bloody hell, this thread ia a runaway train, scary beer knowledge.
have to pull scott up on one thing though, london is the worst place in the world to drink, without a shadow of a doubt. overpriced, everything shuts early, full of lairy twats who can't handle their liquor, really really disgraceful considering the status of the city and that, how big it is and how cosmopolitan and sophisticated it pretends to be.
i've never found a good place to drink post-11pm in london. if you know anywhere, share your knowledge.
(if its full of posers i'm not going, we're thinking low-key, good selction of spirits, proper brandy and proper rum, reasonable prices, be good if it was fairly dark with nice music not played too loud, no pricks, pretty girls... who knows anywhere like that?)
