Its a good size venue to get close enough to the artist and not feel claustrophobic but big enough to get a great atmosphere. Excellent location just along from Camden tube station. Security staff friendly and drink not too badly priced, just a little more...More

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

Not impossible but not before 8pm. check carefully as there is a lot of residential zones. The public transport - underground is one min from the venue. Northern line runs 24 hours on Fri and Sat night
