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

It's not really a super safe space for lgbt+ people because so many cisgender heterosexual people go there. There are multiple other clubs in Exeter, and a lot of which are nicer than Vaults (Unit 1 for example, or if you hate students, EX4), so...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!

My partner and I decided to head here on a Saturday night in early August. The venue itself was fantastic. The music was great and the drinks relatively cheap... Our only problem were the one or two over zealous customers who wouldn't leave us alone....More
