Karaoke Night Wednesday 19/11,
The City is London's financial district, home to big banks and bigger end-of-year bonuses. So it is unsurprising that the bars here cater to the suits and their expense accounts. Head further east and everything changes. East London was and still is, in the main, home to a thriving immigrant community as well as numerous artistic types. The drinking establishments here are quirkier, edgier and more eclectically urban in atmosphere.
For instance Rebecca's Karaoke Night is well set within the time and vibe though not as posh as Gentlemen are not allowed in with their Hats and cane. - what a shame. What an experience i guess in future they may ask one to take off their Trouser.Sort and be rated till then
