The Clewes(sp?)Manchester,rough bloody place that were,walked in and a old doll of about seventy five asked me if I wanted a short time,one naturally assumed she were touting for some other bird but no she was the Main event so one made one's excuses and left as the Vice Squad always claimed.
Rough bloody place Manchester docks were then.

!970 Mathaeser Bier Stadt, Munich. A German lady came up to me. "I had American boyfriend. He leave me so I cut my wrists." She then showed me the scars. No I didn't buy her a beer and she left. By the way Mathaeser is now closed for good.

RJM.......You forgot the"Cage" bar at Lims Rapid Creek, The Old Vic on Smith Street, The Berrimah and the Humpty Doo, especially after pension day.

Those were the days.

1987 Wide eyed and very innocent 20 year old. Travelling UK to Australia. Plane went tech and ended up staying over in Bangkok for three nights. An Australian Rules Football team staying in the hotel took me under their wing. (Must have just been for amusement, or felt sorry for me)
I didn't have a penny to my name.
These top blokes bought me beer, bought me 'entertainment'.......eyes even wider open.
They were just great guys.
Couple of nights in, Bangkok underground bar........the inevitable bar bill with the decimal point way too far to the right arrived.
All hell kicked off when they refused to pay.
To my eyes it seemed like an army of Thai blokes wielding knives and shouting appeared from the walls.
One of the Aussies picked me up by the scruff of the neck and plonked me in the middle of the Aussies. All I could see was fists flying and shit going everywhere as they, en masse, worked their way to the exit stairs.
My eyes by now as wide as dinner plates.
We poured on to the street and the party continued.
We parted ways a day later. I still wish I could say thanks to them all..........a real awakening for me.

A friend and I went into a hooker bar in CPT in the rough area (bottom end of Long Street), very late one night. I was stone cold sober, he was as pissed as a newt and within seconds this really rough goffle chick was all over him, tongue down his throat and hand into his back pocket. I grabbed his wallet before she got to it, took out the hundred rand or so that I knew he'd need to pay for her 'services', shoved it back into his pocket, and kept the wallet and its contents. He ended up taking her home (I was driving).

He rang me in the morning, a bit vague about what had happened the night before but said when he woke up, she'd gone, she'd scaled his radio, half his toiletries, his wallet, and a few other odds and sods. I went round to cook him breakfast and let him sweat a bit over the wallet. Later on I told him and gave him back the wallet along with a warning about that type of place.

He didn't learn. He went back a few days later, picked up another hooker, took her home but as he sobered up decided not to do the deed and threw her out. A couple of days later he came home and found a threatening note in his letter box saying : "It's easy to get into the Eagle's Nest but not so easy to get out. Watch your back. We're after you."

Went in with a few mates and silence was immediate, guy shoved a tin under our noses with "IRA" emblazoned on the front, the first and only time I contributed to a terrorist cause.

Plough and Stars in Cambridge was like that. No, no, on Massachusets Avenue in the other Cambridge. The Guiness was excellent though, and the G&T was served in pint glasses -- British pints not American. But I was careful to speak only to the barman and in a low voice.

In the Republic of Ireland I was greeted with nothing but friendship in any bar. Funny that.

a remnant from 1960's Australia was the 'Quarter Deck' bar...interesting because a sign on the door still remained that said 'Mixed Drinking'.
They'll have none of that nonsense in Alice Springs, where segregation is still the norm!

Red Curtained place north of Milan. Had a few drinks and was warned off by one of the Ladies who suggested I was going to be in a lot of trouble if I did not pay the Bill as presented. Asked how much trouble that might be to be told...."they might kill you.".

A couple of them won't sez I.

Then "they" showed up.

I paid the full Tariff and left a Tip.

Pub in Port Laoise in the Irish Republic, this town has the prison where the captured IRA members were held during the troubles. Republican sympathies ran strong, this was shown by the pro IRA posters on the wall in the bar.

I got some very unfriendly looks as soon as I open my mouth, only the fact that I was with a relative who was well known locally saved me.

Oh yes! Remember 'visiting' said places once or twice back in late '79 or early '80, purely as an observer though.

Two spring to mind, all for different reasons.

Binbrook, filling yet another leaking Lightning with PRC which has to cure. Our leader, who knew every dive there was, invariably took us to one as clearly there was no work to do and thus the RAF couldn't really object. Sound logic here....the dive in question was in Grimsby docks and the clientele, "eclectic". Seated, and watching the escape route to the door. one oldish patron comes across and asks if we would like a game of darts, our leader volunteers moi, who cannot hit a dartboard from 1 foot away...said contestant then adds "for a few " after the offer was accepted.

The Devil looks after his own however, and one's natural talent, panache and every tightening sphincter ensured one won all three games. "not well received or as intended" as they say by the locals....the mutterings were increasing to hostile level....we never collected the money, but the exit would have impressed a Mr Bolt.

Broadhaven ( Pembrokeshire for overseas readers ) and a rather nice pub......from the outside that is. On the wall, a list of "useful telephone numbers", starting with the RAF Club, and thereafter others of a similar ilk. The landlord, as obnoxious and repugnant as the clientele, pointedly asked after grudgingly serving us, if "this will be the only pint you want?"....much childlike sniggering and guffawing from the clientele at this point, bit like one or two on the Mil thread at times who remain nostalgic for the past. So we left and found a much more civilised pub..which was not difficult.

I am quiet amused however, to read of the many who have displayed their insecurities and lack of cosmopolitan awareness by their references to gay bars. Whilst I am not, I have friends who are...never a problem therefore.

" he came home and found a threatening note in his letter box saying : "It's easy to get into the Eagle's Nest but not so easy to get out. Watch your back. We're after you."

This does beg the question, as to which came first...the event above which provided the "inspiration" for the last episode of " The Mousetrap", as scripted by yourself and about yourself, with a token guest appearance of a scammer, or, did the last episode provide the inspiration for the ending above ?....always difficult to tell...... given the source of both.

Good thread,

Kuah Langkawi, Senior Management has made me go to see the famous eagle in Kuah and the duty free shops naturally.
While wandering round the eagle she announces she needs a toilet moderately urgently.
Not a problem says the man of the world we'll just go for a beer, all bars have toilets.
We settle outside a bar and surly youth appears.
Two beers please and do you have a toilet I say motioning to SM.
No beer, no toilet, no women says youth, this Muslim bar.
His two larger assistants appear, time to go thinks I.
We found somewhere with a toilet soon after.

Back in the 70's I found myself in a very dark bar (just outside Benidorm) with a small stage. A young lady (with not much clothes on) walked on stage accompanied by a donkey. Before the act started my taxi arrived so I have no insight as to the performance.

I can only presume, Spain being a very religious country the lady was going to perform some type of nativity scene from the Bible.

Must have been the same nativity play as in certain bars in La Linea/Algerciras.
