As usual on a Saturday (most nights these days) there was an absolutely massive queue.. so we spent the 20 minute wait chatting with a random group of fun Norwegian people who had heard about the place and were coming for the first time. Inside it was totally heaving, the bar was a mess and the Norwegians were perplexed at how this was supposed to be fun.. well I don't mind, I just love the atmosphere there and what a random mix of wild people. Tons of fashion students, various partiers converging from other nearby bars, lots of women and the occasional straight boy in awe of the place.
They recently moved the DJ booth right next to the toilets entrance and this has created a little dancefloor inbetween the booth and the bar, with people flailing like mad on it. I'm not sure who was spinning but the DJ was thrusting himself out of and over top of the DJ booth, wearing this weird get up that included sunglasses and a hulahoop. Stayed until the end chatting with randoms out front until 4:30AM and then hit the Beigel Bake on Brick lane for some nourishment on the way home.
