TicketWeb Tip: For the best sound, stand right in the middle in front of the stage.
Where can you carry on the party? The Jazz Cafe hosts late-night club nights every Friday and Saturday night. Alternatively, wander south down Camden High Street to KOKO or north to any of Camden’s thousands of late night pubs and bars. We’re big fans of The Black Heart and The World’s End, both of which are just over the road.
