Steve writes "This Thursday will see the unofficial opening party for her majesty Queen Elizabeth 2nd's Diamond Jubilee at Contact in Barcode with a special 'pervormance' from Prince Hairy!!! Open 22.00 - 03.00 and just a fiver with the darkroom kindly donated by the Fitladz team."
Contact is picking up nicely with a very sexy crowd in last week.
Great news. The wonderful man behind Rudeboyz and Fitladz is sorting out boring old Thursdays with a proper s*x night. Thursdays have been a bit quiet of late so we're delighted.
Steve Darragh the promoter says "From the creators of Fitladz - Contact is the new weekly Thursday club for guys looking to make contact with like minded guys. The atmosphere is friendly and informal just like Fitladz on a Friday. The darkroom is just the same with a security personnel manning the entrance. Music is by Steven Geller who will be playing his trademark pumping house sound.
Everyone is welcome and at just £5 offers great value. Open 10pm-3am.
Barcode's rise and rise since Steve Darragh moved his suite of clubs there continues apace - the next new launch is Nitro on Sunday 16 October. It'll bring uplifting house from 7pm till late. We'd like to flag up Fitadz as a brilliant success there BTW - go, its really good and we love it! More below...
Big news for Vauxhall. Steve Darragh, promoter of Fitladz, Bodyshakers and Crunch (among his many ventures) is moving all three said clubs to Barcode. Fitladz will celebrate its fifth birthday there (entry via Goding Street) on Friday 12 August and then go weekly.
Barcode Soho was our first ever regular bar in London and we're gutted to see it gone. But we're pleased we don't need to now say Barcode Vauxhall as that was exhausting. It's been going FIVE years and really helped solidify Vauxhall as a proper place to go out. A bar and you get to keep your clothes on. Most of the time.
Anyhoo, "continue reading" for details of this Saturday's birthday bash and news on their new Friday nighter, React Now - Rich B, Hugh Stevenson and more. Yay!
