Abysmal club launch! Bought tickets for the opening a month ago and was really looking forward to seeing what the club had to offer.
Upon arrival we were greeted with the biggest queue I had ever seen. We waited in line for 2 hours, freezing and bored, with people pushing and shoving, until we finally reached the doors. At this point everyone was a little frustrated to say the least and people were coming out ranting that we shouldn't waste our time going in which offered no comfort after the length of time we had be waiting to enter into this 'club'.
Once we were in, we wanted to put our coats and bags in the cloakroom before entering inside, turns out we had to walk into the jam packed club and walk all about the houses over to the other side before we could do that, once again struggling to get through the crowds of people. Whoever thought it would be a good idea to put the cloakroom over the other side of the club is an absolute genius - way to go at making everyone's life that little bit harder!
Because we had no clue where we were going we ended up near the toilets. As usual there was a queue for the ladies which were in a terrible mess. The toilets were smelly, wet and blocked to the brim with toilet paper and other kinds of lovely treats.
After we got downstairs, we had a look at the bar which was surrounded by people, three lines deep in fact, making us decide against once again queuing for a ridiculous amount of time.
The music itself sounded good although it did sound a little muffled at times.
Obviously we knew that the club could hold a 4,500 capacity but it doesn't seem big enough to hold that many people and consequently, everyone was packed in like sardines with no room to breathe let alone dance.
All of this combined with the waiting time, that ruined my party spirit to begin with made us decide to leave after about 25 mins. We simply could not stick it.
A really shoddy attempt at opening a club. Stick to retail Arcad
