“ 1 Leicester Square. On Saturdays. Info: 0207 287 6032 „
Situated on the corner of Leicester Square, Home is the best club in the area for banging trance and its cheap at half the price. !!TOP HINT!! I used my NUS student card at the paying booth and got in for cheap!!. Home is a small club compared to other super clubs but what it lacks in size it makes up for in atmosphere. The Club is clean, smart and very up-market although don't dress up smart to get in, One guy before me got refused because he was dressed in a suit and waistcoat!! If you like stairs then this club is suited to you. The stairs look like they have been dragged off the set of RED DWARF and swirly lights dominate the halls. The Unisex toilets are also a superb idea and the bouncers are very leinient towards stragglers waiting around in the toilets. Thee are five levels in the club, The Entrance is on the ground floor, the internet cafe on the second floor followed by the main dance floors intercepted by a VIP floor which has an opening onto the main dance floor on the third floor. The dance floors are packed solid throughout the club and there is no mess floating around at all. As soon as a bottle is dropped it it swept up. The downside to the club is that it closes at 3AM and that leaves alot of time floating around if you have to catch the first train in the morning.
This club is one of the best i have been to in London. I only paid £8 to get in with my student card on a friday. The music is banging and the atmosphere was incredible, and the drinks are reasonably priced too. all in all a super club, though one fault is that the dance floors are too small for the amount of people in there and another is that there is no room on the dance floors themselves or moving up and down the stairs.
Home is one of the greatest night clubs in Britain right ?, umm sort of. The atmosphere is great and every one there is extremely friendly and up for a laugh, event the usually stern faced staff. The three floors provide an excellent choice of music and the whole styling of the club gives it an ultra modern feel. Three floors I hear you cry, yes three floors, because if you aren't on the guest list only three of the floors are open to you. Yep you pay ten pounds to get in and even then only some of the club is open to you, pretty naff I'll think you agree. The only drinks you can get at the bars, apart from odd spirits, are bottled beers all of which are priced at £3.50. For some unknown reason most of the ladies there seem really frosty also and hey that is not just my experience. To be honest a much better club is Fabric. It costs a bit more to get in, but the partying goes on until 7am. Oh and it has a vibrating floor. Rock on.
After being to Home a number of times I am still a little unsure, yes it is good as an overall club, its decor varies from clever (booths with TVs showing the dance floor) to a half finished look depending on the floor visited. In theory the place is good with a floor dedicated to dancing, with a balcony for the 'watchers' and then other floors with places to dance and crash which create more a intimate atmosphere. There is still something about the club that screams 'half baked' though. The finish and panashe of a truely great 'superclub' is not quite there. The music on the other hand is defined again, by the floor you choose, the range suits the type of club it is - it varies from down right funky to harsh pumping rythyms - and with guest DJ line ups expanding to Paul Oakenfield being resident makes the club stand out.... that is if you can get in. I have heard from more than 1 person that the so called 'hosts' are more than a little harsh about who can and cannot enter, apparently you should 'know about the essence of the club' the slightest reason and they will be asking you who is DJing that night through to 'what do you call those things on your feet because they arent what I would say is fashionable'. So its down to choice, weighing the pro's and cons is difficult for this place but it has to be seen just for Homes idea of the 'superclub' for this millenium.
This club situated in Leicester Square get 5 full floors. Starting at the bottom, it gets more exclusive the higher you go. The 80's decor is a bit dull and could do with a change. It's been around for while. The DJ's are great, really know their stuff and broad range (electro house, leftfield breakbeat, deep tribal house), what more could you ask for? It's a big club, but not difficult to find your way around. Just remember what floor you are on. Keep an eye out for who's playing as hot surprises can happen. The place does not stay open as late as some others though.
