I Beatbox Teviot Debating Hall 9pm—2am. (Students and Guests only). FREE. Pseudo-trendy student disco playing the kind of slick. soul-boy fare that appeals to Edinburgh‘s sideburned fraternity. Downstairs. however. in the intimate surroundings of the Park Room. another (better) club takes

I De-Lux Wilkie House 10.30pm—3am. £3. From 11 May. An upfront dance club featuring DJ‘s from Spanish Harlem and North. and playing the same kind of music.

I North Wilkie House 10.30pm—3am. £2.50. May 4 only. On the sixth day. so they say. God created Manchester. And there came forth from that place wee men with wide trousers and silly haircuts. who wrote songs about ‘twisting my melons‘ (man). And this is where to go to hear those songs.

I Lite Shady Ladys. 9.30pm—2am. £2. From May 9. Bit ofan unknown quantity this one. I‘m afraid. but they do have the lnsipid Carpets cow on their ﬂyers. so 1 ‘d hazard a guess at music with a Mancunian bias.
I Chateaux Cha Cha Blue Oyster Club. 10.30pm—3am. £2.50. Designer gear ahgo-go at this stylish club which combines the best of both the gay and straight scenes under one groove. Suffering a steady decrease in popularity though - Roxy‘s days would seem to be numbered.
