The upstairs portion of the Oxford Street stalwart known as the Midnight Shift was revamped and relaunched as the Shift Club in 2015 and then taken over and re-relaunched as Universal in September 2018. Strip scenesters keen for a beer, a steak and some catch-ups can enjoy themselves downstairs; up here, it's all dance parties, drag shows and sweaty one-offs courtesy of a round of international promoters and DJs. The sound system is as excellent as ever, the floor is usually packed with shirtless men. There's a bar just off the dancefloor along with a bar/lounge and an expanded outdoor smoking area and balcony.
