Sunday 30th November
The last EVER PYT @ Ghetto
Say farewell to Patrick Lilley’s RnB bash. It’s not coming East with the Ghetto. Late license cheap drinks and more fun than a party in Beyonce’s thong.
Monday 1st December
The last Frat Party in Soho.. Its ‘NERD’ frat party

Tuesday 2nd December
The last EVER Don’t call me Babe
Come and say goodbye to the Legend that is Babe at the Ghetto because it’s not going east. This Club’s been around since before the Ghetto was even there. So let’s see Dusty O off in Style.
Wednesday 3rd December
The last ‘Calling all Tribes’ @ Ghetto Soho
Buster Bennett and K-tron’s (All You Can Eat) cutting edge night always belonged out East and out East is where it’s going so enjoy the last night of art-fashion-beats in Soho while you can.
Thursday 4th December
The last ‘Miss-shapes’ @ Ghetto Soho.
Don’t worry this popular indie-pop-electro mash-up is coming with us for two floors of fun (and the ladies will benefit from 6 new toilets rather than the 2 they used to have) and yes ALL the drinks will still be £2... ALL night.
Friday 5th December

The first club to put on the Scissor Sisters in the UK ,as well as countless stars of the electronic music scenes both here in London and New York. Expect guest DJ’s and a night to remember.
Saturday 6th December
Last Wigout in Soho Falconberg Court, Soho, London
It’s been creating a queue around Soho square for over 8 years now and although we know its going to be just as successful in our new home if not more this is still going to be an emotional goodbye. With pretty much half of Soho counting themselves as regulars we advise getting there early for this one folks.
Please arrive early on all nights to guarantee entry and avoid disappointment
There will be giveaways and surprises EVERY night including drinks vouchers and guestlist passes for the spanking new Ghetto in Old street. We’ll have drinks promotions on all week, because just like the Manic Street Preachers said (and Aldi for the matter) “Everything must go”
Expect silly prices, live performances, guest DJ spots and some old familiar faces as we prepare for our Soho swansong. Free and cheap entry tickets available from Trash palace as usual.

Information on New Ghetto opening party and first week of parties
The New Ghetto is located at 58 Old St London EC1V 9AJ.
The new Ghetto is situated on the corner of Old Street &Golden Lane, 5 mins walk from the Tube. Take Exit 6 from Old St station and look for the Spire of St Luke’s Church the new Ghetto is opposite that. It’s far enough away from the main drag of Shoreditch to mean it’ll keep out “the Shoreditch wankers” but close enough to the action to attract the Ghetto kids. Its 5 mins on the bus from the George and Dragon (buses 55 or 243) or a 10 min walk from Hoxton Sq and since people are seemingly happy to walk 40 mins to The Russian bar from Shoreditch that’s not far at all. It’s location on the cusp of Hoxton and Clerkenwell actually puts it closer to Soho than you’d think and is just a 10 min bus ride away (Bus 55 from Tottenham Ct Rd ) 7 mins in a cab or you can if you’re feeling active walk it from Tottenham Ct Rd in 30 mins.
The new Ghetto is also close to two other tubes, Farringdon and Barbican.
So it’s easy to reach via the Northern Line (old St) District, Metropolitan and Hammersmith and City lines (Farringdon/Barbican)
About the new The Venue
Upstairs.. Trash Palace
A Crazy old Pub with wood panelling, deer heads and what can best be described as an ‘odd glamour’. Trash Palace will open for happy hour at 5.30 and play host to a range of crazy nights and events all of it owns plus it’s linked to Ghetto Downstairs and allows for the two clubs to team up giving two rooms of entertainment and four loos. There’s an internet juke box with access to over 2 million songs, free vintage video games. A conservatory that can be booked for birthdays and private bashes (it’s free to book and you get free bubbly and free entry tickets to Ghetto downstairs) plus all the cheap drink deals you’ve come to expect. Check out the Plastic Poetry Plants in the Conservatory (but if you take a poem you have to leave a poem in return). Head to Trash Palace first to meet your friends and grab free entry tickets or cheaper entry tickets to all of Ghetto’s nights and bask in the plush bizarre surroundings. There are even free tickets from Trash Palace to all our Ghetto nights downstairs, including Friday and Saturday nights ‘Kill Your Pets’ and Wigout. Just ask the barstaff. The rule is, arrive early!
Ghetto. Opening at 10pm (sometimes earlier) the new Ghetto has the familiar red walls and plush white leather seating you’ll recognise all though it’s all been stepped up a notch. The seating is plusher and more comfy. There’s new lighting and a state of the art sound system and brand new 80’s inspired loos. On Busy nights it will link with Trash Palace upstairs allowing for two floors of fun and two rooms of different tunes with two completely different vibes.
There are 2 loos and a separate disabled loo downstairs and two loos upstairs making for 8 cubicles and 2 urinal walls in total. A big improvement on the naff 2 for woman and 2 for men smelly old Soho loos. Downstairs they have an 80’s twist and upstairs they’re inspired by Victorian watering holes. Oh did we mention these are brand spanking new and gorgeous?
