All welcome, regardless of age, nationality, mobility, gender or sexuality. Regulars & first timers getting down together… mixed up music for a lovely mix of people!

Aroop Roy is a producer, musician and label head, who joins the dots between electronic music and borderless organic sounds. From house, garage and techno to jazz, disco and global rhythms, he has enjoyed universal acclaim as a producer and DJ across scenes and generations,

Like his productions, his sets are full of personality and style and have earned him a reputation as a uniquely gifted DJ.

Aroop’s label Vive La Musique has focussed on quality over quantity, with reissues and reworks of rare eclectic sounds from around the world from Caribbean zouk and Congolese Rumba to French jazz-fusion and South African soul.

Please don’t use phones on either dancefloor. We ask this because we want the dancefloor to be a place where everyone can be in the moment. If you’re tweeting, texting, bidding for a pair of socks on eBay or taking a picture of your friends, you’re not only out of the moment, you also might be making it hard for someone else to be in the moment. The bar areas or balcony is a much better place for this.


Be nice to everyone. Tip the lovely bar staff. Say excuse me if you bump into someone.
Respect other people’s space. If you’re made to feel uncomfortable, or if you see anyone behaving inappropriately let one of our staff know, and we will sort it. We will not stand for inappropriate behaviour of any kind. If you witness or are subjected to sexual harassment, intimidation, unwanted invasion of your personal space or any other form of disrespect, let a member of staff know and we will deal with the situation in a way that makes you feel comfortable – we’re prepared to do anything from have a quiet word to contacting the police.


Tickets are usually taken off sale at 4pm on the day of the event, so even if it looks sold out online there may be places on the door. Please come down early if you don’t have a ticket.
