The area
Address
Neighborhood: Camden
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 Street and its tributaries can get during the weekends, this neighborhood is right next to some of the city's most beloved outdoor spaces, namely Regent's Park and Primrose Hill.

Came here for Desertfest 2022….. last here for Desertfest 2019.

It was bad back then, but even worse now. Advice for future Desertfesters- make sure you buy tickets with full access to the Electric Ballroom AND the Roundhouse, as the cost of standard tickets will only get you in grotty places like this ….

Seemed to be lots of locals who couldn’t get into the other pubs in the area. Cramped the place right up.

Remember, this is post Covid after the restrictions were relaxed…..

…literally standing in urine soaked floors with a waft of filth in the air. Couldn’t stay…. Unhygienic.I think hell would be cleaner, as at least that would burn the germs away.

No disabled access- rickety stairs with damaged, slippy laminate flooring lead into the Underworld.

It was a Shame for the bands who played there- it stunk and it was not fair on them to have to put up with that, and people left.

Never again

Bouncers are ignorant & aggressive - forcibly ejected a pal for having ‘long hair’. He calmly asked if it might be a case of mistaken identity? They put his arm behind his back & forced him up a stairwell/pushed him, etc.

Surprising no one in a rock club, there were a number of men with long hair & it *was* a case of mistaken identity. Bloke who was guilty also had long blonde hair - other than that, they looked naff all alike. They had made my pal wait for an hour & a half outside whilst they were going to ‘check CCTV’.

Eventually, Mr. Strong Arm bouncer said ‘I’ll let you back in if you behave yourself. You’re lucky.’ They don’t have time to check CCTV, etc. Friend reasonably asked why they were talking to him like he’d done something wrong, he was a paying customer who’d been strong armed out of a club for no reason. &, he’d seen the actual culprit strong armed out 20 minutes earlier by the same bloke!

They were all mouthy, passive aggressive, barely veiled threats, but my friend wouldn’t let it lie. So, to not appear culpable whilst knowing they’d made a right f up, they let my pal back in as if that should be a blessing. It soured the bday party (10 people +) on the whole night. It was cringe on management & security’s behalf.

At least offer a free drink for the trouble, Christ.

I bought a ticket for April 12 to see my favourite band Draconian. There were Draconian +two other bands, evening was from 7pm to 11pm.Underworld's website stated that Draconian will start last ones at 9:45pm.I did not fancy other bands so I arrived around 9:30 and was disappointed that order was changed, Draconian started second and were already finishing by the time of my arrival. I complained at the bar but bar staff told me that I need to email directly to underworld. I sent them email, attached screen shot from their website and asked for ticket refund. Now is end of May and I am still waiting for their reply.

Sorry to hear of your disappointment at the gig. Unfortunately schedules do change on occasion, with the best source of up to date information being our social channels for announcements, gigs etc. Perhaps try resending your email to the address you have as it may not have been received. Our events team are usually 'pretty on it' when it comes to responding to customers so it may be the case that it has not arrived in their inbox. Hope we can welcome you to another gig again in the future.

I used to love underworld however the security staff last night when attending the emo night were incredibly rude and judgmental. A friend of mine has a hidden disability but was not wearing her lanyard, she thought you needed a covid pass to get into the venue and was looking on her phone for it, she didn’t hear what the man on the door said so he refused her entry for being “too drunk” which she wasn’t. I spoke to the security manager who was completely unwilling to listen and even walked away mid conversation. I understand that security isn’t an easy job and I respect that, at no point did we make an unfair statement, raise our voices or swear, we just tried to explain the situation peacefully and were not given the same level of respect back. We queued for this event in the cold for a period of time just to be turned away by the security on a power trip. Underworld you need to do better, would definitely avoid the club nights if you’ve got a hidden disability and you don’t want to be unfairly labelled.

I used to love this place but for some reason it seems to have really gone downhill. The beer is so expensive, it cost £6.60 for a pint of lager, so I thought I’d try a bottle of Kopparberg, that was even dearer, £6.93. I don’t see how they can justify these prices. I walked onto the downstairs floor space to watch the band and every step I took my feet stuck to the floor and that was early in the evening, so they don’t even mop the floors.

Was here for a show and it was honestly one of the best shows ever. This small venue is loved by many in Camden, London and generally speaking the rest of the world!

If it’s packed, it gets quite steamy in there but I guess that’s a bit of the charm of going clubbing there. Lovely staff who takes good care of you, I don’t drink alcohol and asked for bottle water.

The woman who served me said to me, that she could just fix me a glass of water for me instead, so she did. She made it look like a real drink, with ice cubes and lime slices - so thank you, I didn’t feel alone around all the people who were enjoying alcohol 😍

No cash , no entry. Turned up with cash only was and was refused entry, they said they don't accept cash. I even offered to leave my cash at the box office and return the next day with a credit card, they refused my offer. Nowhere on their website does it say no cash. Tip, plenty of other Camden venues accept cash.

Thanks for your comments and this is something we review regularly as a team. The decision to be cashless was not one we took lightly, but is reflective of the general move of the industry and does have a number of operational benefits for us as a business. Sorry for any inconvenience cause though, and we do hope you will return and visit us again in the future, with your contactless card :-)

We tried to visit this club for a friends birthday, and received shocking treatment. We were refused entry for being too intoxicated, when we were entirely sober. The security had even accused us of throwing up behind the venue, when we had been sat outside waiting for it to open patiently. The management were rude and uninterested (I have video evidence) and I left a review on google. The manager emailed me and said he had forwarded my email across to sort out but I have not heard anything back since, despite following it up. Avoid at all costs, would never return.

Went for a Saturday club night. Bar is decent and drinks ok prices. There is s big dance floor that turns into a mosh pit when heavy rock comes on. They play rock but much of it light stuff. All popular songs. It’s fun but the sound system is old, loud but not the best. We had a good time.

Bigger than I remember. It's below the worlds end, got loads of nooks and crannies (great for fingerbanging).
