Without doubt, London's club scene is the most vibrant and diverse in Europe. Not only do the city's clubs have a great mix of music, but on occasion play host to some of the world's best and hottest DJs. Not surprising then that even the most loyal clubber has to keep apace of what's going on. Whatever your musical tastes, be it trance, garage, techno, indie, R'n'B or good old fashioned 70s/80s nostalgia, it's easy to find a venue in which serious fun can be had. Check out Cargo London nightclub, known as one of the most favored bars and clubs. This refitted railway arch in London's Shoreditch is located probably one of the London's best club venue right now, possessing a sound system of unequalled clarity for both rock and dance music. Opened in November 2000, Cargo is an integral part of London nightlife and attracts twenty to thirty-something media-types; Uni students and young professional types to get down and party. Its high class facilities together with the original brick work give it that Fabric-like feel. When you add the fact that the venue has seen many of the UK finest DJs on their turntables its no wonder that Cargo London club already has such a well established name. Housed underneath three viaducts named M, D and F (short for music, drink and food), the regular events at Cargo London nightclub include Raison D'etre (Soul), Come Shake the Whole (electro, German) and Ill Commotion (old-skool hip-hop). Recent events have included filming for five and Channel 4, music video clips, fashion shows and product launches.
It is worth going to the Cargo club night early, even if it means sitting around a half-empty bar for an hour. There is normally no queue before 11 pm and the door-charge is half price. By 11pm when the local pubs close, the place gets packed so tight one can hardly dance. By 11.30 the queue outside goes as far as down the road with punters waiting to get in. The restaurant at Cargo is reasonably priced with finger-food snacks and light meals, including chips, small hummus platter, pork skewers and more. The dress code for crowd at Cargo London nightclub is a mixture of short-sleeve shirts or tee-shirts worn with jeans for boys, and strappy little tops worn with blue jeans and pointy-toed shoes for girls, rather than trainers. Some girls have dressy attires on like sexy low-backed dresses with evening bags tucked under the arm.
