The Scene

The heart of the early 90s rave scene still beats with fury at Egg, a converted warehouse with three stories of dance floors, a reverence for skilled DJs, and a twenty-four-hour license that can keep the spin worship going well...

The heart of the early 90s rave scene still beats with fury at Egg, a converted warehouse with three stories of dance floors, a reverence for skilled DJs, and a twenty-four-hour license that can keep the spin worship going well after sunrise.

Bars on every floor help lubricate the movers and shakers, allowing them to grab a shot of liquid courage no matter where they find themselves. But if one floor gets too packed – or too tame – the venue’s massive stairway provides revelers easy access to Egg’s other strobe-lit, disco ball-studded areas.

Despite all the action inside, regulars often cite the garden as the joint’s most distinguishing feature, with its crimson canopy and ring of white leather booths giving marathon clubbers a place to share a smoke and down a can of Red Stripe while sheltered from the London rain.

And since no space at Egg is complete without one, a smaller dance floor also sits in the middle of this leafy refuge, giving dubsteppers and breakbeaters one more chance to find their alfresco dance groove.

With a crowd that treats DJs as idols and a space that makes it difficult to stand still, this raucous London hotspot offers strut fiends and dancing queens pure, unbridled Egg-stacy.

Tip from Jonah:

Take the tube to King's Cross and walk a short way to the American Car Wash (68 York Way). Starting at 10pm, Egg runs a shuttle that will bring you from there right to the club.

One order of rave haven
Jodi t. Sep 3, 2013
Egg, an after-hours dance club in King's Cross, is a haven for EDM ravers across London. Its patrons are friendly, open, and happy to dance the night away. The venue has three levels with several rooms, most of which are filled with throbbing tunes and dance-friendly spaces. This all comes together to create an incredible vibe. You may lose your posse while you cross the massive stairway to explore a new area, but you will definitely be able to make new friends throughout the long night. Beware, though, you may need ample funds if you wish to power on to the early hours of the morning. The cost of drinks is high, and some revellers have taken it upon themselves to pre-game with their drink or substance of choice. A thorough security check at the entrance to the club ensures that no alcohol or drugs pass into the club. Those who are caught trying to bring party favours will have their IDs recorded, but will be let off with a nod of understanding and a warning. If you need a break from the strobe lights and loud tunes, the rooftop garden area is the perfect escape for smokers and non-smokers alike. Once you have recharged, you can join the party downstairs and go wild to the DJ’s music! For a great crowd, space and music, this is one Egg you can’t beat.
5 quid for a can of red stripe?
Josh H. Jul 2, 2013
I don't think I went to Egg on a particularly good night. I wasn't feeling too up for it and I didn't really like house anyway but me and a friend had managed to get free tickets so we thought we would check it out. After getting in and feeling ripped off buying a can of Red Stripe for 5 quid, I couldn't actually stay inside for long enough to try and enjoy the music because of how hot it was. We had come quite late so I guess people had been generating heat for a good few hours by then. There was a nice outside area though which we took a liking to, where we met various friendly people. It was a really icy night so we decided to turn on one of the timed overhead heaters outside, but were promptly told by security not to keep turning it on or he would have to call his security team, which I thought was a bit harsh. Not much point in having heaters there on a cold night and not use them. So the night was spent mostly either being too hot or too cold. Not enough seating inside meant we got told to not sit on the floor, making us feel a little more uncomfortable, almost like a dog would trying to make up his mind about where to sit. Overall, it was an experience worth doing and I'd be inclined to go again when I'm feeling more up to it. Be prepared to spend money.
A night out that you won't forget - that is, if you manage to dodge the mind-altering drugs
Aja G. Jun 19, 2013
A lot of things contribute to the quality of a club experience: the music, the layout, the people. But something that I always look for is the pace, the way that all of these things fit together and the rhythm that it creates. I enjoy dancing, so the club must have a steady pulse or my own heart aches a bit. Club Egg is a multi-level dance club that sits kitty-corner to King's Cross Station. The crawl of the fog and the smell of the ecstasy-inducing sweat can be observed as soon as you take a step out of the station, which is a good thing because you may never be able to find it otherwise. Unlike the American clubs I've gone to, Egg opens particularly late at 11am. If you're an eager beaver, you will find yourself standing in the middle of an empty dance floor, feeling EDM beats thunder through your chest all by your lonesome. Nobody shows up until around 1:30am, but once the crowd begins to roll in, the party truly gets started. People aren't afraid to dance, possibly due to the lack of visibility produced by the fog machine and disco lights or perhaps they are simply so high on any number of different drugs that they simply do not care. Whatever the case, this is the opportunity to get out and dance off that extra Yorkshire pudding from lunch time. Drinks are fairly expensive, but not so much more than any other place in London - a rum and cola will likely cost you 5 pounds. But don't drink too much; a weak bladder will wind you up in the shadowy sex fortress of a bathroom, where it's more common than not to see several pairs of legs underneath a stall. If you make it out of the bathroom without a necessary appointment to the clinic, the outdoor patio is a great place to rest your feet and have a smoke. A lot of people congregate outside and cool off from the sweaty should-to-shoulder space of the dance floor. It's a nice addition that makes it easier to revamp and stay out for several more hours. Hell, if you're up for it, rumor is that staying until Egg closes (roughly 8am) means a free breakfast - it can't be called "Egg" for nothing! Overall, Egg is a fun place to go dancing with friends and meet some new interesting people. Just beware of the prominent drug scene and the forensics nightmare of a bathroom.
