Meet the Bar Staff and Favourite Vaping Liquids.

Clive – Owner & Bartender

hemingway_barmani159-31The big man himself turned his first pub into the Vape Bar that we all know and love today. He was a 20-fags a day man for the best part of two decades until a trip to the emergency room forced him into quitting.

A man’s man, our Clive doesn’t like to mess around with any of ‘that fruity crap’. At the moment he’s loading up on iVape’s Sweet Caroline. Lightly sweetened with natural honey, this Virginia style tobacco flavour is the South Carolina retailer’s most popular product.

Jessica-Lynne – Vape-Girl & Bartender

jessOur lead bartender and Vape-Girl was seduced over to the dark side 2 years ago, when she first started working here to pay her way through University. She’d never smoked before, but after getting her first Atomizer for a birthday present, she’s been puffing everyday!

Jessica-Lynne loves supporting home grown Vaping-mixologists. Her current juice of choice is made right here in the UK. Attitude Vape have been developing their own range of quintessentially British liquids. Their Punk flavour is a blend of Pink Apple, Exotic Mango and Tropical Guava.

Jonesy – Security

hofer-doorman-1Another Vaper by osmosis, Jonesy feels a great deal more comfortable having a cheeky puff on his pipe, rather than lighting up an L’n’B. Whilst he started up on cheap disposables, he’s recently upgraded to a full blown Vape Mod that he’s rigged up in his spare time.

The man on the door has a bit of a sweet tooth, not to mention a twisted sense of humour, his liquid of choice reflects that extactly. Bad Drip’s Bad Blood comes in a Medical style cylinder, complete with scientifically stained sticker. The crystallised blueberry flavour is laced with pomegranate and vanilla dusting.

Matty Boy – Glass Collecter

mattyAlthough we do get excessively busy on the weekends, there’s not usually that much work for a Glass Collector in a chilled out Vape Lounge. Matty Boy’s always glad of this as it gives him more time to sneak off to a hidden corner for a cheeky vape.

A young lad, full of energy and enthusiasm, Matt never sticks to one Liquid manufacturer for long. The latest brand he’s touting goes by the name of xo vape. They’ve recently launched drip bottles with a wicked day-glow colour scheme, he can’t get enough of their Bubblegum flavour.

Jenson – Mixologist

jensonJenson’s an expert mixologist of drinks, his Tom Collins has won awards and he can flair like a pro, on demand. He’s also a dab hand at Vape Tricks, impressing waiting customers with his wacky smoke rings, clouds and patterns.

For maximum thickness and control, Jenson has a super-secret rig set up. Delivered from China and experimented with for weeks, his blend of vaping liquids is the subject of much rumour and speculation. All he will say is that his base liquid comes from US award winners Frisco Vapor……

Cultural London: Vape City

Cultural London: Vape City

London’s a changed place since the recent Mayoral Election.

A new air of optimism and excitement permeates the air, as young and old are starting to feel engaged once more in our wonderful community.

For those yet to visit our fair city, and are perhaps thinking of stopping at our lovely Vape Bar here, what awaits them will be an entirely changed London. Filled with a new vibrant sense of purpose and drive – 2016’s London brims with culture and good vibes.

london-60sIt’s not always been like this though. Shaking off the rough reputation of its past, our home of Brixton has come along way since Clive opened Clive’s Place two decades ago. Our Clive is still here, working behind the bar most nights. He’s always more than happy to share a story of the ‘old days’ when the bar used to carry his name.

The 80s were a difficult time for the people of Brixton. Still recovering from the recession of the 70s and very much suffering the fallout of Thatcher’s Britain – the people of Brixton struggled throughout the end of the 20th Century. House prices were at all time low, whereas the cost of living had struggling, leaving the low-income earners of London’s South End in a real bind.

Brought together through their mutual struggles, the disparate cultures of Brixton rallied around their common interests: music and dancing.

southend-dancehallThe Southend Dancehalls of the 80s were places of cross-generational and multi-cultural intermingling. Flying in the face of the bigoted stereotypes of the time, different social groups of all ages came together to dance the night away, make new friends and smoke!

Now a days we still like to have a dance and boogie in Brixton, but we’re not so keen to do it in a smoke-filled room. Vaping may not be to everyone’s taste, but the smell doesn’t cling to your clothes and it won’t leave you breathless on the dancefloor!

Here at No Sign Bar we’ve been holding cultural events and festivals for the last couple of years. Book Readings, Open Mic Nights, Comic Conventions; if its cultural, alive with passion and vape-friendly – then we want to hear about it.

If you’ve got any ideas for a new Cultural Event or are looking for a venue to host your Festival or Launch Party – then get in touch with Clive and the Gang. No Sign Bar is a versatile space that can cater to many different needs, and we’re always up for a challenge!
