midweek, we CLOSE THE CURTAINS
outside of the weekends, we close the curtains and dim the lights, for a series of intimate, candle-lit gigs in our conservatory. A limited number of tables are available for dinner during these shows (unless otherwise stated), for which booking is strongly recommended. Doors at 8.30pm, show starting at 9pm.
weekends mean LATE NIGHT LIVE
Late Night Live comes at the weekends, where the music gets a bit louder, the drinks flow a bit faster and things go on a bit later. A band plus DJ continues to be the format of these nights, often with one of the band themselves spinning for the night, offering an insight into the musical influences that go into the bands own sets, but more importantly keeping you dancing either side of the band being on stage. Entry to all Late Night Live gigs remains free, with things kicking off about 10pm.

The Banjo Lounge 4. Last Hogmanay's entertainers return for hit after hit of banjo and double bass fuelled covers.
Saturday 13th December - OBI IS 5 YEARS OLD (part 1)
Wow! Seems at times like 5 minutes and at others like 50 years, but the clock doesn't lie and this will indeed be our 5th birthday party. Being lucky enough to enjoy regulars from all walks of life, all musical tastes and a multitude of generations, we're doing a double header birthday celebration, with DJs galore on the Friday night, including resident OC & special guest Pro Vinylist Karim. This will be a restaurant clear out job, with dinner being served in the bar and dancing served up in the restaurant.
Sunday 14th December - OBI IS 5 YEARS OLD (part 2) - SHOOGLENIFTY LIVE! - £15 in advance, standing. 8.30pm
Tickets are now on sale as we welcome this legendary 6 piece for a special appearance. We'll be keeping things in the restaurant area, as it does lend itself more to the dancefloor, which will suit Shooglenifty down to the ground. Formed in Edinburgh, Scotland, Shooglenifty began life with a residency at the La Belle Angele pub and quickly drew a strong fanbase for their energised, contemporary roots material which soon became one of Scotland's most unique musical exports. This six-man band is credited being the originators of 'acid-croft', a fiery and infectious blend of Celtic traditional music and dance grooves that band members describe as "hypno-folkadelic ambient trad." A supremely dexterous and witty live band, their energetic live performances have kept them in constant demand around the world.
