January is usually the time to hunker down, but if any club can tempt you out then Smashing can. Forget the New Year's resolution and get back on the sauce, swagger onto the underlit dance floor and shake your stuff with all the pop-stars who make this their home from home. Smashing, 189 Regent St, London W1, tonight and every Friday 10.30pm-3am. pounds 7

Guests included Laurent Garnier, Billie Nasty and LTJ Bukem, among many others. United Kingdom, Buckhold Rd, Wandsworth SW18 (0181-877 0110). Fridays 10pm-6am. pounds 9
