Crikey. So many to choose from. I was a regular a Roxy’s. Remembering the  queue of scrutiny on the ramp hoping to pass the approving eye Barry Neville at the top. That satisfaction of getting in when the poor sod in front gets turned away. 
 

the long circular route around the venue before settling on spot to pay a fortune for shocking larger. 
 

I did like Sinartra’s on Sunday. A bit more relaxed.

Mind, I'd just like to add that those places belong in the past and should stay there forever as we move into a Utopian future of free wi-fi coffee bars , cycle routes and chrome sculptures.

 

 

lol

 

 

Too right. 5 deep at the bar. Pish beer. Some bloke called Shane looking across the bar shouting ‘Wat thaar loooking at.’ Slipping on vomit. Bogs that smelt Victorian. Sticky carpets. Shocking DJs that played the same set every week like “let’s do the time warp, yeeeh’ or Shania Twain’s “That don’t impress me’ to get the women up. Lads en mass trying to impress girls by chanting football songs. Fellas who wore slip on’s or black brogues and white socks. And the knobsack in the takeaway trying to be a comedian by make racist quips about ordering a Pearl Harbour Special.

A nice independent coffee bar, where you can get bottle beer or a decent coffee, feeling relaxed, enjoying a read or looking across at beautiful people.

Aye, there's nowt more relaxing after a day of toil than being surrounded by squawking middle class women.

Just a bloke. Being dragged along in a world that moves too quick for it's own good.

I loved Sinatras

 

Knew Stevie Splash quite well - and he took me on as a glass collector (I wouldn't go behind the bar - far too much like hard work). I used to spend my Sunday, Monday, Wednesday & Thursday nights in 1988 wandering round the place collecting glasses and chatting up lasses. It was a dream job. Wasn't a big drinker so used to drive home after - then go to college or Western Jean (when I'd left college) as I worked there selling jeans.

 

Friday and Saturday nights were usually also spent in town - and the best thing about being known for working in a bar was getting in all the other places free, and even waved to the front of the queue by bouncers at the other venues. It felt like being royalty.

 

There were some really lovely people working in Sinatras at the time, management team of Shane & Jean. I still think it was my most enjoyable job ever, basically getting paid to have a night out.

Like I say, relaxed. Found the atmosphere there friendly. No cattle market approach. Unfortunately, my mates preferred Roxy’s.

Agreed

 

100%

 

I forget the name of the regular DJ (It wasnt Stevie Splash) - but I'm sure his name was Steve

 

He was the un-coolest guy to look at ever but he was a brilliant DJ

I loved Cairo's, but those stairs on the way out were Brutal when you were hammered.

Regular at Roxys, then into Napoleons to lose mi taxi fare home. Got coffee and sandwiches though, before the long trek home.

 

Good to see you've got the Wapentake t shirt out, will be ordering one each for me and our kid. Ken, and possibly Les from Yorkshireman doing The Wapentake Years at Corporation towards end of July, covid restrictions permitting.
