The Doric Arch Pub: Fancy a quick drink near Euston Station
This pub is located just outside Euston Station. Like all London pubs it is not cheap for its drinks, but the staff were quite pleasant and the pub was interesting inside as it was decorated with old railway signs and interesting railway memorabilia. It serves food and teas and coffees, too. We did not eat here just stopped by or drinks. Handy and interesting decor.
The Griffin Bar, 266 Bath Street, Glasgow: Fun spot for a visit
The Griffin Bar is one of the oldest pubs in Glasgow. It is located at 266 Bath Street very close to the King's Theatre so is popular with theatre goers. As well as offering a full range of drinks it provides typical pub food, too. The bar has a quirky side with dishes on the menu such as Glasgow salad i.e. a bowl of chips. A noticeboard with odd sayings and jokes and a sign on the front advertising its ghost. Apparently when some photos were taken of the inside of the pub a ghostly hand could be seen on one of them. Worth a visit, though it gets crowded at times.Related to:

Decon Brodies: Wall-to-Wall People
After our scary nightime tour of Edinburgh we ended up at Decon Brodies. The tavern is named after Edinburgh's William Brodie, whose baseness inspired Robert Louis Stevenson to write the famous classic - Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. It occupies a prime position at the top of the Mound in the High Street.
They serve great meals at lunchtime and during the evening, so we're were told, however, the place was so packed we gave up trying to get a drink and went back to our rooms.
Dress Code: No dress code that I could see.
Licensing laws: Time Gentlemen Please
In the UK, the legal drinking age is 18. There are a few qualifications to the law - if you're in a restaurant, for example, you can have a glass of wine or two with your meal if you're over the age of 14. If you're around 18, or older but look younger, it's best to have some form of recognisable ID with you. Lots of people here go drinking underage and never get ID'd (I didn't), but if you think you'll need it, take some ID. You won't get into trouble, but you won't be served.
Our licencing laws are much more liberal now than they were a few years ago, so the 11pm last orders ritual of buying a lot of beer and drinking it as quickly as possible in the 15 minutes before the pubs chuck you out is now a thing of the past, or at least happens an hour or so later.
Dress Code: Make sure you look old enough. No plastic beards though.

For those of us who enjoy more than loud techno music and over dressed-up people, ceilidhs are wonderful. Mostly found in Scotland, they are gatherings at the local pub or music club with live folk music to dance to and dance you will as it is impossible to sit still to the sound of fast violins and such. Besides, the locals will drag you up before you can blink too and teach you their steps. Don't worry if you belong to those of us who think you cannot dance. No one minds that sort of stuff at a ceilidh and it is socialising over all generations. The stuff magic evenings are made of :)
Dress Code: Whatever.Related to:

I'm not giving any names since places are 'here today, gone tomorrow' in this world but London and Manchester are excellent for all music life, clubbing etc. and places like Glasgow, Bristol, Leeds and Birmingham aren't far behind. Just grab copies of their local papers to see what's hot at the moment.Related to:
