    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

    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!
  • Alex C.
    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.

    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

    The Grade II-listed Roundhouse was built in 1846 as a turntable shed for steam engines, and the venue has married beautiful looks with beastly behaviour ever since. Read more

    Fantastic venue and amazing bands and artists signed and unsigned have performed here. Creative projects are scheduled here. Roundhouse is an amazing charity for creative projects :)

    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!

    An incredible calibre of live shows happen at this venue (we've seen the likes of Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Grizzly Bear), including the BBC Electric Proms and various intimate shows by big acts. Read more

    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.

    Of course, this is one of London's great music venues. Even better for extreme circus. Look up to the roof on the extension and you'll see a little-known Antony Gormley.Of course, this is one of Londo

    Wanna see your favourite band in London's slickest rock venue? Go to the Roundhouse!! And if you're dropping by during the day, they do really nice freshly squeezed orange juice in the cafe downstairs

    Awesome. Went for the Apple Music festival. Will definitely go back. Look up when you're in there! Amazing roof and super friendly staff :)

    Really great music venue. The sound is spot on and there are upstairs seats if you don't feel like dancing/moshing. Beware, it's a popular spot for pickpockets :(

    Stunning venue and overall a good buzz about the place! Bar and restaurant inside if you want to grab something quick before the show!

    Very well designed music venue. The acoustics are probably the best I've ever experienced. Add amazing beer, what more could you want

    Favorite concert venue in London. Big enough for great acts, still an intimate show, and not a bad seat in the house.

    We, The Knife, will be performing live. We will be there, on stage, all seven of us, sometimes all ten of us, or even more. We have worked hard, together. Things, ideas, concepts have been tried.

    I was passing by and saw this place. There was the concert of "Half Moon Run". It was great concert and place is very cosy itself!

    Chic and clean, with clever lighting and cool exposed brick, The Roundhouse certainly sets itself apart from Camden’s other, perhaps less salubrious venues. Read more

    Very trendy venue, and a fantastic space for all sorts of events because of its versatility. Pop, rock, classical, dance, circus... it's an eclectic mix.

    Crystal-clear sound here - great for when we saw Grizzly Bear. You have to pay to withdraw money inside so make sure you have enough cash for the bar before entering!

    Great theatre. Drinks are relatively cheap for London but they have a policy of once in you can't go out of the building.

    A lot of metal passes through this refurbished, historical venue. Opeth recorded a DVD here. BMTH hosted one of the biggest hardcore shows ever. Just don't stand behind one of the pillars. Read more

    There's another smaller bar upstairs too. And if you've got seat for a gig but feel like moving, there's space to dance at the front and back of the upstairs section.
