After winning free entry and a round of 6 drinks, we were all quite excited about going dancing at L&L. However, this anticipation was instantly deflated by the obnoxious woman on the door, who clearly has delusions of grandeur and thinks that she runs a top Mayfair nightclub!! She purposely maintains a queue outside to make it look like the club inside is over-crowded, which it most certainly is not - even on a Saturday night!! Despite our offer, we were still made to pay £10 on the door.
Inside, the music is great, atmosphere would be great if it were crowded but again, the service was awful. Barmen and women looked bored and completely uninspired - drinks reflected that and were truly unpalatable, so much so that we just put them to one side.
Upon leaving, the minion on the door, was again in form, true to herself, informing us that we could not for one minute stand on the front porch (because of the crowds??!!) whilst it was pouring down and we were simply opening up our umbrellas and searching for where the nearest minicab office was.
I love other clubs in this family of venues - the Paradise is a NW institution and befitting and worthy of all and any praise. The place has real character and ambience and I would be happy to spend my money there. Love and Liquor has the potential to be similar but just massively let down by the staff! Firing the woman at the door would be a great start!
