The IslandOne of the West End's finest dance music venues, The Island manages to keep the drunken Soho crowds away by being exceedingly well concealed in an alleyway behind Charing Cross Station. Inside, there are three very smart rooms, all of them with Funktion 1 soundsystems producing a crisp acoustic that's perfect for the Friday and Saturday house music parties.
