I went to see few friends playing gigs in there.it is an incredible place where you can drink and enjoy live music. I believe that 12 Bar Club has moved to Holloway Road.

Door people always make clear they dislike the non british and just want your money. They are arrogant and ignorants. Really poor costumer service. Shame because the venue is great.

Great venue, nice people, well priced. I didn't go there specifically to drink whisky, but I was impressed with the barman's knowledge of the spirits they had, so I spent quite a lot of time at the bar sampling.

I thought I was going to find some good music but there was a band with old guys wanting to be rockstars. They were not very good. I went on a Saturday night and it was pretty empty. Drinks are cheap though.
