The Joiners Arms may look like a modest pub on the outside, but inside it’s anything but. This iconic 200-capacity venue in Southampton has had many famous acts walk through its doors, and was awarded NME’s Best Small Venue in 2013.
The Joiners Arms has been open as a music venue since 1968, playing host to local and established acts alike. During that time the Joiners has moved from a venue which predominantly catered to the then burgeoning punk scene to one that offers a home to all tastes, and many of the acts that have played there over the years have gone on to become big names. Just a few of the bands gracing the Joiners that went on to become international stars include Arctic Monkeys, Radiohead and Oasis.
Today the Joiners Arms is renowned for its friendly atmosphere and the sheer proximity between performers and the crowd. A key part of Southampton’s local music scene, the Joiners is a must-visit for any music lovers in the city and from further across the south coast.
