The Picturehouse is part of the Grade 2 listed building known as Band on the Wall. Previously a cinema, this great bar offers a relaxing place to hang out with friends before or after a gig in the adjacent venue. They offer a simple menu in the Picturehouse Cafe, with starters at £3.50 and mains for £6.50, perfect for a quick bite! Book in advance for meal deals, as they offer two courses for £10 alongside some free tickets to other future concerts. 

Their cocktail menu is small but at two for £10 you can't go wrong! They offer signature recipes such as Muddy Waters, an indulgent blend of milk, cream and fine brandy, plus classics like their whiskey sour and margarita. With the box office close at hand, why not pop in, collect your tickets and stay for a drink or two? The Picturehouse is open till midnight on weekends, but look out for club events as this venue is licensed till later.
