Extremely happy with the venue. The comedians were ace and delivered an amazing night. Was sat in the front row and enjoyed the audience participation. Drinks prices were not too bad and enjoyed the cocktails that they offered. The club afterwards was okay.

This was the first time myself and my husband had attended a comedy night, we both laughed from start to finish, would highly recommend to anyone that is not easily offended.
