It’s August bank holiday weekend, the last bank holiday until Christmas and traditionally a stonker of a party weekend – and smack bang in the middle of it is XXL Construction at Pulse. The London Bridge super-venue will be packed with bears, blokes and hunks all yelling ‘Yes we can’ as they grab their tools and party till dawn. S’ee you on the dancefloor.
Get to Ku this weekend
No matter what the weather’s like we guarantee it will be super hot all weekend at all the Ku venues. Whichever you choose – Ku Leicester Square with Klub below and Light Lounge above, or maybe the small but perfectly formed Ku Soho – they will all be open late and packed with hotness, cold drinks and cool tunes. Plus don’t forget the beautiful She Soho for our sisters on Old Compton Street.

Friday (24 Aug) sees the hilarious Lola Lasagne taking to the stage while Saturday sees Eva Iglesias, the Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist belting out the hits. And on Sunday you get three of the UK’s finest when Mary Mac, Miss Jason and Tony Sinclair bring the laughs.
