The Underworld
Housed in the basement of the World's End pub, the aptly named Underworld has seen a serious amount of alternative rock action in its time, including gigs by the likes of Pulp, Hole and Mercury Rev. It's a dark and somewhat gloomy, wooden-floored space with a rather awkward layout that makes getting in early to bag a good viewing spot from the balcony rails a smart move on busy nights. Air-conditioning and a late (until 3am) licence are bonuses. The music programme is heavy on the mutant punk/screamo, emo, noise and metal hybrid fronts, but not exclusive. Saturday night indie- rock club Silver, launched in 1993, is still running.

The Camden Underworld is ideally located couple of minutes away from Camden town station (Camden high street side).
This club calls itself the home of Rock. I wouldn't take this too literally if you're a hard rocker because it is really a big mix of proper rock and some really different stuff like Skrillex (which is very much electro).

The place didn't get busy until 12/12.30PM (we arrived pretty early as we were on a guest list) which is quite a good thing if you ask me.

I personally had a great night and thought that at least, it was a bit different from usual clubs!

After a few drinks at the sister pub The World's End, I went to the Underworld for the Camden Rock night, a soirée they host on Saturdays where, as the name states the only music that surrounds the club is Rock, Indie and Alternative. The club is dark in terms of lighting, but it's very well organized, with wooden floors throughout, a bar upon entrance, a cloakroom, balconies and a dance floor. Drinks prices for mixers are quite cheap with a Vodka lemonade selling at £3 (paradoxically is more expensive to buy a beer) and a bonus is that there's Air Conditioning, which is fundamental, especially when clubs' temperatures are usually too warm to stay long. Entrance (at least on Saturdays) is £5 and only cash is accepted for the entry tickets (whereas for the bar you also pay with card).

I went to both the Underworld and the World's End only once but I must say the atmosphere there is pretty nice and not as touristic as one would think considering the tube exit is pretty much in the bar.

The World's End is great for a few drinks with friends even though it's a bit too noisy for an actual conversation. The deco is grand, all the rock'n roll one would need!

As for the Underworld, rock music, fairly cheap not too crowded: positive review overall.
