LISTINGS

We are extremely delighted to announce that the venue is able to open on the 1st of July.

As this is a new venue there are a few things that will be ran differently. As you will see in the listings bellow we will be offering advanced tickets every day for certain shows.

Please visit our TICKETS page in order to buy tickets for our opening week of programming.

We will still guarantee that there will always be limited tickets on the door, but the advanced tickets will be the only way to receive a discounted price (instead of student or jazz bar card discount). We will also be offering a limited amount of free “hardship” tickets per week for those who cannot afford to attend live music, please email and enquire if appropriate.

For our ticketed shows, especially those featuring quieter and more intimate jazz performances, we kindly ask that patrons keep talking to a quiet, respectful level so everyone can engage with the music and enjoy the gig. Please also remember that the venue is still only accessible by stairs and is only semi seated, and there is no guarantee of a seat.

We look forward to seeing you in our venue once again and thank you all for the hundreds of messages of support.
