- Drinking on your own…
I used to work away from home a lot. It was just something you had to learn to do, otherwise you’d go crazy sitting in a hotel room all evening. I’d quite happily do it now, unless I was in Scotland, in which case I’d be afraid I’d bump into Teej on a similar lone-drinking evening.Posted 6 years ago
Well, I’m doing it and am completely bored!
Stuck in the NEC for the next 90 min so though I’d grab a pint and read…. All I feel is drunk and lonely! (ok, on second pint…!).
Got a 3 hour train journey to think about my actions, but does anyone here genuinely enjoy the ‘ drink for one’ experience?
To top it off, its gonna be subway for tea 🙁

Nothing wrong with a solo beer or two. I often find myself in a random bar/pub/cafe in a random city with a book and a beer for company. As TJ says above, there’s also something nice about chatting to random folks. Have met some fascinating people that way.
If, however, by solo drinking you mean hunkering down in your hotel room with a litre bottle of cheap whisky, then you have a problem.Posted 6 years ago
Try not to throw up over a lady.
Worst ‘drinking on my own’ experience was in a hotel in Vienna. Had bin out to a concert of Mozart music, had a wander around but it was quite late and nothing seemed to be open except the hotel bar. Which had only a couple of solitary business traveller types sitting in it, who I din’t really want to talk to. Had one (really nice) beer there, then took the next up to my room, and watched a bit of Austrian telly.
I spose a nice pub somewhere interesting would be ok, but a near-empty hotel bar is such a soul-destroying place. You’d meet people like CFH ffs…Posted 6 years ago
I don’t even know what that is so I can’t make a joke about it. 😳
Poshest place I ever drank in was the bar of one of the proper spensive London hotels can’t remember which one a friend was staying there with work. Order drinks and it’s brought to you all poncy. No jukebox, no pool table, no atmosphere.
We cut out and went to a pub. 😀Posted 6 years ago
