Great venue. My friend and I enjoyed a relaxing evening, also at the Lucy Rose concert. As both of us were warding off colds we were happy to sit upstairs with our glasses of whisky and foot tap the night away. Great show, great sound and effects. No queue at the bar. Friendly staff.

I saw Lucy Rose here last night (best artist EVER by the way, just saying!) and was in awe at how beautiful the venue was, if you ever visit PLEASE take a minute to look at the ornate ceiling etc. Just the right size so that the gig felt pretty intimate but also big enough to gather a large number of fans! It's only a couple of minutes walk from Kentish Town station which is serviced by the Northern line and National Rail services, plus the overground station is only a ten minute walk away. The sound was incredible, as was the lighting - both making the performance by Lucy and her two supports totally mesmerising.

This is a beautiful venue, inside and out. I saw Fink here and will be seeing Eagles of Death Metal later this week, and I am so looking forward to it! The sound is really incredible and the venue lends itself well to lighting effects during shows. Drinks are your standard London pricing for the most part. Easy to get to from Kentish Town overground, though make sure you check when the last trains leave - we didn't and we ended up taking a cab home.
