Tumbledown old boozer with a roof 'garden' (read: smoking/breathing space) dedicated to giving young, new bands a stage on which to strut their (still developing) stuff. It boasts plenty of familiar, now highly successful names on its list of performing alumni, including Ladyhawke, The XX, Paloma Faith and The Cribs, not to mention the likes of Franz Ferdinand, who treated excited and sweaty, sardined-in fans to a preview of their upcoming third album here in June 2008. A handy staggering distance from Old Street, it's a seven-day-a-week destination venue for all sounds fresh and (at least potentially) happening.

Why bother to comment ... well because I want to save you from having a great music night turned to sh*t by greedy arrogant bar staff. My advice is to go and enjoy the many fun bars around Hoxton and if you want to experience good  music then drop in when you've had enough to drink. The music was great. The bar staff were unBelievable ... greedy and arrogant. Totally wrecked a good night out :(


After paying to get in your presented with rude staff a sign that reads 'draught beer is f**king expensive, buy a bottle' the cheapest is £5 for a 330ml IPA and all the taps are off. No thanks. 


Quality night. Rarely a sausage fest. Recommend it to all!!


Had a great night up to the point where a particular member of Staff decided to insult me when I asked for water. I'm pretty confused as Well. A shame as the evening was fantastic up to that point. Poor staff!
