“Go somewhere else!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013 via mobile

I went here to a family members 60th birthday party. Armley is not exactly the best part of Leeds but we were told the car park had cctv. Ok, but the cameras were all pointing at the door, none of them on the car park.

The staff and owner were unaccommodating, unfriendly to the point of being hostile.

They hadn't bothered to order a barrel of beer, so it was all cans. You'd think they would've prepared for a party of 100 people, but it appeared not.

I'm told there was no choice of DJ, they had to have the 'in-house' dj. When he finally showed up, he was about 18 and brought 5 girls with him who scowled at everyone all night. This boy had clearly never had a gig before and was completely useless. He played ballads all night and the dancefloor remained empty. He did not play any requests despite repeated attempts. He killed the party and was a disgrace.
I feel sorry for the birthday boy as it was a very hostile establishment. Not once did they wish him a happy birthday. At 11.30, the dj toddled off, the lights went up and we were all told to go outside and wait for taxis. I cannot understand why this place was booked, the building is absolutely filthy and needs bulldozing.
