It is generally £4 a drink with a 40 pence charge for using a card. There is definitely room for improvement here but if the music is sick then you probably won't care too much. VIBES Mostly positive things are said about the vibe at Plastic People. If the tunes are good then the atmosphere usually follows. However, some people think the venue could be bigger and it would be sweet if the drinks were a bit more varied and interesting.
