    Get there on time to get a good view otherwise you'll be looking at the backs of people's heads all night. Great sound though.

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

    Lots of stairs (scala means staircase in Latin) bring flat shoes!!

    Great venue!

  • Eleni M.

    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..

    Bo Ningen are awesome...

    Here for the #NINScala gig? Let me know how it goes!

    Nice venue. Too bad the toilets were kinda small and cramp.

    Popstarz back at the scala for the first time in ages. It should come back permanently.

    Adam Smith · March 29, 2013

    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!

    very good concert venue

    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.

    "Click to listen to writer David McGillivray and Helen De Witt from the BFI remember the heyday of The Scala in the 1980's, when it played alternative films from B-movies to horror films." Read more

    Seen Dope Stars Inc Perform Here Live

    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

    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

    This place has more stairs than the final scene of The Labyrinth!

    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!! :)

    Jacob Gabriel · July 30, 2011

    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.

    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.

    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.

    saw Ghostface here, complete rip off other than Yarah Bravo who is wicked

    John Lyons · November 16, 2009

    went to see the dodos here, terrible sound and so hot it's uncomfortable
