Friday 20th January: Men Inc. Mr Leather UK 2017

Men Inc. is the dead sexy Friday night at Eagle London, bringing old-school, cruisey, Faith-era-George-Michael vibes to this corner of Vauxhall. And this week, they’re looking for the Mr Leather UK 2017! If you think you look the man in tan, you can parade your stuff in front of the judges and you could walk away with the coveted title. They’re celebrating their 30th year of the competition and plenty of previous winners and current holders will be all in attendance, so there’ll be opportunity for gawping at leather-bound beasts as well if you don’t fancy competing yourself.

Men Inc. Mr Leather UK 2017 is on Friday 20th January at Eagle London, 349 Kennington Lane, SE11 5QY, 9pm-late, Free Entry.

 

Friday 20th January: Douchebag

Grab that shower head and swill yourself silly: it’s Douchebag! Purveyors of faggy synth, wonky pop and anything even just the tiniest bit queer, Mikey XCX and Laurance Del Rey take over Dalston Superstore to get the gays of E8 shimmying like CSS are still together. You what? They’re actually still together? Don’t believe you. Anyway, electro pop sensation Ronika brings her record collection down to the basement, while Ruby Waters spins upstairs for another unmissable, kissable night!

Douchebag is on Friday 20th January at Dalston Superstore, 117 Kingsland High Street, E8 2PB, 9pm-3am, Free Before 11, £5 After.

 

Friday 20th January: Blocheads

Down in East London’s sweatiest, sexiest basement, Blocheads gets your weekend off to a salacious start, always drawing in an achingly hot and up-for-it crowd.  Grab a can of Red Stripe and dance your legs down to the knees to some stellar disco, house and techno from DJs Martyn Fitzgerald, Stevie B and Hifi Sean, whose latest house stomper ‘Testify’ has just been EVERYWHERE recently. Maybe he’ll play it. Maybe he won’t. We’re not clued up on the etiquette of DJs playing their own music.

Blocheads is on Friday 20th January at  East Bloc, 217 City Road, EC1V 1JN, 11pm-6am, £5 Before 1am, £10 After.

 

Saturday 21st January: XXL

Bears, cubs, otters, and all those who worship at their hairy feet: get yourselves down to XXL! Why? Well, think of all the clubs you’ve been to before, and now think BIGGER. Everything’s just bigger at XXL. Big, bolshy beats. Big, cavernous dance floors. Big, burly blokes. Everything you want. Everything you need. Everything you DESERVE. Saturday night at XXL is always a scream, and if you can’t wait until the weekend to get that fuzzy fix, then they also have a slightly more laid-back session on the Wednesday night.

XXL is on Saturday 21st January at Pulse, 1 Invicta Plaza, South Bank, SE1 9UF, 10pm-7am, £10 Members, £15 Guests


XXL Midweek is on Wednesday 18th January at Pulse, 1 Invicta Plaza, South Bank, SE1 9UF, 9pm-3am, Members Free, Guests £5.

 

Saturday 21st January: Home

* NEW NIGHT AT THE BLOC KLAXON * Home’s the brand new night to hit up Camden’s finest gay bar and will bring you the best in 90’s/ 00’s RnB, Hip-Hop and Pop all night long. It’s gonna be a twerk down memory lane, back to a time when rappers with one name reigned supreme, all Nelly, Jade, Ciara, Eve, Ashanti, that sort of thing. DJ Big John Freeman, the guy behind WORK and Bounce, is the special guest DJ tonight and students get in for free before 1am, just in case you need a break from the library. God knows you need it.

Home is on Saturday 21st January at The Bloc, 18 Kentish Town Road, NW1 9NX, 10pm-3am, Students Free Before 1am, £5.

 

Sunday 22nd January: Orange

Remember the phone company Orange? Getting 2-for-1 cinema tickets to go and see Music and Lyrics and no Kevin Bacon in their adverts? Well, you don’t need to, it’s irrelevant. This isn’t the same Orange. This is a way better Orange. Sunday nights down in the gritty arches of Fire with the best freshly squeezed house music from the hottest DJs, all hosted by that mad’un Glendora! Dance for 8 hours and make those Monday morning commuters contemplate their dull lives as you flounce out at 7am. Only Orange could make the Sabbath this decedent.

Orange is on Sunday 22nd January at Fire, South Lambeth Road, SW8 1SP, 11pm-7am, £7 Before 1am, £11 After Adv, £13 OTD.
