Having friends who are friends of club owners has it's advantages :)
The door bitch outside reluctantly gave us entry tokens, while a queue was starting to form just before 11pm.
Still, an unplanned club visit left me feeling a little underdressed in jeans and slightly ratty casual shoes.
The club was filled with incense, which was not entirely unpleasant, although it was a bit confusing to the senses which insisted of thinking of a quiet temple. Eventually, the doof doof of the RnB and House music won out.

We had tried to get into Silk Road, but it looked a bit too posh for
an unplanned visit. Perhaps next time...
Just as well we didn't try... the decor is over the top!

Harsh comments though!
I love the eating concept at Silk Road, kind of like a food court, except the builder was Kubla Khan not Westfield and your stately pleasure dome is fuelled by flashy $29 cocktails rather than opium pipes. If the food had been better and it had arrived in reasonable time, I'd be happy to hitch another ride.
