      Disadvantages

      Club 414 is quite a hardcore club. Now what I mean by this is it is for proper clubbers. It opens on a Friday at 10pm and doesn't close til 6am Mon morning. Obviously there are different do's going on over the weekend but it must make quite a bit of money. The club is VERY small. Basically it is a converted house, hence the no. 414. If you are claustrophobic then don't go here. They pack everyone in and the atmosphere is wicked. Generally 414 does Hard house, hard trance and techno nights. It is most popular as an after-club so there will be more people there on a Sat or Sun morning rather than at night. I went to XLR8 on a Sun morning. It cost £5 and is the best Hard house night (or morning, XLR8 normally do afterparties only) in the world. It's not commercial and does everything for you, the clubber, rather than making money. (plus my boyfrined works for them so I am always there!) 414 has a small dancefloor, with no platforms or podiums. The DJ box is slightly raised but there is a real family atmosphere in this club. There is an upstairs with a chill out area, serving hatch which sells cornflakes and endless amounts of tea and coffee. A goldfish tank and a couple of arcade machines. That's about it. Now I did say it was small, but it's dark and the sound system is enough to blow your head off. The security is awful though. They are really strict, constantly walking around with torches looking for drugs. My boyfriend got chucked out (of his own club) for being naughty in the toilets. You have to remember that XLR8 was the night (morning) but the bouncers come with the venue so even though my boyfriend was supposed to be working they didn't care. My mate and I kept going in and out to find my boyfriend who was hiding outside and the bouncers started getting stressed. They said we weren't allowed to keep running in and out. Fair play, they could have asked us politely though. I just apologised to him and got a wink in return. Oh dear... Well, I can deal with bouncers, they are the same everywhere I go. They think they have some great power or something. Apart from the usual of London drink prices and stressy bouncers this is a quality lil club. If you're not claustrophobic...
