Sound Garden  



 
 
Not much has changed in Sound Garden since it opened in the early 90s. Kurt Cobain lookalikes converse shyly in corners of the room, old rockers play pool or pinball, and a few suits – who probably had mohicans and listened to Bad Brains back in the day – sit on the terrace at the backside of the bar. Sound Garden is surprisingly friendly, and you'll inevitably find yourself in conversation with muso strangers at some point – probably talking about the best places to find Mudhoney B-sides or Jesus and Mary Chain T-Shirts.

Really fun bar, friendly staff and event beer garden on the river. Under no circumstances should you go to the toilet alone.
