Klymax Discotheque


From the halcyon days of disco at Paradise Garage to techno’s formative years at The Music Institute and the blossoming of house music at The Warehouse. Dance music has always needed the right space from where its gravitational rhythms resonate with the audience.

Inspired by these iconic venues and the sounds and communities they helped to nurture and grow, we built Klymax Discotheque — a purpose-built nightclub dedicated to the art of dance.


The venue was designed from ground to sound in partnership with our longtime friend, DJ Harvey, with the legendary scene provocateur channelling every ounce of his 40-plus years of experience acquired operating at the pinnacle of the dance underground to help bring the project to life. Featuring state-of-the-art sound, design and lighting, every element has been carefully considered to enhance the dancefloor experience.

At Klymax, the sound comes first, with the system custom-built to Harvey’s specifications by revered audio engineer, George Stavro. Rich, finely poised and immaculately detailed, the system creates a vast sonic sweet spot, presenting the music exactly as it was intended to be heard, with every nuance intact.

And the attention to sound isn’t limited to the speaker stacks and amplifiers. The club's interior – designed with Potato Head Design Studio in collaboration with Dutch architects OMA – is acoustically treated to tame errant frequencies, featuring a sprung dancefloor to help add bounce to the moves of marathon dancers.

You might be wondering what music you’re likely to hear emanating from the Klymax speakers. In keeping with the space itself, the curation has been meticulously thought out, with a hand-chosen selection of revered international talents ushered in to perform alongside local residents.
