We want all of our Southside visitors to have a safe and pleasurable experience here. We want you to relax, listen to music, enjoy time with friends, meet nice people and feel part of our community without fear of harassment. 

We take a zero tolerance approach to behaviour that is intimidating or humiliating and you will not be welcome at the venue if you behave in this way.

We want to assure you that our team is fully trained and dedicated to ensure our customers feel safe at all times. Please talk to us about any concerns you have during your visit.
