First time here and it was great. Sloping floor from when it used to be a theatre give it an edge in being able to see the act. The door / entrance system was quick and painless in terms of searches and queueing and the door staff were funny as a bonus.
Don't be put off by maybe the "Brixton" element from when your parents were around, there was zero atmosphere outside or nearby. Great venue.
