About Ministry of Sound:
Apparently, the famous sound system is only ever run at 45% of its full capacity. If it was played at 100% it would be the loudest manmade sound you could hear!
Ministry of Sound London attracts thousands each weekend and has three dance floors and three bars. Originally conceived with influences from New York's Paradise Garage, Ministry of Sound has had numerous makeovers over the years that have taken it some distance from the original gritty disused bus shelter that boasted flexible plastic doors, no alcohol licence and rooms connected with scaffold walkways. But its beating heart, the Box, remains much the same as it did the day it opened, its focus on sound and production is still at the forefront of the technology of its time.
History:The building was an unused bus depot and was chosen for its warehouse character that was the dominant clubbing environment of the early 90s. Inspired by the US house music movement James Palumbo, Ministry of Sound’s founder, had a vision to bring world famous DJs to the UK enabling dance music fans access to the music they adored and the DJs that played and produced it.
Ministry of Sound London started a worldwide music and lifestyle brand and was a major influence on the UK clubbing scene. It still ranks as one of London's best (and most hedonistic) populist clubs.
