Wicked place! Me, my GirlFriend and her Gay mates went there last Saturday and was proper good!! Well nice House music and very friendly people! BoSh!! Drinks are served by the can and are 4Squid each, but HeyHo.. Whatever! :o) xx


The place only really gets going at 1am, so no need to get there any earlier than that really. £4 for cans of beer and £entry on a Friday so ignore the timeout pirces. Good laugh really, place is semi full of wreck heads and shoreditch kids, which gives it a good mix. I enjoyed it.


A total shambles. Went to this place in January with another straight girl and some gay male friends. We queued for an hour and a half, then were made to wait at the front of the line with many impatient people pushing us from behind for another half hour. After enquiring, we were informed by the door man that the club was full - then the dj/promoter had twenty people turn up who were let straight through. I asked if it was worth us waiting any longer, to which the door woman replied 'they probably won't be letting any more girls in now'. Charming.
