This bar is completely overrated, its got a cool name but thats about it for me. I was in the other week and it was absolutely crammed,i could not even move around properly never mind dance which makes the whole experience totally unenjoyable they definately should not be charging a £5 entry fee,they make plenty of money on drinks as it is,this is total greed.

I was just wondering after reading the comments below am a regular to this bar atm and i know it serves food, but are we talking just snacks late at night or wht lol because the qeues in the takeaways are ridiculous after midnight.

apart from the ridiculous admission fee and all the chavs (was more before passion opened up) i think its great one can order a sandwich after 2am! im trying to think of something else nice to say about the place...but i cant,sorry.

Well fact is... I was in there and im not wrong about it being full of charvers and edgy groups, espically late on and on the terrace. This site is here to express your opinions and comments and thats how I feel from being in the place a few times over the last few months... As for the DJ's...how many times are people gonna hear Hideaway or Show Me Love....

You got facts to back up your claims? The Glass Spider have one of the best door teams in Sunderland. You say this place is full of charvers then your wrong. Everytime I have been in it's a decent crowd. Sunday was a little different after the match and had a mix, but the door team were stopping people with footy shirts after 8pm. As for the terrace, there were some really good DJS working the daytime and everyone really enjoyed it

Why is it every time that I come into this place, its full of charvers and people with their necks out... always a really tense atmosphere. I know last Sunday was a match celebration but come on...Do the doorstaff actually look at the people who walk in here. Plus, although it was decent having a setup on the terrace, Im sure the DJ just stuck on a Now Dance 95 cd on after the match... same old tired tunes

Tony, this whole site is garbage, its full of managers of bars and self premoting lame ass Dj's wanting to get get there name about. I suspect there is very few actual punters vistiting this site to check out and comment on sunderlands nightlife. Its so lame. lets see if this gets posted. The truth hurts!

was in there tonight (monday) and i must say the dj was a bit of a unco-operative chappie! i asked for a couple of songs to be told off in a gruff tone that it was commercial (which i thought my songs WERE) and then turned his back on me,,, obviously thought himself to be too serious for the likes of us out of towners who are used to a little more repect! anyhow....apart from the (funny) dj and the flipping albanian following my mate we had a fab time... music was very non-descript but at least we got munchies at 3am without having to leave! that in itself is to be commended!
