Nasty staff (but good music/dj and bouncers!)

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... read 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

COMPLETE DIVE AND RUDE STAFF! Came here for my first time in a party of 40 for a works Xmas doo and the majority of us got in apart from a couple of us. Myself and my friends who had already got in asked one of the bouncers why they couldn't get in and it was because they did not... More

Weird shape of the floor space, and I tripped over some weird partition, on which people were standing, making it hard to see.

Four excellent bands and it didn't require a bank loan! A bit short on seating, but that's hardly a black mark in a joint like this.

If you're a hipster wannabie or a Uni newbie between 17 and 22 then this may just be the venue for you! If however you enjoy being able to move, like buying a drink in under 20 minutes and prefer good music being played on a quality sound system this may not be your cup of tea. I've seen several...

I went to see Timber Timbre at the Haunt last night - but ended up leaving early due to the terrible management of this venue. We arrived at the venue and what greeted us inside was insane! A friend who had visited the Haunt a few times before told me he had never seen it so busy - it was... More
