Inspired by the hedonism and openness of the New York disco scene Horseplay is a dance club with a mixed queer crowd, a DIY houseparty vibe and a fine dusting of glitter and sleaze. It's the kind of party where people dance without inhibition through the haze of smoke, lights and lasers. Every last Friday of the month you'll find The Cavern Club transformed into a disco stables; it's a dirty underground club beneath a metal bar, with cheap beer and an intimate vibe.
