To give you an understanding of Slim Jim’s, let us just tell you that someone once invited us on a date here, we declined, and never ever saw them again. That’s because the ceiling of this rock ‘n’ roll dive bar is covered in discarded bras and the music is very loud, so whilst it might not scream ‘intimate date night’, Slim Jim’s is perfect for when you’re looking to get sensationally drunk on a weeknight. Not only does their 5pm to 8pm weeknight happy hour include a range of strong cocktails, you can also get four bottles of beer for £12 or a pint for under four quid. Oh, you can also order double house spirits for a casual £1.50. See, all your sensationally drunk needs covered.
