Suggestions plz? Preferably not clubz
What day? What part of London?
aldgate, club downstairs, bar upstairs. prices not bad. free entry, open til 4am.
It's shit and overcrowded with the "OMG I'm too cool to even move but talk at the top of my voice about my latest photography project" crowd
for 'indie types'.
Only thing i know is Afterskool, and i don't think that's amazing.
big red is genuinely shit.
Oh they play metal LOL. Lets perve on the barmaids LOL.
But if you live in Holloway, it's enshrined in law that you like and promote it to others
not too pricey
plenty of character
lots of pool tables
I can't remember where it was, but it was full on like a French bistro. And you can sit and drink wine to your heart's content. And then order some food. It was ace.
Except it was with work and this bloke brought his friend along and she ordered toulouse sausages and then when they arrived went "Oh are these meat? I'm a vegetarian", and then they both left without paying leaving moi to pick up the bill. He got an earful on Monday I can assure you
I mean if I see sausages on a menu (IN A FRENCH RESTAURANT) I would probably assume first that they were meat.
"Steak? But I thought it would be Quorn!"
'vegetarian' in front of them, then they are going to be meat. ffs.
It came with bacon on top; the staff didn't seem to feel this was weird.
it's been too long since i last went there. someone organise drinks there soon please? and invite me.
i was taken to a basement bar off frith street that's pretty cool. it's decorated like an old-style mafia hangout/speakeasy with someone playing 7-inches from an old record player in a corner. if only i know the name of the place...
Love that place.
the internet tells me they're one and the same.
I've been there till 6am and it was still open. I'm sure it does close at some point.
During hte day is lovely and homely and has a cat
KEBAB SHOP! PUB!
but the licensing authorities had a sniff and decided it wasn't on. Crobar is ace.
they deserve to be locked up..they've been involved in far more dodgy stuff than running an unlicensed bar.
Crobar is full of cunts...you can have good fun drawing faces on breasts though
1. Met Diamuid Garvin in there. Mate of mine went back to his house with all his mates and stayed up all night having a drinking session in his kitchen
2. Some black woman shouting "I NEED A WHITE COCK IN ME", and some guy going "Hi"
3. I was wearing an Irish rugby badge. Thsi massive bloke comes over, points at it and goes, "I'm gonna smash your head in you stupid Aussie cunt"
It sounds like something he'd say
The rest of it fits, right enough.
Shame. There was a stretch of three or four months back in my In A Band days when I'd seemingly end up there about once a week.
I might be going with a couple of friends who are down from Edinburgh for the weekend.
They'd pass you around like a beach ball.
Even though it's out of date and you're so drunk you can't speak
Certainly I can never remember having been thrown out of the place.
I was too hungover / had to drive to consider it.
especially if you sit in the bit at the back that looks like a bomb shelter.
They have the surliest bartender of all time, you have to scream at him to get service. They play horribly loud metal all night, and there is a sign saying, 'you can't afford our jukebox'.
