I’m sick of hearing the phrase ‘since 24 hour drinking was introduced’. What 24 hour drinking? I do not know a single pub in cental London that is open for business around the clock. There’s six or seven places I go to a lot in the capital, and only one of them continues serving past 11pm. The ones that do stay open an extra hour tend to have signs outside them saying ‘please leave quietly – this is a residential area’. Sorry mate, the west end of London is NOT a residential area, it is the centre of one of the largest cities in the world. If you don’t like hustle and bustle, either buy some earplugs or fuck off to Somerset.
