“c'mon everybody, do Afflecks really care!”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Been coming here for 32 years and it is still a great place to walk around and take it all in with some interetsing and nostalgic stuff to buy as well. if anything now we are old (well some of us) perhaps a bar and food would be good!!

“Afflecks has really gone Upmarket!”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Not too long ago, Afflecks was dark, odd and a bit depressing. But it's really gone upmarket. It's brightened up a lot and there are lots of independent shops inside which are lovely. It's not just for goths and emos anymore, I imagine most people would enjoy it!

“Love it...”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

I'm not from a counter culture group, being a middle aged man, but I love going around this 4 floor building looking (and buying) unusual items from the many different stands and shops. It caters for bric-a-brac, Japanese sub cultures, heavy metal there's a sex shop, fancy dress shop, joke shops, bung shops, tattoo artists, piercing salons and a great little cafe at the top.

“Fantastic shopping venue”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

For anything alternative head to Afflecks. I have been going here on and off for as long as I remember.... 25yrs? Retro clothes, hairdressers, accessories, food, records, cd's, posters, jewellery and so so much more, Well worth the visit to the many different floors, stalls and mini units. Brilliant.
