The FT Top 25 Pubs of the 00s No 1: The Cross Kings

FT5 comments • 283 views

Not really. Really not, with that mural downstairs. But nevertheless this is here as a placeholder until the real number one turns up for a reason. Namely that The Cross Kings, home of Poptimism for 18 months, is closing down tomorrow! Much fun was had there, dancing, drinking eating and it is a pity that it has closed : more details and bitterness here.

That mural though.

    That mural was an affront to humanity.

    I was never that fond of the previous version either (also on that page) and it’s immortalisation of the wild and chrazy guys who stayed there when it was apparently a backpacker’s.

    I never entirely understood the profusion of comics on the door down to the basement, but apparently -“there used to be a lot more downstairs.

    b-b-b-but won’t the universe come to a premature end if FT actually completes a countdown? *trembles*

    I would draw your attention to the Top 100 Films list, started and completed in exactly one year.
