In July 2001 Soul Underground quietly began its adventures in a small cellar Bar of a large Hotel located just off the M6 motorway network in Walsall in the West Midlands.
"The Wharf "Bar was an intimate and atmospheric underground bar with a wonderful 'Cavern' like ambience and wall to wall dance floor which lent itself perfectly to the music showcased. It became home -for several years -to our Monthly (sometimes twice monthly) events and attracted travellers from all over the UK and beyond. The vibe created there was like no other and we had some of the best parties ever in that little cellar bar.
November 29th sees us returning to our first home and needless to say its going to be not just very special but quite emotional too, anyone who knows me will know my love for that venue and I simply cant wait to go back there. The bar is now called Basement Jacks and the Hotel is called The Metro Hotel in Walsall, the Hotel Rooms are extremely reasonable - between £40 and £50 for Doubles/Twins and you can book now by ringing 01922 722921 and telling the staff that you are attending Soul Underground.
It's set to be a great reunion for many of us and hopefully a great first impression for those new to the venue. We look forward to welcoming you down those famous cellar stairs and having a brilliant launch party.
