Greenwich Peninsula

Proving that Greenwich can rave just as hard as the rest of London is Studio 338, a sprawling club that combines the best elements of underground industrial venues with slicker super-club vibes. So whereas the nearby O2 is happy to flex its credentials as a location for arena rock and stadium dance acts, Studio 338's multi-million pound refurb turned it into a far, far hipper destination, attracting dedicated dancers from across London and beyond.

World-class house and techno DJs – from the underground side of things – regularly spin sets at S338 (think along the lines of Kevin Saunderson and Marc 'MK' Kinchen) at nights like Half Baked, Cirque Du Soul and the parties form Manchester clubbing institution Sankeys (hosted exclusively at the Greenwich venue), and another big draw is the all-night terrace, allowing punters to do a bit of alfresco raving even in the unlikely event of rain appearing in London: the terrace is covered, of course. Luckily, the inside of the club is just as appealing, leaning towrads the industrial but colourful vibe beloved of many of Berlin's top nightspots.

We had massive issues with the security at Studio 338 as well.
we felt under a climate of fear since our arrival.
They aren't following any professional regulation and they search for random reasons to attack regular customers.

They repeatedly called in their right to act as they wish in their premises. 
Never seen anything like that before

I agree with Bana A below, the management of the place and the security staff are just a bunch of heaters, I just feel like sharing the experience that me and 6 friends had at this place in occasion of the CREW LOVE gig held on Saturday 13th of June 2015.


I truly hope that they will be stopped from this unlawful misuse of their right to refuse entrance.


None has rights to be offensive and aggressive to anyone especially towards sober and well mannered paying customers. 


7 of us had to leave the club because of the outrageous behavior of the club staff. 

We bought the tickets in advance on Resident Advisor to celebrate my friend's b-day and we were really looking forward to enjoy some good music in a peaceful and friendly atmosphere. 


From minute 1 the PR at the entrance and the bouncers have deliberately abused their power towards us, my friend didn't have her ID with her so she had the entrance refused, fair enough, she decided to make the effort to go back home to pick her document up, so the other friend who was supposed to join us later could meet her to get to the club together; 


At this point the 2 of us who made it through the security searches at the entrance, were called to get out from the PR girl as my friend didn't have her ID,  we found this very unusual and the attitude of the girl left us speechless, but we decided to get in anyway as between the 7 of us we spent £210 for the tickets and we really wanted to enjoy the night; 


so really politely 4 of us made the second attempt to get in, but as the PR girl refused the entrance, the bouncers wouldn't let us in. 


Eventually they changed their mind and we got through the fences, we got searched, we had our tickets scanned and we entered the club waiting for the others to join.  


In the space of not even one hour the 4 of us who got in, had to leave as the management were refusing entrance for - no reason - to the other 3 including the friend who went home to pick up her ID. 


The security and the house doctor publicly humiliated and verbally harassed my other friend who was carrying regular medications prescribed by her GP in her handbag. They shouted at her and insulted her, causing a her panic attack, the girl was left in tears, by then the evening was spoiled  so we decided to leave the club, we asked advice to the police and reported the situation straight away as we have never experienced such a treatment in a London Club or nowhere in the civilized world. 


We are now campaigning on websites where the club is listed and on social media, trying to get at least a refund for our tickets,as they don't seem to be very responsive...or reasonable.


 If you found yourself in a similar situation at this club, please help to spread the voice and tell everyone that this is THE WORST CLUB IN LONDON, it's really a shame because the place has really got a huge potential...if only was under a different management....

The only club I've ever been to which allows you to purchase an Early Bird ticket months in advance (November in my case) and then decides on the door, once you've passed through extensive security, that the price you paid for said early bird ticket (£10) no longer applies, and you have to pay an extra £15 (With no justification). I swallowed it... This time and this time only, as my friends and I had waited a long time to see the DJ's that night.

Absolute rip off, Total sham, joke of a club. Far, Far removed from the likes of much more decent clubs both in London and Europe which could demand a higher door fee than this place and have every right to do so, but they don't.... On the basis that they have respect for the Music and respect for the people that come to enjoy their club. £5 for a 330ml bottle of Beer, £2.50 for water.
The only highlight of the night was the Music. I can't fault the artists!

