If you love techno and house go here, it gets good djs and is really reasonably priced, £3 for a double and £3 entry before a certain time on the door during the week. They now do serve free tap water also

Place is a scam. They advertise drink deals to get people in then charge almost double for them. Also lots of coke snorting going on in the toilets.
