Great place to go clubbing

The Haunt is a great place to pick up hot chicks who are here to dance the night away. Everytime I go down, I make sure my hair is on point (slicked with olive oil and sugar) and... read more

Went with a small group on a Saturday night. Pure 80s, great tunes, good bar staff. Pleasant bouncers and only £3 entry made it appealing. It's now almost 12 hours since we left and we are still both partially deaf in both ears! The coat check took far too long... Need more staff in there at times but not sure... More

A gourd of my friends were out for a birthday celebration, and it was ruined because of this club. The venue is far too full to be safely controlled. We couldn't enjoy the music due to be shoved cont stably and vein crammed in like sardines. I was assaulted by a bouncer, who was not wearing any kind of uniform... More

The Haunt is a great place to pick up hot chicks who are here to dance the night away. Everytime I go down, I make sure my hair is on point (slicked with olive oil and sugar) and I shine those dancing shoes up for a night on the tiles. The bar staff are really friendly, although the drinks are... More

I was denied entry because I was 'too drunk' despite the fact I had a lot less to drink and was less drunk than my friends who were allowed to enter. The doorman refused to provide a valid answer to my questions and was rude. My friends who were allowed in were refused re-entry and said the music was awful.... More

We went to this venue on a night out.... I say went, only half of our group was allowed in. The other half were refused entry by rude door staff. The other half of the group was refused entry because our group was too big and had too many men in it. It was a group of 13, hardly a... More

Reading reports about this place we entered with trepidation as we heard it was a s***hole, WRONG! It is exactly what is says on the tin, great acoustics, fab bar staff.

We visited on a Thursday which was Secret Discoteque night; brilliant cheesy music which we love! The DJ and bouncers were so friendly and really lovely people. However, on our way in we were told we were "Theives" and had tried to sneak in (which we hadn't... we were queuing exactly the same as everyone else!) and then told we... More

Came here for a concert end of January. Took a long time to get in due to scaffolding / building works. Good concert and cheap so can't complain. Quite a narrow standing venue so difficult to see if at the back.

I finally visited this place at the weekend for the first time after having the 80s night recommended to me as a post Christmas party night out. There was 8 of us, all with really different tastes in music but we all had a ridiculously great night. Everyone was singing along and the dancefloor was packed. I didnt see any... More
