Booked last minute tickets online as an alternative to the postponed Pink concert. It's a small little intimate club, our 8:30pm show was sold out so we were glad we got there early or would have had to sit in the front row. Great show,...More

Went to see headline act Ron Joson, who was very funny. Had a a superb compere and supporting acts. Small intimate venue, you will be engaged with, so no shy types! Traditional stand-up, but quite risque. Great night, only gripe - no rosé!

Wish we had known in advance we could get good eats, but the COmedy was great and the service good too. Young Harrison was a pleasant surprise of the evening, while Casey Corbin had us laughing out loud. Great venue, great fun.

We were able to catch a couple of great acts at this venue. The service was friendly and it was a really great evening.

Very entertaining show in a cute part of town with lots of character... we attended an open mic night, which was very well done. It's a very intimate venue with lots of audience interaction - don't sit too close to the front if you don't...More
