Voodoo Rooms review Rate it

This glorified pub function room and its assorted bar and restaurant areas comprise the plushest venue in town. The booking policy stretches to relatively leftfield names: Pharoah Sanders, the Blackbyrds and Ulrich Schnauss have all played, and Adrian Sherwood's mix of a Mark Stewart & the Maffia show took advantage of the to-die-for sound system in a way that no one has matched. Thursday's indie night Limbo mixes carefully curated triple bills of local, out-of-town and international acts. The main bar is populated at weekends by a cocktail-drinking crowd who seem to think they're in Sex and the City.

As well as nightclubs and rock gigs, this atmospheric venue has a taste for gothic cabaret and burlesque. Fitted out in black (black walls, black ceilings, black bar fittings) with gold trim on the Georgian cornicing, it's a perfect match for the rococo glamour of the alternative variety nights.
