This place is so big, and they don't seem to mind if you take a dining room table even if you're only having drinks. Or at least nobody stopped us. They have a good selection of beers, including Blue Moon (though I didn't have that, since I'll be back in the US soon enough), and lots of different rooms with different levels of crowdedness. Seems like an early-thirties crowd, perhaps. There's... more

This place is huge. Not large, not "wow, what a spacious spot" but huge. Being as it did used to be an actual bowling club it has rooms off of rooms off of rooms and a sunny garden to boot!

This place is the bee's absolute knees. Well truthfully it's the BBC, but let's not quibble.

Granted the decor is decades out of date, and there's no ventilation upstairs to the point where we were gasping for air, stripped down to our vests. There were loads of us, though.

Needless to say, all of this is inconsequential, because the place is so unique. I don't know anywhere else like it,... more
