It's a big venue under several arches, so perhaps only suitable if you have a lot of friends! Search for XXL club as they host that every week.

Didn't you already start a discussion on this? -

The Arches host other nights than XXL (that's just the biggest as it is their in-house night(s)) I believe and it is available for private hire if that's what you are after.

View London has some decent club reviews, and you can view them by nearest tube, eg (London Bridge) -

Top Table also has some, but it's mainly bars as they are mostly a restaurant site -

imho the best club/venue in the area is Corsica Studios, behind elephant and castle train station. 2 rooms, great soundsystem, friendly security and bar staff and covered outside smoking area. Djhistory have been having their infrequent lowlife parties there for the last few years

Has anybody noticed that The Arches, that also became known as Arcadia for a bit, has now changed into something called Sidings Warehouse?

Earlier this year the guy that owned it and also Pulse, moved XXL to Pulse, because Railtrack had needed it back to fix subsidence to the railway supports or something. It seems the interiors have been stripped to bare now, and it must have new owners?

Ok ... Am I just being a tad sensitive or is that remark offensive ?

Yes it is maybe a bit, but that was three years ago... just dug up this old thread to discuss the club formerly known as the Arches. Maybe should have started a new thread in this case so as not to highlight the possibly questionable sentiment of the original poster. Then again, maybe XXL would not be the best place for someone female or looking for female company as it is men only :)
