I challenge you to say you don't like drum & bass or dubstep! The music genre has been slowly but surely filtering its way into the mainstream music charts long since pop dominated the 2000s. Although to some an acquired taste, there is no denial it is becoming wide spread, much to the distaste of the music snobs of this world.
Because of the growing interest in the brain-thumping progressive bass many clubs and bars are hosting the token 'dubstep' night. Union Mondays is the equivalent for Hippodrome in Kingston. Sure it is largely a student club, with sticky floors, grubby toilets and never-ending queues for cheap £2 Stella Artois at the bar, but nonetheless a decent energy and atmosphere all the same.
10 DJs play throughout the night starting from around 10pm-2am every Monday (last entry at 1am), with fairly impressive pyrotechnics and classic tunes coming fast and furious. Vast amounts of space on the dance floor where 'skanking' is recommended and plenty of bars to choose from.
Situated conveniently next to the club is 'chic-o-land', the token greasy spoon. Host to the kind of food that fills you with regret as soon as you wake up next to your box of greasy chicken but still devilishly satisfying post-club
