Recommended Posts

Nearby Greetings and Somerfields, the old arcade is applying to be a late night bar. Application is to stay open until 12:30am Sunday to Thursday then 2am Friday and Saturday.


Does anyone know anything about Boho Bar or the applicant, Shenol Mentesh Ibrahim? What sort of place are we going to be getting? Spit and sawdust or Chasers? Manhattan or Croydon?

A gentleman with the same first name and surname appears to run and/or be a director of the company that runs/ran the Scene Bar on the OKR.


Edited: to say that it looks like Scene may have shut down now and have been replaced by the fantastically named Xeus nightclub?

OMG I went to Adventure bar on Saturday - I had to leave after one. MOR Rock music (Bon Jovi and Elton John* to name 2 artists) played at such a volume conversation was impossible and lots of over-excited 20 somethings. Nice Margherita but not as strong as the one I then had in Licorish.


sorry - off topic. New bar eh? Just what we need\!!




* I do like some EJ but not what Adventure bar was playing

BoHo really does sound like a strip club. I really hope not - there are enough in the city. It would fail anyway. Personally, I'd love to see an Eclipse type place on LL (it works well in Wimbledon). We could do with something a bit more upbeat and open till late.

Mr MW74 and I saw a 50's style diner/pole dancing club in Brighton last weekend. The 'dancer' was dressed in a 50's style waitress outfit. Mr MW74 wanted to go in thinking it was a normal dinner. I had to point out the rather large pole in the window to him.


Maybe we could have one of those instead?

I do like the breeders, even if their first major successes were ushered in by the demise of the pixies. Although it was inevitable that Kim Deal would find an alternative and equally successful outlet for her talents as they were often bullishly sidelined by black Francis.

I was tempted to go along the Breeders pop group line myself, Brendan, and well done for going there, and that would be usually my tack.

But, I think that Josh's post was worthy of a mention for the quality of it's special air of ill-thought silliness.

Where is breeding taking place in LL bar? Am I missing something!?


I noticed a lot of (sound) insulation piled up in the venue last night, so I'm guessing it's going in the bar/club direction, but that's a pretty loose guess.


Apparently, Adventure Bar is not charging for entry on NYE and will have a last man standing policy!

    • If 85% of car drivers are regularly breaking the law and think they are above it - then it suggests they aren’t being caught and fined doesn’t it? 
    • But we are talking about the cyclists are we not? Did you also notice the very same pedestrian walks across the pedestrian crossing and what happens...the cyclist cycling up the wrong way of the cycle lane doesn't stop at the pedestrian crossing....   Perhaps you would like to try and find fault with the pedestrians in the other video....or are you refusing to watch that one too...time to take the blinkers off perhaps... Well if they get caught speeding they get fined...you can kill someone when youre riding a bike and claim the speed limit doesn't count for you and you can't be charged with causing death by dangerous cycling. Is that perfectly acceptable in your world?   As I have said for a long time the daily repeated examples of.bad cycling everyone can see must be down to arrogance or ignorance...which one is it? Police are starting to have to more aggressively police cycling not because they want to but because they have to..why..because cyclist behaviour is getting worse.
    • It starts with pedestrian walking down the middle of a cycle lane. So what do you think should happen to the 90% odd car drivers that break the law and think they are above it?
