Something for the Weekend!
A dark and washed out 80’s looking industrial estate off the North Circular was the unlikely home of one of London’s best rave venues. It was as the name might giveaway a Rollerskating venue with 2 massive arenas and a sound system. Saturday nights were taken over by the Pirate Club and it became infamous in no time.
Hounded by a council (Enfield council shame on you) that didn’t want a rave on their territory, they attempted to take the license from the venue and Health and Safety and Police harassed the venue and punters where ever possible.
Home to The Pirate club and one offs like Desire and Elevation, it holds a fond place in many ravers memories.
