For those of you who know us, the Batcave is our favorite place to hang out. Here's a little insight...

The Batcave was a nightclub in London, England at Meard Street, Soho. It is considered to be the birthplace of the English goth subculture. As one of the most famous meeting points for early goths, it lent its name to the term Batcaver, used to describe fans of the original gothic rock music. The term Batcave is also still used by Europeans to refer to Gothic music with a prominent Post-Punk sound and spooky atmospheres.

The club opened in July 1982. Originally specialising in New Wave and Glam rock, it later focused on Gothic rock. Famous regulars at the Batcave included legends such as Robert Smith, Siouxsie Sioux, Steve Severin, Foetus, Marc Almond and Nick Cave. Much of the image and fashion used by the subculture can be traced back to the bands who played at the Batcave.

“For some the Batcave has become an icon, but for those that know it is an iconoclast, it is the avenging spirit of nightlife's badlands - its shadow looms large over London's demi-Monde: It is a challenge to the false Idol. It Will Endure."

I would also like to give a special shout out the The Austin Batcave. They are always looking for volunteers to help children expand their creativity. J Check out the link below….
