I recently moved back into the West End after working In The City (Cue Simsy, ba da ba da ba dabadabaa In The City there's a thousand things I wanna say to you...) and am wondering if anyone knows of any bars or boozers where you can hear soul music (or that has a good jukebox) midweek.

Years ago we had Reggie Reggie's Soul Cafe which was excellent, but always completely empty.

Anyone know of anywhere to go for a drink and avoid the usual House or Funk nonsense in the background?

(Obvious Soul Nights excepted of course)

Cheers me old cockernee cockles.

Cheers Shane

I knew someone would come up with that. I should have said "And I know about Bradley's Spanish bar" still, you can't get in the place any more for Noo Meeja divs.*

Spot on though. Good jukebox.

Jim Reeves, Dusty Springfield, Johnny Cash. Quality

*I exclude myself from that of course

Push Bar, Dean Street - last wednesday of the month. Absolute sh*thole, but Mike, Simon White, Neal Rushton and quite often myself play a full spectrum of soul music.

Personally, I wouldn't sit on the toilet seat tho....the drinks are cheap tho' especially for the West End !

Don't they want a fiver to get in? As it is a bit of a dive that's cheeky imo.

Ah yes Geoff but you're paying for the atmosphere, the music, the company, the banter and the ambiance...not to have a shit.

Plus I don't think anyones ever actually been charged anyway. whistling.gif

Ask Tim, the assistant manager, to put on some of the cd's we made for him (and which he says go down brilliantly !). They're all tracks played at our club. Ad-Lib Soul/R&B Club, Lincoln.

Having been to Ad-Lib earlier this year Andy I can say that those CDs will be right up your street whistling.gif
