This venue is truly one of, if not THE, most disgusting 'dive' on Plymouth Barbican. Filthy dirty, seedy and expensive; to be avoided at all costs and certainly do NOT pay to enter! A particularly poor choice for a Singles Night since the appalling band...More

The outstandingly successful Catch 22 fish cafe/restaurant has moved across the Parade to occupy the front part of this club and the cobbles outside as a base until it's large barge conversion project is complete possible in 16 months time. The Barbican Live Lounge has...More

Tried to charge £2 entry to a nearly empty bar with boring performer followed by a cheesy DJ. Door staff were busy flirting with local slappers. Dirtiest establishment I've seen for some time. Dead plant near the door, filthy toilets with 70's fittings, passive/aggressive patrons....More

First of all the drinks are extortionate! £4 for all drinks no variation in price for the bottles and pints. The pints didn't taste right so had to be swapped Stella with a bitter after taste, later on the bar man couldn't pull a pint...More

If you were in a big group and knew there was good live music then you might come here. Its not a place to come just for a drink. There is a continuing general cleanliness problem and I have found that the draught beers or...More

I wouldn't come here unless there was live music being played, the place is quite grotty (blood stains on wall and toilets needed attending to) however I did enjoy the night watching joker play. Bar and security staff were fairly polite.

Only worth coming here if there's a good band or singer. Not somewhere I would come to just for a drink. Don't get stuck behind big people if you want to see. Beware the steep staircase to the facilities downstairs..
