fave boozers in London Town (cut out and keep, kids
no time today to get into details but check these out whilst you can before the tesco/whetherspoons wnkrs get their tentacles on them...
montague arms (new cross) - MAD! old ladies serve at the bar, dub music in background, stagecoach in the corner driven by horseheads, a taxidermist's psychedelic fantasy
three blind mice (shoreditch) - tiny basement, intimate, loud, jazzy
griffin (shoreditch) - proper old raver's boozer
old blue last (shoreditch) - not sure if they still do them but this was the messiest aftersession in town - a chaos pub (if that's your scene) (see also The Dolphin, Hackney)
horse & groom (shoreditch) - THE pub du jour
lock tavern - rooftop (chalk farm) - not as cool as it was 5 years but they still get good names in; demon roasts too
star of bethnal green - formerly horible indie dive the pleasure unit; now home to some wicked parties
the prince (brixton) - DEX is upstairs - quality parties on the right night; hot tub on a rooftop anyone?
the roebuck (richmond hill) - the most amazing views in town
the ten bells (spitalfields) - lovely post-work hangout pre/post curry, shame about the rest of spitalfields tho..
the castle (farringdon) - ultimate pre-club pub - where you go pre-fabbers
there's a couple in Angel, one on borough market and a load more around hoxton I quite like but memory's hazy
