The clue's in the name at this compact club in the basement of the old Unity Street building

Tucked away just below the chain bar Armageddon of Park Street, wedged between a couple of gay bars and across the road from the O2 Academy, this subterranean bastion of beats is one of the only places to hear decent dance music this side of town. 

B45 suffered from a saturation of dark drum ’n’ bass nights in its early years, but, these days, the music policy is notably broader. While quality D&B nights are still the venue’s bread and butter, you’re now just as likely to hear bashment, deep house or UKG blasting out in its compact main room as you are 170bpm breaks and bass.

There’s a large bar and seating area as you enter the club, which is essential in a venue where the main room is a single access, low-ceilinged, dimly lit space that offers little opportunity to do anything but dance – or nod your head, if that’s more your thing.

Love Basement45. Great music, friendly staff, always a great night out.  Awesome location so easy to get buses and taxis to and from there. Heaps of pubs nearby to have a few pre-drinks  to get the night started.  Couldn't rate it enough.
