Ahh . . . where does one start when describing Slimes?

If you go expecting some flashy nicely decorated club, you'll be in for a shock! It's best described as dark and dingy, but don't let that put you off. The sound system is excellent, the drinks aren't too expensive and the atmosphere is great. The place seems to be an old warehouse that's been taken over by the Goth/Cyber/Industrial type of people. It's THE place to visit at least once if you're into the Goth scene. Probably the longest running Goth club in the world, it is visited from people from all corners of the globe.

There are three floors, but sometimes there's only two used.

Also - don't be too put off when going to the toilet. It's quite common for ladies to use the gents and vice-versa! The first time I used the toilet I was a little surprised to find a couple of girls talking to a guy whilst I was in there.

Dress Code: Goth/Alternative - No blue jeans or trainers!
