Turnmills London

Turnmills

63b Clerkenwell Road
 LONDON, EC1M 5PT
Tel: 08710751740
Dress Code: No white trainers, no sports wear, no light-coloured jeans
Hours: Mon-Wed until midnight
           Thursday until 3:00 AM
           Friday until 7:30 AM
           Saturday until 5:00 AM
           Closed Sundays

Over the past two decades, Turnmills has established itself as one of London's most influential entertainment venues. Easy to reach from the City, Docklands and West End, Turnmills is located just 2 minutes from Farringdon station.

Turnmills is renowned for the chart-topping DJs who frequent The Gallery on Friday nights.  Dance until 7:30 AM to thumping beats by the likes of Tall Paul, Benny Bennassi and Judge Jules.

 The Turnmills complex houses two restaurants, a bar, gymnasium and recording studio and of course their world famous nightclub. Having been granted the UK's first ever 24 hour entertainment licence and with a generous late licence, Turnmills has developed an unrivalled reputation for event promotion and first class club nights.

Turnmills has a bit of a bad reputation for aggressive bouncers and a sterile warehouse-like ambiance, but I have found both claims unfounded.  Besides, it’s the strong drinks and phenomenal sound system that keep the clubbers queuing.

Be savvier than the masses by booking tickets in advance so that you can jump the queue, get discounted admission and get your dance on as soon as you arrive.-18th. September 2006

The Castle London

The Castle
44 Commercial Street
Tube: Aldgate East
0871-984-2609

The Castle is a no-frills 24 hour pub located near the Aldgate East tube station.  What it lacks in décor it makes up for with a laid-back vibe and unbeatable drink prices.  Happy hour, which starts at 9 PM features £1 bottles of Carlsberg lager! If lager isn’t your drink of choice try their house wine for only £6.00 a bottle.

The staff members were friendly and attentive.  I never had to wait more than a couple of minutes for a beer, an impressive feat given the fact that there were only four bartenders attending to a heaving crowd.

 The clientele is an interesting mix of students and neighbourhood residents, which creates a casual and pleasing environment to kick back and enjoy good conversation with your mates.  Jeans, trainers, and funky tee shirts were the uniform of almost every punter, so you don’t have to fret before leaving the house that you will be dressed appropriately. After a few pints, wander upstairs with your friends and amuse yourself with a game of billiards while enjoying the indie tunes.-18th. September 2006

The Chelsea Potter London

The Chelsea Potter
119 Kings Road, Chelsea, London  SW3 4PL 
 Tel. 020 7352 9479
Monday - Thursday 11am - 11pm.
Friday & Saturday 11am - 12mn.
Sunday 12noon - 10.30pm

Situated on the corner of Radnor Walk and the Kings Road, the Chelsea Potter is the perfect place to sip a pint and grab a quick bite to eat after a long day of shopping.  Its corner location makes it an excellent spot to catch a glimpse of  the beautiful people passing by on the Kings Road.
The multitude of windows, combined with the high ceiling, the shiny wood throughout and the large mirrors give the place a very light and spacious feel. A few scattered high round tables with high stools; allows for more drinkers to be crammed in during the busy times. When the weather is good enough for outdoor drinking you’ll find nearly as many seats on the pavement outside as there are inside.
If you are feeling a bit peckish tuck into traditional pub favourites such as pie & chips, sausage & mash or  fish & chips.  I was also pleased to discover non-traditional pub fare such as  nachos and chicken tenders with ranch dressing!

The clientele here varies from trendy shoppers, well-heeled locals, students and tourists.  The casual atmosphere and no frills décor ensure that everyone will feel at ease in this popular neighbourhood bar.-18th. September 2006

The Porcupine London pub

The Porcupine
48 Charing Cross Road
London WC2 OBS
0207-379-9855
The Porcupine is a traditional English pub conveniently located within a few minutes walk of the Leicester Square tube station. According to a brief historical synopsis in their menu, The Porcupine used to be frequented by villains and thieves. These days, its location attracts the tourist crowd flooding out from Leicester Square and the theatre crowd on their way up to Cambridge Circus, as well as those out for a beer after work.
Very no frills pub, but it serves it purpose- beer and lots of it. The ground floor is unique in that it has more seats outside than in. What few seats there are well positioned by the large windows, ideal for people watching.  The chances of finding a seat indoors are better if you venture upstairs, where there's a selection of benches and stools. The best location on a summer evening is a position by one of the open upstairs windows, looking out across Charing Cross Road.
The porcupine serves traditional pub fare such as fish and chips, bangers and mash, and steak pies for reasonable prices. The service is very slow, though, so one is better off sticking to a liquid diet.-15th. September 2006

