We loved the space! The venue is small, but we'll played out and decorated in a funky style highlighting their love of music. I highly recommend it if you are interested in seeing music in an intimate setting.

They advertise to be a club but I would say it's more like a bar. We were there for 80's night and the music and dancing were fun. Very old and dingy inside. Bathroom was nasty. Typical bar.
