This alternative/rock club in Bevois Valley is the hiding place for those who like their music loud, fast and bone crushingly heavy. Narrow steps lead down to confined, underground surroundings, with a low ceiling and hand painted walls. Black T-shirts are compulsory for the long haired lads, leather and fishnets for the vampire girls. The young crowd respond enthusiastically to new bands like Slipknot, but sit back down, bored, when relatively old hands like Metallica are aired. If it all gets too heavy, there is a garden to cool down in.
This friendly, busy nightclub will give you an enjoyable night out without making too much of a dent in your wallet. Recently refurbished and revamped, it is especially popular amongst students thanks to its reasonable drinks prices and lively atmosphere, with week nights proving just as popular as weekend dates.

A narrow corridor leads through to The Box, a small, dimly lit extension to The Edge. Here the atmosphere is clubbier and the music harder, in a house and garage vein. No admission on most nights.
