Brilliant venue, only fault was that it was smaller too what expected. Overall staff were friendly and there was a good vibe. Hacktivist put on a brilliant performance. Drinks expensive as expected for London.

Are you clearly well over the age of 18? Forgot to bring your passport with you? Because, well, you're not a child? Forget it. These unimaginative, single brain-cell morons will NOT let you in. Gone are the days when you can go out, on a whim and enjoy some music.

Fans of hard rock/metal will feel right at home. Big standing area with a nice bar selection in the back. Great sound, great show, highly recommended.

have been to this venue on many occasions to watch bands play live, its a good size place and ticket prices are good. the only down side to this venue is the price of alcohol i bought a pint of bitter the last time i went and it cost me £4.90 total rip off

If you're into rock and metal type of music this place is very good. Huge, always busy. Sometimes music a bit loud.

Great size for a venue, although don't let yourself get squished in at the front if it's packed. Great selection of bands. Can't not love this place, grew up with it. Easy to get to as it's opposite the underground.

I went to see Gnarwolves in December 2015 and was honestly blown away. The venue has amazing vibes despite being so small. The whole combination of a grungy atmosphere and insane music creates for a perfect gig. Honestly, was absolutely wild and am eager to watch another gig there soon.

We recently went to watch Nocturnal Bloodlust at Underworld. After checking the website, it said the band were due on at 7.30pm. We arrived at 7.05pm and the band were already playing! We don't know what time they went on stage but since they said the set was 2 hrs long and it finished at 8.30pm, I imagine they went... More

I went here to see a show back in January. The area is small and there is no barrier to the stage which means that if you're at the front you will get squached between the stage and the crowd behind. There is also a chance that an act might trample you if they're not careful. There is also a... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Famous for its sprawling cluster of markets and shops as well as for an embrace of all things counter culture, Camden offers a concentrated version of London street life. From bargain shopping and people watching to rubbing elbows in its abundance of pubs and bars, Camden is the place to be for many a Londoner. It is also home to some of the hottest live music venues in Europe. As packed as Camden High Street and its tributaries can get during the weekends, this neighbourhood is right next to some of the city's most beloved outdoor spaces, namely Regent's Park and Primrose Hill.
