What was your favourite Drinking area in the world


War Hero
Looking at the post about sh!tt!ng, bought back fond memories of the Gut in Malta.
Jack had many favourite spots around the globe where he would gather with colleagues to enjoy a friendly drink or ten.
We had:
Bugis street in Singapore
Wanchai in Hong Kong
The Gut in Malta
Union street in Guz
Patpong in Bangkok
Killidini Rd in Mombasa
Steamer point in Aden (back on board by 1800)

Where was your favourite, and which one was your downfall?

The nearest Bar!

The Lone Barn near Burseldon was a firm favourite,as was the Market House Tavern in Gosport.

... and do any of those still exist? My cynical mind says, probably not.
Union st Plymouth, Bugis street singapore (much cleaned up) and Patpong 1&2 still going strong.


After a year as a singley in Gib in the very early 80's I fondly remember major drinking sessions in wonderful establishments such as The Barrel House, Lottie's Beer Keller, Cannon Bar, Donkey's Flip Flop, Mad Bish, Boxer Bar, Bat and Ball, Oliver Twist, Captain's Table, Mason's Arms, Duke O'Boots, Star Bar, Anchor, Chimney Corner, Buccaneers .... oh sod it - every bar in Gib :D
