Crouch End has two (yes two) Ladbrokes, as well as a Hills and a Coral. Vegas has a banging nightlife which attracts top DJs from all over the world. Crouch End has Kiss The Sky which is sometimes open past midnight, and attracts trendy media types from all over Hornsey Vale. Vegas has 4000 coffee shops. Crouch End has 4001, and they're all independent. Vegas is a common setting for Hollywood blockbusters and TV shows. Crouch End was kind of in Shaun of the Dead and Peep Show. Vegas has the spectacular fountains at the Bellagio. Crouch End has the mesmeric Thomas Huxley-Jones fountain outside the library. The list could go on - we haven't even got onto strip clubs yet!
