    I came her to see blue and it's an amazing venue, a lot bigger than you think, cloak room staff are super quick and it has a really nice bar to chill out in before or after the performance starts
  • Very Good Service
    One of our favorite music venue in London, great acoustics, intimate atmosphere and a place where you can actually see the act without having to rely on video screens.

    Acoustics are not the best in this round house (heh heh) and more troublesome for quiet acts, but expect great atmosphere in a spectacular venue. It's plain lovely. The Kills were just amazing.

    I am yet to find a venue with better sound. The view isn't the best when you're standing at the back, but the sound quality is amazing. Great acoustics!

    This concert hall was originally a turntable for train cars. It is now a beautiful example of how to repurpose industrial spaces and preserve history. The venue may outshine some of the artist inside.

    The venue is beautiful, a lot of history to it and feels very intimate. If you get the right band here, you're in for a treat. A gem of a venue.
  • Magnus B.
    Cool, round venue with a bit of gothic touch with pillars in a circle at the main stage. Great view even from the bar areas in the back.
  • Henry Herrera | Events & Volunteer Coordinator
    The amazing Fuerzabruta is back. Drums, aerialists, strobe lights, water, and dance. I'm going to the 10pm show tonight, but it would be great to meet up in the bar at around 8:30pm. Tickets £32.50 Read more

    When there's a big crowd for a gig and you're stuck at the back, walk all the way around to the right and cut across. Easy to get close to the front!

    Great venue to get close to a band. The rest feels a bit like a student union with multiple table tennis tables and a few bars. Outside area on the first floor.
