The BoogalooThe Boogaloo has succeeded in breaking the all pervasive contemporary pub blueprint, fashioning a popular alternative with a great atmosphere - and not an inch of light pine to be seen! The pub - presided over by Irish landlord Gerry O'Boyle of Filthy McNasty's infamy - looks aged and comfortable with an inviting slightly living-roomy feel about it. Bar staff peer out from behind the rickety wooden bar over a mishmash of sofas, chandeliers and convenient pint-resting shelves. The centrepiece of the pub is its magnificent jukebox, home to over a hundred albums. The Boogaloo has a strict policy of only stocking the machine with great albums over ten years old (to make fully sure they stand the test of time). It's terrific to see the punters picking out their own soundtrack to the evening, rather than a set by yet another DJ Nobody. If you need a little guidance on what to put on, there's always the celebrity choice list, nominated by a different musical luminary each month. Shane McGowan, Bobby Gillespie and Badly Drawn Boy have all selected playlists in the past. In the evenings live bands and DJs take over, with different nights featuring jazz, rockabilly, country and folk, and punk. The best time for celebrity-spotting is their eye-wateringly difficult music quiz, which attracts a huge crowd of geeky indie band-members.
