If you're after a mixture of underground sounds and a lounge space where you can actually hear what your mates are saying, you can't do much better than 'The Lex'. With an unashamedly American retro feel running through the decor (wooden floor, plump Chesterfield sofas and mismatched chairs, swagged red curtains) and the bar, which boasts a selection of over 40 whiskies and numerous US bottled specialty beers, it's a good place to both hear live music of an alternative variety (upstairs) and hang out (street level) until late. Further diversity is offered by regular club nights, a weekly pub quiz (conducted by Rough Trade), swing dance classes and a rock 'n' roll bingo night.

Really good range of gigs here. The pub quiz on a Monday is a toughie but a fun night out.
