The following information will be useful to DJs, entertainers and other service providers who have been hired to work at Black Swan Bar & Venue.

  • Function Room

    This review provided by a former site member.

    Function Room is located on the Basement floor.

    Parking:Access:Staff:
    Permanent wooden dancefloor
    No sound limiter
    PAT requested
    No air conditioning
    Haze/smoke prohibited

    PARKING: No on-site parking. There is street parking limited to 1 hour before 18:30

    ACCESS: Whilst there is a loading bay outside the venue, loading equipment is a nightmare. From the street large wooden doors lead into an enclosed compound. The venue is underneath the Arts Centre. Lift or stairs - your choice - but neither is easy.

    STAFF: Great staff - very friendly and helpful

  • The Cellar

    This review provided by Disco Dynamite on 29/02/2016

    The Cellar is located on the Ground floor.

    Access:Staff:
    Low permanent stage
    Decent house lighting rig available
    No sound limiter
    Air conditioned
    No windows
    Carpeted dancing area
    Haze/smoke prohibited

    PARKING: Awful. There is a small loading bay outside of the front courtyard. Stop here and put a loading notice in the van. Once loaded move to a city centre car park. No public parking on site at all.

    ACCESS: Being a city centre venue the odds are stacked against mobile entertainers. From the loading bay carry the gear through a courtyard to the fire doors. Then down a steep and spiral internal stone staircase into The Cellar. Its a LONG walk.

    STAFF: Very friendly and helpful. Head barman was very apologetic about the awful loading route but there was nothing he could really do. Staff were great.

    COMMENTS: This is a nice venue once youre into it with all of the kit. The staff and bouncers are very friendly but loading in / out is a chore and a half. Not a one man job - to be fair, three or four roadies are needed for a quick efficient load in. Midnight music off policy with building cleared down by 00:30. The Cellar holds around 50 - 60 guests.
