The return of Comptons and Substation



The old abandoned tube station in London City has had the decorators in.

Returning for a new Winter season, is the freshly revamped Substation. The club is located in the old underground with a distinctive 1960's feel and will be open throughout the week.

 Also making a triumphant return to London City after a two year rest is Compton's Pub. A pub located in the heart of Soho, offering a chilled environment for groups of friends to meet and enjoy the many game facilities the pub has to offer.

The Weekend in Video Review



What a superb weekend, yielding some of the highest online traffic in Second Life this year.

Here in London City, on Sunday night 109 avatars were present, which is quite remarkable considering that not more than 100 visitors should be able to be in the same region at the same time.

It demonstrates that when a region is full, if you persevere and continue to teleport, or better still, walk over from a neighbouring region, you can bend the grid to your will!   It also makes us wonder just how many people would have been here if Linden Lab did not impose agent limits!

Enjoy the video of the weekend in the London City, the single most popular destination since 2010.

A super end to the weekend was had in Substation last night as DJ Crofty took us on a magical tour of the 70s and 80s playing some wonderfully obscure but well remembered sounds of the decades, well outside of the usual box people normally choose for these decades.   If you missed it, the musical Timelord is at Substation each Sunday from 11am SL (7pm UK)

The Weekend Already!



How wonderful, we can all carry on from where we left off :)

This Friday, join Roy, Rose and Coffee in Substation, playing 50's & 60's music from 11am SL (7pm UK).

Bar Soho will be playing its mix of the most recent dance tunes with some favourites from the past included for good measure.
Wil and his crew will open the doors at 1pm SL (9pm UK)

Madame Lala's is under new management as I bow out of the proceedings to concentrate on our other ventures.  Taking over the reins is Bailey who did a wonderful job in Bar Soho.  The brand new refit has been finely crafted by Ruby and Bailey and we cannot wait to see which direction this team chooses to steer the Revue Bar. 

On Saturday, join us for Party in The Park from 12pm SL, 8pm UK.

Presenting a brand new concert for your enjoyment, MIKA, on stage at 1pm SL.

With prize for best in Black & White.

Mika first found fame in 2007 with his initial album, Life in Cartoon Motion.  This was later followed with The Boy Who Knew Too Much.  Both albums sold over 5 million copies each, earning Mika several Grammy Awards and making him one of the most successful British solo acts of this new century.

Holiday Weekend in Review - 11th to 13th May



Well another weekend has ended and a new week has begun.  We had the usual shenanigans in London City with all the venues going full out to keep everyone entertained.  Bar Soho, Madame Lala's London Revue, Lezbo, World's End and Substation all had events with diverse themes - but one theme did re-occur across Sunday and that was Best in Swimwear.  Obviously everyone was wishing for summer and we even had an impromptu beach party in Regent's Park on Sunday!

The big event of the weekend was the Saturday concert in Regent's Park.  For the first time on the main stage we had the amazing live singer Adevina Citron.  An hour of songs and humorous chat kept the crowd entertained.




And that's me signing off for another week - be good!

Bank Holiday Weekend in Review - 4th to 7th May



So here we are again, except my blogging of the exploits in London City are slightly later than usual as it was a Bank Holiday weekend here so we continued partying through Monday.  I am so exhausted that I am ready to get back to work for a rest.

Three parties seems to be the way of life on a Friday now with Substation hosting Best in 50's Fashion, Bar Soho having Best in Sci Fi (for May the Fourth) and Madame Lala's rounding the evening off with a Best With Own Teeth contest.  I am not sure who actually checked the teeth, but thankfully it wasn't me.

Continuing on where we left off on Friday we had another three events on Saturday.  The evening started at World's End with a Best in Angels and Demons themed event.  Following on from that we headed on over to Regent's Park for a Best in Underwear contest with Tom Jones tribute taking to the main stage.



The night ended at Lezbo with an Under The Sea event and another of Ruby's amazing themed sets.


On Sunday we began to wind down from the constant partying as Substation ran a Best in Beatles Era contest.  Plenty of Beatles' hits and a pleasant atmosphere in the 60s themed underground club.  Sunday then finished at Lezbo with a Best in Spanish Outfit contest that saw some spectacular dancing with fans and castanets.


As Monday was a Bank Holiday and we managed to escape from real life and work, there was a traditional street party, which also played host to Adele and Best in Come As You Are.  The event saw the square outside Bar Soho transformed to a makeshift venue with catering facilities to suit all tastes (especially the beer tent).


The long weekend then ended at Bar Soho with a Worst Dressed contest.  As that has just finished as I am writing this, the outfits are still burning my eyes so you shall have to excuse we while I go and blot them out with several pills.

