    Great venue at the large end of small, The Borderline hosts fantastic bands of a range of sizes week in, week out. One of Soho's better sounding and smelling venues.

    While not much to look at inside or out, a great intimate venue for concerts. Noone is far from the stage...or a bar. But bring comfortable shows as mainly standing room only.

    Saw the heavy there. Make sure to come early if you want to see a band play. If not you will have to watch on a poor tv screen

    Nice venue but my lord do the gents toilets smell rancid and have done since about 1992. Until they get some air freshener it's best to hold your breath if you need to go!

    A place perfect for rock/metal/whatever gigs! It's a small pit, basically. You are gonna like it!

    Nice compact venue. Rather like Trillians on Newcastle but with less Geordies.

    The Borderline hosts shows from all sorts of bands but a tiny little sweatpit deep in SoHo is only good for rock 'n' roll and you know it.
