03/05/14: You know what your problem is? Y’all been doin the same ol’ thang every week after week. What you need is a li’l diversion, a li’l something to “spice” up your life, and no I ain’t talkin bout those past it bitches!
Sat night, we threw on our cha-cha heels and headed to Exilio, at The Latin Groove in Archway where the night got hotter, the talk got sweeter and the crowd got a helluva lot sexier; a hacienda hothouse of finger-lickin Electro-Latino beats fused with a tribute to Colombian superstars Grupo-Niche.
DJ/Promoter Gloria heated up the floor with heel-spinnin Reggeaton, Cumbia, Salsa, Merengue, Bachata and Vallenato that had the packed club of hombres, chicas and their lovers sashayin the night away. A cabana club with ‘La Familia’ vibe tucked in this corner of N19.
“We do it for the fun,” smiled our hostess Lina, 22. Eighteen years on and Exilio is the only club night for the Latino LGBT community and their friends.” We certainly weren’t short of friends there as no one was too shy to dance and more than happy to show us newbies how.
Now that we got the rhythm down, we’ll be back for more.
1 Archway Close, Archway, N19 3TD
