it's one of the best music venues in london
They're planning to turn it into another fucking Gastro pub. What a novel idea. There does seem to be a marked shortage of gastro pubs in london. Only last week I had to walk almost 30ft to find another one! Can you believe it!? Honestly, Gerald, it's ghastly.
i think it's disgusting how that whole area is rapidly being yuppified. maybe in 10 years time there will be no spitalfields market, only flats, offices and gastropubs.
I was in there last week.
It is a gastropub.
i like to think of it as a brilliant music venue that serves food i can't afford to eat.
Cheers for posting this
partially against my better judgement.
As I was saying yesterday, it is a hideously overpriced venue. Drinks are ridiculous, and the ticket prices always seem to be unreasonably steep.
Ticket prices for currently available shows range from £ 5 to £ 12.50
A comparable venue, for example the Luminaire, charges between £ 5 and £ 13.50 entry for its gigs
property developers = bastards with no imagination
and imagining it's the music from Jaws.
It's my new hobby
