About

Welcome to Open Ground - committed to originality, independence and expanding horizons. 

Whoever you are, whatever your background - we invite you to join us with an open mind and share a great experience of sound-system music in an inclusive, respectful club environment.

We strive to create a space where you can be yourself, enjoy the night and look after each other. 
We do not tolerate racism, sexism or any other form of discrimination.

At the Door

When you enter the club our team will welcome you and lay out some of our policies. Bags and pockets will be checked for non-allowed items.

We reserve the right to refuse access in case of drunk, aggressive or otherwise inappropriate behavior including wearing or displaying discriminating or offensive symbols.

You must be 18 or older.

Inside

If anything makes you feel uncomfortable during your stay, please speak to the nearest staff member. They can call someone to help.

Please respect our strict no-photos policy. Cameras will be stickered. The club is an intimate environment - we want your privacy and that of others to be protected.

GSM reception is poor.

Also, please respect the smoking ban - seriously.
There is a convenient smoking area in the courtyard.
