You’ll get all the Girl’s hits, a selection of solo bangers and a mix of 90s tunes to boot. Zig a zig ah!

FemmeDaddy at Ku Bar
There’s a hot new Tuesday night in town and you can find this hotness at Klub downstairs at Ku Leicester Square. The new night is called Femme Daddy and Ku PR prince Stefanos told us, a Femme Daddy is “typically found in the leather/kink community, a femme who dons lipstick and a crisp shirt, personifying a Daddy style and demeanour. Think powerful femmes in suits, leather and/or lace, a gown with a harness, Joan Jett’s swagger with Madonna’s sensual domineering persona, gender bending dapper looks”. They are encouraging everyone to dress to impress and it all kicks off at 9pm.
