Adelphi, Hull

Favourite gig venue. The place has a unique charm, some may think it's worn down but that's what it makes it special. Friendly staff, wide range of drinks and snacks available. Interesting front bar area. Intimate setting which allows you to get close to the bands.

Couldn't speak anymore highly of this place. Would definitely recommend if you like live music. They always have a wide range of musicians playing every week.

It has been quite some time since I attended the Adelphi and in that time the bar has had a complete rethink about the range of beers. No longer is it naff beer which makes the world of difference to a social night out. I may not wait as long before I revisit

Something different. One of a kind.

Probably one of the strangest and most fantastic music venues in the country. Very friendly and great beers inc real ales. Thousands of famous bands have played there on their way to the top. It's a terraced house! And there's a pool room with a double decker bus as the bar! No trouble. No airs and graces, dark and grungy... think CBGB's.

Up close and personal venue, you can smell the legends that have performed here over the years. Been here many times and the place never disappoints, great atmosphere, unbelievable sound for such a small spot and lovely staff! Just an ace place all round.

Went to the Adelphi to see Beans on Toast last night, I loved the feel of the place, nice small intimate venue. Great bar prices and selection of hand pulled beers on offer as well.

What a place, from the outside looks really shabby but I liked that about it, this isn’t your fancy music venue this is back to basics old school stuff, had a fantastic night here and reading the “about”section on their website is an absolute must to appreciate this little gem.

Great music venue

Paul Jackson who owns the Adelphi is a fabulous man who has enabled a series of musicians across a wide sector start off as young musicians and help shape the local and further a field music scene.

He is passionate about music, young people and has an excellent reputation within the city of Hull and further a field.

He has helped bands like the Housemattns-Beautiful South move forward in their career through proving a number of gig opportunities to play at his venue.

A passionate venue for accepting young DJs and sound engineers start out explore and expo their work, and commit to a good cause such at the local music scene.

He should have recieved funding as part of City of Culture, so he could expand the provision and get what was deserved like an update on decor. However, he still has remained passionate and has a collective to help rebuild and maintain his marvelous reputation and venue and keep this gem of a place a live.

Thanks Jacko for helping me find my feet as a young teenager, offering Rockabilly nights to us young ones at the time,despite us all been rebellious, you embraced us all and never forget us all by speaking on Newland Avenue, always having time to pass the time of day. This in turn, has helped keep us all passionate about our musical tastes, for this I thank you very much as your venue was part of my teenage heaven.

Keep rocking Jacko, your a star. Maybe I can come and do a Rocking night for you some time soon so we can attract some income and start some regular rocking nights to re live some good times.

Lee, a little older Rockabilly guy that still has his quiff and I am sure my life long membership is still valid !

Love the Adelphi, love the city of Hull, love the music culture, don't give Jacko your part of Hulls very own history, your a top bloke! Hull locals and musicians all over are behind you!

Keep Adelphi a live!

Old school

What can I say!!! Went to see some live music which was great but £4 for a pint of 5% beer in a dirty glass isn't what I call acceptable, it's a old club with plenty of character but the entrance way stinks of urine from the toilets..I will probably visit again but I'd only drink bottles in future.
