    We will be there!

    I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone!

    Edit: Has anyone been to this club before? I've never been to a London conference, so I might be a bit blonde if the parties have been there previously, but I'm interested to know what this place is like? Is it a bar or a nightclub etc?

    Orchids OK. Its right in the between Leicester Square and Picadilly Circus and fairly easy to find (its next door to HMV and the Trocadero centre if I remember correctly), although its just a light wood double door and a very very small velvet rope outside.

    The club is underground and its quite nice inside - plenty of swooshy curtains and what not, and a fairly large bar off to the right. It has a reasonable sized dance floor and a few nooks and crannies and a bit of seating.

    Music is normally funky house to deep house.

    Its not Kensington Roof Gardens but then its not Strawberry Moons. Renee i would say its 80% club/20% bar mix.

    HTH

    Talking

    I'm gonna get sooooo drunk I only come to a conference every two or three years for good reason - everytime I attend, I feel the need to hide from the forums for three months after

    Luckily, I have the (very strict) gf tagging along to ensure I don't do anything ridiculously stupid.

    Thanks for the awesome description mate...

    Fictionnet - I guess its not a strip joint.. I'm sure there are plenty around london though...

    I will be watching out for you... must be pretty entertaining watching you get drunk if you have to stay away for 3 months afterwards....

    Cheers

    If you do fancy a strip joint, there arent really that many around any more - the police managed to close down a lot of clip joints over the last year (the kind of place that charges 100 for a beer etc).

    Stick to the more well known places - Sophisticats, Spearmint Rhinos, Stringfellows, Secrets etc. (anywhere beginning with 'S' it would seem!

    Avoid The Windmill - it might look grand (and it is very plush inside.... um, so I have been told), but its expensive - like 4 figures expensiv), or if you fancy a walk on the wilder side, some of the pubs down Shoreditch Way (nearest tube Liverpool St Station on the Central Line apparently...) still have the old 'pound in a pint glass' systems going on and can be quaint, or if you can get in, try The Griffin down Farringdon Way.

    Reviews ahoy!

    http://www.viewlondon.co.uk/clubs/la...ondon-171.html

    I can review other things as well if anyone is interested! Anyone want to know about the theatre, cinema, comedy clubs or gigs? Just ask

    Actually maybe, some of us London Affs should start posting up a 'Rough Guide To London' including not only places to go, but also the things that you *shouldnt* do in London (especially after dark) - its very easy to get ripped off. A drink in London can cost between 3 and 15 for the same drink, depending on where you go!

    Neil Spearmint Rhinos is one of the most over priced places in London, we went after the awards last year and the bill was about 4000 it was sick but a great night.
