As probably the oldest person in the premises I am usually daunted by such places which impacts on my ability to enjoy myself without looking foolish. The Night Cat is full of 20 somethings mainly, with the odd 'older' patron looking to 'mingle'. I hasten...More

We were a group of ladies coming here on a Sunday night. Salsa dance lessons were fun, the band was great, lots of dancers, nice venue. Awesome party atmosphere without drunks.

Our bouncers are instructed to look for people that are too hammered to come in to the venue, even if they have just left for a cigarette. People hate being rejected when they have already paid their entry fee and we hate doing it but...More

I'm so upset with myself for not knowing about this place. Always lineups but I never investigated it. From the security at the door to barstaff to the fantastic band. The layout of the room and the different lighting was very special. I felt like...More

Great music BUT let down by all the sleezy pervets (mainly men) wanting to rub up against women on the dance floor, groups of which will circle the girls and turn the place into a sleezy dive. There are also to many wannabe salsa dancers...More

The business has changed hands since this review. We've gotten rid of all the sleezy perverts by charging a door fee, upgrading the room in a thousand ways and retraining staff to filter them out. Come back and see for yourself?
