The other place that was good was metropolis on Bethnal Green road. Sort of a bridge between Browns and stingfellows
Metropolis, now theres a blast from the past. When i used to work in the city around 12-15 years ago and before i started punting (and when i was very niave) i went there quite a lot. Next to Cambridge Heath Station if i remember. I thought it was the be all and end all of strip pubs. Some of the girls would remember me and always come over for a chat when they were not working. I remember there was one i really fancied (and she knew it) and one night she said would i like to come upstairs to the private area where we could spend some "sexy time" together. Stupidly i agreed and once we went upstairs it was all done out in some type of egyptian temple style decor. She asked me if i was gonna buy her a drink which i did and we then spent the next 30 mins with her starkers and giving me a few erotic lap dances. I was allowed to touch her but nothing else. Afterwards she then told me our session was £100! And as there was a bouncer in the vicinity i could not get out of it so i had to cough up the money. I never went back again and started punting soon after.
So the moral of this story is:-
1/ We should all learn from our mistakes and not be easily led.
2/ No idea what Metropolis is like now, but if you go, be careful, you could find yourself spending a lot of money i a very short space of time.
3/ Stick to Punting, at least most of the time you get to do what you want!
