In just two more days, the much anticipated Joe Cools London opens its doors on Friday 18th December 2009. Due to the ridiculous response, the opening night is now becoming the opening weekend which alone is bound to even put New Years Eve to shame!
Yes, so its finally happening, Joe Cools is finally opening right here in London. You may remember back in September there was mention of it opening in early December, however after a short delay the time is now upon us. Many Durban locals and Gauteng vakansie goers will understand the hype surrounding the legendary club at its original location right on Durbans North Beach, and now our main man Guy Van Der Post, owner of Joe's in Durban and many other clubs in South Africa, has given us our very own one right here on our doorsteps, well just about.
Joe Cools London is situation at 4 Fulham High Street in Fulham, in easier terms for us saffas, the venue formerly known as Zulu's, which in itself has seen its fair share of prime South African jolling... trust me I should know 🙂
The club boasts 2 dance floors, 5 bars, a sun deck (which should be awesome in summer) and can pack in 900 jolling Saffas, so it sounds like its gonna be wild. If the decor of Joe Cools Durban is anything to go by, then you know that its gonna look absolutely amazing. If you were like me and lucky enough to get complimentary tickets for opening night on Friday, best you get your party shoes and disco pants on because oh dear, its gonna be insane.
Unfortunately there are no more comps available for Friday due to the incredibly high response, however if you send your details via their website at http://www.joecoolslondon.com you can still get for Saturday night. They will be letting in people without tickets on Friday night after 21:30pm, however this will depend on the amount of people in the club at the time, however I'd say its worth a shot as you're bound to have some early birds bailing early.
If you're new to London and weren't fortunate enough to experience Zulu's in its prime, here's directions from Wimbledon...
By Train: District Line to Putney Bridge, come out the station, walk up to the main road where all the buses are coming from (Fulham High Street), turn right, walk passed the robots and on another 100m and its on your left just before the roundabout (trust me you can't miss it)
By Bus: Take the 93 from Wimbledon Station, get off where it terminates at Putney Bridge Station, walk up to the main road where all the buses are coming from before you turned into the station (Fulham High Street), turn right, walk passed the robots and on another 100m and its on your left just before the roundabout (trust me you can't miss it)
Don't ask me to explain how to get back to the station from Joe's because I rarely managed to achieve this in a memorable state when I used to frequent the venue, so I'll leave that up to you 🙂
There are a couple of Bar Staff positions going, so if you're hot, funky, got the vibe and believe you've got the mustard, send your CV and a pic over to, [email protected] and tjoon them you're a PharSider 🙂
See ya'll this weekend for one MASSIVE jol!
