Been here twice now. Nicely decorated. Cool vibe. Intimate setup whereby it doesn't really matter where you sit, you have a decent view. Parking close by is plentiful and in many cases free. Now I imagine it's not an easy gig making money out of an investment like this place, what with jazz not really pulling big crowds. The upshot being that drink and food prices are a little pricey. Sound and acoustics are nice, there's projectors either side of the stage and a control booth at the back of the room controlling remote cameras that provide both wide angle and close up shots of the band. So overall a great combo. However for me the pricing and the fact that jazz is such a specific and eclectic genre, I doubt whether I will return.
I attended the Badloves show here whilst visiting my friend in Melbourne. The show was fantastic and venue was easily among the best I have ever seen. Sound production was very good and the video screens were a very nice touch. Top class!
