There's a large space to dance - two floors, both with differing music. The second floor's dance space is a tad smaller. Although there is a large area on the first floor, the dance platform is usually PACKED. And depending on who you are, that can be extremely fun or extremely claustrophobic (also probably depends on how inebriated you are at that point).
The cover that night was 10 for my ladies and me - but according to the reviews, it may fluctuate to 15 or 20. Drinks are reasonably priced (I suppose, for London at least). Two tequila shots were 7.
In terms of music, the night I attended was all house/electronic which makes for a good dancing taim. Good beat, good DJ - but nothing that was "top 40" which may or may not be to your liking. I loved it because there was a constant beat you can shake your bootay to.
In comparison to the MASSIVE Pacha club in NYC, Pacha London is much smaller. I'm not sure what the ages here were exactly, but the crowd ranged from 20s - 40s: a generally good-looking crowd with a couple 'misplaced' looking people. Fortunately, the people here looked a lot older than those who would frequent Pacha NYC (it's like going back to preschool).
All in all, I had a good time, I may be back later if the cover was cheaper or if there was some kind of special going on.
Awful. It's a meat market of people who think they are clubbers, but are in actuality vapid TOWIE wannabe's who all come off the same conveyor belt of banality.
I can to see a friend DJ and we had 2 names on 2 different guest lists. We got to the door and they had screwed up both guest lists so my friend had to come down and get us through the door. Even on guest list it was still £10 in (half price) and I was very tempted to ask for a refund on the way out. Drinks are average price and the club makes the effort to look "upscale." There is a main dance floor on the ground level and 2 DJ booths upstairs.
My friend's set was awesome, and the music in the other rooms was ok. Within 20 minutes of being in the club someone elbowed my drink all over me and didn't even apologise. I was in there for 2 hours, and will never be in there again. What a waste of time and money.
Honestly, this club is not as good as it sounds. It's Expensive to get in (esp for a man), the drinks are ridiculously pricey. The music is ...well,no comment. I didn t enjoy my time there. The only positive things are the couches lol
This place has to be on the top 5 worse nightclubs I have ever been to list! To start off, there is always a lot of hype surrounding this place. It is internationally known and is a chain of clubs located in several cool places such as Miami, Barcelona, Ibiza, so you would expect it to live up to a high standard just like any other club in London that costs £20 to get in!
In reality, the music and venue are both really terrible. The layout of the place is small and cramped and there is no real focal point as there usually is in most clubs, i.e. the DJ or the VIP section, etc. I would be able to get past the venue if the music was up to standard. The DJ played a list of played-out house music that would have been cool 2 years ago! I have Sirius satellite radio in my car that plays a better mix than the Pacha DJ.
To top it off, the people there are a blend of wanna-be pretentious types who come here only to affirm amongst themselves that they still look hot. Image that really annoying person in your life who knows a friend of a friend who know' someone famous and talks about it as if it makes them cooler... this is the sort of place they'd frequent! Pacha truly puts the L in the AME and stands out for reasons that are not positive! Too overpriced and way too hyped!
Incredibly spacious, two floors of partying with ample seating throughout.
My first visit was with the company Christmas party, when it bought out the whole venue.
The front entryway opens up to a foyer - from here a set of double doors leads into the main (multi-colored lighted) dance floor; a staircase leads up to another bar and private cabanas overlooking the main floor.
Bars are amply stocked and staffed, so placing an order wasn't at all a herculean task even at full capacity. In all a decent place to party.
Went last weekend, I arrived early as I wanted to avoid the queue, it was a bit empty but it ended up getting packed! Lots of nice girls, and really good house music! We all had an amazing time and would come back definitely.
This place is pretty legit. Yea there's an expensive cover for guys (+-20 GPS) but it's Pacha so what did you expect. I've been to the Pacha's is Spain (Ibiza & Madrid) & this one is different in a sense that it is not quite as upscale or decorative, but equally fun. There's (3) separate dance floors on two different levels, all playing good music (House) & people having fun / getting F'd up. Good ratio of chicks & there were some pretty cute ones too. Drinks are pricey but they're expensive in any popular city (no more expensive than LA / NYC). Went there on a Saturday night, got there early (around 10:30pm) & didn't have to wait in line. My favorite club in London for sure!
meh. its not bad if you're in the area. drinks aren't bad. and if you just feel like going dancing its kind of fun. the guys outnumbered the women when i was there by quite a ratio; however, maybe not the kind of guys you want dancing all up on you...
A fiery bit of Balearic heaven right here in the heart of London. Staying true to its roots, the venue is right on cue for taste and blistering hot sounds straight from the sun.
Beneath the famous Pacha cherries, Pacha Presents plays out each with and in 2013 will do so with more discerning line-ups than ever, as well as plenty of new improvements to the club to make it an essential entry into any clued-up clubbers party diary.
