Trendy teen disco for 14—18 year oids. 50p tickets should still be in circulation.


I Expansions at the Warehouse. llpm—3.3(lam. £2. For hip-hop and house enthusiasts only. Wednesday may not be the best night for clubbing. but Expansions have built up a small band of enthusiastic followers with their sheer consistency in playing the latest and best in the respective genres. Well worth a visit. especially if you just want to dance!


I The Alhambra 8pm—midnight. Free!

I Go West at ('leopatras. l0.30pm—2.30am. £2 (£1 with ticket).

I 80! Night at Henry Afrikas. l().30pm—3.30am. £1 before 11pm; £4 after. Worth going early. methinks!


I Breathless Potterrow. 8pm— 1 am. Students £1 .50 guest 50p with matric card. Since the last review Breathless has managed not just to draw a good crowd but also to encompass more up to date club sounds. playing tracks from groups such as NWA. De la Soul and Lisa Stanfield. making this student club one ofthe bestof its kind. Maybe the fact that they have the cheapest bar prices in town has something to do with Breathless not losing its identity of also being fun.

I The Deep The Mission. 10.30pm—3am. £2. Fora club w hose playiist hasa reputation for being one of the best around. it‘s a shame that the Edinburgh clubgoers don‘t seem to support it more. The Deep is one ofth best clubsin Edinburgh during the week. so go down there and have a rave!

I Housaqualta at the Penthouse. Free. Covering dance styles from Newbeat to Hi-energy. What else cart you say'.’


I Blackmarket at the Sub Club.

11pm—3.30am. £2. My favourite ofthe

Slam Crew’s three nights at the Sub isJoy.

but if the music at Blackmarket doesn't

quite reach the high standards of Fridaysit .

makes up for it in atmosphere and

mobility (ie it isn't quite so busyl).

I Fury Murrys 11pm—3.30am. Live music

sessions with disco. Check Rock listings

for band details and prices.

I Terra Nera at the Mayfair. l lpm-3am.

£2. Terra Nera suffers from the same

problem as Underground . . .briliiant 1

music (Latin. reggae. African. soca. etc). l

but the atmosphere is virtually i |

non-existent. A club like this needs intimate surroundings. but I'm afraid the Mayfair is as intimate as a breezy barn. The potential is there though.

I Chateaux Cha Cha Wilkie House. 10.30pm—3am. £2.50. A club whose aim is to bring the best of the gay straightclub scene together under one groove. Roxy‘s efforts seem to have succeeded - it was designer gear a go go. from Richmond to Westwood. Look ottt for the Flag Sisters and move to the sounds ofthe Dreadnought Hi Fi Sound system.

I Shag The Mission and Shady Ladies. 10.30pm-3am. £1 .50. Youthful (which isn‘t necessarily a bad thing) night on both floors of this venue. supplying easy dance sounds to a large if not tall crowd.
