Let's get the good out the way first DJ was good and doing his bit excellent. OK so even 5 pounds to get in was too much.. the place clearly needs doing up (I went the cosmic ballroom a few years ago and I'm sure it was not this bad) the place stank the walls were bare and covered in mold, the floors and stairs like those of an abandoned building. Yet despite this the drinks prices were extortionate and it was 10 quid min spend to use my debit card. Not a club a ****hole.

Don't provide free water downstairs
Mar 2019 • Friends
I was here for a jungle night and one of our party was refused water at the downstairs bar, being told they need to go upstairs as they were too busy to supply water. I thought this was out of order so messaged them about it. They stated that their paying customers deserved priority a the bar. Everyone there had paid £8-£12 to get into the club. There should be no obligation to buy alcohol after that. But if you do purchase this damaging and dehydrating drug here, you should be able to get water as easily as possible. It seems they only care about good service before they have gotten you drunk, after that you deserve to have water withheld. Yes, it's not difficult to go upstairs for water, but as a harm reduction measure, it should be as easy as possible for people under the influence to get water. Other clubs manage to fill many glasses of water in advance ready to give out to their customers when needed. It should be the same here. They are showing how little they care about their customers.

As a positive, the sound is good.

Great little club

Great little club with a nice sound system. Drinks....well water particularly steep at £3 a bottle. Even Cream in its heyday and now don't charge that! But only gripe about it. Revoke put on a good Night, great music good crowd. Would recommend

Best place in Newcastle for techno/house
Feb 2017 • Friends
If you love techno and house go here, it gets good djs and is really reasonably priced, £3 for a double and £3 entry before a certain time on the door during the week. They now do serve free tap water also

Breaking the law
Nov 2016 • Friends
Don't supply free water even when presented with proof that it's the law to supply it in venues that serve alcohol. Barmaid became abusive when I asked. Will be contacting council

Great underground scene, however its pretty messed up/potentially illegal?? how they do not offer free drinking water and shut off the cold water taps upstairs when some people are clearly dehydrated from the heat which could be dangerous so you either have to buy drinks that they make up prices for or buy a refill of water from the man in the toilets. I do enjoy a good night out in cosmic but if they just fix this issue it would be an amazing club.

You'll either love it or hate it

Not sure why this place gets so many bad reviews, I think most reviews on here and facebook are from people who just aren't in the right place. You'll either really enjoy Cosmic or it just won't be for you.
I've been a few times, door staff generally don't seem to care much about anything but there's never been trouble when I've been. It's £5 entry for guestlist or students on a Saturday night.
They probably named it 'ballroom' cos people really do come here to dance and enjoy the music, it's got a completely different atmosphere to most other clubs. The crowd tend to be friendly and the drinks are on the cheaper side (£4.50 doubles I think) but it's not really a place to go and get blind drunk.
Yes they do charge £3 or so for a bottle of water and I'm fairly sure they turn the cold taps off, but it's not an unfair decision as the venue has to turn a profit to stay open and £3 is hardly extortionate.
By the way there is no cloakroom which is a bit annoying but apart from that it's a class venue and a decent alternative to the larger clubs.

Scam
May 2015 • Couples
Place is a scam. They advertise drink deals to get people in then charge almost double for them.

Also lots of coke snorting going on in the toilets.
