So, my friend John says, he says, there’s a night at a bar in Kings Cross where the theme is that they show slides from other people’s family holidays. Bad holiday snaps.
It’s an amusing idea, and an amusing bar, and I was surprised to find it right downstairs in the middle of the Kings Cross strip.
Also, there is some excellent neon in the loos, but for some reason, the photo didn’t transfer to this blog post and now I’m overseas and can’t access it. I’ll try to include it later.
The thing is that the drink prices are a few dollars too high, for everything, from cocktails to wine and beer so I wonder how long the place will last.
And the music, purposely cool, was 50s rock and roll sung in other languages, Spanish and then Japanese. I knew I was supposed to find it groovy but found it really annoying and we didn’t stay for a second drink.
But I’d still give it another try, particularly to drag a visitor from out of town to a bar that’s actually on the famous Kings Cross strip. Hopefully, they’ll still be showing the same slides, but the music will be better.
