The Girl Guide London team have taken over this week’s Top 5 and are telling us about the best mid-week nights out, because Tuesdays are the new Fridays, right?

We’ve all had that Sunday night feeling; it’s  been a blast, you’ve had a couple of fab nights out  and survived the hangover, but now the weekend’s over – and you’ve got a full five working days until it’s back again.  But why wait for the weekend? There are some great nights out just for us girls pretty much every day of the week! If you’ve got the stamina, here’s the Girl Guide London list of top 5 mid week parties.

Pink Drinks & Lipstick Galore! The Pink Lobster Dating Launch – by Effi Mai

11 Feb

As a femme, the Pink Lobster Launch couldn’t have come quick enough. It’s a dating website for femmes to meet other femmes but not only that, it stands to change the way the lesbian world sees ladylike women. You can be girly, and you can be gay.

The party was held in the sensational nightclub The Shadow Lounge which has an impressive dance floor that looks like a moving Rubik cube and cute little cubby holes where you can talk or kiss or…kiss some more.  The place was full of women from all scenes and places ready to see what the whole thing was about.

The music was incredible. Opening was Nicolette Street who had the girls tapping their feet to the relatable lyrics, ‘All those little things I do, there’s just no getting over you.’ You can tell she really enjoys singing. There’s nothing worse than watching a performer stand up who looks like they just lost their hamster in a horrible accident involving a vacuum cleaner.

Bashema was as absurdly good as I thought she’d be, her voice sounding a cross between Eva Cassidy and Aretha Franklin. JOANovARC headlined filling the stage with their glam outfits, stylish hair and looking every bit rock and roll with their guitars and drums. Among the originals from their live album, they did a very apt cover of Katy Perry’s I kissed a girl which of course had the ladies swishing their dresses about on the dance floor.

The LGBT charity the Lproject finished off the performers with the proceeds from the night going straight to them. Everyone also sang happy birthday to Sophia Antone Malone, the Project Coordinator and singer. Sipping on a vodka and cranberry I met a lot of women who also thought the site would be a success and looked forward to getting on it and swapping details.

There was a few on the guest list from the people supporting Juliette on her venture and the bloggers and advice columnists on the site. You got a free lipgloss with your £11.50 ticket drumming the whole femme theme in even more then the pink drinks and lipstick.

Juliette and her partner Nickki were the perfect couple in their floor length gowns and showed that you can be proud to a femme. It was an amazing atmosphere, it had some marvellous music, it had skyscraper heels and it was a place you could dress up in your glitter and skirts and meet a sexy woman doing the same thing. A brilliant party and a start to something huge happening this year.
