I love this venue, perfect for intimate gigs. Saw Wilkinson Supercharged on this occasion. Good parking options and close walks for hotels and the beach.

Seen a few bands here this last year and I do love the fact it's a small intimate venue. The bar staff work their butts off. They do seem to over fill the place though. Each time I've been to see people not that well...More
