    This club was still being built as a cinema when the First World War broke out, and it became an aircraft factory. It opened as the King’s Cross Cinema in 1920, which closed in 1974.

    Although the venue has vacillated between use as a picturehouse and concert hall the Scala’s one consistent trait has been its lack of respect for authority. Read more

    Not only is La Scala home to loads of gigs but it also hosts the monthly emo/hardcore clubnight Facedown. Dare you not to feel too old.

    The bar at the top is often quieter than all the others. View of the stage from the rail on the second level is great

    Try to avoid using the cloak room unless you're prepared to wait a loooong time to leave

    Enjoyed the concert, but the venue is too small... Also too much bass... too much waiting time in a very long queue to collect the tickets... Could have been more organised I reckon..

    Follow the sign for the toilets and keep going up stairs to a bar overlooking the stage. Quieter and great view.

    Be aware that this venue has a standing location only. So don't wear those highly uncomfortable heels ladies!

    Try the great top balcony view (when it's open) for those quieter gigs where you'd rather get away from the sweaty hordes in the crowd below.

    If you're doing the rebel bingo then make sure you interact with the black Russel brand outside to get VIP stamps - otherwise drinks are a pain!! :)

    Went to see Litmus play here and there are lots of stairs, the venue is quite quaint and there is seating in the bar area by the window. Odd layout.
