Probably my favourite nightclub on a Monday. However, it's always so busy and always has a big line. Have to queue from early in the evening compared to other night clubs. Could also be queueing for an hour or more.

Not a bad place, it's on a few different levels, service was fine, younger crowd though being close to the university area, fine for a quick pint or some of their live music, but there are better places close by!!
