Been twice , first was to Freddie Mercury tribute and second was to Guns&Roses tribute , very enjoyable evenings , like the size of the venue & feel safe knowing all drinks are in plastic cups and doormen check bags on arrival for anything untoward . The facilities needing loo rolls replenishing more frequently is our only constructive criticism 😄

I recently attended this venue for the first time to hear Craig Charles play a funk and soul club. It really is a great venue, spacious with high roofs to allow good ventilation which is conducive to an all-night boogie.

Great night out, with brilliant music, lights and sound. The security need to wander around and stop over drunk people becoming a nuisance, plus the toilets could do with a upgrade, though were clean. The drinks were reasonable and the staff friendly. Will go back with my daughter, again.

A perfect sized venue for the Highlands. Main floor space is adaptable according to event. Good sound system and reasonably priced drinks. I have attended two gigs here in recent weeks and had an enjoyable time. Friendly staff in box office. Only complaint - no hand towels in the toilets.

Saw Cast here...bangin' gig, excellent venue. Sound quality first class, busy but not overcrowded, good temperature, friendly service. Bar was well stocked, well staffed, and very reasonably priced...I'd definitely attend gigs here again.

Attended an SNP event with family and friends a few months ago. There was an issue with two of our groups bags being damaged by staff in the cloak room. We were given an apology by staff, photos were taken of the damaged items and were promised the manager would call us when she was on duty the following day.... More

The Ironworks entered the Inverness scene in the previous decade with a fanfare of publicity, claiming they would have artists people would want to see for years to come and for a while, they did. Numerous acts such as Morrissey, Kasabian, The Fall and others graced the stage to packed crowds. But now, every musical act booked is a tribute... More
