Ministry of Sound is perennially memorable, thanks largely to the intangible sense of occasion that seems to descend every weekend. You really feel like you are part of something special every night, such is the exclusivity of the djs (think Pete Tong and Paul Oakenfold), the strictness of the VIP areas and the dazzling array of drinks on offer. Chic, sleek, stylish and ultra-cool, Ministry of Sound is an unrivalled night out, and one that is sure to stick long in the memory.
