No sound limiter
Vinyl or stone floor area for dancing
Some useable in-house lighting effects
No stage area
PARKING: Few on street bays. Otherside of the road is all permits. Could be tricky to get parked here at busy times.
ACCESS: Pretty tough. Down a set of winding external steps (reckon they could get slippy) in through a tight double door way, through a foyer and down more windy internal steps.
FACILITIES: IN the corner or along the wall/cabinet - width available: 4-5m - height clearance: over 4m
STAFF: Very nice and helpful
POWER PROVISION: Plenty of 13A sockets in close proximity to setup area
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: "Only need a small set up here as it is a tiny venue. Power is a bit dubious. They may make you run everything from 2 or 3 sockets on the one multi block!"
