The one you are thinking of is 105-107 Charing Cross Road I think - this one...

Old Marquee Club

If you follow the links on the page, there is map and some interesting (mixed) comments. It might make you want to think again about the choice of venue.

The club has moved and re-appeared several times. I remember seeing BCs U-Vox here, although it looks like this was just after it had moved there from Wardour Street. There is more information on the changes here...

The Marquee plays it again

EG - ta muchly!

OK, bit confuzzed now. So BOTH places the Marquee used to be are now Moon Under Water pubs..? The one in Charing Cross Road (the original, where Ultravox! played) and the new one in Leicester Square (where U-Vox played)..? Is that right? No hang on, wasn't that Wardour Street in Soho?

Thanks Flip!

I'm confused too! Not sure what to make of the "wonderful" comments made about the pub, not sure if this is the right one, etc. Have I gone wrong? And wasn't the original Marquee where Ultravox! played on Wardour Street? Is that one a Weatherspoons too??

I don't think you've gone wrong. I've been in that pub several times. Because it is relatively cheap it attracts people that some may not wish to spend too much time around, hence maybe the comments from the more delicate reviewers.

It's very large and seems quite rowdy but I don't think it is really. It also seems to attract lots of overseas students and international travellers trying to keep it cheap. Nowt wrong with that.

The centre of London is not rough. There's less trouble in central London than there is in my crappy little hometown on a Saturday night. Anyway, if people don't like it everyone can easily move on. There's millions of places. It's as good a place as any to start off/meet up.

Thanks 1.Outside! Is that the Charing Cross Road Moon Under Water you're talking about, or Leicester Square? I'm assuming Charing X...

The Moon Under Water is on Charing Cross Road it used to be the Marquee until 1999.
The Marquee was bought by Dave Steward and moved then to the venue which is now called the Islington Academy.
Now the Marquee is in Leicester Square across from where I am working.
So which one ever we are going to just let me know and I will be there...
Cerise I hope this solved the confusion about the Marquee.

Of course I'm going! I'm organising this thing, so why wouldn't I be going? "Ha! Ha! Ha!" indeed... wink :p It's just that I'd read some none-too-shining reviews of the place, and wondered if I'd made a mistake in picking the venue. But people have different opinions.

It is the Moon Under (the?) Water on Charing Cross Road that we will be meeting up. See you there!! excited

I did a recce on the pub yesterday. Just to make things even simpler than they already are, it's definitely not called The Moon Under Water. It's called The Montague Pike . It's also not a Weatherspoons but a 'Lloyds' (same company though). It is, however, still enormous. The clientele looked slightly different to me but it stills seems an OK place.

That shouldn't be too much of a problem, given that London has a nicely convenient zoo, but you might have a bit of a problem getting Winnie through the barriers onto the tube laugh

My mother-in-law collects bear figurines, stuffies, etc., so it shouldn't be a problem for me to bring one along. laugh Actually...bringing Winnie The Pooh would be rather appropriate for me...much as I can't stand him... :p

AH yes dear Tara, but do they know why bringing Winnie for you would be so appropriate?? If this pub thing isnt cleared up half the people will be at one place and the other at the next place. Maybe Flip can take a photo of it and post it so people know what they are looking for LOL.

Still want to make it down to see you hun but not sure about that date. I will email you to see if we can arrange something. Bet you are getting excited, not far off now, is it?

Yes, I know the whole story about Winnie The Pooh and that he was named for our fair city. biglaugh In fact, I think I posted something about it here on the forum. I can't remember where though.

I think the Voxgate location's been sorted. It's at The Montague Pike on Charing Cross Road. It used to be a Marquee club (sadly not the original one.)

This is not an attempt to confuse, but here's a pub that people might like to move on to:

The Rising Sun, Tottenham Court Road

I've been in there today and the drinks are very cheap for London. They also, ahem, sell alcohol free beer for the likes of me... It's not far from the Montague Pike.