Thirst London

Thirst

Thirst is proof that not all good things come in big packages.  What it lacks in size, it makes up for with banging beats and buzzing vibe. The sleek lines, minimalist décor and beautiful clientele are quintessentially Soho smart but refreshingly, lacking the pretenses of other clubs.

Thirst has terrific prices on an enormous range of mind-narrowing cocktails. Start at the top of the list during Stupid Hour on a Thursday (the new Friday) you might find your way to the bottom by the end of Happy Hour - two weeks later.

Nightly DJs ensure that you’ll be able to shake it with the best of them into the wee hours of the morning.  The neon “no requests” sign above the DJ booth is slightly off-putting, but  ensures that you won’t have to listen to trite  pop music.  The dance floor is rather small so it gets packed quickly.

I arrived on a Thursday night and the bar was hopping by 10 PM. The DJ was absolutely phenomenal and the crowd was definitely up for it.  If you’re not in the mood for dancing, simply kick back on one of the couches and enjoy the view.

The Amber Bar is available for private hire. Itt holds up to 70 standing, or if you desire real VIP treatment, rent out the downstairs bar entirely as a private space, holding up to 110.-15th. September 2006

Ministry of Sound London

Ministry of Sound
Ministry of Sound
103 Gaunt Street
London SE1 6DP
Tel: +44 (0)870 060 0010
Fax: +44 (0)20 7403 5348
arnie@miistryofsound.com
 

Ministry of Sound is located near the Elephant and Castle tub station, a dodgy neighbourhood with very few decent bars nearby. Any pre-clubbing cocktails should definitely be consumed outside the vicinity of Elephant and Castle.
In hindsight, I should have heeded this as an omen, but I remained optimistic. 

I visited on a Friday night in hopes to experience clubbing bliss with London’s hottest movers and shakers.  This popular nightclub/ global empire is world renowned for featuring some of the best DJs on the planet, so I was eager to discover first-hand  what the hype was all about.

The club opens at 11:00, so I arrived at 11:30 in hopes that I would arrive before the masses but alas, the queue was already winding down the street.  The security here is second-to-none.  My bag and I were both thoroughly searched before I was allowed entry.  A bit of a nuisance, but also reassuring as you don’t have to worry about potential armed assault from other revellers.

The cover is a bit steep at £15.00, but I figure they have to pay for all of their marketing somehow.  Once inside, I wasn’t that impressed.  The club was far smaller than I had anticipated, the staff members were unfriendly and the drink prices were ridiculous (a double Jack and Coke was $8.00)!

I wandered upstairs to get a birds-eye view of the dance floor below.  I noticed that there was a VIP area to my left, so I sauntered over to the bouncer to inquire about entry.  He informed me that this privilege was available for a mere £80!  Talk about highway robbery. The exorbitant fee would have been justified if there were acrobats dangling from the ceiling, pole dancers on the table and champagne flowing like water, but alas none of this fabulousness was present. 

Bored upstairs, I trotted back downstairs to explore the other dance room, which was featuring hard house music.  The sound system was blaring almost to the point of distortion and this room was also nowhere near capacity, and therefore, was also disappointing.

My friend and I grew tired of this overpriced, over-inflated club within a few hours and decided to call it a night early, although we could have danced until 6 AM had we so desired. One would need very deep pockets and low expectations to party all night here. Sadly, the highlight of the evening for me was helping myself to the free Ministry of Sound pins at the door only so I could say “been there, done that.” -15th September 2006

LVPo London

LVPO
LVPO is situated in the heart of Soho on Dean Street between Old Compton Street and Shaftsbury Avenue.
Address:
50 Dean Street, London W1D 5BQ
Tel: 020 7434 3399 (Venue)
Tel: 020 7439 4089 (Bookings/Events/PR)


LVPO (pronounced LUPO and meaning “wolf” in Trojan!) has been part of Soho’s bar scene since 1995. LVPO attracts a wonderfully eclectic mix of media, fashion, and the West End’s theatre crowd who can be seen sipping trendy cocktails in this intimate venue.
A multitude of candles and chandeliers create a mystical and inviting appearance. Deep shades of maroon and purple cover the furniture and the banquettes are long, spacious and comfortable. Top notch waiter service provides customers with food and cocktails from the extensive menus.

