Joiners Arms (CLOSED)
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Some of the time, the Joiners Arms is a friendly gay local with regular entertainment and happy hours. On the weekends, however, it pulls a clubby crowd. At times, the atmosphere can get a bit frenetic – in fact, after hours on Saturday night it feels more club than pub, with blaring house beats, wall-to-wall bodies and a hedonistic air. And there’s often a queue for the grotty toilets. Though some of the art school crowd from the George & Dragon end up here, they’re mixed in with muscle marys, hardcore scenesters and rough boys – the latter are a fixture around the pool table. The vibe is generally friendly, but a few unsavoury characters can spoil the mood.
