Haha! Liquid is definitely a mixed bag; sometimes it's amazing - but sometimes, especially when you're running out of student loan, you wonder why on earth you spent your money on going there. Depending on what day you go, you have the chance of running into loads of students! Even though we have our own on-site club, being students, we're always on the look-out for that new cool niche place - and this just happened to coincide with the opening of Liquid.
I'll do the bad first:
Every Wednesday Liquid hold student night - I think it's Wednesday, It might have changed. Inside there's two separate arenas; the big arena which holds something like 1500 people (lol don't hold me to that) and the teeny tiny one which holds something ridiculous like 300 people.
The teeny tiny arena usually plays Hip Hop/ Bashment/ R&B and the big arena plays Pop and Electro and other funky stuff. I must admit, I usually always went to the smaller one because I don't like pop music. If you are going to go to the small arena, BE WARNED: things will get sweaty! If it's a packed night (end of term/ guest performance), you will barely have space to move; getting a drink from the bar will be a myth and DJ Skandalous will play the same set he's been playing since 2008! The dance floor also gets sticky, so if you're like me and likes to slide moves - not going to happen.
Now the positives:
It's a student's dream. Cheap entry (usually £4), cheap alcohol (drink responsibly); it's the biggest club in Uxbridge, so most of the ladies will go there on a big night - this automatically guarantees male attendance. BE WARNED: turn up early on big nights, especially at the end of term (re-freshers week)!!! I once missed out on getting in when we turned up at 10pm, the queue was to the Subway shop!
Don't miss out. The atmosphere for some of the end of term parties are amazing! You'll have the best time if you're with a couple of friends, and if you've had a couple of drinks you'll probably find love in there too. Don't overlook the big arena! I found that you could have a great time in the big arena because the people in there are usually more laid back and hell-bent on having a good time.
I've had some of my best uni memories during nights at Liquid - from beach parties to guest performances. It has taught me that it's not the club which makes the night, it's the people who turn up that night and what mood they're in.
Anyone who knows me would guess that Liquid is not really my bag. In a big enough group and enough drink in me and it's alright.
Liquid and Envy (Royales to the old crew) is split into 2 spaces Liquid and...wait for it...Envy - you couldn't make it up. Liquid occupies the bigger space playing funky house and chart music whereas Envy pump out hip hop and r'n'b. Wednesday is by far the busiest night as it plays host to Shipwrecked (anyone remember that show?) and hundreds of Brunel students - mainly the sports teams. This usually means cheap prices. Good times.
The architecture is rather beautiful with the original fixtures and fitting of the old theatre it used to be, except with a couple of big dance floors, the odd overpriced bars and power mad bouncer dotted about.
My gripe isn't with the music, or the bouncers, or the place. It's more the fact that I begrudge queuing for 45 mins for a drink in a downsized plastic bottle for double the price of a regular glassed one. Not cool. I'm a woman of simple pleasures. This is not checking my boxes. Hence I've yet to step foot in Liquid for 2 years. Can't I make it 3?
Well if you just happened to pass by Uxbridge, live in surrounding towns hillingdon or slough, this is a good enough club-because it is the only one in uxbridge! Seriously though liquid offers an exciting night especially as a student living on student loans!, on wednesdays(student nights), entry is only £3.00 and drinks start from as little as £1.50. The music ranges from the usual contemporary hip-hop,funky,rnb and bashment; which everyone loves so much that after a few student nights, you will know who lil wayne, movado and kid cudi are-which is enough to score points with the youth.
However after the night, there are friendly cab drivers waiting anticipately for your beckon, oh and do take care if you want a bite because the kebab shop next to it does seriously get packed but if you fancy a more exquisite schmoony, theres Heathrow airport's late restaurants. Only about 15 minutes away.
Looking to go clubbing in Uxbridge, ten visit Liquid night club. The atmosphere is absolutely amazing. There is great lighting in the night club as well. VIP booths for hire for about £50.00 each. The night club is easy to access only 5mins from Uxbridge train station. After all that dancing if you feel hungry, two doors away are K F C, and a Cafe.
