Did you see the....and what about the... oh,and the.... if you don't know what I'm talking about, chances are you missed the best bank holiday bash ever... I mean EVER!!! Non-stop party from start to finish, spread right across the most popular sim in Second Life. If there's one thing we do's how to party!!!
 So much happened over this Bank Holiday  weekend it was hard to keep up, good job Roving Reporter Ruby was on hand taking photos and notes so I could relay it all back to you. So buckle up, we are going on a journey......

The weekend as always kicks off at Substation, our fun club found near the hub in sim 1 Soho, Roy and his team are ready to kick start your weekend, with fun chat, and good old songs to get your toe tapping in this quirky, busy club, everyone is welcome who has party on their mind

next stop
Bar Soho, both swanky and cool, this is a popular place all week long, there's a different Host/ Dj combination every night ensuring a fresh up to the minute atmosphere, with fun banter and great music, a must for all those who love to chat hang with friends and dance the night away.

@ Lala's
then onto Madame Lala's, to keep your Friday night going right into Saturday morning, Dj Fierce plays us a cocktail or tunes from every genre and era crafted into a continuous amazing fun mix, with myself as host, every Friday we rip the roof off having a fantastic time, not tried it yet? Once there you will be hooked, believe me ...

In London City, we pride ourselves on following real Life  London Events as closely  as possible, taking you, on the journey with us, so everyone from all over the world can join us and get that London feeling without even leaving the comfort of their own chair, not to mention several hundred  pounds cheaper .... isn't technology grand :)...

So, this weekend is no different. Not only is it Bank Holiday weekend, but it is the Notting Hill Carnival.
Notting Hill Carnival is Europe's biggest street festival, it's an annual event held every year since 1965, on the streets of Notting Hill. It's held over two days, on the August Bank Holiday and usually attracts around one million people, making it one of the largest festivals in the world.
So of course we wanted to bring it to Second  Life, putting our own Unique spin on it, which is why We are the most popular destination on the Grid.

Saturday 25th August 2012

As always every Saturday, we have an awesome open air event in Regents Park, be it The royal Jubilee, Gay Pride, The Olympics, Great Groups, Fantastic Bands, or like this weekend Awesome  LIVE Singers, that's right this weekend we saw the return of one of our favourite Artists, Miss Adevina Citron, this hot little fire-cracker packs a powerful punch, Adevina has such a beautiful and powerful voice she has fans who follow her all over Second  Life.

You never know what you will hear when you show up at her concert, but you will love it.  It could take you to a simpler time of early hits, a popping mix of contemporary rhythms that keep your feet tapping, or anything/everything, Adevina will deliver! She enjoys fun, cheeky banter with the audience that keeps them coming back for more, no stranger to London City, we love her concerts and so do you ,again people queuing to get  into the sim to enjoy their weekend with us.

later to Juiced in our Adult sim, this is a themed club, a new day, a new décor, Saturday whisked us to a scary Graveyard, for best in spooky, there were Ghouls, Vampires, Goblins, Zombies and Ghosts, with music to match the event, we all had a great time.

Suday 26th August

London City Victoria, has a double whamy, not only are we celebrating Notting Hill carnival, but also the opening of The Crown pub. London City is ranked Adult, so we can really let our hair down and offer more than ever before, with an adult nature, what a hoot, people are loving this sim, declaring this is the best sim in SL ( but we already knew that  :P .. ) The Crown opened its doors and what a response,  people flooded in for their best in Event, oo lala if you have a nervous disposition, you may want to read on but  looking sideways :P  fun and giggles all round.

It's the big day of The Notting Hill Carnival events started at 2:30 pm  / 6:30 am slt, in the Victoria Hub, which  had been made in to an open air concert area, kicking of with "best in come as you are"  what could be easier? Turn up, party and win Lindens .... how fabulous!! With yours truly as Dj and the beautiful Ainurne as hostess, we got the celebrations well and truly off to a banging start!!

