“Everything cool in one place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

This is such a trendy place and so laid back. I love going in for a coffee or local 'suki' tea and just sitting in the front room but there are also great concerts on, craft fairs, film nights, exhibitions etc. There is always somthing new and interesting to go to - love this place.

“Black Box - Bonded Warehouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

This is a great venue for all things musical and alternative and artsy. Unfortunatey due to funding cuts in the arts, they may not survive. Support this place while you still can. There is a cafe area at the front and a main stage at the back, of this former bonded warehouse. Dionysius, the God of Pleasure and Food and Wine, will look down on you as you pass through the front door!
