An American-ish themed rock/biker/leather/fauxdive bar. Service is a bit hit and miss. Food is very yummy. The ladies' toilets were disgusting, however. They were "fixed" part way through the night, but the plumbing work left rather gross things all over the floor. Not cool. That means they only get 3 stars instead of what might have been 4.more

Great rock bar with regular live music and its always packed at the weekends.

I love Big Red (which did actually used to be red, but is now black with red flames)! The music is almost always excellent (rock or some variation of rock) and the drinks are stiff.

You might think, at a glance, it'd be pretentious & 'scene'y, but it just isn't. The tattooed & dreadlocked bartenders are so so friendly, and I just love the decor which includes candles in Jack Daniels bottles,...more
