Academy review 1 Users say 1/5 Rate it

Formerly Spirit nightclub, the new-look Academy on Abbey Street Middle has been reborn largely as a live venue. Still, there is much to love here for clubbers: ditching the complacent vibe that befell its naff predecessor, the Academy comes to life on Saturday nights. Spinning current club favourites and festival tracks, popular DJs including FM104 DJ Al Gibbs are on hand to provide the ultimate Saturday night soundtrack. Think CSS and Klaxons rubbing proverbial shoulders with Felix da Housecat and Roger Sanchez.
