Firstly! The staff on arrival were lovely, couldn't have done more to make you feel welcome, vip tickets... Hmm, we were in the main entrance lobby, the prosecco & nibbles were one glass each and a bowl of mixed olives, (hardly nibbles) the pork starter was inedible, (pedigree chum in cutlets) the mackerel pate was ok, not enough toast. The... More

So it's our 17th wedding anniversary and decided to come to bath for a couple of days. Thought that a visit to the club would be a fun night out, and have not been disappointed, the female compare is awesome and really got the crowed going, and the acts have been amazing. Thank you for an awesome night. 10 /... More

We went for my husbands 40th birthday and were not disappointed! We did the VIP meal. The menu choice was good and the food was too. The staff were great and very attentive through your the whole evening and the three different comedians were very funny - as was the Mic. Drinks were reasonably priced. Easy central location. A great... More

Friendly and accommodating staff it's a shame about the food and comedians on the night. Burgers served cold but compensated with free puds. Only one comedian out of three used his comic skills to the max, shame wouldn't bother again.

7 of us visited here for a hen do evening. We arrived and were shown to our seats which were very close to another table making it feel very cramped and not easy to move. The cocktails were very nice but be prepared to wait as they are not made quickly and we spent a good 15 minutes at the... More

Visited for the first time last Saturday night for their Krater Comedy evening. The first indication of a sub-par night was the indifferent and slightly suspicious staff on arrival. I had bought a concession ticket and had adequate proof- they seemed slightly put out that I had not wasted a tree and had my ticket on my phone. Anyway once... More

Thanks for sharing your experience of Krater Comedy Club which runs every Saturday at Komedia Bath. I think your final point hits the nail on the head. Comedy on the live circuit is not the same as Live at the Apollo. It is upfront, personal, not without risk, and for that, exciting. It is a form of entertainment that is... More

I've been to Motorcity a few times and have been to a few gigs. Every visit has been thoroughly enjoyable thanks to the impressive sound-system, friendly bar staff and wonderful design. I'd recommend this venue to everyone.

Sunday evening, seated gig for Yorkston, Thorne & Khan. The venue looked beautiful, candlelit tables added to the atmosphere. Support act, Laura Moody was an unexpected surprise, slightly bonkers cello lady with an absolutely amazing voice. Y, T & K were wonderful. It was a fantastic night. What a great venue, something Bath has been needing for a very long... More
