“I never went, but every single time I’ve spoken to someone they’ve said it was really good, but it’s full of people off their faces. It’s one of the only places I haven’t been to yet, and if it’s anything like G Bar it should be good.”

“No I didn’t like it before, I didn’t go to it. It’s not my sort of music.”
