Don your palm-tree shirt and get down to ‘The Tears of a Clown’ and other 1960s Motown and soul floor-fillers at Hawaiian Bop, one of various club nights at this mainstream basement party venue. Big-name DJs also make an appearance amid the mashed-up, vintage circus-themed surroundings, as do big-top performers and burlesque dancers. Ascend to the ground-floor cocktail bar for food and more drinks. Among Trapeze’s ‘curiosities and monstrosities’ – £8.50 cocktails to get you high-wired – you’ll discover the pun-tastic likes of Beer-ded Lady, a genever apricot and ale sour. Pistonhead Kustom lager, Kopparberg cider, and Champagne at £6.50 a flute are what to drink with the Atlantic City diner food (grilled salt-beef rolls, mac & cheese croquettes, meat or vegetarian platters). Dress casual or freaky.
