London Venues (200 capacity or thereabouts?)

Post by Trev » Tue Apr 17, 2012 8:20 pm

I'm looking for a venue that holds between 200-300?

I can only really think of The Lexington in that size bracket?

Any others that have popped up recently that I am not aware of?

93 Feet East maybe.

How big is The Bull & Gate? It seemed 200ish from the back with a full house.

I'd be keen on seeing what venues there are. Been considering doing a Kissing Just For Practice special in that London for a while.

Horrible place, though, isn't it.

Concrete
Camp Basement
Macbeth
Hoxton Bar and Grill
Hootanney (in Brixton, apparently)
The Borderline
Dingwalls
Bethnal Green Working Mens Club
The Nest
The Others in Stoke Newington

Internet research says The Bull and Gate is 150 capacity. But, it does seem bigger to me.

Yeah it's not the best. I hate to think how much beer'd cost there now, I'm sure cans were ridiculous pounds when I went there last maybe 4 years ago.

Underbelly in Hoxton? If memory serves it holds about 250 and it's very nice indeed. Bar is quite pricey though I think.

It's alright, too expensive though. But yep, good call.

Oh. Just thought. Amersham Arms in New Cross holds 300 and is relatively nice. Dunno how expensive it is but given it's in the depths of South London I'd assume cheaper than many?

I've now completely exhausted my venue knowledge. ;)

Thanks, looking for a central/east venue though....

There is JAMM in Brixton, too.

Bull and Gate does feel a bit bigger than Lexington to me and Hoxton Bar and Grill about same size.

I'd imagine Borderline is quite expensive. Dingwalls feels bigger than that if you include all the bar area.

White Heat place / Madame JoJos is similar size - but i assume pricy as well.
Barfly in Camden ?
Water Rats ?
