Night in Balham (Firefly, Exhibit, The Clarence)

Saturday 20th October: I’m definitely more of a North/East London type when it comes to going out for some drinks, but sometimes, you just have to stay local and enjoy whatever it has to offer.  So first stop was Firefly, … Continue reading

Night in Shoreditch (Cargo and Drunken Monkey)

Saturday 6th October: Probably my quickest review ever: Cargo – don’t go unless you like paying extortionate prices for drinks, in a warehouse, surrounded by “out-of-towners” who are also idiots.  Shame, because it’s actually a cool-looking venue. Drunken Monkey – … Continue reading

Night on Oxford Street – 100 Club

Friday 24th August 2012: I’ve been to the 100 Club many times now and it will always be one of the best places to see live music.  Yes, it’s essentially a basement; it’s a bit grimy and probably hasn’t had … Continue reading

Friday 17th August:  Okay so I’m a little late in informing people about this place as it’s now finished, however, it will be reappearing soon.  So, better late than never right?! Flat Iron Steak and Cocktail Project was based in … Continue reading

Saturday 11th August 2012:  Free music!  Correction, free and awesome music, woop!  Hackney House is a great pop-up venue in the middle of “Tech City” in Shoreditch.  It has been host to various events from live music to comedy nights to … Continue reading

Night in Kings Cross (Smithy’s/Monto Water Rats)

Thursday 9th August 2012: Band night!  Oh how I love these nights! *said in a wistful, romantic way with hands clasped and eyes to the clouds*.  Tonight it was time to see Scars on 45, but first we stopped by … Continue reading

Night at King’s Road (Olympics)

Friday 27th August 2012: I stopped in at the Saatchi Gallery an hour before close, which was just enough time to have a quick squiz at the current exhibition, the contemporary focused Korean Eye 2012.  2000 emerging Korean artists submitted … Continue reading
