Academys are not normally my favourite places/gig venues but this gets a special mention for super-friendly bouncers. yes, that’s right – friendly bouncers!
Oh, and inside’s pretty decent too with loads of fun, different club nights on (i.e. headphone disco, rock karaoke) as well as gigs. Sound is pretty good and you can easily get a good view of the stage and normally doesn’t take too long to get served.
