Hosting bands and solo artists six nights a week, we are dedicated to bringing you the very best in up-and-coming local talent, rising national stars and famous acts from around the world.

Every genre of music is welcome, and we pride ourselves on providing everything a band needs for a performance with a full backline, 5K P.A. and lighting rig, and some of the best sound engineers in town. No other venue in town does as much for the local scene as we do, a fact borne out by the sheer number of bands and promoters that keep coming back.

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff are always happy to help out with any of your requirements or needs, so if you're simply grabbing a quiet pint in the afternoon, having a big night out, playing or putting on your first gig, or even just curious, come and check us out – you won’t be disappointed!
