Went 22/11 to see Holy Moly and the Crackers, Very reasonably priced drinks (less than £4) for a concert and very easy entry. Sound levels were good and everyone had a good time. Would come back in the future.

Fun little live music venue above a bar in the heart of Hockley. Inexpensive night out listening to good live music, small enough to feel friendly, but big enough to get a good crowd in. Small stage with good sight lines from the floor. There...More

A downstairs bar & a upstairs night club/small live music venue that frequently as up and coming bands playing. The beer while not cheap is fairly reasonable for a club/music venue. The downstairs bar is comfortable & attracts a young/student crowd.

Went on a Saturday night with friends, it was quite bad, awful people there and the bodyguards were nowhere to be seen. Wouldn't recommend at all. The only plus side is that drinks are quite cheap and the music wasn't that bad. The downside is...More

Curfew is 10pm and doors are usually 7 so about 8.30/9 for headline. They always post time on FB and Twitter on the day
