If you enjoy dressing up to the nines, going to nice club and sipping on G+Ts, this place is NOT for you!
A regular night out in Shoreditch with some friends led me to this hidden ‘treasure’. A free underground club hidden from street view, the only thing indicating its existence is a chalkboard sign on the street. You descend down into a sawdust ‘under construction’ cave where the floors are concrete and the bars are made of MDF. Walls are grey and covered in posters and flyers of local gigs. Sounds grimey, it is, and it’s fantastic.
3am arrival and it’s packed to the brim with a banging live DJ set making the crowd insane. Fuelled by cheap beer, spirits and whatever thizz and shiz was being passed around, it doesn’t stop until 5am.
Unmissable for those who want cheap underground fun ‘til the early hours and experience a whole new level of shabby chic.
The cobbled streets, the boutique shops amongst labelled fashion, and pubs/bars and restaurants galore for an evenings out…it’s just a London lovely.
But after a morning of shopping all I wanted was a nice quiet lunch with a good magazine. Armed with the latest Glamour Magazine, I seeked out a cafe where ‘eating solo’ wouldn’t appear weird. So just off Shaftesbury Avenue I found Thai Square, a lovely food court that had an array of food to choose from, and not just Thai food despite the restaurant title.
So with a delicious giant cous cous salad and spinach quiche, I chilled out and was not disturbed once, despite it being lunch time ‘rush hour.’ Apparently in the evenings it’s even better, especially in the summer with its outdoor court area with seating and heaters. So for those who have shopped ‘til they’ve dropped in the day, to post work chill-out…this is a place to try.
An awsome new band I saw at the Slaughtered Lamb in Farrington. Very alternative, mellow with a powerful voice. The video above was taken at the Slaughtered Lamb when I saw them with some friends.
Slaughtered Lamb also deserves a shout out - small dark basement venue with random 60’s furniture and typical British Food… perfect if you want to discover and enjoy and appreciate new music on Mon-Wed evenings!
A long planned night out with Uni girls meant a lovely meal in the West End had to be on the cards! When I was 18 I spent 3 months in South Africa, and Cape Town fish was amazing….and I miss it so much! So when I saw this place online with a special deal (2 courses for £13.95!!) I just had to book.
The place is stunning with great service. Though we ate from the set menu they also have a conveyor belt sushi table and teppanyaki chefs so I am definitely going back to get some of that!
Usually when you think West End and restaurants, you think posh portions and a money hangover. This place changed that with good portions, beautiful food, nice deals and a great look so you can dress to impress ;)
Fabric is internationally renowned for showcasing fantastic underground of dubstep, drum and bass, techno and house music, and the reputation does not let down. I went on Friday night, and was lucky enough to be on guest-list as a friend’s friend was playing. Standing behind the decks was amazing, and we danced until 5.30am (without taking any ‘stimulants’). Without guest-list it’s £18 to get it, but totally worth it… incredible night.
Where I’m heading to tonight in the East End of London. What’s the point in £30 entry to a club…when you can go to a free place with loads of mates and live music. Hope everyone has a new years eve full of fun and debauchery :)
