- Up and down the south WCML (mostly)
There's long been an issue with "lads out for a ****-up and a fight" at Xscape generally, it was always an issue with the various mediocre nightclubs that have been up there over time too. That's why anyone wanting a no-attitude club night out in MK goes to Pink Punters in Bletchley instead. (For the unfamiliar, it's nominally an LGBT venue but is owned and run by a straight couple who just saw a gap in the market and on a Saturday night has a totally mixed crowd, and the security is done very well indeed - very much in control of things but completely without the "rentathug" attitude you often get from bouncers).That's the only 'Spoons I've actually seen a fight break out. Been to rough places all over the country but experienced that closest to home, I don't go in there often so maybe just got unlucky.
MK can sometimes end up with a nasty "small town" type atmosphere in its bars and clubs, which is a shame.
