Naomi genuinely seemed very nice when she showed us around

- Days before the event, stopped getting responses - Showed up at venue day before as had discussed on tag with Naomi about decorating so were there with bags to decorate as hadn’t heard back and no-one was there - Went back later around midnight as was worried had been scammed and eventually found a bouncer at another venue who was able to put us in touch with owner, but without that would’ve been stuck wondering if the party was able to go ahead - Got an uber to go and meet owner at 6 to decorate on the Saturday but her didn’t get there until after 6:40 so they were just stood outside waiting - The music wasn’t working for ages even until after the guests arrived. Even then, the only reason they could get it to work is because one of the guests happened to have the right adapter that luckily she was willing to leave for the night - Because of getting in late we were still decorating as people arrived which stopped her being able to actually enjoy and there wasn’t even any music downstairs so was just uncomfortable and awkward - Bartenders didn’t know what they were doing so service super slow, didn’t how to make gin and tonic, kept having to order upstairs as the bar downstairs had such little stock and ran out of things through the night - When the bathrooms ran out of toilet paper the bartenders just said oh sorry we don’t have any more and we had to ask them to go and get some as people were in the toilets - Overall just a messy and stressful experience that cost £200 and wasn’t able to enjoy because felt so stressed about sorting everyone out and friends being unhappy

Hired for a private party. Great price for a great location. Sound system is excellent, space is a good size and hooking up our own DJ equipment was very easy. Staff are also very friendly and there's a good drink selection. Highly recommend.
