Hey, whatsup   London  City  hows  your week been ?
Here in  London  we have had a great time, its been a fun  and  exciting week for all.

When Friday rolls  around  there's always  that weekend  buzzing  in  the  air  ( virtual  air ) people  bustling about  just  like  the  Real Life  London  City, people hanging  out and about  heading  off  into  town to clubs and pubs or meeting friends, catching  up  on  the gossip,  and  putting the grid to rights  with good conversation.
Look  at  this  crazy bunch  of  misfits.... 


Whatever  you decide to do in  London
City, you can always  find a friendly  face  in one  of  our  hubs, the hub is as  it sounds,  a hub of  activity people  hanging  out  chatting  dancing  and generally having a great  time ...



So, in from work, settle back for a great evening with  out leaving  the comfort of  your  own home. We have 4 great areas in  London city called sims, each  sim is ,creating one dynamic estate all geared  for  everyone's  taste, so to kick start your weekend you can head to  one  of  our many destinations.







First of  the mark  is  my featured venue  this week


"The Worlds  End  Pub".



The Worlds End  Pub is is  found  in  Sim 2 , It seems like every Tom, Dick and Harry frequent the Worlds End, resulting in a light-hearted, diverse crowd. It’s rowdy and it’s loud, but it’s good  fun. Its  host both themed  events  for  you to get dressed  up  and have chance to win  some $L's, but also  it has  Bingo,




a cheeky  little  Truth or dare, and traditional  pub  quizzes.  like all the the best pubs  in  RL do :). With its lively atmosphere, this pub is a good place to start a night out. It might get messy but most people at the Worlds End like it that way.




I asked  Katty , Hostess there, what she  liked  about the pub, "The Worlds End Pub, well its my fav place in SL and its what a typical London pub should be, cosy, fun and totally insane....."
Well we can't argue  with that :)


Over on sim 3 Victoria, The  Palladium Striptease springs  into action, that's if you like your action  hot and  steamy, with the most beautiful dancers  in  SL working here for your pleasure, it's fair to say  you'll get more  than  a  little  hot  under  the collar when  these  sexy dancers have finished with  you. 

















As your  night progresses next in  line  is  The Substation  a quirky club  found  in sim  1,  Soho, if you like good chat  and  golden  oldie  tunes  this is  right up your street, found  underground  this club is a pure  gem.
Roy and his team  are both welcoming and  fun, holding yet more events  to win $L's.




The  club  has a warm cozy feel and is  very welcoming, fantastic after a hard day at the  office.





Back across to sim 3, The Crown swings  in to action, this club  is definitely for  Adults  who like no strings  fun, saucy events to wet your whistle, not for the faint hearted, pure fun and laughter all the way  here. ( Pics  just too saucy to show  you )






No time to waste time to zip back to Soho in sim 1, to Bar Soho. Swanky and cool, definitely the place to see and be seen.
Every night Bar Soho  has  a different Dj Host combination keeping the whole feel fresh and exciting.











On  a Friday  you will find  me playing the best Hardcore and trance  know to man ( and woman )... with  Katty as Host  we have  an awesome time, though a word of warning.... arrive early as  the club fills to breaking  point and  we don't want disappointed you cant fit  in. 



Still got some party in  you?? Of course you have ..... its  then time to hot foot it over to  Madame Lalas, based on  the real  life  Madame  Jojo's. Here  you will find  Dj  Fierce  on the decks, playing what can only be described as a flamboyant mix of tunes.






There's  something very special about this club, and its well worth a visit, you will have one  of  the best times  possible spent laughing and dancing.




That brings  the events to a close  for Friday  but there's still  loads  you can  do here  in  the best  destination  in Second  Life, London never sleeps.



 When Saturday rolls around, we are already in  the weekend spirit, and the cherry on the cake is  the fantastic  LIVE concerts held  in Regents  Park, ALL FREE and for everyone to attend, we have seen the most wonderful and diverse acts here from  Famous  SL singers to the sublime, acts  like Queen, Frankie Valie, Amy MacDonald , Tina Turner, The Carpenters to name  but a few.... this weekend we saw  the famous duo ... Simon  and  Garfunkle, **amazing**.





The sim was packed hundreds of people teleporting in to watch another fabulous  concert.










Paul Simon and  Art Garfunkel rose to fame  in 1965, with their smash hit  "The Sound  Of Silence", well know for their  vocal harmonies  the duo were among the most  popular recording artists  in the 60's. They have a very turbulent singing relationship, breaking up and reforming once every decade, the most famous  in 1981, in Central Park, where they attracted  500,000 people, making  it the 7th  most popular concert in the history of  music, now we didnt attract  that many in  London ,  but close  :P.


Then  its all change as we head to Victoria again this time to  our chameleon club Juiced, know for it daily change  of décor this club is a must for a great night out.


When Sunday rolls around  the last thing you want to be thinking about is  Monday morning... so its  Baileys  turn  to keep  you amused  and unwind form the night before  with the Sunday smooth at Lalas. Bailey play the smoothest jazz and easy listing grooves perfect for a relaxing time.















Time for a spot of shopping in our extensive array of fabulous shops  something for every taste and  pocket, no need to walk either.... there's buses  on set routes to take  you on a tour, or a taxi, or why  not drive yourself , its a great way to get around  this huge  place, and  you'll  look super cool.







Time to head back  to Substation and more fun chat and dancing.











Then its left to juiced  to bring your weekend  to a close,   Sunday we were all aboard  the  Titanic ...  it was a very challenging build,  but as  luck would have it, it  I threw a few prims  together and  it didn't look too bad ... though I was thinking, if it was too hard  I'd have a room full of  water, and say it had already sunk  :P#






So, that's  it from me for another week, I'll see you  in  London city for more fun and frolics xxx

Growing Pains




The London City estate has relocated to a less cluttered area of the grid.

Our old grid location was getting a bit crowded, with sims above and below and to the left and right of us, in effect boxing us in.  So this move helps futher expansion of the estate and allows for growth in all directions.

Landmarks will work exactly as they did before and will take you to the correct location.   Slurl's and the map will take a day or more to update, so please use Landmarks until the grid settles us in properly.

Now, a sneak preview of what's in store.. This is the Seven Dials area of Covent Garden, currently under construction and is located in our development Sim, "London Adult".
