#JULIASAYS – Discerning scene musings from the princess of East London

In the depths of winter, doom and gloom can certainly come over us all of a sudden…this week I had a ‘weight lifting’ moment. I won’t go into too much detail but suffice to say said weight has lifted and I’m feeling all positive. Hope you’re well, dear readers, and ready for the week ahead!

I’ve got lots to tell you about all the regular hotspots and more! The pub that’s also a late night bar downstairs, The Queen Adelaide on Hackney Road, is also an art space called White Cubicle. On Thursday 25th they present the work of Jack O’Brien for an installation of his work from 9.30pm to 3am.

Friday at The Glory this Friday 26th is Stella’s (Get out of rehab) Meltdown! From 10pm till 2am join Stella for some major retox with Taylor Trash, Margo Marshall, Tayce and Cassandra hitting the stage for a ‘hot mess party’.
