Just got back from Gran Canaria, luckily it was just a boozy week away from the cab because it was a punting desert, I did do my research so pretty much knew what to expect.
There are two main drinking areas in Playa Del Ingles, Yumbo Centre which is 100% gay or The Kasbah which is straight but very young.
There are touts all over The Kasbah trying to get you in the "girlie bars" in the nearby Metro, curiosity eventually got the better of me ----------- the guy tells me that I can take a look and the show is starting soon ------ when I got to the door the story changed and it was suddenly 10 Euros and that included two "free" drinks, I turned to walk away and the price dropped to 5 Euros for one drink so I thought I may as well have a look ----------- big mistake.
Once inside the club I could see it was a pisshole clip joint, no show and a few unattractive girls but more worrying was the fact that there were at least three "security" guys hanging around (thugs).
I kept close to the door and finished my beer as quick as possible, I literally ran out of that place, luckily I was sober, had I been pissed it could have been very different.
