Ministry of Sound reviews

By Serge M.

Definetely among the best clubs in London

Went to ministry in late April 2016 where I saw Blasterjaxx in the Box. The experience was sublime, and I think the fact that it has a full program with a very good lineup until 7 am makes it amongst the best venues in London. Go between 12:30-1:30 in order to get the most out of the night. Tip: Have a few drinks in ya before you get there to get you in the vibes.

This place doesnt fail to deliver!

I came to Ministry for the second time in my life and saw Laidback Luke perform in the Box. Again, Ministry didn't fail to make my night spectacular. Yes the entry hasn't gone down since last time but hey for the music quality I don't care. Since the first time I went to ministry I have been telling everybody about it.

Fantastic experience despite people saying you need to be in the house scene

I am Carlota and I came to London with my 3 friends from Spain and stayed for the weekend. Although we were told by some people that Ministry was only good if you like house music and liked raving, we had some of most fun of our lives. It is not far from the centre (about 3 stops from big ben) and the drinks are slightly lower than the average London club prices. I liked it because since I am a girl, you don't have to dress up and wear heels, which is expected in most London clubs.

Best london club hands down. It simply has the best sound system, the best international djs and the heritage of 3 decades going which is insane! Experience while you can for I think sooner or later they will close. Either they gonna move it sub terrain at site or they gonna move it. With Elephant & Castle rapidly expanding and modernising, I sadly see no future for the club in it's current shape or form.

Ministry the good old days

Ministry was a belting club back in the early 90's and in the early days no drinks licence ? However we managed to keep the beat all through the night till early mornings with a little help from ........ well I will leave that to your imagination ? If you were in the London scene at that time you went for drinks before hand at the Buzz club or Rumours cocktail bar (west end) then around 1am headed for the MOS, If you were lucky (we were) we knew all the security as most were East End /Essex boys so we went straight to the front and in we went , they had season themes through the year and the place was decked out one summer time with 5 foot Bumble bees hanging from the ceilings in the light room ! the visuals of that later in the night were wicked ! Going through the corridor you entered the dark room ( Hard House) and their was a pyramid in the centre of the floor with people dancing on all the levels then at the top a sexy babe dancing on her own wrapped in very little ummmmm ! Back in the light room you would go to chill down a little and pay a visit to the mad hatter ? yes this guy wore a mad hatters hat and you could get all that was needed to continue the night without feeling tired ? When morning came we all headed over to Hampstead where you could find an all day time party cafe ! God I loved those days !

By Joe I.

Being from the United States, where VIP is a spectacle with overdone fireworks and pageantry, we enjoyed our "lower key" experience. The VIP staff was very friendly, accommodating and professional. Our pricing included drinks, with no minimum and was reasonable (compared to Las Vegas or Hollywood). The crowd had great energy and the sound system was second to none. Can't wait to come back!

By Erik P.

A group of my friends and myself went for a birthday celebration. From the first email, they were very polite and helpful. Accommodations were excellent and our hostess took really good care of us. My only complaint is that three of my friends were kicked out of the club. The security almost didn't let us in due to the lack of a sufficient ID and were very rude upon escorting my friends out. For such a steep price paying for VIP at 100 pounds a person, I was shocked they were so willing to throw people who paid this out of their club. Security was irrational and not willing to give a sufficient explanation and rather just abused their power. I would think at such an expensive venue this would not be the case. Unfortunately, this obviously hurt our experience here as we spent over a thousand dollars to attend the venue.

By Tim T.

VIP experience great and relaxing, could sit and have good chat while warming up with some drinks then hit dance floor whilst they hold onto the your bottle so no thefts or spiking going on. skipping the queue and staff were friendly. the DJ was out of this world - Eric Morillo - awesome! crowd is mixed too so not just 18 year olds! some old 90's clubbers still hanging around (like me;-)) price in VIP was fine compared to other central London pricing. I do agree with the comment of the one star man about the male doormen that give the entrance a factory/prison feel. can't be too hard to be imposing and inspire safety without being dull and brutish. something for ministry to work on. overall best night I had in ages.

