Quite close to downtown. I was thinking parts of Richmond (Maybe Mollys, Barneys, Frog, Brass Door, 181 for those inclined, Kools and all that) and King. The usual suspects with more pubs than bars I guess. Mexis et al. patios basically for restaurants. Ideally places that are walking distance for me

Suggestions are welcome...

I haven't been in downtown London for years - how close are any of those to the VIA station/hotels etc? People from out of town are going to need to be able to stumble back to their hotels after all (Or at least be a reasonable cab ride away *g*)

The VIA is not really close to Richmond row (not walking distance anyway at 2 am) but the cab shouldn't be more than like $6-8 so it's not exactly expensive.

Molly's is my favourite. The Frog is good when there are no undergrads (and I love their 2nd floor patio). TJs also has a nice upstairs patio. Barneys is nice outside in the summer. I really like the Taphouse if you're into a club/lounge/dancing mood rather than a pub. So long as we avoid Ceeps, Salt Lounge, the Phoenix we are okay. Those are totally sketchy and gross.

The Honest Lawyer has yard beer which may appeal to some, I suppose...

Absolutely - they were not even in the running - neither was Jacks, or Old Chicougars


Yeah - The Yard at the lawyer is pretty fun haven't been there in a while though.

VIA was the first landmark I thought of as it's all I see of London anymore while heading to Chatham to visit the 'rents

"Yard beer"?

So is Richmond Row getting towards Western or am I thinking of the wrong part of town?

That could be dangerous to someone who likes beer (I don't, so I'm safe )

Are you thinking pub crawl?
