Pay no entrance and a bit more for drinks to be served by new polite staff grateful to have a job


Pays ya money takes ya choices

Will be interesting to see what the next bar offerings are like ...
If you go in Dempseys before 9 it is free? I bet you cant find many bar staff in Sheffield that have been at one bar for 15 ish years, as an employer they must be doing something to get such longevity from staff!

And it shows how complacent they have got having had the monopoly for so long

So now I am now hearing that QJ prices are grossly exploitative and expensive and that its mainly geared to young gay men with disposable money, Dempseys continues as always to be just basic and occasionally rude, what on earth can the proposed third offering bring us ... maybe something decent finally ?

Cheapest Beer at QJ is 3.60, which is nightclub price really. I think they're still assuming queer folk are wealthy because they 'don't have kids' B-). I drop in on a Saturday afternoon, but I can't afford a session there. Maybe if I dance more than drink.....

Here's hoping the next venue is a pub type place with an alt rock flavour.

A pint of Fosters is 3.60, but half a pint is 2.50. How can they justify charging that for half a pint?

They'll do it for as long as people are willing to pay it, that's capitalism.

Supermarkets have done it for years. Buy 1 for 3.00 or buy 2 for 4.00. Though you wouldn't be allowed to do this under Scottish licencing as encouraging people to drink more by discounting by volume is illegal.

3.60 for a pint is higher than my local, but in town that's about what The Red Deer charges for a pint.

Went in this afternoon. 7 odd for a pint and a half. At least say it's better value to buy a pint when charging over the odds for a half. Someone is having a laff.

So a few weeks in .. whats the general verdict on QJ? And also does it open later than Dempseys in the day?

Also, I have heard a rumour that the whole Sheffield Pride committee has now resigned ?

...so who is going to take over the running of Pride next year, or will there even be one ? If not that would be a real tragedy, we sill need Prides even in this day and age
