  • RIP off door staff. Even if you think you are on the guest list you will still pay full price £12. ‘You didn’t click through’. Save your money and go somewhere nice with staff who care about their cus...  more »
  • They have a limited selection of ID they will acrually take which was dissapointing as I almost didn't get it with a pass accredited ID. The bouncer I spoke to was incredibly kind but the fee to get i...  more »

  • Thank you all for your comments,. I was intending on visiting this venue,. however the feedback reviews are clear, this venue has very poor customer service and treats its customers with aggression and violence. What i would like from you all, is to capture these incidents on camera, if the doormen are that predictable then record them at best. Once this club closes down another company can take over ;)
  • The bouncers were unfriendly at best. After having entered and drunk my second drink of the night, I was talking to my friend sitting on the stairs. They eventually went off to the toilets, and I continued sitting where I was. A bouncer came up to me, grabbed me, and put me in a tight head-lock while I was texting on my phone (I can only assume they thought I was so drunk that I had to sit down on the stairs, despite being sober). He started to drag me down the stairs. I pulled his arm away, not being able to breathe - again, sober. My only guess to what happened next was that my nails had dug into his arms, because supposedly he had told the other bouncers that I had attacked and bitten him on the arm at random. They then beat me up, and continued to when I was out and down the path from the club, leaving me bruised and bleeding on the pavement. Everyone else present said I'd done nothing wrong, questioned the bouncers and disagreed with their responses. In the UK, as a bouncer it is illegal to use physical force against anyone who has not physically threatened anyone else. It is also the law that when you accuse someone as such, that you provide proof. Yet when questioned, even by me continuously, their only excuse was 'my colleague mate said you bit him' - even if it were true, it would be illegal to use more extreme physical force. I unfortunately didn't seek the police, who would've warranted the security tapes and taken action. This is not uncommon. If you look at the Google reviews, Facebook reviews, or anecdotal evidence, it is common. Despite that, it's expense, and often empty. The staff are unfriendly, and people only really give this place good reviews over a lack of options and drunkenness. This is one of the worst clubs, and gay clubs, I've been to.
