Nowadays, it might be the kind of club where you're likely to find Daisy Lowe slumming it, but this venue was once a stables for horses who had been injured pulling barges along the nearby canals. Nowadays, the 200-year-old, Grade II-listed former horse hospital plays host to far less lame attractions, focusing on Radio 1-ish indie-electro and synth-pop to delight the likes of Sadie Frost, Nick Grimshaw and other slebby visitors.

The Secret Garden is suitable for even the British weather with heaters and canopies and if you're lucky enough to nab a seat in the snug then there is very little chance you will move from there all night!
Following on with the hot tub craze, they have installed one so near to the bar that the staff could practically throw you a drink. Not prepared for an al fresco dip? Proud also provide swimwear and towels so there are no excuses. Except concern for your personal hygiene.
The acoustic singers can sometimes be a little unpleasant - speaker feedback, down tempo songs and asking for donations at the end of their set, but if you are patient enough, the music inside is always worth waiting for!
It's relatively small, having just two small dance floors. It's fun to go to once or twice, but it's always packed and crammed full of people with no space to dance. I don't recommend booking a stable either.
