I have always loved this place. It is even better now since the renovation. During cold periods you can sit inside and have a drink or cup of coffee while waiting for the doors to the gig to open. Upstairs pub and downstairs the venue.

Your standard rock bar with a great outdoor terrace. The feel of the bar is typical of what you would expect - nothing too fancy - but the music is great.

If you want a drink by the station, this will serve your purposes. It carries a fairly typical selection of beers for the area. Has a pool table.

Found this place with a few coworkers and thought it was one of the better bars in the area if you ask me.

First pub since landing. Weather warm and sunny company smashin. The bar is situated opposite the train station. Good beer at 7 euros a pint.

We get with friends around and found this place by accident. It's pretty cool if you like the rock music. One of the best local band I heard recently. It's really awesome, people are friendly, it's all you expected from a place like that. An...More

Even if bit expensive I find this place just great. Music, atmosphere, staff, drinks, even the furniture - love it all. Upstairs you can play pool and there's often some live music. Downstairs is dark, almost gothic, with dance floor and bars. There's bands playing...More
