Editor’s Description

Last updated: Jun 12, 2019
Stalwart of the underground dance music scene, The Shelter provides a forum for locally-based independent electronic artists and DJs, and new international alternative dance acts. Everyone from Kode 9 and The Bug to Drexciya, Dam Funk, and Madlib have played here. A converted bomb shelter, the club is dark, sweaty, black, loud, and thumping. Music ranges on a given night from Reggae to IDM to Drum n Bass to Electro to Hip Hop. Wednesdays are always hip hop, Thursdays -- if it's open -- are usually techno, or sometimes a random booking. Drinks are cheap and cover ranges from 10rmb to 100rmb, depending on whose playing. In September 2015, they got a bit of a remodel so it's a little nicer now. Check our event listings to see what's on.
