If you truly love music then do yourself a favour and avoid this place at all costs. I have been twice to see bands I love and both nights have been ruined thanks to the appalling sound quality.
The first gig I went to I made the mistake of not taking any an ear protection and was left with ringing in my ears for almost a week. It was that loud it was painful.
The second time I was prepared but even with ear protection the sound was too loud and this time the sound failed. The band gave up it was that bad.
Another reason why this is a terrible music venue is the concrete floor which is so unforgiving that your legs and back ache after half an hour.
Finally, the drink prices are extortionate.
Like I said at the start, please avoid this place for gigs. I certainly won't be back.
