yes, i am not personally dissing adam or anything like that, just being honest! they would do better having the energy generating dancefloor and things like that but get rid of all the preachy nonsense and plasma screens which make it all seema bit daft and hypocritical.

also how does having decorations made of paper cups help? unless they were used ones?! which i very much doubt they were!

Surya is the world’s first “ecological” nightclub – and it’s already getting flak from Friends of the Earth.

A spokesman said the club’s activities “are not compatible with Friends of the Earth’s work to promote low-carbon living, so we are concerned­ to see the company has used our logo without permission”.

But most have been won over by the efforts of Dr Earth, aka Andrew­ Charalambous, and his Club4Climate brand – despite­ the fact he’s really a 35-year-old property developer and qualified barrister worth £100m, has stood as a Conservative parliamentary candidate and worked for Boris Johnson’s mayoral ­campaign.

look, its a good little club for a laugh, but eco it certainly is not! sorry if saying that makes it sound as if adam is a wanker but i don't think he is?! unless he too is alaso a 35 year old tory property developer using the current obsession with being 'green' to get people to go clubbing and get drunk.

a review from another site, from someone who presumably does not know adam, just to make everyone double sure i wasnt just saying all this to be a bitch!!

......Now, as all who know me will testify, I am no stranger to hyperbole but on this occassion my compulsive exageration has been rendered redundant. I've been to, nay worked in, some festering ratholes in my time but this place really is the worst club in the world. The proprietor, Dr Earth (who incidentally looks just like Dr Evil), clearly demonstrates his contemptful cyncism and utter lack of comprehension of environmental issues with charming touches such as giant plasma screens adorning the walls, a chandelier made from brand new biros and Cristal Champagne on the menu for £350 a pop. There is a bizarre display of potted plants in a cubby hole under a sign that reads "Hydroponics, the new horticulture, in which plants can be grown without soil or daylight under hydroponic light. These plants, which are in soil by the way and not a hydroponic system in which plants are grown in water, under a massive (and clearly energy inefficient) light. Of course, how stupid of me - I was thinking that daylight was an environmentally friendly way of growing plants when all along what I really needed was a whacking great multi-kilowatt lamp to be truly green. Even if you are not bothered by this hideous hypocrisy and poorly executed gimmickery and you need another reason not to visit this dump I can furnish you with an excellent one. The toilets cubicles are see-through. Yes, you did read correctly, the toilet cubicles are see-through! Using those facilities was one of the more humaliating experiences of my adult life. I could go on about the failings of this place ad nauseum but I must prioritise in order to let someone else have someone else have a nice, cathartic moan about this monstrosity so I will leave you with one final observation. Who in their right mind wants to be reminded that "every three seconds a child dies from poverty", while joyfully bowing to the twin gods of self-indulgence and consumerism in the name of fun ... not me mate.

An environmental charity and 'ecological nightclub' are involved in a war of words over a fund-raising bash in Ibiza. Club4Climate, an eco clubbing brand that SmartPlanet's written about and filmed, is holding a party on 27 August which it claims will raise money for Friends of the Earth USA. In reply, the charity has issued a damning statement saying "aircraft emit large quantities of heat-trapping gases, and the idea of flying somewhere to have a party is antithetical to fighting global warming."

The heated exchange follows on the heels of Club4Climate (C4C) using the logo of Friends of the Earth (FOE USA) without the charity's permission. The C4C website says "Friends of the Earth in no way supports or endorses the activities of C4C, but we're going to give them the money anyway."

The FOE USA statement notes "Friends of the Earth does not support Club4Climate and has not given it permission to use its logo. We are not accepting financial contributions from Club4Climate."

What were the beds made of sand that you could heat up all about, that's what I want to know.

Did Hubie try to snort any of it after I left? :crack:

i think that should put the matter to bed. i would hate to think that i couldnt give an opinion on a venue just becuase someone on here has a vested interest in it.
