elsewhere

Heading upstairs, the immediately promising thing about elsewhere is the calibre of tunes thumping through them. Like a jack in the box this place is all about spontaneity, with Breakbot’s post-Summafieldayze set featuring pop-up sets by none other than Justice, Yuksek, Boys Noize and Miami Horror. Metronomy and Steve Aoki crushed it here – so did The Holidays and a sleigh of local indie acts.

The other thing about elsewhere is its patrons are about as conservative as a flying brick (in a good way). Wearers of vintage kicks shmooze with the suede-fringed alt/country crowd as red lipped ladies shimmy on the dance floor. Dreamy band-aids can now count the stars in Pennylane, the new outdoor alcove open til 5am for witty exchanges. For good company, cocktails and a palooza of tunes, say ‘laters haters’ to the aggro Cavill crowd and make a move on elsewhere.
