audience rating: 3 stars from 4 votes - click to vote

Situated above the popular bar Switch, The Loft is a dance music heaven, playing everything from house to dubstep. The decor is reminiscent of a New York loft party (which may go someway in explaining the name of the bar).

Despite its music policy, The Loft closes relatively early in comparison to other clubs in the area. It is, however, free entry all night and offers a space to dance.
