Vaults is always the best night out in Exeter. Perfect for everyone, an inclusive and safe environment where you always feel welcome! Great drink deals and lovely friendly management, bar and door staff

Whenever I go on a night out, Vaults is usually the place of choice and for good reason! Not only is it Exeter's only LGBT+ club/bar, its staff are friendly and the music is good! I've been going to Vaults for a few years now,...More

As a nightclub it is a place to avoid. Lots of steps to get in and out. Is a very stuffy bar and the people who attend this venue are always in their clicks. Good luck trying to meet someone new unless they are drunk!
