Tucked away in tiny basements, converted warehouses and cavernous chapels, London's live music venues come in all shapes and sizes. With an eclectic line-up of events, these venues showcase new names in the industry while also providing rare chances to enjoy intimate gigs from big stars.

 
 

Bush Hall

Former dance hall that now plays host to a variety of live music.

310 Uxbridge Road, London, W12 7LJ

Tube: Shepherd's Bush Market Station (Hammersmith and City Line)

 
 

A unique venue whose high ceilings have played host to a wide variety of artists from cabaret to cutting-edge electronica. Built in 1905 as a dance hall, it made its way to 2001 in various incarnations before being renovated into the live music and entertainment venue we know today. The larger Shepherd's Bush Empire down the road gets all the mainstream gigs, whereas the Bush Hall welcomes niche artists and those on their way up. Occasionally established bands also seem to love it for secret and fan club gigs.

Camden venue that's hosted everyone from the Sex Pistols to Goldie.

Camden Lock, Camden Town, London, NW1 8AB

Tube: Camden Town Station, Camden Town Station

 
 

This small Camden venue, known as Dingwalls, has a bar at the back, a stage at the front and room for a couple of hundred people in between. Just as renowned for showcasing up-and-coming talent now as it was in the '70s when the Sex Pistols, Blondie and The Ramones were just a few of the seminal bands who performed there, Dingwalls continues to be a champion of new music.

Heaven

This mega club is famous for its gay night but also welcomes an impressive gig programme.

Under the Arches, Villiers Street, Covent Garden, London, WC2N 6NG

Tube: Charing Cross Station, Embankment Underground Station, Leicester Square Station

 
 

London's most famous gay club is a vast labyrinth of dancefloors, bars, cafes and shops. This is the kind of place where it's perfectly ok- and encouraged- to jump on a podium: skimpy outfits are preferred. The atmosphere in this deservedly famous venue is second to none. As well as the notorious club nights, Heaven boasts a regular programme of live gigs, which include both established and up and coming artists. It has also been used for a number of music videos, including 'Tapes and Money' by dance producer and DJ, TEED.

Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen

Warehouse style bar with great acoustics and an impressive live music programme.

2-4 Hoxton Square, London, N1 6NU

Tube: Old Street Station

 
 

Hoxton Square have deliberately gone for an unfinished urban feel, with bare warehouse walls, scratched-up furniture and one huge glass wall exposing the clientele to the headlights of cars trapped in the one-way sytem. With the likes of Example, Foals and Austra gracing the venue's stage, it's a great place to uncover new music - expect sticky floors and big crowds.

Koko

Located in an old theatre, this Camden institution offers a mixture of live bands and club nights.

1A Camden High Street, Camden Town, London, NW1 7JE

Tube: Mornington Crescent Station, Camden Town Station, Camden Town Station

 
 

KOKO offers a great mixture of live bands and club nights that have put it at the heart of the Camden nightlife. The huge stage, broad balconies and plush upstairs bars are a reminder of its former role as the Camden Theatre, and the deep red colour scheme, chandeliers and gilt molding give it a decadent air that matches the rock stars who grace the stage. It has an illustrious rock 'n' roll history, having hosted The Clash and the Sex Pistols in the 1970s, and The Eurythmics, Madness and Madonna in the 1980s. It became a much-loved scuzzy rock club in the 1990s, before being restored and reopened in 2005.

Roundhouse

Big-name acts and a programme dedicated to fresh talent are all housed under this famous roof.

Chalk Farm Road, London, NW1 8EH

Tube: Chalk Farm Station

 
 

Boasting a colourful history, the Roundhouse initially started life as an engine shed. It was later transformed into a bonded warehouse for Gilbey's Gin before Arnold Wesker established Centre 42 here, insisting it became one of the most cutting-edge performing arts venue in the country. Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd played several memorable concerts and it is these performances that have sealed the Roundhouse's legendary reputation. By the 1980s it was a crumbling wreck and took £27 million to restore it. A shiny, angular, glass three-storey extension has been attached to the original dark-grey drum. Tickets for main performances here can be a little steep but you can rest assured that you're supporting one of the best artistic initiatives in north London.

Scala

This King's Cross venue is home to live music, clubs, art, and film.

275 Pentonville Road, King's Cross, King's Cross, London, N1 9NL

Tube: King's Cross Station

 
 

Housed inside the old King's Cross Cinema, Scala might be a bit tattered around the edges but this only adds to its battered charm. The venue welcomed legends like Iggy Pop during the 70s, but didn't become a  purely music venue until 1993. Since then though it has seen an illustrious series of soon-to-be-famous bands pass though the doors, including Foo Fighters, Chemical Brothers, Scissor Sisters and Coldplay.

The Forum

This former art deco cinema now welcomes a weekly programme of live gigs.

9-17 Highgate Road, London, NW51JY

Tube: Kentish Town Station

 
 

Once a gorgeous art deco cinema, The Forum is now an essential mid-sized rock venue. It's got everything you want from the North London rock scene, with superb bands week-in week-out, and a fully-lubricated, enthusiastic and music-loving crowd. Well-designed and well-organised it manages to avoid the bar queues that are a feature of so much London gigging, while the main stage has great sound and a design that brings bands far closer to their audiences than you have any reason to expect in a venue this size.

Union Chapel

The Islington Chapel is one of the most enchanting music venues in London.

Compton Terrace, London, N1 2UN

Tube: Highbury & Islington Station

 
 

This Grade II listed building just south of Highbury Corner functions not only as a place of worship, it is also one of London's most unique and enchanting live music venues with a diverse and enticing list of upcoming events. There's something quite magical about this place and you will be hard pushed to find a more memorable location to listen to live music in London. The Chapel has seen over a century's worth of visitors come through its doors and has welcomed artists such as Bjork, Tori Amos and Fionn Regan to the stage in recent years. Performers are framed by the stained glass window and the space is lit with the warm glow of church candles. A fully licensed bar is open on show nights, and a kiosk in the Chapel provides visitors with hot chocolates and snacks to keep hands warm in those chilly winter months.
