Walked past and it was booming! The live music was brilliant and they plays all sorts of music. Went back for more the following day but wasn't as busy.

We started each night in this bar (stag party) and every night it got better and better. Great music (mainly 90s anthems), fantastic atmosphere, relatively cheap drink and all patrons there to party! Very good fun

The academy is the place to go. They have life music every day. I was there recently on Thursday night. There was nobody there at 9 pm, and 2 hours later was packed!;-) good beer, happy people. Nice place to hang out with friends :-).
