Never been so grossed out, creeped out, bullied and battered simultaneously in my life. Full of lecherous creeps creeping on other people with no respect for personal space or personal choice. Never going here again. Only fun I had was in a mosh pit with...More

We got VIP, so was expecting a decent night. Wasn't that fantastic, drinks were overpriced, music was average. Decent outside area, but definitely a student night out place- shame the prices don't match this target audience.

Overpriced for such dirty place. I've been there with my friends, the ground was sticky (and we were almost the 1st to get in) and it smells terrible. The staff was not friendly.

Student nights are great here... although it can get very busy it is always a great atmosphere and cheap drinks. Love the outside seating and the style of the place.

Drinks are ridiculously priced for the quality of club/bar and the drink you actually receive. Whole place seems a bit disjointed. They had a live sax player when i went only upside.

Absoluely filthy club - and not in a good way. We were enticed by the promise of circus acts which never materialised, there was nowhere to sit at all unless you paid VIP and couldn't even dance without peeling my feet off the sticky floor...More
