“Nice Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2013

Good sound system, Good view, the only thing is the orientation of the venue which makes it look packed than it is but actually there is space to move & get closer. Not many acts I like play here 1st came here in 2006 & then again in 2008. Just 2 mins from Kings Cross Sta

“Frost Bites concert”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2012

Went to the Frost Bites concert last Sunday. Doors opened at 7 with gig starting at 7.30 and a massive crowd stretched round the venue with security checking everyones bags as they went in.Subsequently many people did not see the start of the gig. There were crash barriers to herd everyone in against the outside walls but they seemed to be the wrong way round as everyone was walking over the metal stands.Inside it was packed to the rafters.Being too late to get into the auditorium as it was too full we stood on one of the staircases at the side which was also jam packed. Very disappointed with the venue. Not enough vantage points to see the concert. Seemed to be too many people in. Definitely will not go there again.

“Newton Faulkner Concert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2012

Really good venue, very close to Kings X Station. Fairly small, but access to bar was good.
Newton Faulkner was amazing as usual :)

“Great concert”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2011

We saw Bush at Scala. The sound was great, but the view next to the mixing booth where we were, had obstructed views. Everywhere else was great. The venue seemed large enough to have a great crowd, but intimate enough to actually see the performers.

“A great steampunk party with an Abney Park concert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2011

We went to the Scala at the occasion of the "white mischief" party for halloween 2011, because we wanted to see Abney Park. The AP gig was awesome, and the Scala is a very nice location to have such a party, with a great space, and a nice location close to King's Cross and St Pancras!
