 Where to drink in London ?

I live in the 6th most expensive city in the world. How do people survive here ? A small bottle of alcohol free lager can cost the equivalent of $6.00 US

As a capitalist, and an economist, I realise that these high prices are essential to maintaining London's status as a world financial center. I also want to flaunt my wealth in as vulgar way as possible in order to irritate those Brits who still think that conspicuous consumption is in some way wrong.

So the question is, which pub/bar in the city of London has the most ridiculous prices ?

I'd hazard a guess that the 'Pitcher & Piano' chain would be near the top.

You shouldn't be giving out information on your whereabouts, or you'll likely be hunted down and killed by some Wiccan assassins. Still, you can take comfort in the knowledge that, due to the Threefold Law, when they've killed you, three of them will instantaneously pop out of existence to maintain the karmic balance.

Expensive pubs (none / 0) (#4)

Try an All Bar One - there is one on Regent Street and they charge 7.50 for a glass of wine. Most English people have more sense than to pay this, unless they are twats.
Beer (at least the proper stuff) is supposed to be room temperature.
