Visiting the club at the weekend? Be prepared to dance or kick back and enjoy the band and atmosphere! People like to get up and dance in front of the stage. If you prefer a more laid back night, we recommend a Wednesday or Thursday evening.
EACH AND EVERY SATURDAY, AFTER THE BAND FINISHES AT 12:30AM, OUR RESIDENT DJ TAKES TO THE DECKS TO FILL THE CLUB WITH FUNK, R&B, SOUL, AND GUILTY PLEASURES FROM ACROSS THE AGES UNTIL THE EARLY HOURS OF SUNDAY MORNING.
