    needed to relax, never did the bath but had a laugh at the ones that did
  5. The "Dodgy Oppos" (Good Companions), The "Two Sticks" (Two Trees), The Spanish Bar, all Plymouth.
    Both Berliners mentioned by Macattack. Remember a leaving do in Smuts Bks - the guy was presented with a huge fcuk off poster of him in the bath with two ahem young ladies at Mon Cheri's...he didn't know (till later) that we'd sent a copy to his mother......
    Dick's Bar, Malta GC.
    In Sara J - CJ 10 and The Bulldog (Butmir), The Harp, The MAC Bar (Mine Action Centre) downtown. Tough tour that one.
    Mostar - The Fireman's Pub.
    China Fleet Club, HK (looong time ago).
    RE Bar in MGrad Bus thingy.
    Van Damms (Chav Central, Chatham 70's/80s) - bloody awful strippers and sh1te beer really, but made sports afternoons fly by.
  6. "the Church" Kings Cross, many a beer scooter has needed to take me home from there on a Sunday evening after going on to Backpackers, i cant manage to negociate the tube sober but somehow i manage it whilst blind drunk. :D
  7. The Belgie Bar, Rheindahlen.

    Then on to the PMC, the Marley and winding up in Pops and Eddies or the Gravel Pit.
  8. Normal Friday/Saturday evening in times past always seemed to follow the same pattern after a couple of warmers in the Naafi it was off to the Church in Krefeld, (now called the Tree) Taxi to the Onion on to the Comeback Steakhouse (upstairs) and then wake up some where in the Altstadt in Duesseldorf or halfway up the street of a thousand pubs in Moenchengladbach.

    Then try to find a way back home again..... happy days indeed (if somewhat blurry :) )
