About Blackmarket VIP

You’ll find Blackmarket VIP on the south side of George Street towards the eastern end of the road. It’s upstairs through a big set of double doors, and once inside you’ll realise you’ve found a ‘proper’ little venue.

The stage isn’t huge, but it’s the right size for the space, and there’s an increasingly good roll-call of bands treading the boards to growing audiences.

This is definitely a venue to keep your eye on if you are a keen gig-goer, as you’re highly likely to be in for a treat.
