  • The Bottle Called — Anthony Griffin Photography
    more bars widening the choice for customers it has never been more apparent to me how fairly the Thomas House price their stock To counter any bias argument as I write about my local consider why it is my local in a city awash with some great bars On a personal level the Thomas House gave me the opportunity to DJ for over a year some time ago I completed multiple projects there when I was in college as well as personal past and current photography projects I have made a mountain of friends through the bar Their music both live and DJ is in line with my own taste and has allowed me to hear some great domestic and international live acts When I can I get my haircut in there by the weekly resident Demon Barber So yes I am biased Who wouldn t be But if I just walked in off the street unbiased yes I would have to notice the prices as well as everything else The bar is an independent bar who can t offset costs against their other premises there aren t any and it doesn t heap surcharges onto the customer blaming rates
