Christmas is here. Fun. Frivolity. Some sort of over-cooked poultry. I LOVE IT.
In tribute to the season, I'm going to be posting the Seven Days of Club Sex [originally 'An Inconclusive Guide to Nightlife in London', to be published in January's Junction 13 magazine]. The article was geared towards students, so it focuses mostly on cheap nights out.
ON THE FIRST DAY OF CLUB SEX MY SWEET TART GAVE TO ME:
ELECTRO AND A FITTY
This club night has recently seen a slick new upgrade, moving from Soho’s Punk to a bigger, sexier venue in the form of The Den in Holborn. It’s a great event: cheap, fun and frantic, with a complementary round of beautiful people on the side. The dress code generally sees casual but stylish - this is not the place for Ugg boots – and a good haircut never goes amiss. On the other hand, if you fancy looking a bit creative, Bite has a different theme every week, such as ‘Clip Art’, ‘Wolf’ and ‘Cheap Date’. Music ranges from indie to dubstep to electro… if it’s good, it’ll get played. Get your rocks off and your dancing shoes on.
One of the best bits about Bite is the price. IT’S CHEAP! If you sign up to their mailing list [see www.bitebitebite.co.uk] you can get in for free, or for £3 with NUS. Before 11pm tequila shots are only £1.50, with beer and glasses of wine for 2-4-1 [£1 each], and just £2 after 11pm. Clubbing on a Monday has never been so appealing…
