⬆️Cheers for chipping in

The last time I went it was a weird hotel bar/restaurant thing - this was years ago and I've never been back since. There used to be a gig venue/bar that everyone (I say everyone, I mean me and the crowd I hung out with) went most Saturdays called Bottoms, behind The Leas near where the underground car park is now. The other place we always went was a basement bar called Allsorts that used to stay open until all hours and be run in a speakeasy type fashion. That's gone now because it was under one of the houses that were opposite the Rotunda that got knocked down.

This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone sometime in '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years previous to that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get nowadays. The site used to be updated more frequently with a calendar of events + voting for best venues and things, and I know it was a handy resource for those who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was about to become. My name is not Gerald BTW, this comes from the name of a pretend paper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, + how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
