Surya Club/ West / Hubie

Post by BLista » Sun Aug 24, 2008 4:31 am

Surya Club - pentonville road Kings Cross

read a really bad review (flange) of this place and wasn't too plussed about it but i have to totally disagree and say that this is a proper wicked little venue

weird shiz fo sho - trim little bar upstairs and weird shit down stairs! the main "dance" room is one wall lined with CD's as wallpaper(musta been hundreds) lazers all around and butterflies made of 7" and 12" vinyls(very pretty/clever) attached here and there. Some people couldn't resist taking them home they were so lovely.........

Its a little out of the way so no passing traffic but i really liked it as an out of towner

there's a kitsch room at the back and the toilets are odd, plus some hydroponic 3ft by 3ft room which is like a window halfway down the corridor - but because of the oddness i really liked the layout - it has all the makings of a great little club.

anyways - reason for the thread - I saw Hubie play for the first time tonight and was properly impressed. seen lots of DJ's off here play out and always liked it but i was particularly impressed with his tune selection - not blamming out obvious tunes and set a real groove to the start of the evening. you hear a lot of the same stuff being churned out, but - big respect to Hubie for starting off a (West) night which consisted of DJ's reknowned for a certain flavour and keeping it different enough but exactly locked to the flava of the night.

:bo: to you fella

awww thanks deano moite :D :lurve:

The cheque's in the post ;) :lol:

Had lots of fun, big ups to Steelz, Hatch and Harry for having me down :bo:

Pity there wasn't a massive crowd, but I'm sure with time this place will fill up with plenty of mongs on a regular basis :)

Highlight of the night was Kinky Mong trying to prove that wasn't Ashleyne from big brother dancing next to us by shouting out her name, only to be proved wrong :lol: :app:

B lista great to meet you hope you like my poorly mixed CD and i'll pass that money to Deet's

Goes to show how long it has been as i don't even know anyone from NSB anymore....

The Club is done out well and could have the worckins to be a great little venue... maybe a Skanks night :chin:

anyway enjoyed the music, drinks wernt over priced and free entry can't ask for to much more

Until the next one

Would just like to know why you think it's nonsense as an eco club Em?

Glad you liked the club Deano ;) Got some proper good nights coming up with worldwide DJs hosting their own nights and promotions. Lots of different music and some very special guests. Club launch is on the 20th of September, keep the date free people :)

erm, because buying loads of pens and cds from wh smith and making furniture out of them does not constitute saving the environment? nor des filling the place with tv screens showing the cricket and messages such as '7 out of 10 journeys to work are by car' right. thanks for that surya!

the dancefloor idea was ok, but it doesnt really work unless it is rammed. and maybe it was on saturday, but if it wasnt then thats not helping either!

if it is doing stuff i dont know about then feel free to correct me, i found it hugely patronising though.

I think she sussed it was me who shouted despite my perfect nonchalant turn away :oops:

I also though it was a really nice venue, was pretty cheap for rounds there as well. But I'll have to agree with the sentiment that having four big plasma screens and a shit load of lights left on in empty rooms does outweigh the eco benefits of non-flushing urinals and decorations made of paper cups.