Hope you all have a great week.  Keep an eye on the blog for announcement of developments in London City this week and as always, thank you for your continued support.

Weekend in Review - 27th to 29th April



Hello my luvvies. just auntie Bailey here with a quick weekend round up as I all partied out this weekend!  And what a weekend it has been - we seem to get more and more parties each week.

On Friday we started off at Substation with an Addams Family party, before moving on to Bar Soho for Best in Baggy Pants and then ended up at Madame Lala's London Revue for Best in Hair and Teeth.

On Saturday we hit World's End for Best in Swimwear (maybe a bit chilly but no one noticed).  Then it was on to Regent's Park for the big Saturday party.  It had a Best in Cowboy/Cowgirl theme and a first for us - a tribute concert featuring John Denver.

John Denver and his support band

Honestly we were line dancing...it just looks like a camp country recreation of the Thriller video
Some of the buff bodies in attendance at the concert
After the party in the park, we headed off on the nightbus to Lezbo for Best in Fluffy/Tiny.

On Sunday we were beamed up to Substation for a Best in Star Trek contest before heading over to the Lezbo Asylum for Best in Horror.

"I only popped in to visit a friend..."
And that concludes my missive for another week.  Have a good week and hope to see you around London City.

Weekend in Review - 20th to 22th April



And so ends another weekend of costumes, music and insanity in London City.  The weekend started on a classy note with Best in Formal at Bar Soho.  It was a first for us, as the event was sponsored by Vero Modero, who provided free gifts and prizes.

Following on from Bar Soho, we headed on over to Madame Lala's London Revue for a Best in Disco contest and some fabulously camp and strange tunes.

On Saturday World's End Pub hosted a Best in Bizarre contest.  I don't wish to besmirch the good names of anyone there, but sometimes you wonder if they make an effort for such contests or just come as themselves!

Hot on the heels of the event at World's End, the party continued with Best in Party Wear in Regent's Park.  The tribute concert was the ever popular Neil Diamond, who had the crowd swaying with his crooning.


Neil Diamond...well, maybe Cubic Zirconia...and his band
After the concert it was time to head off to Best in Pirate at Lezbo.  Rather like fitting a ship in to a bottle, Ruby had managed to fit a pirate ship in to the club.  For added authenticity, she even left the taps running and flooded the club.  Still, it was about time the floor had a wash.


On Sunday we had our own version of the London Marathon, which proved to be fun for competitors, marshals and spectators alike.  Oddly enough even with furries and such, it didn't look any stranger than the real thing!

London hasn't seen so many people running since the lootings
To bring the weekend to a close, we had a Best in Dad's Army contest at Substation and then finally a Best in Fairy at Lezbo.

Stay tuned to find out what is in store for next weekend!

Weekend in Review - 13th to 15th April



Well that's another weekend over with and a new week has been birthed.  On a brighter note, that means we are even closer to the next weekend in London City!

The weekend got underway for us at Bar Soho on Friday with a Best in Sportswear contest.  Hostess Katty stepped in to help out as the regular host was abducted by aliens (or RL, which is much the same experience).  Yours truly stepped in to DJ for the night and I have to confess, I rather enjoyed myself...not sure how much the clientele enjoyed my dance tracks though!

After Bar Soho, we headed down the street as we usually do on a Friday to Madame Lala's London Revue, where there was a special performance by Blondie.

Maybe not Atomic, but definitely traces of radiation...
The party at World's End pub on Saturday was in danger of being raided by the police as the contest was Best in Baddie.  Thankfully the criminal masterminds of London City were able to stay free and made their escape after the event.

For the main event in Regent's Park we saw the ever popular Bee Gees take to the stage.  I do like a nice stage but it usually takes more than that to get my knickers wagging, however, this was something special - a giant disco ball that opened up to reveal the group.

An awesome stage set
The boys on stage
Movers and groovers on the Regent's Park dancefloor
After the concert in Regent's Park, revellers (who were obviously drunk and had impaired judgement) boarded the night bus.  Their destination was a Best in Space event at Lezbo and given the bus drivers in London City, a flight in to space is highly probable.

Starship Lezbo goes in to orbit
On Sunday we had another sixties inspired event at Substation with the contest theme of Mods and Rockers.  There was also a live performance by the ever lovely Adevina Citron - great voice and a great personality too.

A great crowd for Adevina
To round the weekend off, there was a Rocky Horror Picture Show event over at Lezbo.

Defies description...
And that's all from me for another week.  Stay tuned to this channel for more news on London City!
