Feeling gloomy, England


If Winnie-the-Poo’s friend Eeyore had lived in central London, rather than Hundred Acre Wood, you can bet he would have loved this nightclub. Because Feeling Gloomy (as the name suggests) is the club of all things glum.

Described as “the club night that will bring a tear to your eye”, Feeling Gloomy plays only the saddest, most melancholy music, cherry-picking the songs with the most miserable lyrics. The idea – according to the founders – is that sad songs can actually make you feel better.

So if miserable is your idea of fun, head over to Islington’s Bar Academy in London for some gloomy pleasure every Saturday night.
