“Great place for a small gig”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

They tend to do metal/alternative/rock music gigs early in the evening, then usually it turns into a club after.
It is fairly small but sound is carried around nicely. Has 2 bar areas but no snug or anywhere to sit down.
Averall good music venue, not Camden's best but worth a visit.

“Great small rock venue”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

Went there for a concert with Marty Friedman and some other great rock musicians. The venue is in the basement beneath the World End pub. It is quite small, fits approximately 500 people. Great place for a small gig. I had a great time. Music was great, the crowd was great and the sound level not too quiet and not too loud. More or less perfect, in other words.

“Historic Rock Venue”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

Scene of some phenomenal gigs and great club nights, the underworld is a great venue to see any band that appeals to you. Compact and underneath the Worlds End pub it is a must visit if a band is playing there that you like. Quality venues where you can get close to the performance are not as easy to find as they used to be, but this is one of them.
For clubbed there are some good metal/punk/rock nights, and for unsigned bands this is one of the pinnacles of places to gig.

“Kicking against the Stink”
Reviewed 30 March 2010

Camden Underworld is a legendary venue where metal, punk and indie bands play every weekend and sometimes through the week. Unfortunately the UK smoking ban has not been kind to Underworld, as there's a definite fug of stale beer, mould and... metalheads. But it's worth it... and hey, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em!
