The top London alternative and fetish clubs are joining forces for Night of Venus. This brand new event is the brainchild of Franco Carta, aka Dionisus. Having spent years organising live gigs, bands and club nights, Dionisus has put together his vision of alternative clubbing ,which we expect will become an annual event on the London calendar.
Night of Venus will be held at The Den, 18 West Central Street WC1A 1JJ, a short walk from Tottenham Court Rd or Holborn tube stations and right in the heart of the West End.
This awesome venue was formerly known as The End and belonged to clubbing and dance music guru Mr C from the Shamen. The club has now re-opened under new management and is once again hosting some of London’s hottest and most successful club nights. With a capacity of 900 people and the club’s legendary sound system, you can expect that same electrifying atmosphere which made it world famous! The layout is amazing, with an updated lighting rig and state of the art lasers. With Banksy-style urban graffiti installations in the main Den and the Den lounge it is a very cool urban dance venue.
Doors open at 10pm until 6am. On the decks, making you dance in the dirtiest of ways, we will have David TG from Torture Garden, Jo The Waiter from Antichrist, Dirty DJ’s Marky Moo and Simon Iridium from the Skin Two Rubber Ball and Club Subversion, DJ Angel from Glamorama, Powertrip and Inferno, Caroline Vain from Inferno and Full Tilt and Paladin from Synthetic Culture. The music on the night will be a mixture of everything from Electro and Breaks through to EBM and Industrial.
Live on stage you will be able to watch with wonder and amazement, an erotic aerial performance from the acclaimed Empress Stah, twisted cabaret from Sybhan, extreme bloody performance from Sex0r and a wonderful burlesque act from Princess Angelique. If play is your thing, here will also be a big dungeon playroom …

We also have leather-man and armourer extraordinaire Max Kane present on the night where he will have a stall showing his wares, which will be available for purchase. Max has made armour and clothing for many blockbusting Hollywood movies and we are honoured to have him join us for our night.
And last but by no means least – For the more blood thirsty among you we will be having a real live Gladiator fight courtesy of our great friend Max Kane who will be performing with an assortment of beautiful ladies in tow against the much feared Gladiator’s Champion Andrea!
Picture the scene…..
Each of our Gladiators will be led separately into the arena of battle by our beautiful ladies. The Gladiator’s Champion Andrea will be masked, ready for battle and will have rose petals thrown in his path as he enters. His challenger is Max and he too is masked and ready for battle. He too will also be led in by beautiful ladies but he will be chained because he challenges our feared champion and there is no escape from our arena of death…..
Introducing our great warriors will be our stunning Domina. Our Domina will introduce the Titans of the arena to the awestruck crowd by their names and by their skills as a gladiator. During this time our Titans will be unmasked before they stand before our Domina and shout “We who are about to die salute you!”
The fight will be signalled to begin by Domina and there will be blood shed for the baying masses! Expect the death of a Titan warrior before your very eyes!
Only one Gladiator will leave our arena of battle alive with the victors golden crown of leaves upon his head – The other will face the Gods of the Underworld and will be dragged lifeless from the arena!
An amazing array of performances and spectacles await you at Night of Venus along with our top DJ’s from some of the World’s top fetish and alternative nights – Don’t miss this chance to unleash your fantasies by joining us at the Night of Venus!
