The feel good vibes flow seamlessly through Patterns' two floors and out on to the terrace. It's a place for drinking and eating, but you'll mostly want to visit for a breathless dance floor workout. The Ground Floor fronts a hand-built DJ booth from Bad Habits, the basement features a L'Acoustics sound system and the terrace welcomes collaborators and promoters all year round. Resident DJs keep this place bouncing 7 days a week.
