The Thirsty Scholar
The Thirsty Scholar is 229’s private member’s bar, located on the ground floor above the venue. If you are attending a 229 show, by simply showing your gig/event ticket, you can gain access to this bar prior to, or after a show. Drinks are reasonably priced and cheaper than our local competitors and we also offer a comprehensive food menu which includes freshly baked pizzas, burgers, salads and many sides and sharing options. We also serve organic, artisan coffee and specialist teas and juices. We have a large screen and show all big football and sporting events and we are open all day, every day.
In exceptional circumstances, when Venue 1 or Venue 2 are unavailable, you can hire this bar exclusively or non-exclusively. It has a 220 capacity and is ideal for Birthday celebrations, club nights or corporate functions.
