  • friday drinks at the snow

  • This is a brilliant idea! 'Less east' are the Carpenter's Arms on Cheshire Street E2 (dunno how people feel about proximity to Brick Lane though), The Royal Oak on Columbia Road. Also, around London Fields is The Dove on Broadway Market, which has a massive selection of beers. More east is The Lauriston on the west side of Victoria Park.

    And although it's a bar not a pub, Bar Music Hall on Curtain Road EC2 has massive windows to watch bikes from and is very quiet during the week.

  • So...

    Tues night is Trixie Chix (?)
    Wed night is South London Polo
    Thurs night is Westie Drinks
    Friday night drinks at Jon Snow
    Sunday is Brick Lane Polo.

    Jees! Unless we do Monday night drinks (ouch), we are going to have to clash with something. Wednesday or Friday night would probably be stepping on the least number of toes. Anyone have a preference?

  • vic Also, around London Fields is The Dove on Broadway Market, which has a massive selection of total fucking bellends in inapropriately yoof getup, quaffing their leffe blonde and chortling to each other like smug yuppie cunts, to choose from.

    i agree with you there, vic.

  • pj (pj) [quote]Sano Royal Inn on the Park? at the junction of Grove Road and Wetherell Road E3, right in the middle of Victoria Park.

    There's big beer terrace with railings to lock bikes on the indside, as well as a seperate room where we could all sit, will take about 20 people. They also do food and have free wifi if that matters.

    this is the one - good pub, loads of space, plenty of windows to watch bike stack. good food.

    not quite infected by the hipster plague yet either. sort of in that stage after the initial bite, prior to the blood/ internal organ explosion.[/quote]

    Twopenn'orth: I think this venue seems the best so far, not anywhere near the stolen-bike-bermuda-triangle that is Dalston/Whoreditch/Dick Lane.

    HA! Used to be alright in there about ten years ago.

    You OLD men! ;p

    I think pj hates the Lauriston too! Is there a pub in London that doesn't have a clientele that isn't made up of at least 50-60% nobbers though? What does it matter as long as there's your pals and some decent beverages, and your bike doesn't get nicked?

    Looks like we'll be heading for some disgusting dingy boozer that stinks of piss instead, eh?

  • Good point vic.

    I'm 36. I've lived round there for 10 years. The Dove was a nice pub back then. It's still OK.

    No to a stinky pissy pub please.

    Most pubs will have bikes nicked outside em, but brick lane's gotta be asking for it.

    I've never been to this Royal whatsit on Viccy Park, could be worth a look. Maybe it'll fun to be at the forefront of jazzification (my word for hipsterisation). Maybe we can do some drunken racing on the park after closing?!

  • i say this on behalf of everyone, BROWN'S :p

  • royal oak is a good call. and plenty of space by the side of the park for tricks and giggles. roll on the summer. roll on i say

  • dale what is it with you and Browns?

  • Skullhead dale what is it with you and Browns?

    nothing, it's just a nice establishment, with good quality family entertainment!

  • jonny royal oak is a good call. and plenty of space by the side of the park for tricks and giggles. roll on the summer. roll on i say

    +1. Also there's the Fleapit cafe bar right next to the Columbia polo court too, and the Ravenscroft over the road from it.

  • The Ravenscroft? You LOVE smelly pissy pubs really.

  • Skullhead The Ravenscroft? You LOVE smelly pissy pubs really.

    Actually is it called the Birdcage now? I've never been in there though - just suggested it because I realised I never visited it. But you have explained why I haven't! - I must have some natural inbuilt/subconscious pissy-pub aversion.

  • aah the Birdcage. Not much better, but is becoming hipster slowly. the railings there are a regular haunt of the same gang that 'do' the Prince of Thieves on a regular basis, apparently.

    @jonny Not the Royal Oak, the Royal Inn. Its on Grove road apparently. Sano's suggestion.

  • so has anything been decided, I'm trying to wrestle the wriggling recalcitrant masses that are the south side drinking crew, and its not going well, I'm hoping some sort of consensus has been created here, a critical mass of thinking so that a pub and night are chosen. For what its worth I would avoid doing any regular drinking thing on a friday, too many ways for people to drop out/be sidetracked.
    Am I correct in the assumption that The Royal Inn on the Park is the front runner?

  • Hope so Corny.

    I like going out on Mondays.

  • The Royal Inn on the Park on a Monday?

    Sounds good to me :)

  • what?? you guys have finally settled it???

  • Take note murtle!

    ;-P

  • aw!! does that mean you can't take gnasher??

  • 31t®um what?? you guys have finally settled it???
