Me and my friends went to Girls Skate Night. We couldn't skate but staff was very helpful and willing to show us some tricks and give us tokens for free coctails. Great atmosphere and cool layout. We'll definitely come back.

Won tickets to see Royal Blood. Terrific venue. Great staff. Really well run. Have been many times to take my son here to skate. The above applies to those sessions. This place is a gem.

Been here for Sony Movie Marathon. The place is brilliant with super friendly staff. Museum is definitely not what you might used to but worth reading the info. Also had a skate park inside and a bar!
