Been to Ministry of Sound twice now, 1st night I went was in May 2004 for Smoove night, buzzing night, great music and great atmosphere.
With STRICT security staff comencing entry you should feel quite safe within the club.
After paying entry and venturing down the "tunnel" into the club, you will sure enough get asked to join various mailing list groups... O2, Defected, Smoove etc...
Wander upstairs and you find the "VIP" Bar, closed to people who ain't got a UV Password on their hand, but if your're lucky to get in, then you will find a small seating area within this glass room, a further 2 private rooms which would have to be reserved.
Ministry has plenty of room, I think 5 in total, different themes in each, and god forbid that if you get bored, then you can always play on the GameBox's they have in 2 rooms.
2nd night I went, I was taking photos for a website.
Same thing, strict security, this time asking why we had camera etc...
Lack of communication maybe the thing in Ministry, but when all the problems were sorted, what can I say! HOUSE music sure is the best.
Demitri from Paris were DJing for Defected records and what a crowd!
Great music all night long, after the bars stop serving booze (about 3am) then you can dance upon the stone bars and get your groove on.
If you want a purely RNB Night then Ministry (on Friday's) it is.
House, well look for Sat nights and Defected nights.
Only down side to MOS is the lack of transport options afterwards,
Buses? none! Taxi - £10/£15 to get to Victoria
Illegal Taxis - Lots. Tube - Don't run til 5am, so unless your staying til crack of dawn, then you're stuck
