Bad place, bad music, after paying 10£ just to get in, they also ask to pay a bracelet to go out smoking, never seen such a thing.

Love a night out here. Three floors is perfect for switching things up and drinks are so cheap it’s great

Never had any issues at this club regarding fights or bad service. Obviously if it’s busy it can take longer to be served, but that’s expected and is the same everywhere. Three floors of different music genres; pop, rnb and edm. General good laugh and...More

My son and his flat mates visited here. They are always made to queue which is fine. The bouncers enjoy singling our young adults and intimidating them. They try and provoke them. They will pick on someone out of a group and send them to...More

The bouncers seem obsessed with people having student id's even on a Saturday night which I find bizarre, my mate almost didn't get let in because he didn't have his, think that has to change to be honest. The staff inside are nice and friendly,...More

On a Saturday night good luck getting in if you are male, even if you have females in your group. This is also while on their guestlist, still turned away. Joke of a place, living off their name, and from the nineties.

My 18 yr old son was thrown out of The Factory for drinking a bottle of water. This separated him from his mates, while outside alone a gang of lads began to pick on him, thankfully his Uber arrived just before they kicked off. This...More
