    5 Booked Backroom for Gig event for 75 guests

    Great set up for a night of live music. The two rooms give guests the option of hanging out in the quiet bar or being in the room with the bands. Sound quality was great for a small venue. Excellent communication from the venue throughout process of organising the event, also accommodating special requests etc.

    Nothing.

    5 Booked Backroom for Product Launch event for 53 guests

    The staff was super chilled and lovely to us throughout the whole afternoon. They were very flexible with the minimum spend as well and allowed us some more time to reach it and by the end of our time there we'd spent well over the agreed sum. Funky cool place, everything worked, good easy to use sound and projector and lots of chairs available.

    Nothing!
