Never been so grossed out, creeped out, bullied and battered simultaneously in my life. Full of lecherous creeps creeping on other people with no respect for personal space or personal choice. Never going here again. Only fun I had was in a mosh pit with my housemate (which is a rarity for me)

We got VIP, so was expecting a decent night. Wasn't that fantastic, drinks were overpriced, music was average. Decent outside area, but definitely a student night out place- shame the prices don't match this target audience.

Overpriced for such dirty place. I've been there with my friends, the ground was sticky (and we were almost the 1st to get in) and it smells terrible. The staff was not friendly.

Student nights are great here... although it can get very busy it is always a great atmosphere and cheap drinks. Love the outside seating and the style of the place.

It is a club and they are pretty bartenders but they are very rude even though you are paying for slightly overpriced drinks. Its summer and it was so hot that there wasn't a part of me that wasn't sweating and they said it had two air condition units but I had to assume they were small.

Drinks are ridiculously priced for the quality of club/bar and the drink you actually receive. Whole place seems a bit disjointed. They had a live sax player when i went only upside.

Can be really good, other nights been a bit quiet. The bar staff are usually really good but the door staff are always over the top moody and give you a bit of hassle sometimes. but once your in the atmosphere is pretty good

Absoluely filthy club - and not in a good way. We were enticed by the promise of circus acts which never materialised, there was nowhere to sit at all unless you paid VIP and couldn't even dance without peeling my feet off the sticky floor on each step. Music was ok though.

Thank Bradleydas

Something wonderful has arrived in for Southampton! Moulin Rouge meets Cirque du Soleil. Flavours of the Mediterranean, great coffee, incredible staff and situated right in the centre of the city, next to the park. Whether it's a quiet business lunch or special occasion, we will treat you to our special brand of hospitality. But just wait until Saturday nights when the sun goes down, for an assault your senses to give you a whole new experience with circus performers & live music. All chance for our 'hair down, ties off' Wednesday to Fridays from 5-9 when our molecular cocktail masters will entertain and amaze you. Be sure to book well in advance for our dining experience (Wednesdays only) as it's already booked 2 months in advance!
