Brixton's multi-floored bar and club the Prince of Wales serves many functions, but its club space and terrace are the jewel in its musical crown. The terrace is arguably the best of any club in London, and summer months see parties (led by top crews like Slide and Get Diverted and Brixton Boogaloo) take place way up high. There's a loose funk, house, soul, disco and hip hop ethos to PoW's programming, and you'll find selectors like Gilles Peterson, Norman Jay and Joey Negro spinning party jams on any given weekend. Alongside that, various house and techno legends also make appearances, playing on both the terrace and the inside section of the club, making PoW a truly versatile venue.
Push through the furs and overcoats, and break through the wardrobe into a magical wonderland of ice bars and forest stages, and capture the experience in our fairytale themed photo pod.
Enjoy hot buttered rum punch and mulled cider in our Boogaloo Bar, and feast at our seasonal bratwurst BBQ.
Expect extraordinary entertainment for the winter season with live acoustic sessions, a rooftop cinema club and the Magical Storytellers’ Club as well as comedy for kids and grown-ups.
We’re ready to bring Brixton its very own winter wonderland. Come and join us to help bring the magic to life!

I'm sure it was a great venue, however I barely got to experience it as I got kicked out after complaining about one particularly aggressive door man who was rude and intimidating and just an overall sorry excuse for a human being. One of the other staff members even agreed that he was a menace. I've never experienced a night like it and I will never be setting foot in the place again. In addition, multiple other staff members were very unhelpful and rude.
Drinks were relatively reasonably priced and the venue was easily accessible.
I would like to leave zero stars
Awful staff! Bar man short changed me and refused to believe he could be wrong. When the manager realised I wasn't going to let it go she counted the till and returned with my correct change but no apology. When I asked for an apology I was to I was rude and she got security to remove me from the premises.
If I could give minus stars I would!
Awful security who spent most of the night standing either on-stage or in the middle of the dance floor. They seemed to enjoy being a menace. Event was in a grim-looking black room - no attempt to decorate or light up.
We were all extremely disappointed as we'd been expecting so much more from the Greg Wilson night out. I hope Greg selects his upcoming venues more carefully in future. As for the POW, we'd never going back.
Nice venue with an eclectic programme of events, set in a nice art deco setting. Really like what they have done with the roof terrace in the winter, and always good for a drink in the summer.
I had a great night on Thursday but my friend had her jacket stolen. This seems to happen quite frequently as I also had a jacket stolen last year. Unfortunately the security guards and management did not seem at all interested in investigating these thefts.
One of my favourite venues in London, always a great party! Amazing vibe, staff are really friendly and the music is always on point. If your ever in this area, I would highly recommend checking out The Prince of Wales.
My first time at this venue. Had a good night, but was spoiled by a rude barman towards the end.
Security and the door girl were very helpful as one of our friends never had a ticket and they helped source on for her.
The roof terrace was amazing. Would defo go again.
Was here on Saturday 6th February. The music was really good and the vibe too. We never had a ticket for the club as they were sold out. We went to the pub and the bouncers said they'd come find us if any became available. They were true to their word. Who does that?👍
My friend had an issue with losing her purse, but the bouncers were very helpful and found it.
I'll would Defo come back again.
Great venue! In the summer, the terrace is amazing... I thought that was it, but has suprised to see the club with great bands and music :)