 But it didn't stop there, two hours of non stop party, straight into the next event... which was "best in Floats" residents were given the base of a  Carnival float which, they could build on, and transform into anything they wanted, ready to parade around the streets of Victoria, what a hoot,

our residents have more talent than you can shake a stick at, two prizes one for best float and one for best effort, absolutely amazing, and so funny watching everyone waddling round the sim with their creations and Fierce on the tunes, this is what its all about!! then straight into another event, it was The Crown Pubs turn to party in the park, "best in Carnival"  with Dj Torric and the beautiful Loulou as host, the outfits were amazing, people really pulled out all the stops this weekend, ( are you keeping up? we aren't even half way through yet!! ) Torric play the best Carnival and reggae music while Loulou kept us going, with fun chat.

Next up Dj Willy, again playing the best Carnival music to really make us feel like we were at the Notting Hill Carnival. Then on to our main show, we had Bob Marley and the Wailers in concert, what a blast, everyone singing along to his hits, including "Buffalo Soldier", "Stir It Up" "Three Little Birds" and many many more, Bob got off stage and partied in with the audience who thoroughly loved it.
Then it was the chance of Club Juiced to take the reigns, and take us through to 2am / 6pm slt, with yet another chance to win  Linden Dollars with a "Best in Red, Gold and Green" event, the sim was packed  full of partying people all day non stop.

Mean while in sim one Soho, Roy and his awesome team in Substation played their Sunday evening gig, with a club full of people enjoying some Golden oldies and having a fantastic time.

Monday 27th August 2012

The party continues on Bank Holiday Monday, again in Victoria, London City Adult, the hub was transformed into a hot Jamaican club, with two levels for dancing, and a pool,  complete  with diving board, the event was of an Adult nature and people flocked to take part ( I said flocked ) ... what a hoot, everyone loved it and we attracted people who hadn't been to London City before, but who said they would love to keep returning, as it was so much fun, and they weren't lying, it was!

Then later to Bar Soho, for best in Carnival, to bring the celebrations to a close, I was Dj and Willy was the awesome Host, again the costumes were fantastic, we all danced and chatted while I played a mix of Reggae, Soca, Samba and Bachata music it was an awesome night.

So that is the end of Carnival, I would like to thank all the staff who took part this weekend you guys rock!! seriously!! and to all the Resident who make it all worth while, you are all awesome xxx

London City Estate Expands


It has always been our policy that we only expand the estate as each region becomes totally self-sufficient and self reliant.

We are delighted to announce London City3 has achieved this goal and as we pride ourselves on being consumer led, the region has been upgraded to a full Adult region.

This compliments the most popular region inSL, London City (Soho) and is an exciting beginning to a new expansion phase for The London City Estate.

During August we began to extensively rebuild and restructure Victoria (London City3), with a focus on Adult nightlife, activities, dating and hookups.

London City3 currently features JUICED Nightclub, The Crown (& Anchor) Pub, Striptease at The Palladium, a Private Hotel, Adult Hub and the Russell Square Freebie Subway.

Although redevelopment of this region is still not quite completed, we hope that you will enjoy the facilities that are already up and running and return for an enriched experience as the building work concludes and the development cycle begins.

JUICED - An Adult Themed Night club, with a different themed interior each time you visit, is open daily from 2.30pm SL (10.30pm UK) Our premier Adult club is the ideal place to meet singles and those up for fun.

The Crown - British Pub for those looking to score, with communal facilities and private rooms. Open all day and staffed from 12pm SL weekdays.
The Palladium Striptease -  Watch and meet Exotic Dancers in one of London's oldest theatres.
Become a dancer yourself by having the group active. Logon to a tip hat and dance on the poles and start earning immediately.

Our sincerest thanks to our visitors, patrons, merchants and team for making this possible.  We hope you will all join us for a launch party during Bank Holiday Weekend (25-27th August!).

Visit London City: Victoria here

We believe this to be proof of concept as the original video published in October 2011 demonstrates (and attached for posterity).