By Phil M.

First time visiting from Scotland and decided to go for a VIP table! In London!! Well at £100 of which you get back £70 on drinks and minus average ticket price say £18 ! I paid £12 for the best service ever! Skipping the queue and being personally escorted to your table was fantastic. A few cheeky welcome shots and we were very well settled in, Private toilet, private cloakroom and private views over the dance floors it was well worth the extra money. To finish it off we were walked out to the street by our waitress and she arranged a Cab for us again missing any queues !!! Lizzie and the VIP team were amazing! I am in no way rich but this was perfect especially if you are heading into the older clubber mid 30's- 40's :) Go for it you won't regret it ! We will be back !

By Osama A.

Booked a table there for Friday 24th October. Customer service was amazing. They keep a strong follow up with VIP guests. We were escorted to our table by our hostess Lizzie. She was really welcoming. Immediately the waitress presented us with welcome drinks and showed us the menu. Ordered the bottle and it was served quickly. We were there till 5:30am in the morning and party was still going on in full swing. Sound system is awesome. Definitely a night to remember. Thank you MoS, and keep up the good work. Will visit again definitely.

By Jarrod H.

Booked a VIP table at MoS rather than just paying for general admission as we have done in the past. The main reason was that we're now entering the era of the more "mature" clubber (yep, getting old) so thought it would be good to have our own private table that we could retreat to when the legs needed a rest. What a fantastic night !! Hostesses (Amanda & Lizzie) we're brilliant, very friendly and ensuring that we had everything we needed for a great night and to top it off we got to meet and chat to Hernan Cattaneo before he started his amazing 4 hour set. The price for VIP may seem expensive at first glance but includes a substantial drinks allowance and the benefit of having our own table easily made it worthwhile for us. We would definitely do this again, just waiting for the right DJs.

By Victor A.

Great VIP service! Very friendly and attentive hostesses. The atmosphere was amazing, the music was great and overall myself and my friends had one of the best nights in London at the Ministry of Sound night club. Looking forward to visiting soon.

By Musaed A.

Friendly and brilliant VIP service from all Ministry Of Sound staff specially "Lizzie" for sure ill come back and book a VIP table.

By Larissa L.

Went to MOS on 1st August to see Oakenfold especially. It was all very well organised and even though a couple of our guests let us down at the last minute, it was no problem at all. We thought it was a top night and we were well pleased with the service that was provided. Every time we left our table, they took our drinks away from the table too so they could not be stolen or drunk by somebody else in the VIP area. Top night, will deffo be coming again and using the VIP area.

By Fabian G.

Again it was a great night.Friendly and brilliant service and for sure an amazing performance from Bob Sinclar.Love from Malta

By Holly J.

I had a great experience at MOS as a VIP. They looked after us really well and we didn't have to worry about a thing. The only downside was that we had around £50 left on our bar bill at the end of the night and were told it was none redeemable.

By Carole H.

Fab experience in VIP, will definitely book this again. We had the best time and the staff were fantastic, very attentive :-)

By Andrew S.

From speaking with Terri for booking to leaving the club in the morning, an experience everyone should have. Absolutely first class VIP experience. Can't wait to come back to London and do it all over again.

By Clembo N.

Top Quality night for my mate's 35th birthday celebration. We were looked after by the hostesses and bar staff all night. Well worth the money. Awesome VIP service. TOP DRAW !

By Mark L.

Last time I went to ministry was 1998-99, had not been in years. This time we decided to go back for defected in the house, what a night. We booked a vip table online and from the first email the service was just amazing, as was the whole vip experience. The vip was brilliant, service on the night was outstanding. It is great having your own table/area to go back to when the rest of the club gets too busy. The 2 vip balcony's over looking both rooms are great. Wicked night had by all of us & we can't wait to go back to another defected in the house at Ministry of sound.

