The Colony: another name bites the dust

London’s Soho changed a lot between my teens and thirties, when I was away for a decade, and one of the bars that defined and captured the area’s bohemian feel was The Colony. I’ve been there a couple of times since 2001, and it still felt special and edgy, so it must have been intense in its 1970s prime.

The owner says he’ll relocate, but it’ll never be the same. Vibe rarely travels and edge, like humour, can’t be bottled or built from a recipe.
