Monthly Saturdays, The Bongo Club
- ‘People have weird ideas of what Latin American music is - it’s salsa, samba and merengues.’ - 'You have to dress for the occasion, and it’s going to be hot! I’ve been to clubs in Latin America and this place has a similar atmosphere: a bit seedy.’
- ’lt’s a really mixed crowd, very laid back. I think that anyone of any age group could come here and not feel out of place, and you don’t get hassle from guys either.’
- ‘The dancefloor is a bit crowded, but where else can you see such a fantastic band for the normal price of a club? It’s definitely great value for money.’
