Several Decibel Festival artists, including Phil Hartnoll of Orbital and Roman Flugel, have commented that Q Nightclub in Seattle is one of the best clubs in America. Boasting Seattle’s only Funktion One system, Q Nightclub is world class across the board. The soundsystem is beautifully integrated into the space, and the volume, clarity, and dynamic range is simply insane. It’s a flown system that would normally comprise several F-1 Dance Stacks. At Q, the system has been suspended from the ceiling and walls with the big bass cabinets installed at floor level, which allows the bass to not only pass across the room above floor level, but also under the sprung dancefloor so that the bass resonates into the legs of people dancing. There are also another 20 Funktion One fill speakers and subs located throughout the club. Need more convincing? Steve Lieberman of SJ Lighting—the dude that’s been doing the mainstage lighting for Ultra Music Festival for more than a decade—designed and installed the dancefloor lighting system.

Since opening its doors in early September, Q’s creative director, Kevin Kauer, has brought in amazing internationally acclaimed DJs including, Honey Soundsystem, Quentin Harris, Hunee, Sleazy McQueen, French Express, and Jacques Renault to spin at the club. In late September, Q was part of the Decibel Festival where Orbital, Nina Kraviz, Erykah Badu, and Roman Flugel played to sold out crowds. Over the next month Q welcomes Christy Love (11/17), Horse Meat Disco (12/1), Optimo (12/14), and Prosumer (12/15).

Q is a Seattle nightclub featuring electronic dance music in a dramatically renovated 12,000-square-foot former auto rebuild garage. Opened in September of 2012, Q has already made a positive impact on the nightclub scene with an array of talented resident and guest DJs, a state of the art Funktion One sound system, world class lightning design, stunning interior, and friendly service staff. Q is open Monday and Wednesday thru Sunday with live DJs, a bourbon bar, and not one, but four disco balls. To learn more, call 206.432.9306 or visitwww.qcapitolhill.com.
