The Southampton party scene would look very different without Switch, a pioneering underground club that has now been setting its own agenda for a couple of years.
The 1250 capacity club is known for hosting promotions like Soundclash, Juiced and Warehouse as well as many warm-up events and after party carry-ons with stars like MK, Annie Mac and Snoop Dogg all having played. The club boasts two bars either side of the dance floor, VIP areas, a killer Funktion One sound system and private balconies overhanging the cauldron-like dance floor. Sleek but unfussy, the styling features exposed brick walls and great lights, ice cannons and well-informed crowds that always cut loose.
Once again this autumn the high-spec club will lead from the front with a mouthwatering programme offering some world-class DJs. This new season all kicks off in style on September 7th with Eli Brown, then Darkzy plays the 14th, and Macky Gee plays the 19th with more drum & bass from Shy FX on the 21st. Once Switch has hosted Patrick Topping, Alan Fitzpatrick and Pete Tong at Docklands, they head back to the club for an afterparty.
