Assembly is a great spot if you are going out to dance and enjoy solidly played/ mixed music of your genre of choice. The key to Assembly is to make sure that the night you go, the music being played is something you enjoy otherwise it can be a little painful, as on any given night you may only hear one genre at its most extreme – played all night. The venue prides itself on delivering an audio-visual experience and does so well, with dedicated personnel managing all of these areas. My personal favourite nights are the “Discotheque” sessions, but keep your eye on their website for the latest details and event news, as well as a host of info on the South African music scene.
