Good idea for a thread
I think my ideal would have : Evening time
No live band on during the day(kills conversation worse than any piped music or tv)
A projector screen on down one end with sports etc on ,which at least provides a bit of excitement, conversation and non intrusive distraction.
Friendly genuine staff like in my local or the rare spots in town.
I like the dÃ©cor to be old fashioned, not a soulless sparkling super pub
The seating should be conducive to conversation and interaction with other punters.
No kids, which for me means infants to 25 year olds Nightclub time
In a nightclub I do like places with a mezzanine or balcony view like the George.
Something with a focal point as opposed to some messy labyrinthine warren
Music wise most of the time Id be happy with pop ,with a bit of Irish and maybe yeah the odd slow set should be back
Again , I know I sound like a old curmudgeon but no under 25s
