Back in the day, they (whoever they are) used to say you received the “key of the door” when you turned 21. Then they would sing a little ditty about it to you as you died of embarrassment in front of all your friends and family. Whilst we have no idea what that means, we do know that The Edge on Soho Square certainly has the key to a successful bar! They celebrate 21 years lubricating Soho this weekend, and we salute the Soho stalwart… “And to many mooooooore!”

15/12/12 It’s all go at The Edge right now, and it seems that the weekend late license has given the famous Soho Square venue a seriously rockin’ party vibe. It’s great to have somewhere close, comfortable with just the right amount of cray to swing our handbag round in until long after the last tube has departed.

Kurt Cobain was riding the grunge wave to his doom, The Golden Girls were recording their last ever episode [salute], The Queen was just about to embark on her ‘Annus Horribilis’ and a new out ‘n’ proud gay bar was opening on the corner of Soho Square, soon to be frequented by the original generation of hardcore ravers, dropping by for their pre-gurnfest drinkage.