Hey, hey hey London City whatsup? Well, I never thought it would happen,  (some are thankful it has), ... I'm totally speechless!!! Did you see all the events in London City this weekend? O.M.G what a blast we had, 3 full sims of pure enjoyment,  if I didn't have pictures to prove it  , you would never believe me!!

So, let me get on with it and tell you all about it.

Friday 10th August 2012

TGIF!!! RL, today dragged on, waiting for the clock to hit home-time, waiting to login to SL, and most importantly into London City, The Top Destination is Second Life!! I've heard rumours,in darkened corners, that some people log-in to SL, and get bored because there's nothing to do??? What?  They obviously haven't found London City.... we have so much going on everyday in our sim's people literally queue to get in!
When Friday rolls around, the best place to head to is Substation, Roy and his team are rearing to go, to start your weekend with a bang! playing  music you can sing along to, in  fun, quirky surroundings, it's time to meet your friends, win some lindens, have fun chat and dancing

Then on to Bar Soho

Bar Soho

Bar Soho is a great place, playing all the latest hits, in swanky surroundings, echoing the real Soho in London. This really is a fantastic night out not to be missed, Dj willy on hand to play the great tunes and Katty your fun host that keep the mood light and fun  :) just one of the Dj Host combinations that work so well together keeping Bar Soho one of the most popular clubs in Second  Life.

Madame Lala's

This week the club's event was best in fetish... Oo La La we saw some sights lol  Dj Fierce spinning the eclectic bunch of tunes  and myself hoisting, this is always the best fun, non stop giggles from start to finish in a club that welcomes everyone, anything and everything goes.

Saturday 11 August 2012

The chances of anything coming from Mars was a million to one they said....

The eve of the war, The Martians have landed on Earth... In London City, even they have heard what a great night out it is with us.
Regents Park

Abruptly, the sound ceased...

Helvis Xue

Helvis Xue

Later, no stranger to  London City, the awesome talented Helvis Xue, only singing LIVE, to a mass audience  on the Olympic stage in Regents Park, Helvis sings songs from his hero Elvis, but also ( get this ) he sings more contemporary songs with an Elvis twist, it's just like the King is still with us.

His voice is flawless, and he enjoys some cheeky banter with the audience who love him to bits. That's why he returns time and time again back to London City to perform for all his adoring  fans here.

Party people, came in their hundreds to sing and dance with Helvis, the stage was set, it had a fantastic Las Vegas Feel.  What a great night.

Later, we hot foot it round to Juiced, our fantastic themed night club, a new night, a new theme, a new décor, that's right,every night the club takes on a new look, and tonight is no exception, best in tattoo's, so the club was transformed into a tattoo shop complete with inking chair's and tattoo's you could pick from, this was an awesome night everyone turned up inked to the max, fun times!!

Sunday 12th August 2012

As always, our very own Angel of Mercy, Bailey Saxmundham, takes pity on the partied out people from the previous night, and eases us gently back into the land of the living, playing us the best in easy listening tunes at Madame Lala's. Thank heavens for small mercies :)

Usually we head to Substation for a right knees up, but tonight we head back to Regents Park, yet another night of history in the making, it's the Closing Ceremony of the Olympics, so Substation was held in the Park Roy hosted as Bailey played the tunes, people flocking in to be part of the celebrations, ready for the ceremony to start.

9pm rolled round, and the whole Real Life event was being beamed into Regents Park,

Wow the wonders of technology, how awesome. and what a night, we saw images portraying the hustle and bustle of London Living. Artists from the Uk, singing the songs we can all rememeber. George Michael , The Spice Girls, Stomp, all simply wondeful and all viewed from the number #1 venue in Second Life.

Then on to Juiced for best in Vampire

The club was transformed into a dark Gothic Vampire Castle, there was a river of blood as the dance floor, spine chilling stuff.

See, I told ya :) so that's it from me this week, I'll see you through the week fun more fun and games.
