Went to see Prince tribute band. Beautiful building, staff friendly and well organised. Drinks a little expensive, apart from that lovely evening.

My friend recently bought me tickets to see Wardruna here but unfortunately she went through a less than reputable third party seller (unbeknowingly). Needless to say the situation was a complete mess, so I called the venue mid-meltdown to see if anything could be done....More

We saw MGMT here at a sold out gig. Beautiful, characterful building realitively small size and high stage meant you could easily see the band very closely with excellent acoustics. Security not like entering a prison! Special night unlike larger ‘factory’ venues, highly recommended!

Superb venue . Very unique and atmospheric. Great views of the stage from the Balcony area but it doesn't matter where you stand or sit as you feel very close to the Artists.

Beautiful venue to see Beach House last night, though overcrowding was a massive problem. Too busy to move through the crowd, even right at the back of the room. Sell less tickets at a highflier price and give people a better experience.

Hi Dave, great question! It depends which event you're coming to but most events and club nights are standing with unreserved seating on the balcony. Any further questions don't hesitate to get in touch via email. Thanks... More

Ditto the above. if you get there early enough you can bag a front balcony seat. Depending on the type of gig the people around and in front of you will either stay seated or not I guess.
