Indigo at The O2

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

The little sister of the vast O2 Arena isn't really all that little. In fact, with a capacity of 2,350 – part-standing room, part-amphitheatre seating, sometimes part-table seating – the former IndigO2 is one of the city's bigger venues. It attracts big soul, funk and pop-jazz acts (Roy Ayers, Stacey Kent), knackered old pop stars (Howard Jones, Gary Numan) and all points in between. It's hosted everything from the NME Awards to the legendary 'X Factor' boot camp sessions and Jongleurs Comedy Club's twenty-fifth Anniversary shows. Given the right headliner, Indigo is well worth the schlep out to Greenwich – especially if you go by boat.

I saw Nelly perform at this venue a few weeks ago. What a great music venue! intimate and small, but not too small. I loved the layout, where you are looking down on the stage. The only bad thing about the venue is that at the end of the night if you are coming from the top floor and you want to get out there is a lot of foot traffic from people getting things from coat check. so if you have checked something in, leave a bit earlier to get it otherwise you will be waiting for ages. 


Ever since first entering the 02’s smaller sister venue, several years ago I instantly preferred it to the main arena. It’s smart, intimate and has the feel of an old-fashioned club venue.

There’s plenty of space downstairs to stand and watch gigs, and it’s also very easy to get back and forth from the bar and, crucially, the loos as well!

The acoustics are excellent as is lighting and general ambience. The upstairs circle is also kept small, so wherever you sit you’ll feel close to the action.

I’ve seen some great bands here including The Who. I definitely prefer it to the main arena because it’s so much more intimate.


A friend invited me to a "Live at Your Local" night. 8 bands performed 2 songs, then Razorlight played a short set. It was a great space for this kind of event, as you could seat upstairs or crowdsurf at the front. The bar had quick service, but it is quite expensive. The venue and toilets were clean. It is a bit soulless though, it really doesn't have an identity, and I would not chose to go there for a night out, but probably for another gig. 


I visited Indigo at the o2 most recently for the Kisstory club night event with some friends and we had a ball!

The place lends its self well to a clubbing location as well as a concert venue, with DJs and special performers on the stage and the standing area below for dancing the night away. All of the staff encountered were really friendly and helpful (one of the cleaning ladies even sourced plasters for my friends blistering feet... damn heels!) and service at the bar was quick. Only things that could have been improved was if they introduced some more temporary seating areas for the club nights, as the stalls near the bar were always occupied and sometimes a gal needs to rest her weary feet (again, damn heels). That said we went up to VIP which was nicea nd had ample seating available, although lacked a bit of atmosphere so we didn't stay for too long before coming back down. Another thing which could have been improved would be the queuing at the pop up cloak rooms, I felt that the locker system they had when I attended this event previously at Building Six at the o2 worked better.


I've been to the O2 a bunch of times, but never to the smaller concert venue inside it, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Well, what a lovely space! There is ample room for those who have standing tickets, and more balcony seats than expected. I went to the venue to see Starsailor perform and while there wasn't much of a crowd presence for the two opening acts, it quickly filled up afterwards - and yet I never felt squashed. the acoustics were really good too, which can be a bit of a challenge when standing in the front row near speakers (as I so often do). I only paid about 27 quid for my ticket - I'm not sure if that is a reflection of the artist or the venue, but I eagerly look forward to returning to the space again. Easily acessible, inside the O2 so there is lots to see and do and eat and drink around it, and a very pleasant experience overall!


The Indigo at the O2 seems an intimate space despite holding well over 2000 people.It feels roomy whether you are sitting or, if able, standing at the side.I was sitting quite far back for the most recent Overtones concert and, despite having a couple of very tall people in front of me, was able to see most of what was happening on stage. What I couldn't see was all the projected film at the back of the stage. Anyone sitting towards the sides would have missed out on that. However, the sound was fantastic, the lighting was good and the seats were comfortable. A great night out!


I've been attending here ever since I was a late teenager and could afford to buy tickets to gigs and raves inside the IndigO2! Big venue with standing (though there is room for seats) on the ground floor and then balcony seating above. This place holds A LOT of people and can be jam packed on the right night. I most recently attended the first State of London Debate with the new Mayor Sadiq Khan. Really good venue, good bars and nice and clean. All you would expect!

Went to see Dr Hook last night and it was fabulous! Every member of staff was cheerful and friendly. No waiting at the bar or for the loos. A big venue with a personal intimate feel ... Would definitely visit again, thanks Dave and the rest of the staff!

Good location and nice venue. Went to kisstory on Saturday 20 October 2012 and although we had VIP tickets we waited for 30 minutes to be served a drink! There were only 2 bar staff in the VIP bar. Absolute joke. Then the card machine broke so they only accepted cash, if you didn't have cash, you didn't get a drink. No apology! Kisstory put on a brilliant night. Shame the venue let them down.
