    Bars in CWB

    Anyone know any good bars in CWB since Inn Side Out is closing and Dickens is no longer..
    What are the options out there.

    There are a fair few bars on Yiu Wa Street behind times square although i find them incredibly expensive. You can also try Brecht's Circle opposite Slices Pizzeria. I havent tried it yet but those i know who have say it's quite an experience due to the mixed crowd you find in there.

    P.S. Dickens still exists doesn't it?

    There is The Royal in Cannon Street at the back of SOGO which is OK, I just don't like being forced to pay for peanuts and pay a 10% service charge on a beer.

    There are one or two quite fun more local bars if you wander down Jaffe Road with decent price drinks.

    CD Bar looks like it could be good on Canal Road West/Jaffe. I've walked past it a few times.

    Also there are a load of Dart's bars in CWB, some of which i and others play in frequently.

    Ive been in there once, it looks like a pub from the outside but i found it to be much more like a set lunch venue from the inside. Can't really say what it's like of an evening though.

    There is also the Jockey in Happy Valley if you don't mind travelling a bit further.

    Inexpensive booze and a fairly lively atmosphere. Depending on the night, there could be a large group of westerners or mostly locals. Its a mixed crowd.

    If you are going to venture that far, you can also try 2 doors away : Happy Valley Bar&Grill
    Its part of the ElGrande group so you'll get the big selection of beers that you're used to from InnSideOut

    Anyone know where will Inn Side Out going to be moved?
    The Royal is ok but little bit too small to fit a small crowd sometimes
    It is also busy as well...
