A superclub is a very large or superior nightclub, often with several rooms with different themes.[1][2] The term was first coined in Mixmag, the British electronic dance and clubbing magazine, in 1995.[3]

Superclubs may include nightclubs that have high capacity, or are multi-story, high profile, and operate city and region wide or are well known by people.[4] Some superclubs are owned and managed by a dance music record label or a club that was or is culturally important. The term may also be used to define its position within the club scene hierarchy.[5][6]

Annabel's, which opened in London in 1963, is an early example of a club that could retrospectively be called a superclub. In the early 1980s, The Saint opened in New York with a circular dance floor under a planetarium dome. The Fridge opened in London in 1981, featuring video screens and a chill out lounge.

Privilege Ibiza is the "world's largest nightclub" according to the Guinness Book of Records, with a capacity of 10,000 people.
