Adventure Club

Electro

This Canadian electronic duo have no qualms about getting their hands glittery with a bit of brash, clubby EDM, plus the odd whispery, euphoric breakdown. It's an acquired taste, but they've picked up huge numbers of fans across the pond.

Caribou

Electronica, Alternative rock

  • Critics' choice

It’s fair to say that musicians aren’t always reliable. Dan Snaith, however, has well and truly bucked that trend with his Caribou project, consistently producing lush, psychedelic rock and electronic alt pop that always sounds inviting and fresh. On...

Indie rock

  • Critics' choice

Ignore the silly name: this tipped Welsh indie rock foursome are actually pretty good, packing big riffs, fuzzy bass and emotive vocals into a sound that makes them come across like a cleaner Biffy Clyro. Read moreWhat's the deal with… Catfish And The...

PS

A good venue for gigs but not so much for club nights.

Eleanor

I saw The Band Perry at the Koko club and it was a lovely venue, it is an old theatre with all the seating taken out in the stalls (I didnt see upstairs) and has a full bar at the back. The acoustics were very good, as were the Band Perry! Would recommend! I would like to go to one of their guilty pleasures nights and club nights soon!

Jimmytwigg

I agree. Not the most welcoming of places. As for the refit?? I used to go there in the mid 90's and I could not tell what they had changed since then?... Sticky carpets, awful toilets and grumpy staff. Regretfully, best avoided.

Dazbert

I don't get the idea here. It's a lovely building with an interesting layout, but they treat their customers like cattle. They charge insane prices for a can of appalling bitter emptied lovelessly into a thin plastic glass. Queues 10-deep at the bar. Events where the comperes verbally abuse people for needing the toilet while they're speaking (and I mean abuse, not joke about, Patrick Kielty). It's bad enough that you start to think, 'Well if you really don't want me here I'll leave.' You're just a commodity, being fleeced for as much as they can get away with. It's a shame, as it has so much potential. But it's top of my blacklist nowadays.
