Issue 45 / 2012 CLUB VS CLUB THE ROXY 3-5 Rathbone Place, Marylebone, London, W1T 1HJ CORSICA STUDIOS SE17 1LB 4/5 Elephant Road, London. EVENTS With nights on every day of the week (except Sunday AKA Recovery Day) there is plenty to keep you coming back for more. Sounds are generally at the indier end of the spectrum, but DJs span genre gaps like Spiderman in tight jeans so there is something here for everyone. DRINK With such a variety of nights on offer prices differ, electronic music you'll ever have a chance to hear in London. With DJ heavy line ups, you'll probably want to check out the vibes on offer before you turn up and howl into the mixing booth, demanding Gangnam Style eight times in a row. I'm loath to describe any music as obscure, but here it is certainly 'specific'. EVENTS Corsica Studios showcases some of the best new but are certainly on the cheap side for central London and with 2-4-1 deals in full effect no one is complaining. The selection on offer isn't bad either, and considerably better than many student friendly clubs that only serve piss-weak beer and supermarket vodka. Go large or go broke with a variety of cocktail pitchers currently half price on all nights. Naughty! VIBES So relaxed it's barely standing, whether dressed up or dressed down, the crowds here have come to party in a friendly atmosphere. Always bustling and up for a good time- even midweek – The Roxy is a dependable favourite, much like an older brother who's happy to buy booze for you and won't tell mum or dad when you throw up. DRINK At under a fiver for a beer, it's neither the most expensive nor the cheapest venue in the world. But then you didn't just pay £15 to neck pint after soapy pint while your favourite DJs drone on in the background. Perhaps I'm underselling it. The beer is far from the standard fare, with premium tipples like Nastro Azzuro and Modelo on offer your taste buds have never known such delights in a club. VIBES Despite the underground feel and cutting edge music, the club remains thankfully free from pretension. GUESTLIST 15 7 TUNING IN INDIE SHUFFLE What is your type of music? Oldies or newcomers?
