I have always loved this place. It is even better now since the renovation. During cold periods you can sit inside and have a drink or cup of coffee while waiting for the doors to the gig to open. Upstairs pub and downstairs the venue.

If you want a drink by the station, this will serve your purposes. It carries a fairly typical selection of beers for the area. Has a pool table.

We get with friends around and found this place by accident. It's pretty cool if you like the rock music. One of the best local band I heard recently. It's really awesome, people are friendly, it's all you expected from a place like that. An...More
