The future of clubbing

Ibiza may still have its takers, but clubbers are finally losing patience with the formulaic dance scene. In its wake an alternative, 'intelligent' dance scene is emerging - and it's serious stuff. Howard Byrom reports

After Dark: All the world's his stage

Switching on Radio 1 in days gone by, you could be sure that the familiar voices did not have to travel too far... usually from Great Portland Street. Last week, "Auntie" moved her broadcasting operations to the marginally more exotic location of Ibiza's beaches.

ENFIELD OF DREAMS

Forget Ibiza and Goa as clubbing meccas. It's time to throw out your trainers and pick up your handbag, as it's all happening in Enfield, Middlesex, where the "most expensive club" in the country has just opened its doors. More than pounds 8 million has been lavished on Eros, the latest in a string of openings by club giants First Leisure. Bill MacGregor, First Leisure's manager, has high hopes for their latest project. "Eros is a brand new approach in disco design," he says. "Many of today's clubs have so little to offer, lots of them are just plain warehouses. We offer absolute comfort and luxury. It is the night-club for the next millennium." Eros boasts a capacity of 2,000, a hydraulic stage and themed bars. The Gothic Bar is strewn with cobwebs, columns and wrought iron, while the Fairground Bar comes complete with flashing lights, arcade machines and a casino area. As for the music, there's something for everyone, from 1970s nights to dance and Indie nights. And if you're planning to go but don't know what to wear, Eros has fashion police giving round-the-clock advice (0181-363 7565) to anxious clubbers faced with an insubstantial wardrobe. 3 Dearsley Rd, off Great Cambridge Rd, Enfield, Middlesex (0181- 363 3111)

Ibiza raves to the mystic mix of 12th-century saint

No doubt the cultural theorist would call it post-modern. The publicity blurb opts for "Music for the Millennium". The rest of us could see it as a further sign of the music industry's desperate struggle to come up with something new.
