Toilets as bad as always. Bar staff better than my last visit. £4.10 for a pint of Guinness in a PLASTIC tumbler - west end of London for a very poor experience. Door charge to cover drag DJ one presumes. The worst furniture has been replaced, but the bar stools look as though a dog has been eating them. The... More

If you go to Blackpool, don't miss The Flying handbag, it was a brilliant night, lots of fit blokes to look at, we met the dancers from Funny Girls there as well, it was friendly and fun

Great night, free entry straight from Funny Girls. Great night, excellent tunes. Few touchy folk trying to fight which was a little unnerving. We left early because of that... But otherwise very good.
