Great place, however I put in a few requests with tips for songs and they never played the songs, despite saying tips put you to the top of the pile. I was very disappointed as it had a birthday shootout with they never did. But in general the music was great.

What a fantastic afternoon! We attended Playlist Live as a group of 8 ladies to celebrate a birthday at the Mama Mia Brunch. The atmosphere was buzzing from start to finish thanks to the fantastic servers, talented musicians and fun, interactive DJ. If you are looking for flowing drinks, a fun crowd and party vibes this is the place for you!

The overall experience was not particularly enjoyable. A few waitresses and waiters were rude and unhelpful. When we asked how long our food was going to take, we were given an insincere response that as we were one of the last tables to order, we’d have to wait longer. Our food took 40 minutes to arrive, and when it did our orders weren’t right. The chicken was hard and difficult to chew. The extras paid for didn’t arrive and we had to ask about them. It seemed as though it was way too busy in the venue for the amount of staff working and everything just felt it was all over the place. There was only two of us who attended so I can’t imagine how hectic it is for a larger group. We attended a Mamma Mia themed brunch, arriving at 2.30pm (a time slot provided by the venue), the live music set for ABBA ended only 40 minutes into us being there! We paid for a themed brunch and only listened to a few ABBA songs, it was 3pm! Music is way too loud to even communicate with anyone and we had to keep asking the waiters for more drinks. Felt like we didn’t get our £80 worth at all. Drinks were weak, couldn’t taste the alcohol and were served in tiny glasses. There were a few birthdays being celebrated and life events taking place which was lovely for those who were part of this, this made the atmosphere fantastic with lots of dancing and singing. However i think we were both just disappointed that our experience was not very Mamma Mia themed, hardly any ABBA playing and it felt like a standard time at a bar or club. Nothing particularly special about our visit and I wouldn’t recommend. I think to improve in the future the venue needs to work on the structure of the events, delivering food in a timely manner and getting it correct, the quality of customer service and friendliness, and actually keeping to the theme of the brunch for at least the 90 minute duration of the time we had the table, as we booked ABBA for a reason and expected ABBA. Very disappointing, but one positive note we have to mention is the lovely man looking after our table, Nik, who did his best to make our experience as enjoyable as possible and had a very friendly approach - was just a shame that the rest of the experience let us down.
