Having limited experience "down south", each experience counts. Hootananny was fun, it's got a very down to earth feel, and space, space, space. Huge outdoor lawn area, spacious inside including dance floor, pool tables etc (although a touch warm!).

I like this place, been to a few gigs, had a few drinks, danced a little, sweated a little more, had a little street food, met a few humans. You know.

It's a very happy, energetic place with different live bands that come and play for the crowds, usually foreign styles of music from the likes of Africa and Latin America. They also have a great big sociable smoking area and jerk chicken, yes JERK CHICKEN for sale just outside. Only downside is the club...more
