While there are times when we complain bitterly about having our
offices in deepest, darkest Hammersmith, the location does have its plus
points. At least we’re safe in the knowledge that the only trouble we
experience is getting stuck on the Westway while trying to get back from
If we were based in Soho, we could be beset by the same problems that
have dogged Eardrum, the radio specialist. Its offices are located
directly above the newly opened Sak bar in Greek Street and, although
it’s handy for a swift Sea Breeze after work, Sak’s disgruntled punters
have been taking their grievances out on Eardrum.
One menacing message left on the company’s answerphone complained about
the conduct of one of Sak’s doormen, the customer obviously assuming
that Eardrum was in charge of the bar.
Who would have thought that Hammersmith’s total lack of fashionable bars
would ever be something to be thankful for?
