SquareMeal Review of G-A-Y

Young, free and single? This one’s for you. Of course, it will help if you’re also G-A-Y, and not in the way your great-grandmother or Chris Moyles understands the term. Set over three banging floors at the heart of Boystown, one level is devoted to the birds while the lads have free range elsewhere. ‘Vertical drinking until horizontal’ (at very affordable prices) seems to be the mission statement, as the atmosphere gets frenetic and videos of Gaga, Britney and the latest pop queens du jour come fast and furious. Weekends excepted, bottles of San Miguel, Strongbow and Fosters Ice, plus glasses of house wine and spirits with mixers are practically given away at £1.60 a pop. Such discounts certainly help to finance sun-bed and hair-gel habits.
