Hello everyone,

been looking around a bit on Instagram and came across quite a few pictures from pubs and restaurants which made me wonder - are there any mod criteria for picking a favourite cafe/pub and what are they? I suppose if you have something like Bar Italia/Pellicci/Dublin Castle at walking distance it might be easy but if not? Do you go by decor? History? Jukebox? If they play music you don´t like would you leave and never come back?
Would be interesting to hear what your thoughts are (not much choice where I live so I take what´s offered but always interested in finding new places when on holiday).


It's funny, cos a similar subject has popped up recently in a FB group I'm into. TBH I don't know what would be "a mod criteria", but I know some nice places that have been decorated or refurbished with that mid-century coffe bar vibe in mind, 2 in my town and another one in Pamplona (maybe I've posted pics of these places here, but I'm not sure now). I know for a fact Madrid and Barcelona have their fair share of retro-looking bars, but I'll leave that for people who know them first-hand (Crawdaddy, I'm talking about you!):


The restaurant of Valencia's Marina Beach Club:




Also here, the Congo bar, an original cafetería of the 50s that was redecorated in the same style some years ago:




And two pics from my favourite, Pamplona's Moka bar, also refurbished to look like it was in the 60s:





I've spent quite some time in the Moka with good friends, a place where you can also taste some delightful "pintxos".


No exactly packed oot tho'.

Louder than what I'd usually wear but on sale so thought I'd give it a whirl.

The design ,the collar and the pocket logo ,  nothing going for that shirt ,sorry .

Starting to understand why it was on sale now hahah.

Hasn't turned up yet but might be making a swift return back...


Send the shirt back, keep the tattoos.

One for our London based posters (or those passing through....)

Vintage Tony is a new stall in Wood St Market, the indoor market just off Walthamstow

It's run by a familiar face on London's Mod / Northern scene, and he's selling off the bulk of his clothing collection - knits, jackets, shoes, you name it

Tonnes of DNA Groove items, some really nice Fred Perry archive stuff, all reasonably priced - I got a pair of black Bass Weejun tassled loafers for £35

Would definitely recommend!


Is he a big bruiser or a wee smout?
