    Yeah, teh logo is impressive, but with headline bands like six, you'd wonder if it's going to be Waterfords version of South???

    Getting random so called celebs to open the place dosnt really count as headline bands now does it?

    And from the look of the papers it was more like Three on the night....

    right so what is the best place for a night out in waterford?


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 8,652 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Rew


    Axis Mundi, had some good nights in there... Fish tank will keep ya amused for hours!


  • Moderators, Business & Finance Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 9,764 Mod ✭✭✭✭ ToxicPaddy


    Id have to agree there, Axis Mundi isnt a bad oul spot, only probs are that it gets a little crowded and ya have to be in there early.

    But in saying that, the music's fairly good, there are some absolutely lovely ladies there and plenty of comfy seats when you manage to get chatting to one of the said lovely ladies :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,135 ✭✭✭ bkehoe


    They have a fish tank?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 28,173 ✭✭✭✭ Mossy Monk


    yes they do. the thing had me mesmorised for an hour one night :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,135 ✭✭✭ bkehoe


    Where? Chances are I'll see it right away next time now that I'll be on the lookout. ;)


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 28,173 ✭✭✭✭ Mossy Monk


    i'm not all that familiar with the place but it is straight ahead of you when you walk in the door from the street, in that small bar


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,135 ✭✭✭ bkehoe


    OK, something to keep an eye out for then


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,972 SheroN


    But the curtains are nice.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 745 misswex


    So avoid Oxygen and go to Axix Mudis' is it???

    Oxygen = pants

    Axia Mundi novelty has worn off...

    The Queues are at Rubys

    Preachers aka 'the Barn' opening in March...

    thank god for the Forum on Saturday nights...

    *cough* and Friday nights.

    Haven't been in oxygen yet. I think it's just trying to be trendy, but from what I've heard, it doesn't quite pull it off. Axis Mundy is good for a few drinks with your buddies, plus it's usually free in before midnight. Sheff's nightclub (can't remember the name) is a kip, if it wasn't for the student crowd (some nice talent there) I wouldn't go at all.

    Don't know about "The barn". Haven't been in preachers in literally years. As long as it doesn't turn into a kiddie haunt it should make another option when going out.
