    Amazing helpful staff. Went out of their way to identify my needs and make my visit there enjoyable - without even been asked. Thank you so much

    Nowhere near enough bar staff to serve the thirsty hoards. Bar service so slow the venue may as well be dry. Preload, or being a hip flask.

    The best music venue in London, hands down. Amazing gigs, always.

    Good views are to be had everywhere because of the incline of the floor.

    Bug venue, good for gigs and nights out alike. Sloped floor towards the stage helps.

    Venue is ok, but crew very bossy and a bit freaked out.

    Possibly my fave venue in London. Just the right size, and the sloping floor means you can ser even from the back!

    Great venue, floor is slanted which makes the view much better, although after standing for 3 hours it hurts your back pretty back on the slope!

    Great venue with visibility from everywhere thanks to the slopping floor. They take credit cards at the bar.Good acoustic.

    Had a great time watching massive attack - just wish they'd sort he queues out for drinks and stock some decent drinks. Terrible range of spirits and awful beer.

    Not even O2 WiFi here? Really?

    The floor going down at a huge slant means no getting angry at the tall person in front of you!

    Through all my life as a dj and music fan, o2 gets the award of the worst sound quality I've ever heard and I've had my fair share of shows all around the globe.

    Fantastic venue. Once you're in you can't go out and back in again though so make sure you have everything you need before you go in!

    Decent venue. Bars are quick, and the floor slopes for a good view from wherever. Acoustics aren't as good as Shepherd's Bush.
