York has a brand spanking new music venue, The Duchess. It's in the building that used to be The Stonebow Snooker Club. Now it's a venue. We went on Friday night for the first time, to see the essential Hope&Social. It felt like being in another city! It's big, looks good, sounds good and has decent beer. I'll certainly be going back regularly.
And in the meantime we're off to the teeny tiny Harrogate Blues Bar this afternoon for a second bout of H&S.
