Yates’s stands out from the herd

THIS WEEK IN 1988: Nightclubs refuse acid house parties

Have your say

When walking out of Tiger Tiger at 2am last Saturday I, pretty much, had this week’s column written in my head. S

Some cobwebs have formed since then, but one thing has stuck firmly in my mind, which is just how good the feline Gunwharf venue is.

They say variety is the spice of life and they definitely have that. Although, instead of ripping it up to the most cutting edge dance in The Club, I spent most of my time skanking to ’70s and ’80s party classics, expertly fuelled by bar lady and groovy girl Kirsty, in Groovy Wonderland.

Call me sad but sometimes, and being a stag do this was one of those times, you need some cheese.

All I can say is, the light-up dance floor and disco balls did it for me.

In the same vein, tonight, Pure in Guildhall Walk Rewind to the ’90s. Not only will you hear all the best dance, house and r ‘n’ b music from the ’90s, but it will be mixed and mashed up with the hits of today.

Entry before 10.30pm is completely free. Bring your student or military ID after and it’s £2 for the rest of the night. Everybody else can expect to pay more. Many drinks are just £1.50.

The club night that sees some of the best DJs in Portsmouth guest mixing is back tomorrow night as The Wolf Cub Club invades The Edge of the Wedge.

They have a record bag full of the best alternative and indie tunes from now and yesteryear to present to you via some serious bass bins. From the Foo Fighters to Friendly Fires and the Kinks to Chromeo, it’s the place to be for fans of the scene.

The night runs from 9pm until 2am and entry is completely free.

Lastly, Guildhall Walk’s Yates’s adds to the fun supplied for the students in the city as they present Pop Rocks on Thursday night.

This one stuck out, not just for the £1.75 selected drinks and 2am late opening, but for a slightly unusual attraction. We’ve seen bucking rodeo bulls in the walk before but Yates’s have gone all out and want to see if you can beat the rodeo sheep.

This is another excellent free night in the city and last entry is 12.30am.
