Nightclubs in London
..Into the club or out of the club. Depends on your looks and behaviour I guess.If you recall, two reviews ago I started with the evening in Loungelover and referenced a flock of hens that were there- now after popular demand I'm continuing the story. Soâ€¦.not your typical hen party (they did have it at Loungelover after all !;-) - very classy, sophisticated, good looking - anyway too good to turn an invite down (note how I'm carefully constructing the imagery here of me having a quiet drink with a buddy and getting harassed by a bunch of women to follow them into a club - I believe it's called 'poetic license'). Anyways, you guys were not there so it may even have been true.On to Cuckoo - I'm not a great fan of central London clubs. Don't get me wrong, most of the times I go I have a great time, but they're not really high on my priority list. Usually it's the result of earlier randomness rather than some careful planning. For example, last time I was in this particular venue it was called 'The Stork Rooms', the year was 2001 and Freddy Ljungberg had a pink Mohecan - I remember that cause he was there.Anways, on with Cuckoo. The music is good, mainstream club music, mixing the popular hip-hop and R&B, flowing on to house and throwing in the occasional, discordant (relatively) Lenny Kravitz. Other than the Â£20 entrance fee, which is market rate I guess, but still a bit questionable when compared with other options, the drinks are also reasonably priced. The best part was the Greek bar dude, who provided a round on the house. This was the second time on that night that I was surprised to find a fellow countryman behind the bar, but again this is the subject of another review, although I may refrain from that one as some people may take offence.Typical west end clubbing crowd, a bit more on the upmarket side, with plenty of beautiful women. Overall friendly atmosphere and good attitude from the staff. If you are looking to party late in Central London, then this is one of the better places to do so.May be a bit tricky to get in on a busy night, so find a friend or someone to get you on the guest list if you can.
