4th of July Drinks @ Ace Cafe & Coffin Dodgers Disco @ The Phoenix

Myself with hot but very grumpy old biddy! ;)


You will be turned away on the door at The Phoenix if you are under 28.

Meet for 7pm. Going to have some drinks at Ace Cafe and will hop on the Bakerloo line at Stonebridge Park  to Oxford Circus for Coffin Dodgers disco at The Phoenix . Will get to The Phoenix pub for 11pm for a drink and then will head downstairs for Coffin Dodgers disco.  Will send out my number before 5pm on the day.

I have lived in West London all my life and have never been to Ace Cafe before. So for 4th July though it would be a good day as any to check this place out! I wouldn't want to go into this place on my own being the Fred Perry wearing and having neat hair cut R&B dancing kind of kid that I am. So thought it would be nice to have some other people with me in case we get into any trouble with them rockers! (only joking I 'm sure the place is fine) :) I do like a a bit of Eddie Cochran and Sun Records, so am keen to try this place out.

Ace Cafe is is all about the cars, motorcycles and rock n roll! It opened as a 24 hour cafe in 1938 to accommodate traffic on the North Circular Road. They put on a lot of events such as showcasing custom cars and bikes and rockabilly nights. A lot of history here folks!

Nope I will not put grease in my hair.

Take the skinny Mod to the danger zone! ;)

Might be cheeky and ask for some Louie Louie to set the cats amongst the pigeons.

    However the 3 way grind off to Push It by Salt n Pepa between Shak, another bloke & Vera (involving nsfw zimmer frame action) had to be seen to be believed! I only hope they caught some of that bad boy on camera ...

    Last time I was at Coffin Dodgers Disco cute Vera asked me out on a date to Southend. What with old age and wanting to get back home for the snooker we didn't exchange phone numbers. My memory isn't what it used to be so can someone please remind me to get Vera's phone number this time. ;) I know Ace Cafe is a bit out the way for some people to get to so if anyone didn't fancy the trip up to Stonebridge I can meet you at The Phoenix for 11pm for a drink and then you can help me get downstairs with my zimmer frame to Coffin Dodgers! :)
