Best news in a while, for a lot of us. After the sudden and unsettling closure of the much bigger premises in Bretonside, at last we see part of the ressurection with the revamping of the Junction at Mutley.

Dan James, the successful owner for a decade of this excellent live venue announced this weekend (9/10 July) that the White Rabbit at these premises within the Bretonside Bus Station has closed its doors for the last time because the city council has sold it all for redevelopment as a multiplex cinema and sundry restaurant and retail units, rebuilding a...

Excellent night on Tuesday at the White Rabbit. Best live gig I have been to in a while. Our group of six came out hot sweaty and entirely sated. Large crowd.

Would love to review the place but didn't get chance. They cancelled the show I was travelling to see 24 hours beforehand. Don't rely on having a ticket, doesn't mean you will see a show! Won't be booking any future events here!

Today the local radio and newspaper have announced that Plymouth City Council who own the drab dreadful Bretonside bus and coach station where the White Rabbit has its big welcoming and unexpected premises, is subject to an apparently firm deal to sell to developers who intend to demolish everything and replace it with an IMAX cinema and a dozen other...

We booked our tickets online which was fine to see a comedy act . Advertised as starting at 8.30 with doors opening at 8 . We arrived and entered the dingiest darkest dirty room with a bar, small stages area and standing area all painted in black and reminiscent of an 80's nightclub. The staff were friendly and drinks well... More

Receives a lot of touring bands. Can't make a lot of money. Really is an excellent public service. Interesting ambience in large low ceilinged room in the bus station. Somehow doubt the capacity claimed in the head note. I would have thought three fifty tops but no criticism, this is one of the few committed venues in plymouth with a... More

All the components of this place get it right. The venue is exactly on the button. A surprisingly good selection of music. Lively crowd. I especially like the grumpy Police Community Support Officers anxiously but frustratedly patrolling the dank bus station concourse failing completely to find cause for concern.

Played a gig here on the weekend, and I can honestly say as a performer this is one of the best around. Great intimate setting, classic rock decor, cheap drinks, great local crowd up for a laugh. Awesome venue, will try and catch a gig next time im in the area.

Almost always hot and sticky but I have lots of fun here. Tacky setting in run down bus station but that all adds to the experience. Beware can be full and sold out. Check this place online.
