As stated in previous reviews, I cannot fault the Celine Dion concert. She was brilliant, the set up was brilliant, we were towards the back and had no issues seeing her. The venue itself is quite good. However...getting in and out was horrific. We went...More

We have used The Loft the past three visits to Rod Laver (Madonna, Pink and Katy Perry) and each time the experience has unfortunately become worse. The "exclusive" food menu is overpriced for what it is, you'd be better off lining up with everyone else...More
