good venue to see a band ?
my favourite ever venue
expensive but good bar
Expensive bar, quite a lot of wankers around but otherwise it is ok
Only expensive if you are new to London and are surprised at spending over £3 for a pint of alchoholic beverage.
Only full of wankers if you are new to London or have never seen anyone under 25 before.
it was phat
got tix to see Spoon there. now just need to badger someone else to go..
it's my favourite, I love it.
my favourite venue too.
when it comes to gigs. My other favourite is The Luminaire and that's neither grand or scuzzy either. I like somewhere comfortable, easy to see and with good sound.
good size, good sound, relaxed yet involved sort of feel, incredibly comfortable sofas next door for before the bands, and that Okkervil River gig there last year? Incredible.
the capacity btw ?
isnt the barfly liek 400?
and its a lot bigger than that
I've had some massive party nights there and some more subdued occasions. It's a good room, the back room is.
to see the wrong bands there. always found it very frustrating. it's an attractive place and the bar is nice but as a music venue it lacked atmosphere, the bar staff clattering away at the back severely got in the way of the music, people talked and talked through the bands, and it was difficult to get a decent view.
the bands i've seen there have mostly not been 'party party' types though, and perhaps if they were i'd have had a better time.
