“The acoustics in here are great with a really cosy atmosphere. Split levels downstairs which means you can get a view if you don't want to get right up front in the mosh and then there's the upper level which is second to none for great viewing. Three bars with food in the lower level if you need to snack. Staff are great too which adds to the all round great vibe. Go see your favourite band there, or any band for that matter.”
