087. Rembrandt, Sackville Street

Rembrandt, Sackville Street. (c) Gene Hunt at flickr.
For the Rembrandt on the corner of Sackville Street and Canal Street, read Paddy's Goose, but gayer. Even stranger sights, even more blokes dressed as women with facial hair. Bouncers don't like you wandering outside with glasses either, which we kept doing to annoy them (a few halves had been taken by this point). As you'd expect, no real ale despite being an old J W Lees house (see here and here) - previously known as the Ogdens Arms in the 1800s [1] - and number four out of the way. The Village is as popular as ever although it seems like out-of-towners, old queens, and chavs are the order of the day, as the clued-up members of the community that the area once catered for have surely moved on from this theme park.
