Firstly, be sure not mistake this venue with The Coroner?s Court in Stokes Croft. Like the other venues in The Island complex, the Old Crown Courts facilitate partying in former public sector building. Club promoters usually position a bar in the majestic, marble-pillared foyer and install sound systems in the two grand courtrooms.
The Crown Courts couldn?t be more different to your typical black-box venue - boasting high ceilings, ornate cornicing and flaking paint. The building remains how it was when the lawyers left with dj?s now presiding from the front benches.
