London – the City that never sleeps – yeh right!

Last Wednesday I was in London with Rob and Gem on a Pareto Law training course. In the evening I went out in Fulham for a drink or two. Apparently ‘Life Begins at Fulham Broadway‘, its a lie I tell you!!

We started out in Zinc, that abruptly shut at 11pm, wondering around revealed every other bar was shut, eventually we found Chateau 6.

Chateau 6 is a really nice chilled out bar, we got a bottle of wine in, and then at midnight all the lights came on and the bouncers wanted us out!

All that remained open was a dicey pub/club thingy called Fiesta Havana, which taxed us £3 each to get in and was just rubbish and only open until 2am anyway!

Dejected I did the right thing and thought lets have a kebab, could I get a Kebab?! Nope all 5million kebab houses and take aways on North End road were shut, I mean what is that all about.

Lets take this in contrast with last night, when we were out in sunny Coventry, spoilt for choice with many bars and clubs open until the early hours of the morning, and as for takeaways, do they ever shut in Coventry?!

So to sum up, in my opinion Coventry is better for late night drinking than London, unless of course you want to go to the West End and get ripped off!!
