Attica's house parties: Costumed debauchery

Stay away if costumed antics aren’t your thing. The Attica parties aren't for the shy
For its 5th anniversary, Attica threw a mega-spectacular Carnival themed party, replete with costumes and circus freaks

You have to be a little shameless with a 'look-at-me!' complex to be up for one of the famous Attica house parties -- they're loud, rowdy and always a ton of fun. Attica and its sister nightclub Attica Too are virtual magnets for the wild, whacky and weird set, but everyone gets prepped up for a night of debauchery, Ibiza-style.

AtticaCome early to avoid the queue. Just don't expect to leave early.Case in point -- for its Attica Carnival 5th anniversary party earlier in May, Attica festooned the place with carnival streamers and enough circus décor to make Krusty the Clown proud. Think lollipops, candy floss, air brushed tattoos and a massive bouquet of floating balloons. Even before setting foot into the club, the clubs had long queues snaking away from the entrance. The clubbers were decked out in all sorts of whimsical costumes -- playboy bunnies being the choice of the ladies and a favorite among the men.

True to its New York-style hip nightspot concept, it's a flood of the bold and beautiful inside on the Attica dance floor, grooving to a DJ battle between Nuskool vs Oldskool hip hop. The carnival continued till 7 a.m. with revellers staggering out into the harsh light of day, their hands sticky from sweets, throats sore from revelry and costumes a little worse for wear.

Don’t fret if you missed the sugar rush. Attica Too will be having its costumed birthday carnival in October, while Attica will hold a Dirty Vegas theme party at the end of September. Sign up at their website for updates and invites to their parties.
