Saw WSTR perform here on the 19th October, it's a fantastic gig venue! Looks brand new and almost untouched inside, with great sound and no barrier, so plenty of crowdsurfing/stagediving if the band and crowd are up for it, and bar far the coolest/weirdest walk...More

Had to go to Borderline as it was the only uk show from Brother Firetribe. Small venue, probably max for 500 people. Decent enough to see one of your favorite rock band live. Sound was ok but stage was very small.

A grumy but nice Club. Drinks are very much effordable and the Music is good. At some summer Weekends, people are quite young. All in all a good one to go for a comfortable night with a not to high Budget.

Not as bad as some f the reviews here seemed to indicate. There's not many seats and from those that there are you can't really see the bands - so it's very much aimed at the stand and watch crowd. There's a curious lighting effect...More

We came to see Jason Arthur in this intimate venue. Nice atmosphere and was clean and tidy. Well worth a visit to see a live act. Attentive bar staff soon got the customers served. Would visit again in the future

First time visitor to The Borderline and was very impressed. Definitely a music venue rather than a club. Great acoustics and friendly staff.
