The Upside Down

Inspired by the already cult classic ‘Stranger Things‘.
The Upside Down, Halloween special at MSA.
Saturday 29th October.

80’s Playlist.
with Jay Rockwell ++

We wanted to pay tribute not only to the TV series of the year but the 80’s genre as a whole.
From classic scary movies to a soundtrack that will prove to be the party of the city.
By transforming our basement into the upside down we encourage everyone to don their best horror attire, bring a torch, and join us in our journey into the Upside Down.



Space Dimension Controller

Following the success of our Second birthday party last summer with Mike Skinner & Murkage we eagerly anticipated the booking of our third birthday guest. We immediately set off in search of SPACE DIMENSION CONTROLLER and his “stratospheric take on alienated future funk and sci-fi-hi-fi boogie-infused techno”. Put simply we were in search of a talent out of this world. It was essential that whoever we booked would have to bring the party, therefore having our own Steven Dunn + friends simply sealed the deal.

Signature Shake-up

With spring summer looming the team wanted to pull together a special selection of cocktails to bridge the gap to warmer days. Remixing and remastering old favourites with the accompaniment of some experimental flavours we’re pleased to present a new range of signatures on the cocktail menu. Boasting 241 before 10pm every night. No excuse not to try a few.

Year Of The Monkey

2015 was incredible in and out of the venue. From lending our cocktails to Shindig Events and their ByDayByNight Festival, our pop up bar at Hoults Yard, to hosting Mike Skinner & Murkage present TONGA. Another amazing year for OFF THE RECORD, the return of REIGN, and the continued march of our Saturday night soiree. To all the birthdays, celebrations, spontaneous nights out, and the occasional ‘mad one’. We already excited about what 2016 will bring… the year of the Monkey.

Blinded By The Lights

In the not too distant past our basement venue lay host to a special guest performance to celebrate our second birthday.  It’s not often you meet your idols never mind giving them centre stage in our intimate music venue. Original Pirate Material is more than an album, it somehow bottled the mindset of a generation and the sound of a decade. To have Mike Skinner present Tonga along with our old friends Murkage was an exceptional treat and an incredible night. A special thanks for Kopparberg, UGOT, and Easy Beers for supporting the event and making it possible. A huge nod to Jonny Wilson who captured some incredible photography and film.
