Social Newsletter – Week 1

Happy New Year Year to you all.  There are some new developments down at the bar. . 

First up, we have a whole new set of Friday nights starting this month (and one in February which we can can’t announce yet). Read all about them HERE. It all kicks off on the 13th January with Good Block.

This Friday the Heavenly Jukebox, Mark + Matt will be hosting a Friday Social for one week only over two floors, which means i get to play records in the basement for first time in ages – looking forward to it, come and say hello.

Saturday Night we’re open until 3am to celebrate a year of SubSoul nights.  Jazzie B is playing an extra long First Birthday set alongside Chris P Cuts and Mr Rive.

We have finally got Zane ‘Cunningham’ Cunningham to put together his very first exhibition of photos for the bar.  They look BIG, bold and colourful, full of energy and need to be seen.

The launch party is on Wednesday 11th January from 6.30pm with some free beers for early arrivals.  All are welcome and the Southern Hospitality DJs will be on hand to soundtrack the pictures of their own parties!
