Are you a fan of music that rocked your world once upon a time in the 80s and can't seem to find it anymore unless you pay an insane price for it? Gertrude's Brown Couch is where you can get your groove back. The Couch will take you back in time and remind you of the important things in life. Every third Saturday of the month, DJs Simon and Wigan Lee spin 60s garage, girl groups, surf tunes as well as exotica, while every last Saturday of the month Vince Peach spins his passion for Soul music. To feed the appetite you work up on the dance floor, try the pizzas they're known for. The Miami Vice Slice is a pizza with Virginian ham and herbs cushioned by a chunky base of tomato sauce. You could even try the Cock-a-Doodle-Doo, which is the most tender strips of smoked chicken, peppered cherry tomatoes and Bocconcini with an aromatic sprinkling of mixed herbs. The venue also entertains private events, so do contact them for the details. The Couch is also a big fan of art, so if you want some extra exposure by displaying your art here just like local artist Monkey, then please do contact them. His graffiti paints the walls at the Couch, while other artists' works tickle the light fixtures and other corners. Gertrude's Brown Couch is like an addiction you can't get rid of, so do call ahead to know how you can get your fix.
