Anybody remember a boozer with a wee dance floor called Censors ? I think it was next to or near Watson's.. This was about 1986...

Names familiar, remember Watsons.  If memory  serves me right, I recall another pub with small dance floor in Forbes Place, I think it was called Zoes, beside river, on corner 2044829205_forbesplace.thumb.jpg.fb853243c5019b86a410ace1294597e2.jpg

Remember watsons although it was a no no according to my mate as his mum and her fella drank in there haha. Used to start off at station bar, then workers, the finlay's for the sangria jugs( ok until you started getting stuck into the fruit😉) then eventually ending up in carnegies

You could very well be right.   Problem now is, was there every a Zoes, or was that in my travels. 🤔

I don't remember a Zoe's but in fairness there are some mornings I can't remember my own name!!

Backchat was round there too.

Backchat was next door Cannes.

If you exited Cannes and went right, the entrance to Backchat was up a rather steep set of stairs. It took a lot of concentration to get up them whilst pished under the gaze of the bouncers. Any stumbles and you were out on your arse.

Paisley during the 80s probably had the most pubs and clubs per head of population in the UK. 😂

Used to be a great place for Friday/Saturday night pub crawl, didn't have to stagger far.

Didn't Backchat have two levels?

Our memories might be affected due to the alcohol intake.

Most likely!

I was referring to the "dancing" bit., where I used to strut my stuff extremely badly.

It was referred to as "Backstab" for a while after a wee bout of knife violence broke out.

I remember dancing with a young lady and this guy kept scowling at me. He came up and told me I was getting a kicking for dancing with his "bird". He f**ked off for a drink and the girl told me that he was delusional and that he was stalking her. He came back over, and pished as I was, I threw caution to the wind and I told him to fuck off. Fortunately he shat it and violence was avoided.:lol:

Aye, but was Oaky the delusional guy or the "burd"?

 Given his posts on here, most definitely the former.:lol:
