A community-driven club taking up residency in the two-storey villa next to Inferno. Spread across a living room, bedroom, courtyard and terrace, the venue is something of a wellness retreat for the city’s alternative electronic crowd (yep, throbbing techno can be calming for some). Lots of the city’s talent have passed through, from the Swing Cat crew to the HTTP residents, and given a thorough workout to the impressive Element 5 soundsystem – especially on the second floor which will you leave you looking like a sweaty zombie past 2am on a Saturday. Health-minded clubbers take note: the ground-floor bar handily mixes up ‘healing drinks’ like a refreshing vodka, passion fruit and chickpea juice concoction before midnight on weekends. No guarantees those will have you feeling fresh in the morning though.
