El Retrovisor San Jose Reviews
Mar 02, 2007
Check me out - going to fancy nightclubs at my age. El Retrovisor seems to be a hang out for youth and university types. It was a little bit like being transported back into England as:
1. It had an English feel to it, so much so the bit next to the dance area was a little "Working Mens' Club".
2. It had a theme which was unsurprisingly "Retro". It was pretty well done though. For example, the chairs had cloth covers on them with the heads of older celebrities. I had a rather cool Axl Rose (never realised what that was an anagram of until a few months ago), but the Boy George chair was unpopular - anybody returning from the bar found that there cooler one (B.A. Baracus for example) had been swapped.
3. There are Goths - I was like a pig in muck.
The music was a bit pants where we were, but I am reliably informed that stuff more towards my taste is played quite frequently there.
I was very proud of myself for recreating a Pilsen beer label to say someting rude. I shall attempt to recreate and photograph at some point...
