Ginglik is truly an 'underground' club nestling as it does under Shepherd's Bush Green - in a former public toilet. Supernaturally friendly staff, and the hard-to-spot entrance have given it a real local feel - and the regular crowd all seem to know each other, the musicians and the staff. The venue plays host to comedy, live music and movie nights, as well as lots of excellent DJs. Narrowly escaping a threatened closure early in 2009, thanks to the untiring efforts of Ginglik's organisers Tam and Col, the much loved club has had a reprieve. It's dark, dingy and utterly individual. Just watch out for the really torrential downpours - when it's cats and dogs it's likely to be a bit soggy on the inside too. It's always worth keeping an eye on the line up - you never know what you might find. Robin Williams did a surprise gig here one dark November night and my cousin Gabby appeared with her 'Other Animals' band the time before that. Lucikly, despite some starry guests the place remains resolutely (and literally) down to earth. London could do with more places like this.
