Every time I visit this venue it's memorable. It's perfect I guess for the kind of bands I'm into - the other punters always seem to be a decent friendly sort - there's never any trouble. The bars are well tended, the waiting lines short,...More

Great sound system, nice staff and security, drinks prices are usually good, and loads of space inside (as well as on balcony) so it never gets unbearably packed

No seating. If there are gigs then maybe a disabled area would be helpful. I know it's a nightclub but if ur going to have the like of The Specials, Dualers etc then where are the less able bodied able to go and watch?

There’s a few seats upstairs at the back but you can’t see the stage from them, aside from that there isn’t. I think if someone is disabled you can phone ahead and they might put a seat at the front upstairs.
