20th Apr 2012 - Pretty cool place, lively without being packed with overly trendy muppets. The music was pretty cool and There was a jukebox or at least something that my eyes thought looked like one. Plenty of seats at the bar which meant we got to chat to a couple of random strangers one of which turned out to be the worlds friendliest brit. He had lived in canada for a while and apparently its normal to go out and chat to strangers. The ceiling was covered in bra's and according to our new pal he witnessed one lady putting one up on his last visit. Next up a knob end arrived in a blazer and the barman immediately told him to remove it or leave. He said it was the only time he had ever worn it out and didn't want to take it off. The bouncers managed to change his mind pretty rapidly! It was all pretty friendly and the decent selection of bourbons and camden brewery beers made my day. The toilet is a s**t hole but that doesn't bother me. Great late night venue, not that I have the stamina for late nights any more.

18th Apr 2012 - The website says you'll feel like you've left London and ended up in an LA dive bar. While I can't really vouch for the 'LA' part of that statement, the rest is certainly true. I've only been once, early evening on a Thursday, but I did quite take to it. It's the sort of place where it is perpetually 2am. As the name suggests they have lots of liquor, so this is a hard drinking bar and there's nothing wrong with that. Not entirely sure why there are hundreds of bras hanging from the ceiling, but there are, and again it can only be an indication of past good times!
