This place is a nightmare to get around FOH; locked doors everywhere you turn.

The guest mix position is in a sunken pit and just to make it even harder they block off the sides of it as well! There is a highly complex route under the back, ideal for acrobats and limbo artists. The house mix position is in a room on the circle where it is quite hard to hear anything.
