This new weekly night from the women behind TLC, Unicorn and the upcoming Lesbian Prom offers a local, fun night for all women who want to dance the night away.
Bang in the middle of Stoke Newington High Street, the venue is ground floor and basement based, with a cool, modern urban feel to it.
With toe-tapping, floor filling music, this event really starts to kick off at 11 as the women pour in.
The music, supplied by DJ Sandra D and guests, was a lively, eclectic mix reminiscent of Popstarz in its old school days, guaranteed to fill the floor.
Mostly under 25s, but a few of us in the older brackets too, there was a mix of women at the event and it definitely had a local feel to it, no wonder with the amount of LBQ women who live in the popular N16 locale. With no attitude or pretension present, it was easy to feel comfortable in the space and on the dance floor.
Hosts, Effi-Mai and Sandra chatted and mingled making everyone feel welcome.
All in all, a great event that deserves to become established as a regular fixture on the calendar.
