Hello all...

It has come to my attention that there are reviews regarding previous managment and pubs on this profile. I will mark this profile as closed, and will open a new one where the Live Lounge can recieve a whole new rating and review board.

Thank you.

Just to prove that I'm conceited enough to read my own reviews, I've noticed something a of a mistake. My reviews of 14th August and 24th April 2007 that are listed here (under the Live Lounge in Leeds) along with several others, are for an entirely different bar - Fifty5 in Camden. I've never been to the Live Lounge, (or Leeds for for that matter, or West Yorkshire for that matter) so I think you can probably discount my review along with most of the others.

Upon reflection my original assessment was a bit hard. This is a quite nice bar, with skilled bar staff and quite good music. Like the previous comment, I just took exception to the amount of reviews that appeared to be written by marketing agents, Zoe Strimpel, the bar itself, or someone who's day job is to write commercial radio jingles. If the product is good then let nature take its course, and it will rise to the top. There is no need to manipulate this site as it makes a mockery of the whole point of it being here. An ok bar, so six or seven out of ten. In fairness, this place is a much more pleasant drinking experience than the Hawley Arms around the corner, which on my last visit appeared to have transformed itself from being a nice old boozer into sodom and gomorrah...

I have now visited, and the best I can say is that it's a competent cocktail bar with fairly reasonable prices. and totally uninteresting beers. Seems slightly popular with screeching student girls but hardly worth a solid rating in the mid-sevens. I love my cocktails but this establishment did not impress me in the slightest. Certainly not worthy of compare to the top ale houses in the land and just as certainly not worth a rating of 7.3 on the beer in the evening scale. (I think I might give it a 6 on a good night. But I did not visit on a good night, just a 4/10 night).

Many of the previous comments look very much like advertising copy ("This bar has something to please everyone without failing"... "can't fail to satisfy", "totally luscious and mouthwatering experience", "greeted and treated as regular by staff and locals alike". And so on), and I'm sure few of them were written by actual customers. As this site appears to have no mechanism for dealing with shills, I felt obliged to ramble on. Sorry about that.

re yesterday's comment by "an_ecunemical_matter": the minimal impact of a low rating on a pub's overall rating is not necessarily due to ballot box stuffing, but is a straightforward consequence of the minimal impact of a single vote when a large number (here, 54) have already been registered. In this particular case, however, I have no doubt that a few people have played the system and unfairly boosted the rating with multiple votes.

Posting anonymously because I can (that's a whole 'nother issue).

If I as an honest reviewer gives this pub a ZERO,it drops from 7.4 to 7.2. Does it deserve to be here-probably not,the system has obviously been manipulated.

But I shan't descend to that level,but if others wish to do so well.................
