The Bloomsbury BallroomThis impressive 1920s ballroom has been extensively refurbished and now plays host to an array of live music and other events, as well as conferences and trade shows. The building's neo-classical facade dominates the entire east side of Bloomsbury Square. Redolent of the roaring 20s, right down to the understated Art Deco bar, the main hall - with its sprung floor and high ceilings - boasts a loud crisp soundsystem to do justice to the acts on stage. With former Mean Fiddler boss and live music mogul, Vince Power, at the helm this is a great medium-sized venue for the glam side of clubbing, and dressed-up bands.
