Bradley's Spanish Bar is a cool spot with an old school jukebox but upstairs - downstairs smells like piss.

Used to go to a place called The Loop which was just outside my office; 3 floors, gets crowdy after 8, when music starts! Quite bad if you reach late but it's ok for a few early drinks. Half hour happy hour too from 5 to 7.

Lower floors are awful. Ground floor is just an average bar as many others are.

That's the one. Might want to go somewhere nicer if it's your Mum though.

If I know your mum, which I dont, she's not gonna be that impressed with that place. its tiny and the only selling point is the overhyped jukebox.

I don’t get it, they’ve called the bar next door Tusk, so surely that at least had a connection.

Has looked empty whenever I have been past recently, guess they thought it needed refreshing.

Anyone been to the bar next to Noho? Themed as a Pawn shop or something… Not why they would open a bar next door surely it would just attract the same customers.

Will arrive in London late on friday evening for a weekend in the smoke. Bus to Victoria, any decent place where to go in the area for a few beers?

Also, as i will also sleep somewhere in that area, any place where to have a nice breakfast?

Thanks

Neighbourhood in Manchester is really nice. In the avenue area, feelsa bit like a living ventures type bar but a lot more relaxed. it's new though so may be a bit undiscovered so has the potential to become a cunt bar.

The Court on TCR is cheap student pub kinda thing, usually fairly lively and probably will have it on.
