The Basement is an exposed brick basement with armchairs, wooden tables, and neon for weekly funk and soul club nights. The Basement is a cozy underground venue that hosts a late-night bar and nightclub five days a week. Located underground on Wellington Street, the interior has low ceilings and exposed brickwork, creating a relaxed speakeasy vibe from 10 pm until 2 am (4 am on Tuesdays and Wednesdays) with excellent use of rugs, lamps, candles, cushions, and fairy lights making it an ideal late-night bar spot or private venue to hire. Musically, the Basement’s roots are firmly embedded in funk and soul, both old and new, with slices of disco, indie, and hip hop thrown in for good measure. Whatever night of the week you come down to The Basement, good tunes and great drinks are aplenty.
