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.

Thurs 26th Feb
Close The Curtains, with JP Cooper and support from Cara Mitchell
8.30 till 11pm, free
This week Close the Curtains is brought to you by JP Cooper and Cara Mitchell. JP's voice is beautifully soulful, with some fine finger picking guitar intertwined. He looks like Henrik Larsson, but sounds like Stevie Wonder. Sold!
Supporting JP is rising star Cara Mitchell from Aberdeen. She is making quite the name for herself and very much fits with JPs own style, as they tour the highlands.
This show speaks to everything our Close The Curtains nights aim to be. Introspective, soulful, melodic, touching music. We'll kick off at 8.30pm in the bar and it's free. Hope to see you down here by the fire.
Saturday 28th Feb, 9.30 till 1am

Sunday 15th March
Fat Suit (jazz/fusion)
If there was a day of the week that god created Jazz, it would surely be Sunday. We know he was supposedly resting then, after a fair shift earlier in the week, but we have it on good authority he rested by playing jazz. That's why we've taken this previous Saturday night performer and slotted them into the Sunday night. They'll be playing in the restaurant area, it will be seated, it will be very good. Hope you can make it.
"It’s impressive stuff... a hefty groove running throughout almost the entire evening; a nucleus around which all the instruments on the display, from 21st century electronics to wood to brass, can spin with abandon." $ stars. The Herald
