Located right next door to Camden Town tube station, the Ballroom is still dining out on its (admittedly impressive) history, hosting as it has gigs by the likes of The Smiths, U2, The Clash, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Hüsker Dü. The immediate threat of closure to allow the rebuilding of the underground station has been lifted due to that proposal's initial rejection (although wrangling is ongoing) and this, coupled with a welcome major refit of the interior has revitalised the venue. Gigs run the stylistic gamut, while regular club nights on Friday and Saturday roll on until the small hours and the vast space is taken over by an indoor market/café at weekends.

The security was clearly abusing them competency . Very aggressive and brutal. I do not understand how male security can have this power to even start touching a women( basically putting his hands exactly in the places where he should not!!) ?! Especially on the way to the exit after the gig finished - it's unacceptable ! Also many people were complaining that they got robbed on a dance floor .... And me and my friend we have seen that some guy was handling the fair sum of money to the security guard... I wonder how the big venue place can be managed in this kind of way???Also I think maybe police should keep an eye what's going on down there .....
Definitely I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone!!!!
This is one of London's best live music venues.
It tends to play host to bands that have outgrown The Barfly and Borderline, but are not yet ready to play Wembley Arena or The O2. Its one minutes walk from Camden Town tube station which means you have a wide choice of places to hang out before and after the gig. My favourites are the wonderful Spanish bar #Barganza oppose for an Estrella before , and #Joes opposite The Roundhouse for an after-party till the early hours.
The Electric Ballroom has a large standing area in front of the stage and a small upstairs gallery and bar.
Last night we saw Whiskey Myers and The Cadillac Three turn Camden into a suburb of Nashville. The place was ROCKING.
The sound was crisp - the venue absolutely packed.
If you don't know the bands look them up now because they are breaking through
Try to catch them at a venue like The Electric Ballroom where you will feel that you are spending a night close up with the superstars of tomorrow.
