Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
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.
It began as a busy Irish club playing host to a wide variety of performers including the likes of Jim Reeves. In the past decades, acts such as Madness, The Clash, Richard Ashcroft, Snow Patrol, The Killers, Stereophonics, U2, Phil Lynott, Joy Division, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, The Talking Heads, Public Enemy, Blur, Supergrass, Iggy Pop and The Smiths have drawn huge crowds to the venue.
Recent performers include Muse, Foals, Prince, The Vaccines, Future Islands, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, George Ezra, Razorlight, Halsey, Parquet Courts, Idles, Interpol, Ocean Color Scene, Cage the Elephant, The Strypes, Shame, Of Monsters and Men, PiL, Alt-J, Megadeth, Pond, The Weeknd and many more!
It is also now home to ELECTRIC LUV - Camden's newest commercial, chart and club classics night happening every Saturday, drawing in a host of regular party-goers and first-time visitors to Camden alike.
We are pleased to introduce our new outdoor bar space - Backyard Ballroom 🍻
We will have Dj's from 6pm providing the biggest and best easy listening tunes from throughout the decades.
A BBQ will be on site in case you get hungry, is there anything more summer? (Vegetarian option available). We have worked hard to completely transform the backyard of the Ballroom into a relaxed and chilled vibe!
So come on down and check out Camden's newest outdoor space.
