Yes, there are plenty of places to party locally, but you haven?t actually par-tayed until you?ve visited a bona fide super club. We?ve scoured the world for some of the very best. Here they are:
1. Zouk, Singapore

Singapore?s Zouk celebrated its 23rd anniversary in 2014. Every week, Zouk faithfuls pack the club for a piece of dance action. The local DJs are as good as it gets but it?s the stellar visiting cast that really ratchets up the tempo. DJ luminaries such as Hardwell, Armin van Buuren and Paul van Dyk have graced the stage at Zouk. The club even hosts the insanely popular ZoukOut, an annual beach party on Sentosa Island. This homegrown club has since expanded into Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and has its eyes set on South Korea.
2. Space, Ibiza, Spain
Ibiza needs no introduction: it?s arguably the dance party capital of the world. And within that world, competition for top clubbing rights is undoubtedly tough. You have to be killer to be ranked. Yet Space has held on to the top spot for years now? with good reason of course. This Ibiza stalwart has been running since 1989 and made its name for its legendary Sunday sessions, which run from 4.30 pm on Sunday until 6 am on Monday. A long list of DJs takes turn playing on their wall of Funktion One system to a packed dance floor: it?s akin to a mini-stadium.
3. Green Valley, Brazil
With the world?s eyes firmly set on Brazil in 2014 (for the soccer World Cup) and 2016 (for the Summer Olympics), it?s really no coincidence that Green Valley, a mega outdoors club in Camboriú, a beach resort in Santa Catarina, is one of the world?s best. Expect high production values on party nights: lights, streamers and top tunes from DJs such as Fatboy Slim and Bob Sinclar combine in a heady whirlwind that drives thousands of party goers into dance mania. The setting itself, under the canopy of a rainforest, is truly mind bending.
4. Ministry of Sound, London

The charismatic Ministry of Sound (MoS) needs no introduction. First founded in 1991, this British club is now a worldwide brand with its own record label and a host of more than 1500 MoS events that tour the world. Still, a visit to its stronghold in London is a must do for every serious clubber: top DJs, such as Armin van Buuren, and killer sound (Martin Audio featuring 12 subwoofers), lighting and CO2 systems, equal hours of party pleasure. If you?re contemplating a visit, hurry because the club had a near brush with closure ? the site it?s on was slated for redevelopment. MoS has successfully petitioned against the redevelopment but the tone has been set?
5. BCM, Mallorca, Spain
This cavernous Spanish club in the beach resort town of Magalluf might be famed for its messy foam, popcorn and water parties and celebrity visits, but it also has a visiting DJ set list that is the envy of clubs the world over: Deadmau5, Tiësto, Steve Aoki and Avicii hold court when the resident DJs aren?t busy entertaining a capacity crowd of 3000. Come in the summer for electronic dance superstars or visit in the winter for massive raves and techno. Whatever you choose, expect it to be loud, messy and fun at BCM.
