Lofty Ambitions

The Lofts opened at the back end of August with an ambition to become one of the north-east’s premier clubbing destinations. Looks like they’ve succeeded.

I kinda liked Tiger Tiger, but I honestly can’t mourn its passing because I absolutely love The Lofts (which is situated on the old Tiger Tiger site in Newcastle). This new, 1500 capacity ‘super-club’ features three separate rooms, a ground-breaking sound system from L-Acoustic, and a state-of-the-art, fully immersive light and visual show. Its grand opening saw Pete Tong and the very excellent Horse Meat Disco christen the decks in fine style, and since then a whole raft of legendary nights have just piled up. This November the good times will keep coming, and I’m really looking forward to checking out Catz n Dogz (pictured – 12 November). The Polish duo are mega-stars throughout Europe with the biggest clubs in Berlin, in particular, going ga-ga for them. They’ll be supported by Mighty Mouse and Alex Virgo. Also looking tasty in November is Joel Corry (18 November), Eats Everything, Ferrick Dawn and Arielle Free (19 November), Jamie 3:26 (20 November), and The Shapeshifters and Melvo Baptiste (27 November). More details from the website, below. JL
