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.

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!

The sun's shining.... you've got your mates together.... you fancy a bit of a party... where do you go.... HERE! The PoW is (almost) a Brixton institution. Formerly Dex, and now making full use of the great roof terrace in the summer, PoW provides great music guaranteed, with big name and legendary DJs every week. They open the BBQ stall for most events too. It's not amazing food, but at 3am after a few-too-many rum punches, it goes does a treat! 


Couple of things to note - firstly, this is Brixton, so bring ID (essential for every venue in SW9) and the later it gets, the younger the crowd gets... and hence the more bolshy it gets on the dance floor. So go early, enjoy the sun and have a dance. You won't be disappointed.

This is a venue which often gets mixed reviews with regards to staff, service and quite a diverse crowd. However in my opinion POW is one of Brixton's best kept secrets with regards to week day late service. My go to late Thursday night haunt as they have epic live jazz which brings the entire diverse crowd together as you may end up jiving with 60+ year old men, that's just part of the fun. Open till 2am on Thursday nights, a must for anyone who likes jazz, and of course a late mid week tipple!

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.

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
