Noticed the pikeys earlier sitting outside the Sugar Lounge. Could hear them from a good distance away. Never ends well tbf, I recognise them from another pub I drank in a few years ago.
Reason I logged on just now was to check on developments as I knew it wouldn't go unnoticed here
This group of people were already drunk in WLM at 5pm. I'm surprised they could stand up by the time they got to SL.
Well they are the type to drink till they pass out or have a ruck
Last time I saw the same group a few houses on the same road as the pub had their front garden walls sledge hammered
Aaah, summer has come and here we are on the 'living on a busy (A) road in London is too noisy' debate again.
Islington is actually very good about noise pollution as discussed on a previous thread.
If you call tham to complain they will come to your house/flat and measure the noise levels in your bedroom. Not in your drawing room or outside. If they are above the legal limits they will deal with it. They will not police noise outside on a public road, why would they? If there were fights and antisocial behaviour you could call the police.
Now, I'm not a barfly and am not a massive drinker but the Sugar Lounge is actually nice - you should try it. The food is lovely, the cocktails are great and the lady that runs it is very sweet.
They also host SG's literary events in their beautiful back room and I believe that there may be an exciting new event in the wings too. Ask Miscara.
When you are in there it really isn't all that noisy although I appreciate that if you live directly above a bar or pub you might be somewhat disturbed. I'd say that The Stapleton on a week night is noisier. Give it a try on a weekday with some pals, you are missing out on one of SG's nicer venues.
I concur with miss annie. Can't comment on the noise issue, but early evening during the week it's a comfortable venue, food was good and owner very friendly.
The White Lion has been ruined due to complaints from the 'neighbours'. No more sitting outside, no more sitting in the window seats.
Tell you what, probably just best to board up and close down the whole of SGR.
I wear earplugs too, they're really no bother.
Yes according to the Duty Manager (French Girl)
My money is on kreuzkav
But he drinks in there quite often! Would be a bit silly of him to complain...
seems to be getting rebuilt inside
Earplugwise, I would recommend the silicone. Beats the foam ones, but I've never tried the wax ones.
Anyone know what's happening at K1? They've got architects in (sign outside), wonder what they're doing?
Also any word on the new place where the toaster cafe used to be?
Can someone remind me what the toaster art thing is all about? A couple of guys were spraying it on the Parkland Walk at the weekend, and it looked like a very professional job.
Its a front
