Came to see Guns 2 Roses in May 2018. Great venue...not a bad view to be had! Acoustics are good, staff friendly. Drinks a little pricey.

For the second time we are back to see mainly madness a tribute band. Recommend getting there early to queue if you want to have a seat. Small venue feels like having a concert in your living room. Great atmosphere.
