Oh dear - well I can't help you there - all those meat market-ish places have been erased from my memory...but Greenwich is always a good spot for a bit of socialising - esp the pubs along the river on a friday or saturday night. Good luck with the article,
I'm not sure about a good place to pick up a date but one of the most "interesting" propositions I had recently (ooh, that makes it sounds like I get loads - good but untrue) was at Studio 33, Vauxhall (ah, technically SE11 now I come to think about it) where husband and I went for some afterhours dancing a few weeks ago.
Whilst jigging around in my uncoordinated manner, waiting for husband to return from bar, I was approached by a young lad with the immortal words "Do you want to go upstairs and sh*g?". I am of course censoring for the refined people of this forum.
I would guess the kid was pretty out of it - most people in the club are "chemically enhanced". Especially as husband and I significantly skew the average age of people in Studio 33 - we were probably the only people there older than the club name.
