This pub was the greatest place I've ever been to.
It played the best music in Birmingham and had the livelest crowd of regulars I've ever met. Sometimes I just used to forget about going up town all together! Grab an early night get up first thing and land there fresh on a Saturday morning. The bouncers were sound, the place was rocking from 7 till 1 on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
I'll never forget the west end bar, or the day it got shut down. We ended up havin to go the cinema in town and we were all off our heads!! ha ha. Well, all I can do is hope that one day it will re-open but I doubt it considering what happened.
The music lives on though and the music that started there is now played by hundreds all over Birmingham and the UK. But it started there.... and at Genesis, but that's gone as well, may they both rest in peace.
