Club Vanity is a big, multi-space club in Shinsaibashi, very popular with the young Japanese, who form lines outside waiting to get in. Foreigners also come to this underground club, which features beautiful dancers, guest international DJs, and regular special events. Vanity is quite upscale and impressive, and provides for a good night of EDM and other styles of dance music. Vanity enforces a no smoking policy, with smoking permitted in designated areas only.
