    I had naff-all mobile reception here on Vodafone. The guy next to me, on O2 had a full 4G signal. Favouritism....

    Expensive drinks, crappy draft beer. Awful phone reception. Seems to be one way in and the same way out after gigs, bit of a crush heading out afterwards.

    £4.60 a pint. Missed the 1st band due to massive queue. Sweaty as dicks. Clueless staff. 40 mins to get coat in AND out of cloakroom. :S

    A top live venue in the centre of Brum, though food & drink prices are high. Top up at a good local pub first.

    Happy they serve Guinness but the crap bartender served ot with an inch and a half of foam! See which bartender pours it right and make sure you order from them.

    £2.90 for a lemonade? For that I expect real lemonade, lemons and a serving wench,

    Utterly shit venue on so many levels but some great bands play here. The Academy 2 and 3 aren't bad.

    Be careful of Showsec security. They are useless!

    Doesn't hold a candle to the Dale End version. Same playlist EVERY week and, from what I hear, has been invaded by chavlings.

    If you're on the carpet, dont stand still for too long or your feet will stick :S also watch out for the men who argued about who peed in the cup lol

    Pre-drink before you arrive, beer is £4.15 a pint.

    Go to a gig on Friday and get free entry to Propaganda afterwards!

    Pint of carlsberg, 4 quid. Could buy a small bottle of vodka or whisky for that and get pissed quicker

    Are you are a fan of bands like "The Strokes" or "Primal Scream"? Then the best rock and pop venue in town is the place for you.

    Don't stand still for too long, you will stick to the floor

    No place to leave jackets and coats

    As predicted by Stuart-pint of Tuborg is now £4.20...

    Mike Hyde · February 6, 2011
  • Simon C.

    Crap view downstairs. No better than the old Academy then.

    Simon C · December 14, 2010
  • Stuart D.

    Be warned: a pint of Tuborg on a gig night is £4.05 - though no doubt will have gone up by the time you read this.

  • Volcom Entertainment

    Don't miss the Riverboat Gamblers, Sum 41, The Black Pacific and Veara here on 11/2!

    Hide your chewing gum, security on the door think it's a lethal weapon :)

    Propaganda on a Friday night. Cheap drinks, great music!

    Simon Hughes · May 21, 2010
  • Helen C.

    Bottled water costs £2.40 so ask for tap!

    Great 02 phone reception, dreadful on Orange. Coincidence? Doubt it.

    Best place to park is on Essex Street or Bromsgrove Street on the opposite side of Bristol St. Free after 6pm.
