What’s the capacity? 350

Why should punters visit you? Who doesn't like a pub with a street facing beer garden, pool table and live music seven nights per week?

What’s the best thing about the venue? We're pretty humble here at the Ev', nice staff, good location, a bandroom booked with local and international artists. Oh and ripper drink specials a couple times a week!

What’s the history of the venue? Well, proudly we are soon to say that it's been 25 years since the bandroom was expanded and we have provided live music 7 nights per week! The Ev' has been a breeding ground for young acts to develop.

What is your venue doing to help the local music scene? Straight up continuing that tradition of offering our stage to hard working acts develop. Hiatus Kiayote comes to mind!

What are some of the highlights? Any Mangelwurzel show, moshpits at our metal shows and having a sick time on Mondays and Tuesdays with $10 jugs.
