I came here for the first time last week to see Australian comidian Nick Cody. I really liked the venue, which surprised me, as I was expecting some sort of small dive place.

When you walk in, the box office is to the left with really friendly staff. To the right is very large bar area, which for Soho seemed quite spacious ( I would cme here again just to use the bar). The bar itself takes up...more
