In previous years, you could expect huge venues like now-defunct mega-club Circa to win in this category, but times are changing. The success of Wrongbar proves that many prefer to party in a much more intimate setting, not to mention a room that puts the emphasis on good music played through a great sound system, rather than on bottle service booths and celebrity hosts. Also worth noting is that Wrongbar is just as much a live club as a DJ spot, a mandate that better reflects the heavily blurred genre divisions of the iPod generation.
