“Fab night - i'll be returning!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

Having read other reviews i was a little wary of some factors, but still looking forward to a good night. I was pleasantly surprised that others had exaggerated some of the bad aspects. Got there just as doors opened and got a seat fine (opted for a stall rather than the last remaining tables at the front!), very small percentage of people had to stand. Comedy obviously depends on how much you pay/night you pick, being a thursday and with frankie boyle appearing (not as the headliner!) it was superb. Extremely good value and the best way to see comedy is in an cosy venue like this rather than miles back at an arena. Staff were superb, and really respected the comedy dealing with any noise very quickly. One negative is drinks are slightly pricier than average but I can't wait to come back!

“Brilliant Night Out- But get there early if you want a seat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

I have been here many times, Fridays, Saturdays and special events. I have never been disappointed (excluding one night where a group left in the middle of the head line acts set- and he never recovered- though not his or the clubs fault) The drinks are reasonably priced, they offer toasties- no big meals here, though there are some good places round about. Its also not a venue where you have to drink to have a good time, if anything limiting your drinks will mean you may laugh more as you are able to take more in! Itis down a narrow flight of stairs so unfortunately not suitable for wheelchairs and also there is limited seating, so you may be the one doing the standing!

“classic venue and classic sat night show”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

Really good performances. Classic venue with reasonably priced and good selection of booze. Try to get there a bit early and get a seat; avoid the front row if your scared of being part of the act.

“Disappointing ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

My boyfriend and I went to the stand last night to try and get tickets to see frankie Boyle from the understanding that if we went 15 mins before the show we would be able to get any uncollected tickets as the show was sold out. We arrived ah 7 20 pm waiting for over an hour to see if we could get any and in the end there were 4 of us who could not get tickets. The women working there said there was only 1 spare but 2 people had not came to collect there's so essentially 3 spare tickets and they would not let the 4 of us in. We had been waiting a long time and there was room for an extra person but they said they had to hold onto 2 tickets until 10pm which I think is terrible. They lost out on money for the tickets and at the bar. Very disappointing that they would not accommodate and make an acceptation for just 4 people.

Hi there, I can appreciate your frustration, about not getting in to see Frankie Boyle, and whilst it might seem that we were being a tad petty and jobsworthy, the fact is that there are very strict fire regulations that we have to adhere to. We have a commitment to those that have already bought a ticket to provide them with an environment that it pleasant and enjoyable, and it can't be simply about filling the room to make an extra few quid.

Also, the 2 tickets for people that hadn't turned up, those tickets weren't actually returns, they were people that had paid for tickets and hadn't turned up for the show. If the person on the door gave you those tickets and then the 2 people turned up moments later then we'd have had to turn them away, even though they'd bought tickets. This wouldn't have been fair, and as is rightly the case we have to err on the side of caution.

Hopefully that makes sense, and if you want to see Frankie please note that he's on the bill on Thursday July 2nd in Glasgow.

“fun night out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

great atmosphere if a little crushed, fabulous night out. Toilets are the only drawback…….basic is a good word to describe them but that certainly wouldn't stop us going back
