We all visited establishments which were less than salubrious (That means sordid/sleazy for the Gun Bunnys), what did you name them and why?   In Lippstadt we had the "Ti**y Bar", Dortmund was the "Winky W**ky Bar", to name but a couple. pirat

Ah, the "Winky Wonky Bar" !

It was named after the Winky W**ky bird which in turn, was made famous in a well-known Rugby song.

There was the Assiniboine, (sorry about the spelling), in Medicine Hat, that got called "The Sin Bin".

The Sin Bin Medicine Hat. Was stationed at BATU Suffield in the Canadian Forces side. Met wife in Sin Bin 1976. Still married today (to each other!) Anyone remember the Why Not in Detmold about mid 70s? And a bar in Detmold owned by an ex-Guardsman?.

Where would you be without your old Enigma?   Surprised it couldn't crack "Totty". Smile Smile

Stand Down on ENIGMA, I'd heard about "Titty", just thought Winky Wonky" was funnier.  drunken

I recall we were warned to watch our Ps & Qs in the Sinbin. The place was full of Indians - Crow or Blackfoot I think they were.
We trod carefully !

Does anybody know actually how long ?

Brum, I think Geordies bar was first opened around 1948 by an ex ACC WO and was later run by his family, last time I was there it was closed and I think a mini-market or an Apotheke had replaced it. There was also Malcolms Bar, the Senne Eck, Zum Bahnof or the Moulin Rouge where you could take your Mum when she came to visit! Mad

Well now, let me see.... Oh yes! In Soest there was a place near the rail yards called "The Last Chance", probably because it was the one that stayed open 'till about reveille. "Rough" was putting it mildly, but by the time we gravitated there we didn't really care. Never heard of anyone contacting the bubonic plague, surprisingly.  drunken 

There was the "Molly Bar" in downtown Soest not far from the Sally Ann, no doubt because it was owned by Lohofer Brewery and sold only one beer: Die Kleine Mollighe or "molly" for short. Not a bad place, sort of chrome and plastic, but popular.  Smile  

Werl's answer to the Last Chance was on the hill to Wickede across from what was Fort Victoria, known as "The Swinging T*t" (and no, I don't mean Swinging Tot). It was a sort of unofficial boxing club, with the main event between the Black Watch and all comers starting around 2200.  Twisted Evil 

There was the Red Roof near the MQs, a rather sedate place and a few others whose names were simply the proper name, albeit translated to English. I've always wondered if they were re-named by the British after the Canadians pulled out.

In Herford there was "Schmits'", no doubt named after the proprietor. "The Companions" near the Tier Park was run by Herr and Frau Kompania as I recall. It was 7 Sigs' favourite water hole once they left the NAAFI.  drunken

The Why Not is now a tea room
Bob Bar ( ice bar ) has been demolished .
Pothoffs (sp?) is now a shop on the ground flood and flats above .
The Half Way and the Three Quarter ( going up the hill to Hobart ) no idea what they are now , I think they're houses .
The bar owned by the ex-Guardsman I've heard of but can't say which one it was .
The Weinberg in Bergen , the building is still there but I believe it's closed .
The Snake Pit opposite Hohne main gate is still there . Was only in it once and that was enough .
I've been told that the Pink Haus in Walsrode is still open .
The Saskatchewan in Osnabruck is still going .


Information supplied by my Husband as the only one I was ever in was The Weinberg , once !

Slight topic deviation. There is a Night Club on the outskirts of North Nicosia called "I like you Bar". I was in Hohne 5 years ago and I believe what was the Snake Pit is now a Schnell Imbiss.

In '79, going left to right if you kept Normandy Bks behind you...it was Moullin Rouge, Jock's Bar (Zum Tower) owned by an ex RCT full screw and his German wife, Geordie's Bar, Windsor Stuben owned by Mario somebody (later became Malcolm's bar), Senne Eck (just down the side road leading to the railway sidings), Treffpunkt and the Sonne.

The Pleasure Dome (changed names a few times) was located just down from the Senne Eck, but I don't thi k that opened until the 80s? That was owned by an ex ACC bloke I believe.

Minden had the Shack (Gute Denkmal) just outside Kingsley Bks, and in the town down Simeon Strasse there was Mama's bar, Vivaldis and a couple of others.  Studio M's was the nightclub up by the Weserbrucke, which we were never allowed in as some of us couldn't behave ourselves in civilised company.  

That was the worst part about being a singlie in Germany.  All the decent places were out of bounds because the mongels couldn't stop hitting people. And those were the places where all the lasses went.
