Nobody ever said, "I think I'll frequent the pub this evening" ; this is yet another example of someone of limited education trying to use a grandiose word in order to give the impression of "oldspeak" and failing miserably.
Actually, in the interest of accuracy, he says "frequented my club" (not pub), but the same argument applies.
