I've seen some intimate acoustic Jazz and Folk concerts here. The sound and the view are great, but the seats are hard.
The only thing I do not like about this venue is the smell from the bar. The stale beer/wine wafting from there is really off-putting. Please, please, please do something about it.more
Union Chapel is a really amazing venue - it's intimate with great acoustics, open seating, and good views from every seat. It's not corporate but not dingy either, which seem to be the two ends of the spectrum in London!

Great idea for a music venue! This place is a church on it's music days off.
Imagine popping into the local church and seeing some great musicians play where the priest usually stands!
The sound system is fantastic & it's an intimate venue, seating is free for all so get there early to pick your seat!
I wish all churches doubled as a music venue! Check it out if you get the chance.
