Electric Brixton

After a £1m refit, former rave palace The Fridge reopened in 2011 as Electric Brixton. The converted cinema building has a capacity of 1,700 for club events and 1,500 for live shows, a size which – according to its new owner – fills the gap left by the closures of the Hammersmith Palais and the Astoria on Tottenham Court Road. In its former life as The Fridge, the building hosted legendary hip hop, funk and synth-pop nights for 25 years. Nowadays it has a full calendar of live music and club events, both of which take advantage of the brand new sound system and the venue's classy art deco interior design.

I've been to two gigs here - one was a DJ night with Tube & Berger, and the other was the gig of Australian dance group Rufus. I really like the idea of the venue - the two levels, the way you can get a good view of the stage from the balcony. But I've just ended up getting frustrated both nights that I've been here. Maybe it attracts a different sort of crowd? People always seem to be jostling for a space on the dance floor, and the queue for drinks at the bars is usually ridiculously long. However, the sound is good, and they do host some good DJs. It just wouldn't be my first choice of venue to go to.
