We visited here for the first time. We enjoyed the cabaret. The music inbetween the acts was good and we enjoyed the vibe and the dancing. Shame the drinks are in small plastic cups. We would return.

Came here during a night in Leeds, very fun, good entertainment and great music. Only thing I'd say bad really is the strobe lighting was too bright and strong. But me and my boyfriend had a brilliant night here together.
