Down Under, Peter Street

Down Under was an Australian themed cellar bar, just off Peter Street, and was very popular in its day.  Free to get in but with a late licence, it was popular with many later in the evening after the pubs had shut.  It had a disco on a Friday and Saturday which attracted a younger crowd, and indeed, the place itself was kitted out a bit like you would remember your local youth club to be.  Despite its popularity it eventually closed and was replaced by a club, Soft, then Doop, and a wine bar/club, Baby Grand.  This too is now closed.
