“Cheesy but good for a laugh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Went to The Keys last night in a large group for my birthday and had a great time.
The music is mainly mainstream but sound system is great, soooo loud and the multicoloured dance floor great fun, although don't mess about or the door staff will through you out !!!!
The keys is a definite if you want a wild night out in Yarm.
