Feet first at the Camden Palace
Now the CPalace is called KOKO and really sucks.
Plus their was Loonly tunes at the Dome in Tufnel park (near tubepacked on two floors... May have picked up but last time I went there hardly anyone was there.
Very sad to see these two which were amazing for 15 years go... As said Dome has rockscene now ... maybe picked up a bit.
Both those you had no probs getting in.
Though with emo thing that may have changed.
Tonight there is a thing called Slimelight. A goth night in Electrohertz with a good rep but aint been there behind Angel Tube station
Metros in oxford station 100m from totenham court road station on a tue... not sure... fairly small.
or rock nights at the Mean Fidler (not all that) bhind tottenham court road on a fri or sat not sure.
Sin City on a Fri in Electric Ballroom behind Camden Tube.
Actually where you really want to go to find out somewhere goos to go is Camden and the Camden Stables markets in Camden... The mecca for all things rock and indie.
Or go where there are gig (see www.stargreen.co.uk) and get flyers and ask those in queue.
Other places worth checking
Also not a nightclub but centre of the trance scene
Go for the up and comming synergy and antiworld (esp synergy) at SEONE venue. (go early slow q)
The toilet is the size of a small club...
It has 6 rooms each as big as major clubs and these events are more like a festival with markets, various music, cafes the works.
Each of those large rooms is the size of one large nightclub
Very good culture, very safe... hippy like in a way...
You can try Whirley gig (nice but much smaller) see same site.
Novelty clubs include
www.carwash.co.uk Carwash being a 70s 80s club where you have to be dressed up (the more ott the better or in other fancy dress).
Have to pre book too.
Also they have a swimming pool and jacquzzi, lots of hen, stage, 18th ans 21st brithday groups
Oh did I mention the pool?
dress code there is simply not the main outfit... all else goes.
swimware, underware, half of underwhere, either half, nude, making out in changing booths.
www.schooldisco.com sats... guess the dress code? 70s 80s 90s

www.ocotberfestpub.com on the first sunday of the months... Jelly wrestle night... the girls see more of the guys as the girls in the pit play rough... poor dude dont stand a chance.
