Loafing it in Chester

Advantages: wicked chairs.
If you've ever been on a night out in Chester then you'll realise that it is very hard to get away from the 17 year old "it girls" in their denim skirts and glittery tops, and their loyal toff male followers.
Loaf is where the old "Bar Coast" used to be, which used to be over 21s, which meant that it was (near enough) a safe haven from those 17 year old rich bitches...even though I'm not 21 yet....but still....thats not the point. However Bar Coast has now been replaced with Loaf. Loaf is a chain of bars, the nearest one to chester is in MAnchester under the arches. Loaf is a nice enough place, its very suave and has really comfy couches upstairs which is wicked, and the decor seems really retro and cool, and is generally a wicked place but there are a few minus points.
Firstly it is £3 to get into what is essentially a bar, but this isn't uncommon for Chester....then its another £1 for coats which is also fair enough.... then the drink are majorly expensive, but again for chester this isn't an oddity. Another minus point is the fact that because it isn't over 21s you get the little rich kids in, which does tend spoil the atmosphere a bit, as they glare at you for not wearing the latest morgan clothes or having bleach blonde hair done at Toni and Guy (sorry but they do my head in) but to be fair if you want to stay away from these people then you are better steering clear of Chester in the first place.
On the plus side Loaf does have wicked funky music and really comfy chairs upstairs where you can have a laugh with your mates, although it is really loud, but the drunker you get the less you need to talk and the more you need to dance and with a dancefloor downstairs that does mean that £3 is quite cheap to pay fr a club, especially in Chester....so basically if you are going to Chester for a night out I would reccommend here, but on the whole I would reccommend not going to Chester, try manches
ter instead, its cheaper, has more variety and is less snobby.
