This celebrated multi-functional venue is conveniently located opposite the tube and train stations and is only 20 minutes from Oxford Circus.
The Edwardian building dates back to 1914 and previously hosted The Palladium Picture House cinema, live music venue The Ace and more recently the legendary Fridge nightclub.
The MAIN ROOM has retained the theatrical structure, with the ground floor and stage overlooked by a mezzanine gallery, which helps lend this large space an intimate atmosphere. Original features have been retained wherever possible, and the striking shades of blue & gold add to the grandiose classical look whilst modern touches throughout (gilded banquettes, disco ball chandelier, sleek furniture & contemporary bars) bring the lavish décor up to date. The room is framed by two large bars and features a separate VIP area with occasional seating.
Electric Brixton boasts a capacity of 1500 for live shows and 1700 for receptions or club events - and can also accommodate dinners (200 pax) and presentations (250/ 300).
Adjacent to the main hall, the BABY ROOM (with a capacity of 150) has its own separate sound system & bar and can operate either as an extension of the main space, as a secondary event space or as a VIP area.
The long-standing live music heritage of the venue means it is particularly well set-up in terms of loading access. There's a vast backstage area and access to three dressing rooms, a production office and a technical manager help to make the planning of live shows and events as smooth as possible.
A full front of house team (security, box office, cloakroom, bar staff, floor staff, sound & light technicians and duty managers) is part of the hire package. Other notable facilities of the venue are a dedicated catering back-of house room and the off-street smoking terrace.
The venue operates a license until 4am Monday to Thursday, and a 24h license on weekends.
