Fabulous 100

Sottovento Kultclub

Not the impressive valet-clad entrance enthralled in laser lights and paparazzi cameras like Billionaire, it's a softer mood at least on the outside of Sottovento with its white rod iron gate and aged marquee that could use a little updating.

But few ever notice those details, arriving well-after midnight to a packed house of dance lovers looking for a revolving line-up of international DJs as well as periodic drop-ins by celebrities like Bono, Denzel Washington and Shaggy.

Inside Sottovento, a colourful collection of painted-plaster walls feels equal parts medieval circus and genie bottle with bright red upholstery, gold tables and arched ceiling supported by purple-painted pillars.
