In a nutshell…
Fondly referred to as ‘The Egg’, this is the last club still flying the flag for proper raving in the once glorious King’s Cross hub.
Where is it?
Jump off the tube at King’s Cross, get your march on down York Way for about 10 minutes and you’re there. Failing that, an Uber will get you there in a couple of minutes if you’re not up for the walk.
What’s the vibe?
House, tech house, techno, deep tech, deep house and everything in between delivered by all the big hitters from across Europe and the rest of the world; from chart-botherers like Tough Love to underground techno heroes like Julian Jeweil. You’ll find the crowd is a mixture of students, Londoners and tourists (mainly Italian). Also it’s one of the few clubs in the area that has a 24-hour licence, so it’s often the last stop-off for those on an all-nighter.
What makes it a great venue?
A couple of refurbs over the last few years have left Egg with a killer sound system in every room, a superb garden area and outside terrace for day raving in the summertime. In fact, they remove and replace the outdoor roof according to seasons. It’s been around for 13 years now, which means every part of the club operates in a professional manner and they’re always making improvements; for instance, a new mezzanine level has been added to the main room in the club’s latest overhaul.
What’s the booze situation?
Drinks prices are about average for London (single mixers from £6, beers £5.50), so if you fancy a big one then make sure you’ve got a wallet full of notes.
Finally: what happens to all the coats left in the cloakroom?
They’re kept for a maximum of three months before they get donated to local homeless charity Shelter From The Storm.
