What's the capacity? Tiny.

Why should punters visit you? Because we are a strong independent business with an emphasis on the punter. We know everyone's names. Like Cheers.

What's the best thing about the venue? Being a limited capacity venue we can offer a more intimate and tactile gig experience for punters and artists alike. We also have a loyal regular custom, coupled with new faces every weekend.

What's the history of the venue? Originally opened as a cool little cocktail bar in the late '90s. Subsequent owners saw it turn into a  pretty "colourful" late night boozer. We took the lease last year, gutted it and turned it into what it is today.

What is your venue doing to help the local music scene? We tour a mix of city-based and local up-and-coming artists. We also never charge a door fee.

What are some of the highlights? Chris Russell's Chicken Walk, Child, Midnight Woolf, River of Snakes, Empat Lima, The Braves, Hotel Wrecking City Traders and more.
