Whoever said it was good deserves a beating with life changing injuries.

The weird thing about The Venue was that the carpet on the floor was always wet.

Everywhere at all times. 

Wherever you tried to sit, you sat down with a squelch. 

Not sure if it was piss, blood, beer, or puke. 

Probably a soup of all those things.

Used to work behind the bar in one of the restaurants at the beach when I was a student, so was a regular at Amadeus as we got free entry and cheap drinks.

Had some cracking nights there, but it was a bit of a shithole. 

Only went after a shift to get pished and try to get a ride then get the bus back into town.

Harbour pub crawl used to be brilliant - about a dozen pubs.  Lucky if there's 3 or 4 left.

Crows Nest, Fittie Bar, Peep Peeps, St Clements bar, Cutters Wharf, Crown & Anchor, Moorings, Regent Bar, Schooner, Criterion.  I've no doubt missed a few

Mates old man owned the Cra's nest , when it opened it was really smart . Big squad of us used to go there for pre and post match pints. Dod would run a mini bus for us back and forth , great times

Yeah it was. People still went to Amadeus and then when Priory opened that took away a huge amount of punters. 

Poo Na Na also took away a fair bit of trade as did Eskobar (now that was a fucking great place!)

I think the opening of Espionage was the final nail in the coffin for Amadeus.