By H P.

Used to come here in my university days, excellent place to come on student nights. Amazing music and sound system.

By Luke B.

After my last trip to london I shall be going to mos for the second time, great atmosphere and music, strict security but im all for it if keeps trouble makers outside. Would like to book vip one time as its looks amazing but pricey.

By Kevin W.

First time I went to ministry was 1995, had not been in years, so we decided to go up for old times sake, we booked a VIP table online and can I just say, from the first email Terri-Leigh was just amazing, as was the whole VIP experience, infact we had such a good night that we are going back next month. The VIP was brilliant value for money, and it is great having your own table to go back to when the rest of the club gets too busy,and the VIP balcony over the box is probably the best location in the club. Truly amazing night and I can't wait to go back!

By Chay D.

MoS is an absolutely superb club, easy to find, and plenty of parking round the corner on the main road. The sound system in The Box is pretty much the best I've heard, and the lighting is brilliant (being a club sound/light tech and DJ, I appreciate these things!). In terms of music, its all new and fresh tunes which will no doubt eventually filter down to the mainstream venues. I highly recommend getting a membership card as this gives you +1 express entry at reduced price, free members nights plus a goodie bag. The only thing that prevents me from rating 5 stars is just this one doorman who has accused me of being inebriated on two separate occasions (despite the fact that a: I don't drink or take illegal substances, b: I'd just driven 50-odd miles to get there and c: I've been to many clubs and never, ever had this problem), he did let us in, but it was a bit embarrassing. All the other doormen are great; very polite, professional and customer focused.

By Louis H.

Absolute top night! Hats off to the security for finding both my phone and wallet and creating an all around good vibe. Will definitely be back very soon!

By Leo J.

I love MoS. However, I have one bad experience. My friends were running late, so, instead of waiting outside I stood in the queue for 15 mins. When I reached to the security, he did not allow me to enter saying they do not allow single entry. I think this is ridiculous. What is I am a tourist or on a short business trip who wants to enjoy MoS?

By Yen Y.

I would like to go to ministry of sound during the nye. There's only two of us who are going. Is there any way to reserve a table for two for the whole entire night?

By Terry W.

booked VIP at the ministry for the 1st november , and from the first contact through to the end of the night the service was quality , terri and all the staff in the vip area were friendly and welcoming i had a few friends down from up north and they can't wait to book up again so if you are planning a night at the ministry i would consider the VIP service , i wont be going ass a normal punter again

By Terri-Leigh F.

Hi Glitch360,the trick is to arrive early to beat the queues - im afraid sometimes with so many people trying to get in, our queues are quite large, but we get people in quickly so I am unsure why it took you so long on that particular night. Please try to arrive around 10.30pm and have your id and ticket ready! For set times, please email experience@ministryofsound. Com closer to the date - maybe next week! Thanksministry Love

By Terri-Leigh F.

Hi Stereomaniac, Sounds like a brilliant night! Pleased the bar staff treated you well and hope you keep coming back! A night to remember! Thanks

By Terri-Leigh F.

Hi LeoLion, We remember that scene in Spicegirls! Cant believe you were there! Its great that someone that has been on the scene and knows which clubs have been and gone understands what we are about! I hope you can pop down more often! Have a lovely week! Ministry Love

By Terri-Leigh F.

Hi Eurogal12, Thanks for your comment! We love introducing people to new DJ's and new sounds. That's what the music scene is about! Hope you discover more DJ's with us! Have a great week.

By Terri-Leigh F.

Hi Ghandi12, Thanks for your feedback! Our security are really fair and its a shame that only the ones that are turned away comment on here usually - thanks for taking your time to comment and hope you come back again soon - smart/casual is the dress code! ;) Ministry Love

By Terri-Leigh F.

Hi Teddybear, Kinky Malinki was absolutely insane and we loved it too! NYE is already selling quickly so get your tickets ASAP! Thanks

By Terri-Leigh F.
