16. Womb

City: Tokyo
Address: 2-16 Maruyama-cho
Status: Open

Though this pulsing Shibuya favorite couldn't seem any less womb-like, chances are you'll want to stick around for the duration—no preemies here. Unlike other glitzy, larger-than-life Japanese nightspots, Womb is less about showmanship, and more about causing eargasms with its surreal soundsystem (as DJs like Busy P can attest.) The club also scores bonus points for providing the backdrop to one of Babel's most memorable scenes.
