Keep on walking up to the end of Almond Road, turn left under the railway arches, and you should be able to locate Partizan just by the noise you can hear to your right. It's hard to believe that just a couple of years ago, Partizan were squished into the tiny arch that's now occupied by Spartan, with just a few benches outside where people could drink. Now they're in new premises that roughly back onto their old ones, and they've got huge amounts of space to play with.
The first thing you'll notice is the huge yard area outside, and when the weather's nice that's inevitably full of people making the most of the sun and the booze. But there's also plenty of seating inside for when it gets colder (it may look like the place is closed on cold evenings, but look out for the small door to the right of the arch). Inside, you also get a busy bar serving from half a dozen or so taps, a pretty large brewhouse just behind them, and some pizzas to nibble on if the munchies have caught up with you again. Really, it's the same experience you get at Spartan, just scaled up one hell of a lot, and happily without any apparent compromise. Unlike, perhaps, our next and final stop...
