Being a great aficionado of seedy bars I've been to many but some stand out: The 'afterbirth bar', a shack in Portugal where a bitch gave birth on the floor; a subterranean bar in Southwark where you pee'd straight into the sewer; a dreadful place in Manila probably a knocking shop; the secondhand clothes shop in Calais like a Millets with genièvre . The worst? Beer from an oil drum in a corrugated iron shebeen in a South African township.
You do require broad minded drinking mates in getting the best out of these joints. Otherwise they are so depressing.

    I remember the Southwark one...Molly's Dive Bar. The graffiti were legendary! :-)
