SquareMeal Review of Retro Bar

Lurking down a nondescript alleyway, is this alternative bolthole being deliberately hidden from mainstream eyes? The Retro will resonate with those who remember a time when gay bars were less full-on than some of today’s pumped-up meat racks. Step inside & it could be any year between Frankie Howerd’s Up Pompeii & Frankie Goes to Hollywood – hence cheesy Top of the Pops oldies mixed with ‘things we podium-danced to in Sitges circa 1992’. Regular Eurovision-themed nights & pub quizzes (‘name all the Nolan Sisters!’) are fun, friendly & usually accompanied by more camp asides than Graham Norton. To drink, order bargain-basement Stella & cider – sometimes in the same glass – with a packet of crisps on the side.
