Once booked in you will be informed of the venue with one hours’ notice but everything else will remain secret including the menu, so get booking for evenings of gastronomic good times with a difference.
Club: This Friday XOYO plays host to hot Glaswegian DJ and producer Rustie who will be spinning his much lauded neon rave tunes at the EC2A club.
