Koko

It opened in 1900 as the Camden Theatre, and was one of the biggest London theatres outside the West End, but after a long career as a theatre and cinema, it became a music venue, the Music Machine, in the 1970s. Many punk bands got crucial exposure here, and AC/DC's Bon Scott had a fatally good time here in 1980. In 1982 it became the Camden Palace, but then in 2004 it underwent a multi-million pound restoration (including a massive and award-winning commitment to sustainability) and morphed into KOKO. It's since been one of the top live music venues in the capital.

Tube access is available from Mornington Crescent (just across the road) or Camden Town which is just over a mile away. Blue badge holders can park on the single yellow line on Crowndale Road and Bayham Street, while there are plenty bicycle racks for those travelling by pedal power.
