Sebastian, I dont know where you have been drinking, but it was obviously in the wrong places. I have always found bar prices to be entirely reasonable and in fact cheaper than many establishments in my home town in North West England let alone London. There are only two bars that I avoid in LG these days - both in close proximity to each other in the centre of the village. It is true that these places tend to attract the younger element who are used to paying club type prices and dont seem to mind. Thats my feeling, anyway.
