CAMPAIGN DIARY: Sak it to ’em: annoyed drinkers give Eardrum an angry ear-bashing

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 lunch.

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

lunch.



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?
