When did this happen?
The past few days, I’ve been at a couple of gigs: firstly Black Lips at Heaven, last night Torche at the Underworld. Heaven – to be found just off Villiers Street, ‘tween Charing Cross and Embankment stations – is a nightclub first and gig venue second, so prices were expectedly high. But as much as £4.40 for a beer? Surely not.
But this was no one-off: at the Underworld, Camden, last night, two (different) beers both cost £4 or over. When did we reach the £4 pint? (Or less, size-wise: one of two was just under a pint, in bottle form.) And why was I not informed before being stung in the wallet this week?
Shocking. But the gigs were great. Check out a clip of the end of Black
