    Im looking for a suitable venue for a 150-200 capacity event, preferably in london but open to other areas. Ideally will have a system installed (i have a 12k rig if not)......Anyone recommend any where?

    Are you looking to hire the whole club or just one room? If you just want a room maybe look at Fabric or Cable? Cos lets face it, if your gonna do it, do it right :D

    yes. Nice small intimate venue, but doesn't feel overcrowded.

    Used to not be able to move in that place. Think the bad weather has thinned the numbers out a bit. When i was going Shogun and Viper like mid last year you couldnt move. Definately not as bad anymore, but like i say, probably the bad weather keeping people away.

    Complaining about a rave being filthy? Especially a rave thats held in a car park... lol.

    well yeah, but it was either comfy white trainers or horribly uncomfortably brown shoes.

    tbh, getting a bit dirty wasn't my main concern, although i don't expect a popular indoor venue to be littered with muddy puddles and leaky ceilings.

    it was mostly the sound, drinks prices and moshing that got on my tits.

    i actually enjoyed suffolk street. yeah the ground was dirty but i thought the sound was sick! last shogun was actually busier at the back than the front. As for moshing cunts, thats the people not the place, but yeah allow the moshing!

    anyway, you could try and piggy back on a nigh like wefearsilence or something at cable? maybe see if you could host the bar or something?

    It's weird they can't get a regular late licence? They normally have for NYE & other 'special' occasions. Fair play re the bar spend doe..

    How about the East Village basement? Or the lower level of Plan B?

    Is Plastic People still going..

    I went Cafe 1001 when Stu was DJing there and it's a good venue with a decent system and concrete is also a decent, intimate venue
