Late start following sound check. Very accommodating with stools for my injured leg.Great sound, intimate stage. Friendly staff.
Bands were fab
Venues like this are disappearing all over Australia. Fight to keep them alive.

Is because places like this are trying to commit suicide.

Just arrived at the advertised time the doors open of 730 to be told we had to stand around (thanks arthritis!) waiting for the door to open "until they were ready".

Couldn't say how long, but they had our money.

The smug blonde girl on the door said "Well if you went to a lot of live music you'd know they often run late". Well thanks for the attitude, but I do, and am one of the few that still does, which is probably why live music venues keep shutting.

Over half an hour later, we are allowed in, and finally allowed to sit down. Simple customer service, guys.

And when they go broke and shut down, they will blame poker machines or the goverment or the internet, or global warming, when all they had to do was show their customers some courtesy when we got here.

Four of us went to the Basement for Mi-Sex. got a table near the stage, ordered dinner with our drinks. Mojito's were very good........Our food was tasty and reasonable priced. Will go again as it is close to public transport......no need to try and get a parking spot in town.

We arrived for lunch on a Friday and waited 15 mins for service before taking it upon ourselves to order at the bar because the waitress still had not served us even though it wasn't very busy, in fact it was quiet.
After ordering, it took a further 45 minutes for the food to arrive on our table.
If you only get an hour for lunch, don't go here.

After reading reviews prior I was a bit concerned that it would be disappointing.. however both the food and entertainment were exceptionally good for the money. Lovely small intimate venue with good service and a great night.
