The Armchair

Event information

In 1998, The Armchair Theatre opened its bohemian doors to lovers of all genres of music. Situated in the heart of the Observatory, it holds a long-standing stage that all musicians respect and love to perform on. This stage is also shared with other live entertainment acts, such as comedians, film festivals, plays and exhibitions.

Every week, The Armchair presents a variety of performers. From beginners wanting an opportunity to play with other musicians during the week, to professional bands gracing the stage on weekends. The Armchair delivers in surplus.

Some of us love music more than others. And, instead of being limited to watching other bands, some might like to partake. For such individuals, the Jam Nights are recommended, which are held every Monday from 8pm, or the Karaoke Nights, on Thursdays, also from 8pm.

Apart from the professional bands you can watch on weekends, you can find yourself proving your wits at the Tuesday quiz nights or bellowing laughter from your belly at the Wednesday Stand-Up comedy nights.

Time: Mon – Thu 11am – 1 am | Fri 11am – 11.30pm | Sat – Sun 9am – 11.30pm
