Do you think the interior is actually important in you having a good time, and the club being a success?
absolutely. whatever the interior design is (even if it's just "raw") defines the initial energy in the space when people come in.
Do you think that a 2000 capacity is sufficient?
Personally, I think that's too many people. If you're going to have that much room, divide it and keep rooms closed when the club is empty. Normally, I would say room for 500 - 1000 is more than enough.
Do you think that 4 bars and dancefloors is enough. should there be?
less - damn, what are you building, Madison Square Garden?
Do you think the DJ booth should be above the crowd?
The booth should be close to the floor but slightly elevated - the DJ should be able to turn off the monitor and still really hear what it sounds like on the floor.

One of the best things you can do if you're planning on designing a space is to make the rooms different and make use of whatever outdoor space (roof, decks, etc) you can.
What ruins a club interior in your opinion
(even if you`ve never seen it yourself,something that would really ruin a good night )
Tacky people (and furniture), bad room accoustics, nasty bathrooms (especially nasty bathrooms - the ladies WILL NOT COME if the bathrooms are nasty).
What would you personally want in your ideal club?(you are allowed to invent things if you want, just think of your ultimate dream club, money is no object)
A great, clear sound system. Comfortable chill rooms. Inexpensive drinks. Great music. Outdoor space. No drama (security, coat check, etc.) and an affordable cover.
What is the best club interior you have ever witnessed? and why?
I really loved Red Zone because of the balcony overlooking the massive main floor, and the simplicity with which the space was designed. I would say Cielo in NYC is really well designed, and Sound Factory Bar was a well designed space (back in the day, not Cheetah by any means). Twilo, the End Up, the World... there are really too many to name. Zanzibar was certainly interesting from a decorative point of view, too.
