Advantages: Safe atmosphere, Excellent UV lights
Disadvantages: Bouncers have a problem, Can get overcrowded on popular nights
Hello fellow clubbers, I have finally been to another club I can write about for dooyoo. Recently I have been going to more underground clubs that are not on the list.
Anyway, I will stop gibbering; I have been to three clubs this weekend and a bit tired. My boyfriend finally has his dream job and has got involved with flyering and promoting. I can just about keep up...
The Fridge has high ratings with me. I know I was keen on Camden Palace but the Fridge has now won my love.
Venue: Used to be a cinema so it has the perfect layout for a club. Big, capacity 1200, good condition and ultra trendy. There are UV lights everywhere, I was tripping out constantly because everyone’s teeth were glowing – and an unusual number of people were wearing white which made it ten times worse… The club is along Town hall parade in Brixton, and still looks like the cinema from the outside. This makes the inside very similar to Camden Palace but there aren’t as many staircases to get lost in. The sound system was just right, the speakers all faced the main dance floor so you could go upstairs and get away from it a bit. Upstairs is a balcony that overlooks the club, there’s loads of seats, and various spots to dance whilst looking over the balcony at the clubbers stompin on the stage. There are several bars, I can’t remember how many; I didn’t count, but there’s also a cafe so you can munch if you’re hungry! The toilets weren’t too bad, there was no bog roll anywhere but they weren’t too dirty. This is important you know!
Security: I have recently been hearing stories about the security here. There’s been talk of strict policies for drugs and rowdy bouncers who have actually assaulted the clubbers. Unfortunately, I did see a bit of this on Saturday, some bouncer who was blatantly bored, just stood by a door all night and punched the wall, glaring at anyone who annoyed him, includi
ng my boyfriend who was dancing near him. Apart from this, there were no searches when we came in which was good.
Music: The night we went to was called X – Static, which was hard house and hard trance, it was a record launch party and Lab 4 were there, (a live PA) who are truly amazing. I have generally heard that most nights are good at the Fridge. They also hold, Escape from Samsara (which is hard trance and techno every Friday), and are home to Pendragon, Logic and XLR8. They even hold a gay night monthly called Love muscle although it is not a gay club; they are quite varied in their styles of music.
Drinks were obviously expensive, but the atmosphere was wicked. There was a range of ages there, from about 17 to 30. Average age was probably 20’s so I was okay! Sometimes I feel extremely young in a club. The club on average opens at 10pm and closes at 6am. Prices range from £10 - £15 depending on the night. So if you can put up with the lairy bouncers, give it a go – I’m used to them now anyway!
