I recently attended Proud 2 with several work colleagues on a Friday evening to professionally unwind before settling into the relaxing weekend. Due to my ethnicity (BLACK BRITISH) I was racially abused by word of mouth SEVEN times before being brutally punched in the back of the head while harmlessly urinating. When I requested to liaise with management to report the violent incident I was ushered to leave immediately, barring in mind I am very diplomatic and courteous. I did not swear, raise my tone, utilise sarcasm or display any aggressive body language, yet I was made to feel wholly unwelcome simply because of the COLOUR of my skin. I would advise this bar to Caucasians only, If you happen to be highly tolerant and accepting of racism then Bar Polski is the place for you. Thanks for reading
The worst nightout I has ever had.. Not worth the journey . This will be another flop of a club. Treated like a criminal - body searched before you even go in. Poor cub experience
Was there on Thursday for the press evening and was pretty sceptical in the lead up. Was pleasantly surprised to see what Proud have accomplished - it's a completely different venue and fair play it does look amazing. The music was quality and fun and the circus performers were innovative and extremely entertaining. Had a real laugh - for those willing to mission it out to north Greenwich it's worth it if only once.
Plush Dafunk was chill. The new owners have opened up the floor more and added some features which add an extra bit of wow to the ambiance. When it comes to having a big night out not much compares to this place... vibrating dance floor and the energy you get from high ceilings.... can't wait for summer out on the terrace overlooking the thames.
Was blown away last night, has come such a long way from matter - looks amazing, great performances, was really impressed! Looking forward to future nights out there!
Went along with a mate to the launch last night and was pretty damn impressed, might have something to do with the free drink but I loved the place, the outside terrace alone was worth the trip
If Fabric couldn't make it work, what makes Proud think they can? All the line ups are oddly programmed so far, with a load of bands in BIG LETTERS with (dj set) sneakily slotted in somewhere after. Those line ups are not going to fill that venue, hence them offering loads of people to get in for free. Proud gets full because it's in camden, not because it has fantastic line ups (although there are some obviously). I'd be very interested to see how this works out....
