Had a great party here for my 40th. The venue is great. I love the way they have the outside terrace (in the basement room) and its really relaxed, almost like a house party. The staff are fabulous and the drinks are really fairly priced. Had a really memorable time, thanks Lock 91!! katelwills visited Lock 91 on 30 Apr 2016

Went to Lock 91 for the first time and it was a really good venue. The staff are absolutely lovely and is definitely a place that I would go again. Not what I expected it to be, but in a very positive way!
