Clubbing: Milk 'n' 2 Sugars at The Cross, Kings Cross

Saturday 24 May 1997
Milk 'n' 2 Sugars started a couple of years ago, promoting a one-off party for friends at London's Chunnel Club. Their events have always attracted an enthusiastic crowd who come for the bangin' tunes and friendly vibe.
Two years on they seem to have made lots of friends (more than two-and- a-half-thousand members) and now hold monthly parties at The Cross. The Cross encapsulates the essence of the capital's best venues. It's lavishly decorated, with colourful drapes and banners. Its three rooms project an almost cavernous appearance, with the largest chamber offering dancers the opportunity to watch the DJs up close.
Described as a cross between a club and a Turkish harem, this place is all about social intercourse.
Marshall Jefferson, Farley Jackmaster Funk, Dave Camacho, John Marsh and Miles Holloway have all graced the Technics at these gigs. As you'd expect, the music policy encourages you to express yourself; patrons can expect fat servings of uplifting house, funky beatz and bangin' garage.
Al Mackenzie and Triptonite resident Jason Moore join M'n'2S regulars Tarun, Matt Cassar and Miss Jools. Live percussionists and performing artists are thrown into the mix. Book in advance.
EYE FREEBIE Labatt Ice has joined the Terrence Higgins Trust to raise pounds 40,000. "Labatt Ice Aid" features in premier clubs over this May Bank Holiday in Leeds, Manchester and London. Tonight the fundraising efforts are focused at London's excellent Music Mill.
In addition to donating up to pounds 20,000 from the sale profits of Labatt Ice, pounds 1 from every ticket will also go to the Trust.
For those who can't make the gig, Labatt has donated five goodie bags containing: 1 case of Labatt Ice, a Red or Dead T-Shirt, a record bag and a denim jacket. The first five postcards out of the bag will win one. Entries to Alister Morgan on Clubs, Labatt Comp, The Independent, 1 Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London E14 5DL by 31 May
