Bussey Building Guestlist & Table Bookings
This place was nearly demolished in 2007, but good thing it wasn't; otherwise where would we go for some of London's greatest parties? Before you answer that with the name of your favourite club, shut up; Bussey Building is fantastic. Also known as the Bussey Warehouse or the CLF Art Café, this place has it all. Theatre, paintings, drawings, live music, dancing, you name it and Bussey Building has it. Like a grocery store of clubbing, only this one you can buy booze after hours; you go in for one thing and spend hours doing another.
What used to be a warehouse that made cricket bats has been a hot clubbing site and entertainment venue for a few years now. This place is pretty big; it can fit almost 1,000 people inside, though it's not like they're all crammed into one room. Bussey building has quite a few rooms that can be rented out, and often there is even more than one party going on. It also comes with a 5,000 square foot rooftop, making it ideal for watching any fireworks that happen to be nearby. Just make sure you're not so drunk you fall of trying to grab at the fireworks. That'd make an interesting story in The Evening Standard.
Now you think that a building as old as this with such rich history would be reserved for only the educated and that it would only hold hipster snobs? Far from the truth, Judgey McJudgerson! This club is very laid back and unpretentious, and great for a place to find like-minded people who are out to have a good time. Just make sure that you are dressed right; the door staff are nice and friendly, but will not be afraid to turn you away if you're not dressed in smart casual. But hey, at least they'll be polite about it.
Electronic music of any kind is Bussey Buiilding's speciality. Drum and bass, house, techno; if you're an electronica junkie than you absolutely must make Bussey House a stop on your clubbing list. Sometimes they throw in a bit of soul and 90's hits, but their main focus is anything synthesized through a computer. And they often have guest DJs, so you know you won't be hearing the same-old same-old every weekend.
Bussey Building has all of your standards and favourites; wines, beers, spirits, and all of the common cocktails and mixers are here. So maybe the drinks will be same-old same-old, but you could always mix it up and have a different mixer every night; you're in Bussey Building, may as well get creative; just remember that green is not a creative colour. Drinks here are affordable; on occasion they have specials like £2.50 drinks all night, giving you more than enough reason to take a hammer to your piggy bank that holds all of your loose change.
Bussey Building is where you go when you want to get it all done in one place. Want to catch some theatre? Catch an evening show and then go clubbing. Maybe you want a comedy night? Laugh your arse off, then go for a drink and hit the dance floor. Or just come here from the start and groove to some great beats while hanging out with genuinely nice people sipping on a reasonably priced cocktail. Unless you're so unreasonably picky that you can't be bothered, Bussey Building is your next destination for a great night out clubbing in London.