The sooner places like this close, the better!

Hands down one of the best clubs in London. Spacious, good vibes, glass roof in the main area adds another cool effect, outside in the garden there are food stalls ... it's one big party. Loves it!

The security are rude, militant and over the top. This venue is a sweaty green house by day and a putrid pit by night and as I got an ear infection. It's a massive shame because there are some seriously good line ups from some of the UKs best labels but there's no way you could pay me to go back to this club. Diabolical.

Brought a ticket and traveled for 4 hours to not get let in because and i quote 'the promoter is a plonker and he over sold tickets / let to many people in on the guest list and then sold to many tickets to people paying on the door' one of the big cheif security men said this. While we were standing there being told no some guy wandered out and got two girls from the crowd of people who couldnt get in, walked them straight in the front door infront of everybody which is just taking the piss. Alot of people are complaining about the security but I thought they were ok the ones i spoke to were anyway. Never going back now on the case to get my ticket refunded but I don't think that's going to happen. NEVER GOING BACK EVER

Great spot. Security very tight but solid and good guys they have to do what they're paid for Most of those complaining are drug dealers and thieves who never get in. I personally go down to the studio almost every weekend never had a problem yet.

By far best club in london, they keep the crap out and it shows as the vibe inside the venue is unreal. Im addicted to this venue it gets better and better. Staff are friendly, bouncers are firm but polite!!

Went along to hospitality mid summer barbecue on June 21 I was really worried about the security after reading the horrendous of reviews on here however i had no issues with security they were really firm but polite so I wouldn't worry too much about that. However let's talk about the venue ....

it is basically hotter than the sun , I don't mean that in a complimentary way . I mean it's like dancing in a greenhouse come steam room. Whoever thought that a glass roof with 3000 people dancing underneath it was a good idea is a mental. we were literally drenched in sweat - the only option to cool off was to go outside where it was raining . Oh yes then the ceiling starts to drip on you. I swear some excellent antibiotics could've been grown under that roof during that event. This was a daytime and evening event and the day we went was overcast and cloudy, apparently when it's sunny it's even worse it cooled a little in the evening but still I wouldn't risk it .

Don't be fooled by the pictures this is no Ibiza style club. The terraces area is basically like a carpark so don't get too excited, drinks also served from plastic bottles of Coke and lemonade similar to your parents barbecue . No issues with that if you're paying prices to match that but you're not.

This isn't a review of hospitality events the music was brilliant and so was the sound system but I would deafly not return to this venue. Sort out your aircon and ventilation studio338

I've bought a ticket for Saturday's 27/09 party. The security does not speak English. Almost strip searched at the entrance. When asked "why can not have chewing gums?" the security answered: "...yyyyyyy one minute...yyyyyyy" and finger pointed to the outside. I have stopped asking questions as he became nervous and I did not want to take a risk to be thrown away.

Later, about 21:40 me and a group of my friends were staying in a smoking area and suddenly the security approached one of us and said: "move". My friend simply asked: "where do you want me to move?" and that was his last word at the party as the security simply opened an evacuation door and throw my friend away. I was staggered. Went to the crew manager and asked "what was that? why my friend was thrown away with no reason?" - no answer at all. I told her (the security manager) that my friend is ill and this may be his last party and she just told me:" I'm not buying your story. Good bye" and I was also removed from the venue. Why should I lie? I am 38 years old and have been on many parties and visited many venues but this experience was the worst of all. Such a nice place ruined by pseudo- professional crew especially the manager. The earpiece with cable does not make you professional same as running boots won't make you Ussain Bolt. I'm sure not everyone was so unprofessional as spoken with other security officer and he spoken well English and went in to speak for me to the manager to let me back in but she just refused. 

Prices from space - a plastic bottle of koppaberg (not even a half a liter!) £5.50 corona beer £5.

Just shame. I doubt this club is going to last long.

Very disappointed, never will go there again. Strongly avoid.
