Sublime Night That's Getting Its Claws into Clubbers
Byline: Claire Smith
IF YOU look up from the dancefloor and see a set of Pterodactyl claws hanging overhead, you know you must be in Sublime.
This is a club which prides itself on its visuals - from the black cloth draped from the rooftop to the splattered UV paint and the seven-foot dinosaur claws.
Sublime uses the logo of a meditating Buddha on fliers and posters - which may seem a strange choice for a club which features suspended reptile parts.
But promoter Scott Conchar explains: "Buddhism doesn't dictate to people and neither do we. We just want to let people find the music for themselves." Sublime isn't the kind of place people go to pose, but to get completely sweaty and carried away on the dance floor to a mix of techno and trance.
You won't find a sea of designer labels here. Big baggy trousers, roomy trainers and the kind of tiny tops that keep you cool are the favoured look.
The crowd is a healthy mix of ages and occupations - Sublime has a large membership - and many of the regulars have been coming since the club first opened its doors six years ago
On a busy night as many as 500 sweaty punters can be packed on to the main dancefloor - working themselves into a frenzy to tracks played by regular DJs Kev Wright and DJ Idge.
If things get too hot and sweaty you can pull back and watch the action with a drink on the balcony which runs around the main dancefloor. …
