Thought Liverpool had some dodgy clubs this place is terrible. Place is empty these days and rightly so, the door staff think they are above the law and everyone is sick of it. The dancefloor if you could even call it that is as big...More

The place as previously mentioned needs a complete overhaul or knocking down and starting again. So bad even the roof has beer splashes all over it. The toilets stink and there are puddles of urine everywhere, and that's only the ladies. Downstairs was so cramped...More

The only place in Douglas to actually have some kind of atmosphere and a packed dancefloor that doesn't resemble the dungeon at the CH. Heated smoking area is great and it's always busy on a saturday night! Prices are average for the isle of man,...More

I would rather sit in a bath filled with horse manure with a portable speaker, and nothing but Justin beiber songs on repeat than come back here. The door staff are that jumped up on steroids they think they can treat you how they want,...More
