''Portsmouth Uni Takes over Liquid Nightclub with Calvin from Hollyoaks''
I'd rather tear up my own heartbeat, thanks
I absolutely refute that you jumped up little tit-box.
''some of it seemed alright, but fratton was an absolute dive.''
But whole heartedly agree with this sentiment.
Everything is nicely balanced.
I think the whole of Portsmouth is a strange coalescence of Salford estates and Spanish harbours.
Unfortunatley I seem to have placed myself in the former...and, to make things worse...Fratton allegedly has one of the highest mugging rates in Britain.
"How can we possibly be the most dangerous city in the country when there are 10 times as many murders in London?"

is fantastic. Improves the overall quality of the city tenfold.
It's like a shoebox full of Brio
But there's no room for ''playing''...no room for drunken rampage
Basically, the nightspots are minimal (but there are some beautiful churches)
nah if you know your way around there is loads of space for drunken rampage, cos it's a fairly quiet city there's loads of cool stuff.
i was in winchester for college so i did alot of outdoor underage drinking/getting high in winchester
I know the area pretty well now. It is nice, picareque etc...but, personally, I dont think it's ideal for students/young adults.
It lacks any sort of vibrancy, any decent drum'n'bass/dubstep/funky house evenings. The small venues could be utilized for little raves.
but as it's my hometown in a way (actually lived 13 miles away...) going back is fucking brilliant. i'm used to going out in london. so going to the pub in winch is always immense cos i see people i know.
Places like ''The Black Buoy'' etc.
i played there in melesmeles band
I went to college there too Mister Wiggy, Peter Symonds? Railway used to be great actually... Monday night Candle Club open mic, god you got some shit in there!
Never heard of it
the best pub in winchester i can't remember the name of, it's next to the cat grounds, and is really really tiny. and it's not the old market. it's the kind of pub that you could walk in a find a wizard sitting in the corner, but you wouldn't be surprised...
and The_Living_Year : yes symonds, the only alternative being winchester college itself which is posh even for winchester haha
I've lived here about 3 years and never been down there. I'm going exploring tomorrow. Thanks :)
i'll check the place out tomorrow =]
nights out in winchester would always end in moloko's when I was there with me drunkenly shouting at the dj for having the audacity to cut off the 9 minute version of fools gold he had in the break.
Bumbler go to St. Catherines Hill its lovely
The whole city is imbued with a really unpleasant atmosphere. It's probably something to do with the bad post-war achitecture and the high proportion of rapey sailors.
Wedgerooms Rooms is good though.
It's usually down Guildhall Walk
Drinks at the honest, love albert road day (although i heard it's no longer going?) hong kong tea bar opposite the dole office on comercial road, Clarence Pier!!. *sigh*
