Yes, the Thrash Zone as we knew and loved it is no more.
However, despair not, fellow hop head metal freak nuts bananas bonkers boozers!
There is a new Thrash zone.
It opened yesterday, December 1st.
It's bigger, longer, wider, harder. Satisfaction guaranteed.
I was surfing the web when I noticed my good friend Captain Tugwash had posted a pic of the place.
Well, then I just had to rush on down there, at 11pm and check it out myself!
Here are a few pics of the place:
The front, as you enter thru a small glass sliding door (easy to walk straight past it!)
As you can tell, the place is a lot bigger. Two t three times bigger. It's also wider, meaning you can go from front to back of the bar easy(er!).
He has 7 taps right now, with the option and space to add a lot more later on. The place is still undergoing construction and will just get better but right now, with the smell of fresh paint, big screen TVs resting on the floor, just a few taps and a load of happy metal freaking craft beer drinking lunatics, it's already started off in a great way.
Be prepared for a whole new Thrash Zone that still retains the essence of the old but brings in the extra oomph of the new!
It certainly offers something different from the other craft beer bars. Loud music, energetic regulars and always a warm welcome. This could be another classic craft beer bar.
I think this pic matches the atmosphere in there:
Gotta luv it.
The beer qulaity is very, very good.
Very friendly place. Don't be put off by the Thrash metal connections, everyone is friendly here.
Their main bar is a great long front bar. It goes on like one of those long bars that feature in Western movies. I just want to slide my pint down to the end...
Koichi san does a great job as usual in pouring the perfect pint.
Here is an example of the Thrash Zone pint. Almost no head. Filled to the brim.
The bar also bends around to the right, at the far end. This offers up more bar space and leads to the toilets. Great bar.
Definitely recommended. They are still adding to the beer and it is nowhere near finished but go there and grab a pint and savour the atmosphere.
Map is here, on the website.

It's located right opposite the Lawsons, the other side from the main road. Look for the first floor glass sliding door and the small Thrash zone sign.
Sorry, that's all the info for now. Late for boozing! Will write more when I have time. Rock on!
