Can it really be ten years since we first set dancing foot in the pit that is the dancefloor of Shadow Lounge? Ten years since we peered around the curtain into the VIP room to see Cilla Black regaling Paul O’Grady with stories of The Cavern while he secretly slept behind sunglasses? Ten years since we got glitter all over our best jackets off the walls of the nightclub that was always part Tramp, part trampy? Well, yes it can. In fact, it is. Ten long years and we only look younger. And to celebrate a decade of giving succour to the drunk and the needy, the Shadow Lounge – never knowingly not totally fabulous, daaaarling, etc. – is throwing a knees-up for members old, new and future. The date you need to book your colourist (who’ll probably be down there anyway) is 28th July, also known as next Thursday. Everyone else will be allowed in after all the free booze has been drunk.
