    One of our favorite music venue in London, great acoustics, intimate atmosphere and a place where you can actually see the act without having to rely on video screens.

    I came her to see blue and it's an amazing venue, a lot bigger than you think, cloak room staff are super quick and it has a really nice bar to chill out in before or after the performance starts

    Acoustics are not the best in this round house (heh heh) and more troublesome for quiet acts, but expect great atmosphere in a spectacular venue. It's plain lovely. The Kills were just amazing.

    Venue is cool and you get to see good names performing, however ventilation could work better and floor can become really sticky after some beers have dropped

    This concert hall was originally a turntable for train cars. It is now a beautiful example of how to repurpose industrial spaces and preserve history. The venue may outshine some of the artist inside.

    The venue is beautiful, a lot of history to it and feels very intimate. If you get the right band here, you're in for a treat. A gem of a venue.

    I am yet to find a venue with better sound. The view isn't the best when you're standing at the back, but the sound quality is amazing. Great acoustics!

    Its still one of the best venue in london....use the toilets at the left or right towards the stage they are quieter

    Cool, round venue with a bit of gothic touch with pillars in a circle at the main stage. Great view even from the bar areas in the back.

    I was passing by and saw this place. There was the concert of "Half Moon Run". It was great concert and place is very cosy itself!

    The ground floor bar offers a nice selection of eclectic (normal for North London) beers in a nice modern environment. Fantastic music space!

    The amazing Fuerzabruta is back. Drums, aerialists, strobe lights, water, and dance. I'm going to the 10pm show tonight, but it would be great to meet up in the bar at around 8:30pm. Tickets £32.50 Read more

    Great venue to get close to a band. The rest feels a bit like a student union with multiple table tennis tables and a few bars. Outside area on the first floor.

    Really great music venue. The sound is spot on and there are upstairs seats if you don't feel like dancing/moshing. Beware, it's a popular spot for pickpockets :(

    Great club, but it’s kind of weird they require to get paper tickets before allowing you in.. Why don’t use e-tickets?

    When there's a big crowd for a gig and you're stuck at the back, walk all the way around to the right and cut across. Easy to get close to the front!

    The Grade II-listed Roundhouse was built in 1846 as a turntable shed for steam engines, and the venue has married beautiful looks with beastly behaviour ever since. Read more

    Favorite concert venue in London. Big enough for great acts, still an intimate show, and not a bad seat in the house.

    Choose a seat with clear view, pillars are not really blocking the view. Nice theater

    Perfect venue. Try to delay a little as can’t get upstairs straight away if doors aren’t open.

    Of course, this is one of London's great music venues. Even better for extreme circus. Look up to the roof on the extension and you'll see a little-known Antony Gormley.Of course, this is one of Londo

    Wanna see your favourite band in London's slickest rock venue? Go to the Roundhouse!! And if you're dropping by during the day, they do really nice freshly squeezed orange juice in the cafe downstairs

    Chic and clean, with clever lighting and cool exposed brick, The Roundhouse certainly sets itself apart from Camden’s other, perhaps less salubrious venues. Read more

    We, The Knife, will be performing live. We will be there, on stage, all seven of us, sometimes all ten of us, or even more. We have worked hard, together. Things, ideas, concepts have been tried.

    Great theatre. Drinks are relatively cheap for London but they have a policy of once in you can't go out of the building.

    Great venue. Don't waste time queuing at the busy bar inside, there's another quieter bar outside ;)
