The 229 VenuePurpose-built venue with simple, stripped back decor. The two rooms have a total capacity of about 700, which means there's room for some decent club nights at the weekend, and low prices ensure a good turnout of students from the nearby International Students House. The real importance of the 229, however, is that its one of the few West End venues on the London gig circuit. It's as goods a place as any in Camden to catch up-and-coming musicians, and the central location also makes it a significant leg on the UK tours of major European artists.
