While its not the biggest venue on the south coast, there is a good chance it’s the best. Many rising stars have played here prior to their big break, so you never know who you may end up seeing!

The Joiners Arms is a Public House and small music venue at 141 St Mary’s Street, St Mary’s, Southampton, England. It has played host to many up-and-coming bands such as Oasis and Coldplay. There are gigs most nights of the week by national acts and local bands. The venue is currently owned by Patrick Muldowney, who also plays a vital role as the doorman. He part owns the venue with Glen Lovell. Bands such as Arctic Monkeys during interviews with NME have often mentioned the Joiners, describing it as “a place where you have to play to get started.” Friendly Fires stated that “without the Joiners Arms and other venues like that around the UK, we would not be where we are, and for that we are so grateful.” It runs shows from a wide range of genres including rock, metal, indie, dance, drum and bass and hip-hop.

The team that runs The Joiners also runs an alternative nightclub Unit off Clovely Road in Southampton. Their website provides information on both these venues and other alternative venues in Southampton and Bournemouth.

The Joiners opened its doors as a music venue in 1968. It is home to many Southampton-based bands, and various acts signed and unsigned to recording companies have played there.
