    Went to the club for the first time on Saturday 7th June. What a fantastic night! Great venue, great people and a very laid back erotic atmosphere. We'll definitely be going back.

    Went for the first time last Saturday. First club in ages where we haven't been "pestered" or had a snail trail of men when going just to the toilet! Staff amazing and facilities awesome.

    Our first visit on Saturday. We were very nervous but we were soon put at our ease. The bar staff were a good source of information on how to make the most out of the evening. We will be back.

    I love it here. I love the spar, the bar, play rooms, the sexy vibe. Mostly I love the fact that the staff make me feel so comfortable it's the only club I will go to alone as a single girl. X
