A real techno institution, Rex has been pumping out quality house music for some 20 years, steadily improving its sound system in order to continue attracting those superstar DJs. Laurent Garnier has been a regular for years, and the big names keep on coming: Sven Vath, Jeff Mills, Carl Cox. It’s good for hearing what up-and-coming DJs are up to, too, with frequent label showcases and lots of international talent. Check out what’s on in advance, rather than turning up excited, only to find you’re there on one of the nights when it’s a bit dead. On a good night, it’s rocking: the space isn’t as big as the music policy might suggest, but you can still put your hands in the air like you just don’t care.
