Upstairs at Arden Road (The Archway Project)

Well our move to try Bar Up for a few gigs has come to an early end. Nothing against Neil, we are sure the teething problems would have been overcome but our decision has come about because an opportunity that we have been given is too good not to go with.

So, we are pleased to announce that whilst we will continue to use the main room at Arden, we will now use the intimate upstairs space run by the Archway Project. Previously we have used it for gigs by Tiny Ruins, Hafdis Huld and others. It has it's own bar but we are also in negotiations to get access to the lounge in the main club. If you've not been upstairs then I'm sure you'll like.

The capacity is small and should lend itself to a great atmosphere.

Thanks to Neil at Cookies for the help he gave us in our short stay.
