A very functional venue. I've seen some great bands play here but to be honest it's not a special venue. Being quite small if the band I'd popular, it'll be uncomfortably rammed They old have basic drinks Luke turbot, so it's not a great place to drink either. If your going for the place, don't bother but for a band well do! A little known fact is that there is also an upstairs, so if this is...more

3 words: club de fromage

Unfortunately, there are so many other words that i can't give this place more than 3 stars. I think I'm just a bit too old. I used to go here a lot though, for the cheese.

Music Academys' should be somewhere cool, N1 Shopping Centre in Islington is not cool. It's the epitome of mainstream, people who go here wear Next and Monsoon and start there night with a drink in the Loydds No. 1 bar. Like I said, it's not cool.
