The O2 Academy: Islington

Tucked into the N1 Centre is the O2 Academy, Islington, a venue  for gigs and club nights.

Historically they used to hold the Propaganda club night, which was generally indie / rock music in one room and more RnB in the other. This night seems to have moved now to Electric Ballroom (see separate review). The new Friday night is called UpSurge, which focuses on rock, dance, pop and urban music.

Club de Fromage still features on a Saturday night, which is typically a cheesy music night.  If you want entry to both rooms, remember to buy the correct wristband. Entry is normally around £8. Drinks are reasonably priced at around £4.50 for a spirit and mixer. A fun night with a mixed crowd.
