This cool inner-city hideout takes you off the buzzing Long Street and into an atmospheric music bar one storey up. Acts range from obscure progressive rock and reggae, to commercial pop and rock. The in-house PA system can crank up enough sound to grab your attention even if you're standing on the balcony, watching what's going on down below. But inside, in the red, dimly lit room, is the best place to soak up the performance. Leave your pretentions at the door, for this is the sort of place where band members mingle with gushy fans and the service ambassadors (aka the waiting staff) are welcoming.
