03/07/11: For many people, Pride night couldn’t just finish when the sun rose over London’s sparkling spires, and so huge after-hours party Beyond saw record queues of insatiable ravers flock to its legendary gates to round the morning off in style. Inside were the good and the bad, the beautiful and the damned, for this one exceptional night where both Area and next door venue Barcode Vauxhall were joined as one through their large decked chill-out area. Beautiful muscled boys were everywhere you looked, dancing in each of the packed rooms and pulling off their tops, whilst sensational Beyond resident DJs and some amazing guests spun irresistible mixes over both venues. If you ever needed a rest from the crazy dancing and partying inside, then of course the huge smoking garden made the perfect place to rest and enjoy a drink in the early morning sun – even as the queues were still arriving outside! Beyond well and truly smacked it again for one incredible night.
