This is a fabulous venue, Great soul, and funk music. Both well known and underground Live bands...check the website before you visit to see what's on. A sophisticated crowd.. no yobs here! As close to the London party scene as you'll get. You'll dance all night guaranteed! Don't take my word for it :-

Top class music venue for soul music afficionados. Great sound system and top class tunes. Probably the friendliest bar staff in the city. A great night out.

Brilliant show by Kenny last night , on stage for two hours and performed fantastic.Had crowd singing and dancing to all his songs, great atmosphere. Staff coped well with another sold out show,drinks were good and reasonably priced.Great location for live shows and also great choice of music played.

If you're looking for a strong cocktail, this is your bar, not as highly priced as bars near by too! We came for the soul music, we came on the wrong night 🙈 funky house dj but there are acts on Saturday and Sunday, we just came on the wrong night.
