From a loyal customer who has been going to switch for a few years to be treated badly and embarrassed by one member of staff and hence destroying their evening to the point of not wanting to attend the venue again. Having been singled out...More

Switch is apparently owned and operated by the same folk who run Air to the right and the new Q bar (ex-Cuba) to the left. The outside and colour schemes all seem to fit. I wondered why they weren’t all opened up and liked but...More

Neighbouring the former king of Plymouth, Switch offers cheap drinks from 8pm and is lit until the early hours of the morning, sometimes closing later than 6. Banging night out, especially on student nights. Cheap drinks from 2-1 cocktails and £1 pints.

You got Cuba or you got Switch, you have got to be off your head to go to Cuba over Switch. Switch is the best place to end the night by far, no comparison. Only negative is the toilet door doesent lock, gutted.

Quite disappointing that the staff let in their friends and their dogs with partiality and the dog wets the floor and the owner becomes nasty to a customer who just wants to have fun with the dog. I don't want to keep coming back to...More

The owners say that this can be treated as a new venture but they evidently want to hang on to their established customers from Bang Bang. This is now a completely refitted bar/club which operates as a cafe/bar during the day. It has a fresher...More
