About this space

Downstairs @ the Albany is a hidden gem, part of the pub but also a venue in its own right with private entrance, bar and toilets.

Over the years, it has played host to a litany of comedians and artists, and was the location of the first ever residency for the Chemical Brothers (The Dust Brothers) with the Heavenly Sunday Social.

This is a perfect space for daytime or evening Corporate Business events or celebration. We can offer boardroom seating, theater style or even seating in different areas for break out groups or similar.

Whether you are looking to host a Corporate Function or party the night away we can help with all your needs. The space holds 100 guests standing or 75 if you are using the stage area. We have a private entrance available on request and separate toilets. The space includes a fully stocked private bar so you have everything you need to have a perfect night with us.

Full PA system set up and AV equipment to cater to every need.

Had a leaving party for 60 people this weekend and the venue was perfect. Excellent communication with the staff leading up to the event and on the day. Great value for money. Would highly recommend this venue for any private party.

Great venue with friendly and helpful staff! Good audio visual facilities (speaker system and projector) and lighting. Well separated from rest of the pub with its own WCs so great for hosting a private party. Was able to order food from the pub (although venue offers discrete catering options). Reasonable minimum spend limit too.
