Who'd have thought that underground garage would have done so well in Ibiza this year? Pure Silk gives you the opportunity to check the vibe in its original state.

If you like the sound of the underground, then there's simply nowhere better on Saturday night. One year on, this gig is a London institution. Karl "Tuff Enuff" Brown, Norris "da Boss" Windross and the rest of the Pure Silk spinners know how to move a stylish crowd.

Tonight, 191 Victoria Street, London SW1 (0171-630 8980) 10.30pm-6am pounds 8 members/ pounds 10 until 3am/pounds 7 after

ROTATION @ subterania

Rotation attracts a loyal following every Friday night, so you can be sure of a good night. Subterania, while an impressive venue, seems to break club events that aren't up to the job; Rotation offers great value for money for a Friday night with no loss of integrity on the music front.

T-Money, Dodge, Femi Fem and Ronnie Herrel control the decks this Friday, serving up R'n'B, hip hop, rare classics and anything else with plenty of soul and bass. A gig that always retains an impressively relaxed vibe.

Fridays, Acklam Road, London W1 (0181-960 4590) 10pm-3.30am pounds 8
