This one has never really been solved, and I'm still convinced this was a real bar.
It's a hell of a set for 7/8 minutes on screen.
I have been looking for clues to see if anything can make it out as a real bar, but not found owt yet.

Anyone?

We're talking about two bars here ... there's the bar which I imagine was near the site (the one with the pinball machine etc, featured heavily in Home Thoughts from Abroad, where Dennis made his 'Sundays were really boring when I was a kid' speech and Neville used the payphone to ring Brenda etc.).

Then there's the Expose club as you say.

Both look pretty elaborate for stage sets, but the Expose place definitely must have been a real venue. Probably in Hamburg as most of the Germany sequences were shot there.

No idea how to find out, unless the original writers/producers can be contacted?
