Went to see Marshmello last saturday with friends. My first visit so I thought it's gonna be nice. Omg such a bad expirience for the first time. Oversold tickets, too many people, in few times I couldn't breath. People jumped everywhere. Just too much. I enjoyed Marschmello but Im not sure if I wanna go back because if you oversell... More

We turned up early so we could experience the club while empty as well as full but all that happened was a Chinese Invasion. The bar staff were incredibly helpful and coat room staff were good enough. The bouncers were horrific. At one point a Chinese was punching a friend mine in the stomach. Absolutely ridiculous. Flake wasn't too bad... More

Went to see Markus Schultz open to close set and had an amazing time. Pretty much lost my hearing, but what a great experience. Even when that place was heaving the staff were unbelievable. I have no idea how they can have such great attitudes with so much constant chaos. At one point I had asked security if the gift... More

I have been visiting Ministry at least a few times a month since I moved to London in 2012. It's a perfect example of how a nightclub should be run. The Box hosts an incredible sound system and light show which never fails to impress. If you manage to catch a show in Dolby Atmos that's a bonus, a one... More

Ministry of Sound club is what I call my second home, I've made some amazing friends here and unforgettable memories. I would definitely recommend going on the Fridays which are the days they host The Gallery, always Top DJs coming to perform and the sound systems are perfect, definitely the best sound systems you can find in London and in...

We had an amazing experience in the Ministry of Sound, we booked a VIP table and the service was outstanding. Everybody was very kind and we got everything we needed. The DJ (Fedde Legrand) that night was incredible, the best mixes ever ! It is definitely the best club in London :-)

Visited for jonas blue and Tom zanetti however left early due to the lack of security/crowed control! Was literally pushed round as they kept letting people in when the room was clearly full. Beware girls you will get manny men coming up offering you drugs....also could not see a single member of security all night.

There's a reason for the club's cult like status and it hits you when you first experience the sound upon entry into the club. If you are going, you need to go VIP class for an altogether different experience. You bypass the queues as you are quickly swept away to the upper levels with the plush seats and it allows... More

Myself has already played a few times there as a DJ for different promoters and labels including the main rooms and small rooms too. I haven even visited the club with friends many times and I know some of the staff too at both the club and the office and it is always a good experience to be there in... More

Ministry of Sound has to be the best club in London, there are 4 rooms hosted by some of the best DJ's in the world. We went on January 20th and, as usual, booked a VIP table. The service from Agne & the VIP team was it's usual excellent standard. No queuing at the door or to hand in your... More
