Ultimate Power Ballads at Scala

What was once a picturehouse, a concert hall (along with brief stretches as an aeroplane parts factory and demob labour exchange), the Scala today is a brilliantly big blank canvas club that can accommodate huge, multi-floored club nights to gigs from bands on the cusp of real stardom in its banked main room.

Amazing music venue that is also very well located, it is not too big which allows for a much more intimate experience. It has a very relaxed atmosphere and hosts all kinds of events. The staff is friendly enough, although could be a lot friendlier. It is a little bit hard to find though so make sure to arrive with plenty of time. 

An iconic venue in the heart of the city. I’ve been there on several different occasions; an acoustic gig, muay thai fight night, back to 95 garage rave & salsa night etc and had a great time every time… Lots of different rooms to choose from – so good if you like variety / get easily bored… Not so good if you get easily lost. The drinks are a little pricey, but no different to other central London venues.


This is one of the best music venues in London. It's a great size, has an unpretentious atmosphere, and is centrally located. And if you need to get away from the pulsating mass of concertgoers, there's a small space at the back to get a breather.
