I never been to a club that was turning down black people in 2016... And I live in Atlanta, Georgia.

They literally were pulling black people from the line and letting all the white people in. I couldn't believe it. I can't even believe I'm writing this.

So they'll let in people who are...more

Not going to Cargo again anytime soon.more

Fun place in Shoreditch - affordable if you make it in before 10 on a Friday (quite easily done)

Found it a little strange that one of the rooms bans even small shoulder bags - I don't know anyone who wants to check in their valuables- and it seemed a shame that this prevented some of our party from staying together.

Music here is a great balance of classics and new chart stuff and three...more
