I Barry Cabanas at Eden. 11pm-3am. £6.99 (£5.99 members; £5 nutty dressers). 15 Oct. Monthly. It seems like only yesterday that we blagged our way into a certain launch party and were offended by lots of hardcore pornography proudly plastered (with what adhesive, we’d rather not know) throughout the toilets.
