I'm thinking the Hope and Anchor probably wins this hands down.
Anyone got any other nominations?
the tavern in new cross, pre-corporatisation. the catapult club there is pretty dingey too.
brilliant dingy place. with dogs!
i was very, very glad.
i tend to freeze whenever a dog barks near me, i become physically and mentally unable to function.
so, yeah - glad i didn't see the dogs.
I'd forgotten the Windmill.
I think it looks like it should be a dodgy seaside cafe.
I'm not sure why.
Neon signs, sticky floors, falling apart, mirrors on the stage... fleapit archetype. Love it.
On the rocks just makes me want to cry. It would be on my 'nuke list' of london venues.
although the dublin castle was pretty made up until it got a makeover a few years back.
Both in London and in Cardiff. I also love Birmingham's academy. Dinge, love it. I also love The Ghetto on Tottenham Court Road. Dingy, seedy and sticky floors. Fucking great stuff.
isn't really dingy, just a bit shabby.
the dark is more forgiving.
you like BIRMINGHAM Academy? Yuck, that place is HIDEOUS. It's only 5 years old, you know that? It's been filthy and disgusting since the day it opened. No match for lovely Snobs.
In London, so far my favourite places are Tatty Bogle's and the Buffalo Bar - both nice and cosy and red.
unfortunately it's a well oiled corporate machine to give the appearance of dinge and an "authentic experience", so i refuse to count it.
Metros and Barfly! So many memories!
And of course Molokos many a night has disappeared from my memory thanks to vodka in there!
for it's snazzy retro look and tatty boggles for being, well, tiny. although i haven't been to either enough times to make them favourite venues of mine.
been to 100 CLub!
there once. the audience were very young and very stylish.
upstairs in dempseys
the park fuckin vaults
the place on city road - the rum and biscuit or some fucking thing (before they did it up)
the old crwys
the old macky
and who could ever forget the last chance shag saloon: the philharmonic...
HAHAHA KEEP OUT YOU UNWELSH FAGGOTS. MUUUHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA..
found any rohypnol yet?
I wanna relax some disers so rthey won't feel it up the back passage!
I WANT YOU TO LOOK DEAD!
It's all lovely downstairs and then the actual bit with the bands is FILTHY. mmm.
On The Rocks has the odd ability to completely infuse every item of clothing you have and your hair with the smell of week old cigarettes.
