The word ¡§disco¡¨ comes from the French ¡§discotheque¡¨, a
fusion between ¡§disco¡¨ and ¡§bibliotheque¡¨ which first came into
use during World War II when the ban on jazz and dance halls
gave rise to clandestine clubs and the figure of the ¡§disc-jockey¡¨.
Since then, clubs have experienced a transformation linked to
the needs of a demanding party public eager to experience a
wide range of sensations. This publication presents an extensive
compilation of the hottest clubs in the world's leading cities.
