So, this month POUT from Elaine at The Glass Bar moved to a plush new venue. Given that I hadn't had a good old dance in a while, and I wanted to celebrate dropping a few kilos, this was just too good an opportunity to miss.
If you didn't go to POUT, you missed out big time!
The Director's Lounge at Euston is in a great location - just minutes from Euston which is on both the Victoria and Northern line (24 hours). In addition, it is on a tonne of bus routes. Unfortunately the venue is downstairs, so it is no accessible; but this is the biggest challenge facing promoters at the moment - it is hard enough to find a venue with the right license, and at an affordable hire fee - sadly most of those that are accessible fall down on one or both of those areas.
If you haven't been to POUT before, it is a lovely event. The crowd is over 30, and with it friendly and sociable. You get a mixture of couples and single women - some even come alone as Elaine is a great host and introduces women to each other throughout the night.
After 10pm we are treated to the delights of DJ Jo Bunny who has a delightful way of keeping the women on their feet.
I met some lovely women, it is refreshing to be in a space where you can dance, have a decent conversation, and just relax. There is something about Elaine's events that creates a friendly and welcoming atmosphere which enables women to socialise in a relaxed way.
I took some videos at the beginning of the night before anyone arrived (video on Facebook), so you can get an idea of this venue. The next event is on Saturday 10 March (it is monthly in London, and also pops up in Brighton and Manchester from time to time). Get your tickets soon - they're cheaper in advance.
