I really like Emporium. The inside of the building is lovely and furnished in a way that reinforces the unique style of the whole place - this has the opposite of a 'chain' feel. Lots of space but also a vibrant but relaxed feel. Children...More

What a fantastic night. With Mike Pantini on the decks playing all the best old school faves. We danced for 2 1/2 hours non stop!! Great atmosphere and fantastic bar service. The security guard from Khartoum (don't recall his name) was so polite, effective and...More
