Having to miss out the Lansdowne because it was just far too packed, we ended up wandering past Off Broadway, almost literally. It's just a little too much like an RSL for our tastes, and was dead quiet. The three pool tables seem to form a focal point for the room, and on our visit were the only part of the bar where anything was actually happening. Mostly youngsters crowded around the tables. The soundtack is most definitely R&B, which jangled my nerves just a little too much, and they obviously have or had a problem with underage kids trying to get served alcohol - a group of kids coming in after us were intercepted and asked for identification almost before they got in. It seems the target market is young, but is having to be policed for being TOO young. Karaoke, a club night - it's a young slave-to-fashion scene. The TAB looked positively out of place!

The Manger admitted that they run the bar just to keep the pokies going! I agree that its a bit souless, but it does have live bands (on Friday nights if I remember correctly) so you have cut it some slack for giving some young talent a chance!

Don't waste your money buying from the bistro here. I ordered a steak, could hardly eat it - was full of grissle and tasted like soaked cardboard.

I think regardless of what the pub looks like it does a lot for young original music. The bands that play there are of such a high quality, people should get their act together and go there to see them. Maybe it is not known to be the best music venue but once you see the talent that is there, you will be back for more....guaranteed!!!!!

Lots of live music, some of it very good. Doesn't have the "old pub" feel but worth it if you like live bands and pool tables with room to move.
