Got to hear Zigy Marley doing his warm up for a show. About a dozen people in the bar. Friendly bartenders and a great friendly bulldog to greet you.

The box is the place to go to see some live music and enjoy a night out. Sometimes things get a little hairy, and people start to ping-pong, but it's all fun
