Blackthorn _ left this review about Mbargo

A trendy bar/music venue on the Triangle, it seems to be one of those places that doesn’t really get going until later in the evening. Driving past late at night I have seen long queues along the pavement to get in, but on a recent Thursday evening visit it was virtually deserted, with bar staff and bouncers outnumbering the punters 2:1.

Presumably it was at one time a number of different shops that have now been knocked through in to one, and is consequently something of a rabbit warren. Decor wise, it is similar throughout though, with a largely wood strip floor along with a few tiles at the rear, purple wood panelling on the lower part of the walls and mustard colour paintwork elsewhere. There were also a couple of black and white murals on the walls as well as a few TV screens dotted around which appeared to be showing mostly advertisements for the venue.

Flashing lights seem to be something of a theme here, and there were numerous examples of these dotted around the ceiling, although the number of security cameras gave them a good run for their money. The coloured lighting extended to the tables which were low plastic pods, illuminated from within, with the colour changing every few seconds. A DJ Booth was in one corner, although this was not in use on our visit.

Unfortunately there were no real ales on tap, just their own Mbargo beer on keg. Ciders fared slightly better with Magners Golden Draught and the rather generic sounding Hereford Cider. This was priced at a very reasonable £2.50 a pint, as it was happy hour – which apparently runs from Sunday to Thursday (!)
