AT THE CLUB FACE
Saturday 08 August 1998
@ the vibe bar
The transglobal generation hooks up every Thursday in Brick Lane, of all places. If you can resist the temptation of walking past two-dozen curry houses en route to the Vibe Bar, I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
The interior is stylish and relaxed, and offers patrons the chance to hook into the Internet and surf the world's websites.
The music reflects the global perspective. DJ Talvin Singh kicks off tonight in the Indian subcontinent, before Tunde Jegede introduces African beats with a live performance.
Thurs, 91 Brick Lane, E1 (0171-375 3711) 7pm-11pm pounds 5/pounds 3 NUS & UB40
The Aquarium is enjoying a bit of a renaissance of late, and this Sunday-night gem can take most of the plaudits. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly (who needs attitude on a Sunday night?), with everybody in the mood for socialising.
This is a good venue to chill in, so it's perfect for those who want to ease their way out of partying and into the beginning of the week. On second thoughts, forget that; you've got all week to catch up on sleep - bring your dancing shoes (or swimming trunks) and leave the double duvet at home.
Sun, 256 Old St, EC1 (0171-251 6136) 7pm-mdn't, pounds 7/pounds 5 members

Bass-driven house is served up a little harder with a sparse garnish of vocals. Like it or loathe it, MoS has a bangin' sound system and it always gets a good workout on Frisky nights. As ever, MoS procures a smart, cosmopolitan crowd which isn't afraid to work hard on the dancefloor.
Residents feature Heaven, John Kelly, Craig Campbell and Paul Jackson. While it's hard to imagine anyone anywhere who hasn't been to MoS, if you haven't checked out Frisky, do; 8 out of 10 clubbers prefer it.

Diving in at the deep end is no excuse for shirking the style stakes
