Party Earth Cable Review

The Scene

Cable in London’s South Bank is an underground, pretentious-free club dedicated to house. Put on your dancing shoes & hit this great London club with Party Earth.

Underground dance music reigns supreme at Cable, which makes sense considering the club is located well below street level, carved into the bowels of the London Bridge railway station.

The unassuming entrance would be easy to miss if it weren’t for the line of happy clubbers waiting to chug in – made all the more conspicuous thanks to the non-existent dress code that inspires partiers to don their own perfectly styled trying-so-hard-to-look-like-I’m-not-trying fashions.

The space holds about a thousand revelers in its three main rooms and two dance floors, which reverberate with house, dubstep, and drum and bass depending on the night or who’s manning the decks. Bars by both dance floors make it easy to grab a drink, while an intimate VIP area called the Attic provides a bird’s-eye view of the main floor and a little bottle service action for those looking to class it up a bit.

A backyard space offers smokers a retreat for puffing Dunhills between dubs, while small hidden alcoves throughout the club provide cozy breaks for new and old couples looking to sit one out.

A packed house of raucous ravers whenever it’s open, Cable is perfect for those who love that kind of scene – and they’d be wise to ring up their pals and head down early.

Tip from Jonah:

If you’re out on the town on a Saturday and don’t want the night to end, head to Cable for the Jaded after-party that lasts from 5am until Sunday afternoon. Like the venue’s mantra says: ‘Sleep is for the weak.’

Cable - gone but not forgotten
Charles F. Jun 10, 2013
A week in London on my OE (overseas experience) gave me the honour of visiting this establishment. It was a very unique bar/club, being built within the confines of the London Bridge Station. It had multiple rooms, a number of spots to purchase drinks and most importantly it had an atmosphere that most night crawlers enjoy, it was very dark and had an eerie feel to it. Sadly its uniqueness was also its downfall. The bar had to be closed as Network rail decided to redevelop the area. A night in Cable: - Tubed in with the whole crew after some pre-drinks at a friends flat. - Wandered through a couple of dark streets to get to the entrance (I really doubted my friends at one point). - Entered the club under the beautiful old brick archways of the station. - Purchased a couple of typically overpriced drinks. - Found a great spot in the dance floor to crank for the rest of the night. - Got lost trying to find the toilets. - Got lost and met new friends trying to find old friends. - Partied in all the different rooms and hidden spots of the labyrinth known as Cable. - Home for the sunrise.
Cable Nightclub review

A trip to Cable is an experience in itself, and most certainly not for one the faint-hearted. It is a place that exists outside of the constraints of time, catering to all those who refuse to believe that the party is over and wish to continue dancing late in to Sunday afternoons. It is the latest opening weekend club in London (some people joke that there are not even locks on the door) and is a magnet for those who refuse to club inside the normal hours (the Jaded section of the night runs from 5am-1pm on Sunday). Nicely tucked under London Bridge, the venue could be compared to a Vegas casino, once you enter the clock is thrown out of the window and before you know it, it's Sunday afternoon and you have to race home to get some well-needed sleep. The club carries an air of danger, all provided by the clientele, but this is part of the nightclubs charm. And from the moment you enter until you decide to leave, you will bump into your fair share of characters. You may love it, you may hate it. Cable is sure to divide opinions, but for the party animals amongst you or those eager to experience something different, the London Bridge based club will not disappoint. It is without frills, with a casual dress-code and a crowd bonded by a love for underground house music. On entering, you are immersing yourself in a sub-culture that may make some people uncomfortable, but for the open minded and the interested, the characters you will meet there and the energy of the place will be unforgettable, for good or for bad.
Cable Sundays

Aside from being an awesome, happening club during the week and weekend, Cable also features "Jaded Sunday Afterparties" that start at 5am Sunday morning! So for anyone that loves to keep on partying into the wee morning hours, this club is for you! Cable is in a convenient location just under the London Bridge and the club itself is pretty big. There are three different rooms you can hang out in depending on your mood; the upstairs balcony has comfy couches that are great for lounging, the downstairs main room has a great bar and the last room features another DJ booth and a large projection screen. Cable is a club that can cater to any person and any occasion- I encourage all to check it out if they can!
