When a venue advertises that you can buy tickets at it you expect this to be the case! Not here I'm afraid. To be told by the Bar Staff who had just checked with one of the alleged managers, that I should just go to...More

I hear this venue is closed now which is ashame as I had a great time here years back now when we came and saw OPM live (remember Heaven is a Halfpipe) Very small which makes a gig that much better

If you want to attend a gig that looks and smells like a hamster cage then go to the cockpit room 3. The bar staff are rude and obnoxious-blatant 'rock star at the bar' syndrome. I feel like there are at least 60 minutes of...More

Saw The Answer & Tracer here recently. Although the bands could've been better, the venue was fine. I was pleasantly surprised as I've never had reason to attend this venue before. Staff were pleasant, the view of the stage was pretty good even at the...More

This is a great gig venue, occasionally some pretty big bands play here and some really cheap prices. The sound is great and it holds some decent clubnights throughout the week. If you're after glitz and glamour this isn't it I'm afraid but it's a...More
