Location: Beijing, China
It's barely been open two years but already Beijing club giant One Third hits the Top 100 for the second time. It’s not hard to see why; an industrial strength multi-floored rave den deep in the Gongti district, One Third is an extraordinarily high-tech maze with complex lighting installations and immense LEDs.
A total feast for the senses, it comes from good pedigree as it’s owned by the team responsible for Beijing’s famous Sir Teen club and was built by massive Dutch production company Live Legends. In fact One Third hasn’t been short of legends full stop. Rolling through the club’s impressive sliding metal door during 2019 were guests such as Martin Garrix, Rezz, Slushii, R3HAB, Fedde Le Grand and Yellow Claw.
But the international line-up is only one-third of the One Third story; the venue’s most regular nights are special themed events and their own ADM (Asian Dance Music) Festival. Now five editions deep, it’s created a focal point for homegrown talent to inspire each other and thrive. Only two years into its story, there’s already a whole lotta love for One Third.
