noticed a year or two ago that the lines between the young and the old are increasingly blurred. In fact, so blurred I'm not sure they're visible anymore. People want to go out and play, regardless of age and will not settle for any old night out.

As I read the book following our interview, I learnt of Neil's work in nightclubs, busting dealers that were pushing drugs to revellers. It's work that I'm sure he'd freely admit did nothing to dent the 'war on drugs'. So when London nightclub Fabric closed, it got me thinking. What will this mean for the city, and it's criminals? I called Neil to get his thoughts.

Closing Down Fabric Is Not The Answer To The Rising Number Of Club Drug Casualties

f you also involved the Local Government Association and the sympathetic chief constables that do exist, this could fund more drug workers on the ground, roll out more drug testing, pay for targeted and credible social marketing campaigns and so on. This is not about condoning drug use, it's about trying to reduce harm and save lives and it has to be better to give it a whirl than imagine you can deal with drug incidents simply by shutting the door.

If you're after a clubbing experience like this though you might be saddened to know that these one-night-only events are as secret as the more widely known Secret Cinema nights. Before you get there you'll only know that you're in for a good night, but nothing else is given away.

For us, it was everything. It was our weekend. It was amazing music. It was amazing atmospheres. It was amazing dancing. It was letting your hair down. It was having fun with your mates. It was forgetting your world and escaping. It was getting dressed up. It was getting drunk. It was meeting new boyfriends and girlfriends. It was feeling free.

A rapid rate of redevelopment combined with huge changes to London's transport infrastructure mean that of late there has been a much larger cull of our cultural hotspots, the beating heart of the capital.

Brits Are Still in Love with Rave Culture

To jump to the conclusion that it's all down to market forces - that young people just don't want to go to clubs anymore - is ill-informed and misleading. Legendary London venues such as Turnmills, The Cross, Cable, The End and more all closed due to the effects of gentrification and the siren call of property developers - not lack of demand.

Ibiza Isn't Just About Drugs

The majority of people know there's more to Ibiza. Yet media scaremongering leads us to believe we shouldn't visit destinations like the White Isle due to its club culture.

Watered Down Watered-Down Whiskey, Unhealthy Selfies and Men Having to Pay Entrance. The Sexism of Clubs.

The clubs' owners are clearly hoping that if they just get enough women to passively wander in, the men will follow, pay their over-priced entrance fee and then proudly make the most of their gender pay gap to buy an abundance of drinks at the bar.

No stay in Goa would be complete without a trip to Club Cubana, situated between Baga and Anjuna in the Arpora Hill. Dubbed the 'night club in the sky', the climb to the top is well worth it as its picturesque views are equalled by its hedonistic atmosphere.

Boasting some of the Med's most spectacular coastline, gloriously unspoilt beaches and a rich history, Ibiza's reputation as a clubber's paradise hides just how much there is to do. Yes, there's a lot more to the White Isle than superclubs and dancing till dawn.

Inherently, nightlife and where to find a good party has always been a priority of students. The happiness one can achieve from standing in a room listening to FatBoy Slim's successor, whilst having others sweat hit them in the face like the satchel of a londoner running for the tube, is dubious if anything.

I'm all for combating the media's unrepresentative portrayal of women as sexual objects. It is my view that the genders are equal. But does that mean we have to put up with men being portrayed in this damaging light as a consequence? I don't think that's particularly helpful for anyone. Do you?

There are few places in the world where high end steaks and high end clubbing go hand in hand. In theory, the combination shouldn't really work; steaks are heavy, filling and indulgent whereas clubbing requires a light, energetic approach to see you through.

The reality is, whatever we are scared of and whatever the solution might be, we shouldn't force ourselves to do it and carry on regardless. Sometimes we need to look for alternatives or a way to discuss our fears and find somebody that is willing to help you resolve them.

What I Learned In Ibiza

The beach was not the chilled-out haven I'd imagined, with thumping club tunes broadcast across the sand from 12am and frighteningly sunburned girls shrieking expletives because someone had moved their sun lounger a little too close. The boys in matching Baywatch outfits appeared too exhausted even to leer, their vision saturated by the flesh on show.
