  • Visitor Information

Don't come to Plastic People expecting a stylish bar and the latest trendy cocktails. There's nothing fancy about this basement club, but what it does offer is kick ass beats and a killer sound system. This is one of the most musically diverse venues in town, and you'll hear any or all types of jazz, funk, house, latin, electro, afro beats and hip-hop - depending on the night. The musical standards are consistently high but there is nothing pretentious about the place, and the crowd come to get down. Their no-frills clubbing formula has won them a legion of devotees and provides a welcome contrast with the new generation of slick Ditchland bars.
