Erm..think I might have got a bit confused about that important point Since this pub will likely be in the Eastend, we should let Gerry decide! Perhaps it could be both at once?
But we don't want anything remotely unsavoury going on, such as like a budgie singles bar.

I'm pretty sure that I've encountered East London boozers that are grim enough to have his'n'her 'poop pits'. I shall spare you all any further elaboration, aside from saying that I'm incredibly glad such places have now been shut down. The beer certainly tasted like it'd been filtered through the bottom of a budgie's cage.

Regardless, back to the ridiculous - given the rise of Hoxton hipsters, you could probably make an absolute financial killing by opening a budgie-themed pop-up bar, although I certainly wouldn't want to inflict the clientèle on our much-beloved feathered friends.

Lyn, if you would like to visit our new boozer in the Eastend, you would be able to see the amazing budgie wall paper in all its glory up on the wall!

That would be quite a sight, you will agree. But since the Eastend is in London (UK) it might be rather a long way to bring Indi just for a drink of warm, cage-bottom-filtered beer?

But if you are still keen, we will have to decide on a name for this budgie-themed pub. That's quite a tricky and important subject. It must attract the right sort so we can feather them for their dosh.

For instance:

Well heeled, dishy birds are the first choice.
Clamorously winged chicks welcomed.
Poor, down at heel hens who don't know why they crossed the road--bless --not very welcome, sorry. .
Down & Outs , Tramps and Common Birds will be completely banned.

Pubs often have double-barrelled names like:
"The Pig and Whistle" or
"The Sewer and Drowned Rat".

Or single ones like
"The King's Arms" or
"The Dirty Flannel".

Or odd ones like
"Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem" or
"I'll Go To The Bottom of My Stairs!"

Why don't we throw it open for your suggestions? Please send in your nominations for our first ever budgie themed boozer with the most wonderful budgie wallpaper in the whole world! NOW!

To start us off, here's my choice: "Come and Budge-Ye Knot"

Let's hear from YOU!

I requote my previous post that this thread is ridiculous still, and ridiculous after, I'm assuming

If the ol' pubs down yonder have such random names, perhaps one like "The Twice a Day Vacuum" or "Sixpence and Not One Vet Fund" would do

Omg this is great! It's so ridiculously hilarious I am going to have to put my thinking cap on now!

...okay, how about "Feathers, Dander, and Poo" but that would be more for a dive bar... Or the more upscale "The Cage" or "The Gilded Cage".

Now would there be a large, intimidating, male English budgie at the door as the bouncer? Will there be species discrimination where ONLY budgies are allowed?

Will there be 'special' nights, such as All Species Night? (with added security of course - can't always trust the parrots and crows) Ladies Night? Singles Only Night? Standard Budgie Night? English Only Night? Mutations Only... etc LOL!

...The Cuttlefish and Millet"?

That sounds very apt! Will certainly attract all the birds.

BUT, wait...the "Cuttlefish" is fine, nice and healthy, but the word "Millet" in the name really worries me.

Think it will be very likely to draw ALL sorts, even, dare I mention them, the Common birds. And we don't want that rough crowd lowering the tone of our new feathery venue, do we?

All that loud chirping, raucous calling, rude words, even--goodness!--vaping? ...you name it.
