Advantages: All within staggering distance
Disadvantages: Alcohol is bad for you
The night life is definateley worth going to Workington for. There is a great circuit around town which enables you to walk out of one pub, stagger slightly and fall in to the next. It all starts at Wetherspoons on Oxford street at around 7PM where stomachs are lined and cheap beer is drunk. The waltz to the next pub is the furthest you will go in one stint all night but it gives you a chance to burn off the cheesey chips that you have just consumed. Turn right as you go out of the door and head east, keep walking but be weary of the taxis wanting to kill you at the round about and keep going toward the traffic lights. On your right you will see Level 2, this is a fun pub with dace floor and is usually quite packed. As you leave turn right in the same direction as before and continue toward the traffic lights, on the opposite side of the road ( Washington street) is The Well, enter throught the front door but walk straight on to the top bar if you are below 30, stay in situ if not. Once ready for a move, exit via the side door, stumble slightly and you will find yourself entering Yankees bar through their side door. Once you have danced a bit and upset everyone, leave via the main door in the bottom bar and turn immediateley left, 20m stagger and then youre at Chasers, this ones simple, one door in and one door out, once out turn left again and youre at Xscape, again, as simple as the last out and left again, in approx 15m you will stumble upon a side street, turn left and go through the door on your left, youre now in Circuit. Chill for a while in here and get you breath, congratulations!!!! youre quater of the way round!!!! Head out of here via the Nook street door and turn left again, head straight forward 20m on to King street and turn right, a further 20m is the Red House, mostly oldies and a few hardened rugby players on steroids, another 15m and there is the Grapes, a deceiving little pub. enter and please buy your drink in here, be forwarned!!! As you head toward the toilet you will realise that things have gone different without leaving the pub, this is not the drink taking effect but infact a pact little fun bar area called the Vine Bar, on Thursdays itll have cowgirls on the bar and a great bloody bull in the centre which you will, by this time, be convinced that you have what it takes to stay on forever, the bruises in the morning will remind you. Once leaving here by the main exit you will find yourself in an alley way, turn right and in 10m you will be back on to King street, tun left and in 20m there will be three roads in front, go immediately right and then left down a cobbled street, in 20m you will have a desician to make, hmmm, left or right? on your right is Dukes, and on your left is some other bounce place. Cant remember the name but my mates and I nicknamed it Stringfellows because the bloke behind the bar is his double. Carrying on down this road will lead you to some more traffic lights and on the other side of the road is the Curwen, graet little pub with a whacky DJ bloke who sounds like Joe Pascalle, weird little creature. after here its big desicion time, Fusion is opposite and right on Ladies walk, overated but great but great for the young ones, The Royal oak is over the road and straight ahaed toward the town center, a bit dingy but ok, or back to Chasers untill 2am which is left and back down Washington Street. All are approx 100m. If youve had enough by this time then the Taxis are lining the road on route to Chasers.
Hope this was a little more helpfull, enjoy.
