Barcaboodle on Saturday nights, at London's Raw, is gaining quite a reputation at present. The vibe is second to none, owing to great tunes and a bar room where you can have a conversation without resorting to hand signals. The main room tours through classic funk, hip-hop and garage; Luke Neville, Noel Watson and Jules Vern are steering the wheels of steel this weekend.

Sat 10.30pm-4.30am, Raw, 112a Great Russell St London WC1, pounds 12.
