I went for the first time ever to Scala for a club night this weekend. The venue in itself is nice, but the security staff is a disgrace. Several of the people attending this events were inappropriately touched during the body search (in intimate places) before entering the venue, and I experienced having my skirt lifted up during the search, something I found very offensive and unnecessary....more

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.

Even though you have tickets, you get man handled through the doors. You don't even get searched so you wonder what all the fuss was about. You see the queues...more

Why can't all London venues be this awesome? It's so much smaller than your Brixton Academy or your HMV Forum... which is a big win in my book.

The sound (handled by a technician inside a cage-like apparatus on the balcony area) is great in here. And I love the layout -- you never feel like you're cordoned off into one section if you're upstairs or down.

I have one minor gripe with Scala...more
