What's dance music without a venue to truly experience it? While we can love EDM just as much in our headphones or in our homes, you will not get the full impact of the music or the culture at your computer. This life needs to be lived in the club, with bass and beats hitting you from all sides. That is inescapable. And if you're hitting up a wack club, what are you really doing to yourself?

The question is, what makes a good club? Is it the fact that its considered "hot?" Do they have a great line-up on the regular? Is it the sound system? Or is it some weird x-factor that can't be easily explained. We looked at all of these factor in bringing you the best clubs in America right now. From coast to coast, huge megaclubs to smaller, more intimate spots, these are the venues that will give you the best bang for your buck.
