Brilliant venue and the bar isn't a half a mile trek from the stage so don't think your experience will be disrupted by those necessary trip for alcohol.

Great service, excellent sound and a modern clean setting make this London's best venue. If only Brixton Academy could get its act together and be up to the standard of the roundhouse, many goes would have much more enjoyable night out

Amazing venue with great sound. Staff were amazing and couldn't have been friendlier. Great bar downstairs!

This is another of London's Iconic Music venues. It's circular (duh!) and an old engine turning shed. Due to its age and structure the building's roof is supported by a number of pillars half way across the standing area which obstruct the view of the...More

This was our first trip to Roundhouse, and had heard glowing reviews previously. We were not disappointed! The venue is small - only 1700 capacity and there isn't a bad seat in the house. The main floor is all standing, with seating on the upper...More

Went here to watch Erasure, loved this place. Firstly the staff were great, helpful, friendly and actually seemed to enjoy what was going on, but also seemed to be checking everyone thoroughly and very aware of what was happening in every area. This for me...More

Very friendly place and got us in smoothly after the recent terrible events. Atmospheric and quirky venue with good sound and beer prices comparable with local (horrible) pubs. The only downside was it was confusing where the exits where (nearly ended up backstage).

What a night! Top music and the bars weren't too expensive or busy. Love the fact that the venue was a free party squat in the '90s and is carrying on the tradition of good music and parties all these years later!

I saw two nights of Frank Turner's Lost Evenings series, and this venue is fantastic. Reasonably-priced drinks and a venue that feels intimate even as it holds enough people to really create an intense vibe. Love it!

I recently came to Roundhouse for a concert and fell in love with the venue! I did not realize how big it was inside from the pictures. We had tickets for the second level, which I worried would be really far from the stage, but...More

When queuing for a gig (i.e. to try an get to the front) do you queue outside on the pavement, or inside the venue? Want to make sure I don't miss out!

Outside the glass doors on the pavement/steps. You may also have to queue upstairs outside the inner doors of the concert space itself. Hope this helps.
Hello! I'm from the States but was lucky enough opener to be at the Buzzcocks show at the Roundhouse in October. Such a great show in such a storied venue. Do you know who the first band to go on that night was? I was impressed.

It really depends upon how popular the band is. The Roundhouse is a mid-sized venue and holds about 3,000 people with the majority of the tickets for the downstairs standing section. However, its layout is excellent so even... More
