  1. Where was 'The Van Gogh' bar/cafe?

    1. It's now called 'Churchill's'

    2. When I used to go there in the 70's the bands used to play downstairs. If you go into Churchill's at the entrance facing the sea, there would have been a doorway to the right and at the bottom of the stairs ... DJ in a booth, to the left, bar straight ahead and stage far left. Lots of great memories there, usually watching a band called 'Gizmo'!

    3. 1.36 I think you will find Juicy Lucy are playing there from now 5.30 this evening and since they were formed in 1969, things may have not changed as significantly as one would expect.

  2. Still there 10.30 the names have changed over the years,Isabella Baths, Paragon Hotel, Van Gogh Pub, Steptoe's ,Churchill Tavern, now. There may have been more but you get the gist.


Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
