Varied on good nights in this place, not big but well thought out. only downer if loose friends cnt phone due to underground! Stairs into club pain in heels!
A bit expensive, especially fron Friday's and Saturday's, and small compared to other clubs.
Drinks are about average pricing, so there's nothing too bad here, but I've seen cheaper in other local areas.
Mayhem also has a reputation for being a bit of a rough area, and when the drunken idiots come flooding out they do ruin the atmosphere of the town centre and will generally yell their heads off, something which the clubs are responsible for preventing, which is what drives my rating for this place right down.
As for guest DJ's and the like, they hardly ever get anyone who's hot in the current scene, and usually tend to just get washed-up nobody's that no-one's ever heard of.
If you are in your twenties then you will love it.
The bar can get full and drunks can spoil the evening if the doormen dont spot it in time.
Tuck in but watch your bag / drink / back. Youve been warned.
Always can guarantee a good night out here, music is usually pretty ace & on Mondays its student night so cheap drinks. (: Happy with my £2 cider & blackcurrant. Also love that it has 2 rooms now. Mainly aimed for 18-25s.
Always have a great night here and they have alot of hot celebrity guests and performers on a regular basis. Monday nights are cheap student nights as all drinks apart from champagne and cocktails are £2 and they offer great rock tracks til 2am! Thursday nights aren't what they used to be with Friday and Saturday nights making up for it but at your expense as it can cost upto £7 to get in on a Saturday and drinks are around £3.50! Attraction to local football team Southend United and you can generally always find a past or present player in there! Never had a bad night out!
Never had a decent night in this place. Find it cramped and full of tarts and posers. Takes far too long to get a drink, gets far too cramped and just has a generally awful ambience. Cannot relax, you have people thinking they're 'hard' and 'giving it' albeit you do see that everywhere, just so happens to occur more regularly here. Plus the doorman are possibly the worst I've seen. Stopping people coming in for no reason what so ever and far too many underagers let in. Most over rated place in Southend.
