Decks And The City – Friday 27 May 2016

What an amazing opening night we had on Friday 29 April. The place was packed and the buzz was electric. Bouncers adorned the door, the guestlist was long and the conversation flowed freely as shoes were tapped on the dance floor. Tempo Tantrum got the crowd going with House with a touch of cheeky breakbeat thrown in. Then Jay A wowed the crowd with an exquisite display of mixing using vinyl. When resident DJ, Ali Miraj, took control of the decks at 2am and began his set by dropping the original version of “When Doves Cry” by Prince the place went nuts. It was a fitting tribute to a music legend and “Decks and the City” had certainly stamped its authority on its first ever Friday night.

This month we will be joined by three highly talented DJs one of which is making his “Decks and the City” debut.

The event will be on Friday 27 May from 9pm – 4am

If you want to come please email to be added to the guest list. Free entry before 10pm and £5 after. Bring your dancing shoes.

The line-up is as follows:

9pm - 10.30pm - Huckleberry Spin

Hucklebery Spin works at an insurance broker based in Tower Hill on a 2 year graduate scheme. He is currently in the Corporate New Business Division learning a broker's craft of attaining valuable clients for the business.

His interest in DJing began in his first year at Nottingham Uni when he found the trusty Virtual DJ. He played around with that for about a year and then decided to take the plunge and buy a Pioneer controller which he still uses. He got into House music and started going to house nights at Stealth in Nottingham. He is now trying to save up for his first mixer and set of CDJs as well as seeing where this hobby on the side can take him.

mall grab - can't (get u outta my mind)


Mad Rey - Quartier Sex

10.30pm – 12am - Edd Atcheson

Edd got into house music and DJing back in ‘91, before taking the last 5 years off from DJing to have a family. He had played across the country and used to have a residency at Heaven. He is at the start of a new chapter and has said goodbye to Technics and hello to his laptop. His day job is being in charge of the digital user experience for personal and business banking for NatWest & RBS.

Here are some of the tracks he might play:

Cheeky Driver part 1 & 2

Belocca & Tobi Kramer - Be Rockin

DJ S.K.T - All I Wanna Do (Ft. Taet)

Please by Benny Camaro & Roberto Ferro

N - Joi Anthem (Chris Gresswell & Mark Johnstone Remix)

12am – 1.30am - Johnnie London

Johnnie is a 25-year veteran of the fixed income and credit markets and has been a prop-trader and fund manager. A quant and spreadsheet-jockey, his musical comfort-blankets are Faithless, New Order, The Smiths, Nile Rodgers, Soul, Funk and Disco. His guilty pleasure is a thoughtful take on Deep and Tech House, energising rhythms, cool riffs, with flavours of the kaleidoscopic past, but fundamentally music that connects people in the here and now, unifies them to have fun and freedom in the moment.

Some tracks that will be played on the night include:

I get deep

Sandy Rivera, Take away my pain -

Weiss, Get em funk -

Fat Sushi, Hana -

Rust, Dark Science -

If you work in the City want to join in the fun by spinning then contact Ali at as we are keen to showcase new talent

This venue serves Pub Food food.

A word from the chef:
The Horse & Groom have take full control of the kitchen after a string of successful residencies. The kitchen will be focused on a selection of burgers, such as venison and falafel, that will change throughout the seasons. Along with some classic pub dishes like salt beef bagels the pub will also offer some great sharing dishes such as double cheese nachos and southern fried chicken, great to enjoy over a few drinks with friends. Great value, free range meat and good quality ingredients!!
