Went to see a stand-up comedy show grate little theatre tucked away. Wouldn't have otherwise found it, if it wasn't for the show. Got lots of other shows and events. Good outdoor waiting area with food and drinks.

Second time here. Exciting atmosphere with lots of performance venues. Container which is a shipping container. No Chardonnay at the bar so settled for an $8 Shiraz in a tiny plastic cup. Great vibe. Enjoyed the place and the show.
