When I think of hip Islington venues, Electrowerkz is probably what comes to mind right away.

Tucked away in a dark alley right behind the station, you're not really sure which entrance it is you're looking for - but once inside, it's really quite hip and... oh who am I kidding? It's pretty terrifying and cold and too-cool-for-school. Black, industrial setting and noise.

Not everything though! It's a great venue for gigs with a good size stage and what seems like disappearing rooms (it looks different in there everytime we visit). One time we had access to a courtyard with table football and a mini-bus in the middle that functioned as a bar; the next time all we had was a small room with a bar and black walls and the gig venue.

It's a mixed bag but if you like the line-up, who really cares?


Electrowekz certainly isn't upmarket and clean cut but it does have an intimate and cosy feel to it.

Having used to be a stable for the horses that pulled the trams for London Transport, this place definitely has character. I saw the amazing Thomas Azier here and the space he had was just perfect. AV is spot on and the sound fills the room perfectly. There was a little bar at the back of the room I was in, which was very limited but did the job for me and it was also very well air conditioned seeing as I went on a hot and stuffy day. 

I would definitely go back without a doubt as it is on the doorstep of Angel and Upper Street but I can't imagine most of their gigs are my style of music.


I've only ever been here to attend Voodoo, the rock/metal night that happens here the last Friday of every month, but it does the job! What I will say is be prepared for sticky floors and dingy walls, but I happen to love that about this place. 

Plus it's HUGE, and I mean huge. I still manage to get lost here when I go, but that could be because of the alcohol... There are lots of little rooms instead of one massive one, but that means you can listen to many genres of music all in one night, a plus you have to admit! I would suggest wearing comfy shoes though - there are plenty of steps to negotiate around. 

Location wise it's like a 2 minute walk from Angel station, and there are tonnes of night buses that zip all over the capital so no excuse to go home after stumbling out at 5am!
