Description

There is a rattle and hiss as a Subway train hurtles by, the painted metal a riot of colour - a speeding canvas for guerilla artists against the smoking cityscape. This is The Big Apple 1977 and the city is on fire.

In the Bronx, a new kind of hybrid music - a DIY collage of looped Funk and Disco breaks that will one day dominate the sonic landscape - is being born on street corners and in makeshift dance halls. They call it Hip Hop.

In Central Manhattan the lights of Broadway shine down on the throngs clamouring outside Studio 54, as inside Warhol gets down with Grace Jones, and the stars swing from the mirror balls and dance, ankle deep, in glitter.

The word is out - there's a block party in Harlem tonight, and you jump the barriers and head Uptown. You get off at 125th street, the bass making the pavement beneath your feet shudder as you head towards the sound. There's electricity in the air tonight and the streets themselves feel alive - because this the city that never sleeps, where the party never stops and the night is always young.

Join us this winter as we turn our rooftop space in Brixton into a scene from New York in the 1970s; drawing inspiration from iconic venues such as Studio 54 and the Harlem Apollo we are taking you across the pond and back in time with a selection of themed bars, a night club, private rooms and New York inspired street food.

We paid for a ticket, believing that you would be charged at the door regardless. You are not, just turn up. Our ID or bags weren't even checked, let alone our tickets. The space is amazing, so much effort has gone into the set. Although, there was nothing else going on. No dancers, no entertainment, the DJs kept swapping, there was only one good DJ, the music was more background noise. Pizza amazing. Although they ran out off most ingredients. We had a pleasent evening eating pizza and chatting, although I was hoping to dance and have some entertainment laid on.

I came here on Halloween but unfortunately arrived late and didn't get to see the whole space. But from what I did see, it's a cool venue. Loads of street food to tuck into and rooms to check out.
