Ministry of Sound first opened its doors way back in September 1991. Inspired by New York’s cavernous house venues, our home was a derelict bus garage in south London – an area that, at the time, was more infamous than famous. The first night had no alcohol, three flashing lights, moody security and unless you knew the names of at least half-a-dozen Chicago house DJs, you were never getting through the menacing, prison-like, gates.
Despite these eccentricities, the night was a success and within a matter of weeks, word had spread that something special had landed smack bang in the middle of London’s club scene. This was the first club dedicated to house music, the first club to pick up the gauntlet laid down by the second summer of love and, most importantly, the world’s first nightclub with a room built purely for exceptional sound quality.
To this day sound is still at the forefront of everything we do. Put simply, there is no better place on earth to hear the world’s greatest DJs play the world’s best music.
