We visit this bar regularly however and over the last 6 weeks, the bands they have had on have being very poor, music too loud for such a small venue, the singers are drowned out by the instruments. While i we're there I used a...More

Barnsley's coolest live music venue with a great vibe, friendly atmosphere and a busy dancefloor full of people having a top night out. The decor and environment are a mixture of Shoreditch cool, and an American blues rock bar and it looks great. Think there's...More

This is hands down my favourite bar in Wakefield. The staff are a credit to the place, the atmosphere is great and the live music is fantastic. Such a great atmosphere.

This is a great, well needed addition to Barnsley's nightlife. When you're inside it has a feel that you could be in Leeds or Sheffield. Great live music too.

Visited this bar for a comedy gig and absolutely loved it. Staff seemed to enjoy being there and the venue itself is decorated really nicely. The Town Hall directly opposite was looking especially lovely too with the fountains on at night. Only a couple of...More

This bar has a great atmosphere, the live music isn't always to my taste but it's good the bar is supporting musicians. They have a good selection of craft beers but the bar staff always give me a half pint glass, Brewdog is more than...More
