This place has a great vibe, but you need to know what you're getting yourself into. Went with a good mate of mine on a Saturday night to meet up with a girl he met online. Though we never ended up finding her, both of us had a blast.

Scala is first and foremost a rock & roll club / venue. Never have I been in a place with more concentration of tattoos on both guys and girls outside of a...more

The sound was excellent! Super easy to access from Kings Cross Underground. Quick...more

I love Scala for the same reason I love first dates: there's buzz when the doors first open, mystery around every corner, you're essentially in the dark and everything looks so damn sexy in low lighting... until you get frisked, which happens far too often in both cases.

There's expensive booze, strange overpowering smells, and what could first be conceived as an illusion of smoke and...more
