Turnmills certainly has something a plethora of other clubs seem to lack - personality.
Sure it has a fairly tacky interior and bouncers who think they're god but what would normally put you off another place is forgotten about when you head down those steps and make your way into the club.
The size of the main room dictates how much you are going to like the night. It's far from huge and shaped a little awkwardly especially with the bar at the back. But it's personal and intimate, with mostly friendly people and a good sound system.
I've been to Turnmills three times now and for three separate types of nights. It gets great DJs through the week, a far cry from some of the other clubs which vary so much that in the one night you can be elated one minute, frustrated the next.
With the line-ups Turnmills attracts, you can get over the vices of this place.
