Club of the Week: The Lick @ Emporium
Saturday 17 October 1998
Trevor Nelson (above) presents his show of the same name on MTV. After interviewing the best R'n'B performers, this hopelessly oversubscribed gig gives Trevor and his pals an excellent excuse to extend the party. Anyone who managed to get inside last time will know that it was worth the wait.
Queuing is likely, as Emporium's notoriously surly doormen try their best to complicate your entry into the club. Once inside you can judge the refit for yourself. The best vantage point is the VIP area, where all kind of capers abound.
Kingly Street could well be the narrowest street in W1, but that will not stop a succession of luxury cars inching their way up to the door to make a very public appearance. Is it worth the hassle? Definitely. You're going to hear the best in R'n'B and hip-hop rhythms amidst a up for it crowd lightly sprinkled with a few celebrities. If you have a Ferrari bring it down and guarantee entry.
Friday, 62 Kingly St, London W1 (0171-734 3190 ) 10pm-5am, pounds 10
