Camden Town has plays a vital part in modern music, being a huge part of the punk scene and having music venues where bands cut their teeth. Here is list of the top music venues in Camden Town.
Camden Assembly, formerly the Camden Barfly, has been one of Camden’s most important music venues for many year. Bands like Coldplay, Franz Ferdinand, and many more cut their teeth here. With a capacity of 200, you’re guaranteed to see energetic performances in a venue with great sound. Downstairs you will find a bar and be able to order food, but it’s upstairs you want to go to see the live music.
Located near Mornington Crescent underground station, KOKO has been in existence since 1900. A beautiful interior, it hosts both local and well-knows international acts. Either stand downstairs, or seating upstairs in true theatre style.
The recently refurbished Jazz Café is one of our favourite venues. Despite its name, it welcomes genres from jazz, rock, blues, acoustic, hip hop, electronic, and more. Check the listings page to see who will be performing. For a special night out, reserve a table at the upstairs restaurant while enjoying the live music.