I was very impressed by LVPO’s extensive cocktail menu.  Champagne cocktails, classic cocktails, shooters and beer ensure that most patrons will find something to their liking. 

I tried their Zombie, a fruity concoction of Bacardi rum, orange juice, pineapple juice, blue Curacao and grenadine. This drink may be sweet, but it definitely packs a punch!  Afterwards, I finished the evening off with a mojito, which was also delicious.

The chill atmosphere and beautiful surroundings make this an ideal spot to entertain clients or to catch up with co-workers or friends.  Drop by on Friday or Saturdays if you want to shake it with the DJ or Monday nights for their two-f0r-one mojitos.- 2 October 2006

Walkabout Overview:
Walkabout is a popular Australian bar/restaurant chain with 48 locations throughout the UK, 17 of which are located in London. On most nights, live bands play rock and indie hits as well as anthems from the last three decades.  Old school hits such as “Jessie’s Girl,” get the crowd revved up on the dance floor. This is an excellent find for a traveller on a budget as all meals are only £3.50!  Their eclectic menu features many Aussie and South African favourites such as kangaroo and springbok (a breed of antelope). For the less adventurous diner, Walkabout has burgers, salads, sandwiches and an all-day breakfast.
 
Review:
I ended up at the Walkabout Temple location merely by chance one Friday evening as it appeared to be the only lively bar in the neighbourhood.  I was a bit taken aback by the £5.00 cover charge as it is more of a sports bar than a nightclub, but I gave in for lack of other enticing options.

I was initially excited, as the bar was packed wall-to-wall and everyone seemed up for it.  The thrill soon wore off after five minutes there.  The bar staff were terribly inattentive and I estimate I had to wait seven minutes to get served. 

I sipped my weak Jack and Coke and was quickly annoyed by the sheer amount of lager lout types constantly bumping into me.  The sound system was blaring obnoxious, overplayed songs from the early nineties, and it was virtually impossible to carry on a conversation over the din.

Luckily, the Walkabout’s upper level has ample seating, so I lounged on a bench away from the seething masses. 

All in all the Walkabout it is what it is - a chain.  What the Walkabout lacks in décor and atmosphere it makes up for with cheap eats and reasonable drinks.  My advice is to keep walking

Zebrano London

Zebrano
14-16 Ganton Street
London Wif 7bt
0207-287-5267

Hours:
Upstairs Café 11-11 Daily
Downstairs Bar 5-12 Mon-Wed
5-1am Thursday And Friday
7-1 Am Saturday
Sunday By Event Only

Zebrano is a sumptuous cocktail lounge hidden below bustling Carnaby Street. This sultry drinking den is the epitome of luxurious relaxation. Deep red and black décor create a remarkably sexy atmosphere.

The clientele primarily consists of young movers and shakers, businessmen, and a sprinkling of model-types to keep things interesting.  This is not the place to let down your hair, but it is perfect for posing and sneaking a seductive glance over your martini at an attractive patron across the room.  An abundance of intimate alcoves throughout the bar are ideal for catching up on juicy gossip.

Saunter up to the bar and request one of their delicious cocktails. Each concoction is painstakingly prepared by friendly and knowledgeable waiting staff. The drink presentation here is exceptional. No detail is overlooked and the exotic fruit garnishes are so perfect it seems almost a shame to eat them!

After perusing the extensive cocktail menu, I ordered a Lychee Gunman.  It was mild in flavour, and very refreshing as it lacked the sickly aftertaste that is common in many sweet cocktails.  Afterward, I opted for a Pear Martini.  The pear puree completely masks the flavour of the vodka making it dangerously drinkable! -2 October 2006
