Barcelona. Paris. Brussels. Stockholm. Amsterdam. Berlin… London! le cool London editor Mat Osman has been busy gallivanting around Europe with the group he helped found early in the 90s, Suede. Read Mat’s account of the adventures back on the tour bus published in the Independent this week. ‘Less booze and more Deep Heat,’ he observes of the dressing room in Barcelona; but goes on to describe a wild and sweaty performance by band and audience, to the extent that the sound man couldn’t hear the drums over the crowd’s whistling.

Let’s face it, on a Friday night in London, any place with a tap is a party with a queue to get in, but if you are looking for something more original than a Wetherspoons and more class than a neighborhood boozer, our own Chloe le cool was featured in vTravelled magazine naming the Top Ten Specialist Drinking Venues in London.
