2 Love It
Camden Town

Bringing Camden the delights of guitar music since 1973, this venue in the middle of Camden Lock might largely put on bands that tend towards the lesser known, but they still manage to pull off the odd coup. Given that it's on the medium-to-small end of the gig venue spectrum (capacity is 483 punters), it attracts the odd seminally scuzzy, arty group (think Mission Of Burma, Lou Barlow, etc) as well as much-feted up-and-coming acts (Marina And The Diamonds, Mumford And Sons and White Denim all played early gigs here).

Ehhh, I didn't have a negative experience with the staff upon seeing Nizlopi here, but I didn't have a particularly positive one, either. The venue is your standard room with a stage at one end and the bar at the other. The sound is okay, the location is a bit tricky to find, and while some prefer an intimate setting such as this one (no seating that I remember), I would much rather go to a venue like the Empire in Shepherd's Bush or the Forum in Kentish Town.


The staff are rude and disrespectful to customers. The over all atmosphere was terrible, I should have listened to my friends opinions and stayed at home. It was overall a complete waste of money.

terrible experience, the stuff behaves superior to visitors, always pushed and commanded.
