World is a multifaceted nightlife venue where you can enjoy iconic setlists.
Established in 2001, World is in Shimogyo-ku, central Kyoto, known for its underground arcades, izakaya pubs, and shopping malls.
The multi-leveled venue features an elaborate playground consisting of an underground nightclub, a cocktail bar, a lounge area, and a VIP karaoke speakeasy.
World’s overall upscale atmosphere is demonstrated differently across the venue’s many areas. The nightclub features large archways reminiscent of European churches.
While the cocktail bar and lounge’s decor is quirky and colorful with neon lights and pop art, the VIP karaoke floor is a relaxed space with beige sofas, velvet carpets, and plants.
World is not loyal to a specific music genre, with a roster of artists playing on particular nights, but it seems like the club mainly caters to electro-heads.
Internationally-renowned DJs like Skrillex, R3HAB, Steve Aoki, Yellow Claw, and Richie Hawtin have spun decks at the Kyoto nightclub.
The club is a gathering spot for locals and tourists alike, with star-studded lineups gathering diverse music lovers.
World’s undeniably ample space and stellar performances make partiers stick to the dance floors.
