We visited the 'worst' nightclubs and bars in Kent according to reviewers to see what they're really like.

Most of us really don't mind where we go out as long as there are good drinks and music, but other people find their clubbing experience much more important.

So much so that they feel the need to write a TripAdvisor review about the nightclubs. And some are less than flattering.

Here are some of the worst reviews of Kent clubs on the site, with just one or two stars but compared with what our journalists at Kent Live really think of them.

The Pitcher and Piano.

The most recent TripAdvisor review gave it two stars, describing it as a "crowded overpriced sweatbox".

The review states: "Avoid like the plague on a Saturday night.

"It's enormously overcrowded to the point of dangerous. It will take you a good half an hour to get to the bar to order a drink, and when you get there you'll have to part with your entire life savings just to afford a beer."

We say:- "Pitcher and Piano seems to generally be the club of choice for the older, non-student crowd in the town, probably due to the common rumour that it is over 21s only, though there is no evidence of that on their website.

"The venue itself is actually pretty reasonable as the building is decent enough and it actually has a really nice smoking area.

"Some people say the bouncers can be a bit enthusiastic when it comes to ejecting you from the premises, but in my slightly hazy experience of tripping over a bench and demolishing a table of drinks, then spending at least five minutes apologising and offering to replace them all I didn't get kicked out, so it's probably not that bad.

"The worst things from my experience are the traditionally sticky flooring and the fact it can get very crowded with little ventilation on the dance floor. Can take quite a while to get served too."

 

Local knowledge, further pictures, and licensee information would be appreciated.

I will be adding the historical information when I find or are sent it, but this project is a very big one, and I do not know when or where the information will come from.

All emails are answered.
