Came here early afternoon so admittedly no bands etc, old fashioned disk jukebox with not the best selection, very quiet and not quite as good as i expected.

One of my favourite rock/metal bars in London. Have moved to Birmingham recently, however there are very few rock bars that compare. Great music and good alcohol. Love it here!!!
