    Bit of a uni students' haunt

    Fee 20£, expensive drinks. All techno music on main floor, some mainstream pop and trance downstairs. No way you can squeeze in or breathe down because there of bad ventilation and fog machine. 👎🏻

    Over-priced and the worst is how you are pushed off the street at the end by security staff like if you were cattle. Oh, and expect Essex chavs. Awful.

    Need a late night party on Tuesday night? Here's the answer. And don't be disappointed when you walk in! There real party is downstairs.

    If you want to feel like you're at the Oxford Circus tube station during rush hour, this place is for you!

    Downstairs is the best place in the club

    The stage is strangely tucked away to the right of the venue. So after you've got your drinks, head towards the right to find a good space. Not the biggest venue.

    I went there for Skream last night of residency and I wasn't disaappointed. Love the space and the people who work there are very nice. The soundsystem is as great as the line-ups (meaning fantastic).

    Excellent DJs, reasonable entrance price. Cloak room is £2. Cheapest drink is £4.50 for a can of beer. Keep up to date with latest events on Resident Advisor.

    One of the super clubs of London guaranteed to always have good music. A great sound system as well.

    Make sure you predrink - doubles are £9 upwards. Great music, first club I've really enjoyed in London.

    I enjoyed the music in basement level floor came there at 10 and had to stand for 2 hours in queue, worth waiting tough

    Seen some incredible shows here. A really small and intimate venue. Alcohol is way too expensive though.

    The music in the underground room was unreal! But has THE smallest smoking area in the world

    Not as touristic as Fabric or other famous clubs, cool music and nice people. Very busy in pretty much every night. Somewhat expensive booze and shitty and extremely small smoking area though. Read more

    Watching a gig? Stand to the left of the stage for easy access to the bar and to the stairs for a quick exit when it's over!

    The moment you walk into a place and see they only sell bottled beers you know you're in for an expensive night. With £4 for a 33cl can of beer, XOYO sadly is no exception.

    Prepare to sweat...this place gets rammed. Testament to the incredible bands that are booked to play here.

    Pretty good sound for a venue that is pretty much a factory basement, good bar-to-capacity ratio.

    They don't let you pay by card less than 10£, so bring some notes if you don't want to pay through the nose for a beer.

    If its a gig, expect lots of talking throughout, if it's a club night, expect lots of people pushing past you.

    One of my favourite venues for electro sets in London, great line ups and nice smoking terrace too. Saw Gold Panda performing there and it was absolutely brilliant.
