Club, is the longest running Goth nightclub
in the world. Its present location is Electrowerx, 7 Torrens Street, Islington
though it has had a number of other locations previously. It is a members only club, open every Saturday from 9.30-7.30am with 3 floors playing music genres such as Goth, Industrial
. The building the club is situated in was an abandoned industrial complex and the club started out as a regular squat party
. The club's facilities were rather basic when it was first started in the early eighties, perhaps one reason for naming the club the 'Slimelight' though this is also a parody of another London club's name that was famous at the time, The Limelight
. Over the years the club has been renovated and upgraded to feature all the mod cons of a proper nightclub. The club claims a membership of around 10,000 people worldwide, and has a loyal following of regulars who go every week. Originally the club had a policy of "bring your own booze
", but recently due to licensing laws the club has had to clamp down on this, and have installed 2 "proper" bars, serving a fine selection of alcoholic beverages and soft drinks.
The club was immortalised by the goth metal band Killing Miranda in their song The Ballad of Torrens Street.
