Lavishly-decored and showcasing some of the best gigs and club nights in London for over a decade. Lots of North London charm nestled within a cosy interior and the acoustics are always on point!

My first night out in London and one of my best nights out ever. I went on a Friday and it was buzzing. Vodka mixers were £1.50 before 12 which is so good for London. Would recommend!

This is the best club I've been to in London, so far. It is huge, multiple floors, great music, not too packed and there is always space, there is face painting, drinks are nice and the staff is very nice, fabulous night out. Very much recommended!

Went to Buttoned Down Disco @ KOKO start of August. Amazing mix of eclectic music, great crowd/atmosphere (LGBTQ friendly!). Balloons, glitter cannons and a dramatic looking venue it's an ex-theatre so very unique night out. Highly recommended!

I had a AWESOME time at Koko!!!! It was my first time attending the venue and I was very impressed. I loved the club's layout and the staff were very courteous and professional. The music was great and the musical acts were off the rail.

This is a really popular place so I guess many knows about it already. Good thing: there are many good free events, the venue is really big and almost always crowded if you like big parties. Bad thing: sticky dirty floor, also too crowded if you are not into it.

Great place to go out clubbing on a Friday with a student discount!! Drinks are cheap, the crowd around the stage is huge and the music is loud...would definitely recommend!!

I was here recently after being offered a ticket for Mr. Scruff, and do have to say that I was impressed with the venue, which is set up like (or possibly once was) a large theatre. Finding your friends across multiple floors and balconies is a bit of a task, but c'est la vie. A huge venue, and so the very large crowd fit in perfectly, and there's plenty of 'wandering space', which I always appreciate. A good night in all, and a return visit in the pipeline.

Came here for the buttoned down disco, was great music and the atmosphere was brilliAnt. Love the venue. The crowd was slightly older perhaps due to the older indie music

I went here for the first time in years and, predictably, felt pretty old (and I'm only 27!) - it's a super young crowd, but it's always gonna be a funny and messy night at Koko.

I've only been here for the nights organised by Buttoned Down Disco and they're the best nights I've ever been to. People dressed up, just having fun. The dancefloor is huge and the music is the best sets I've ever danced to. It's just my thing so me and my bestie always have a crazy night with mad memories.

Great venue to see live bands as it is an old theatre with multiple levels. The main bar is also well stocked and averagely priced. I loved the outdoor street facing terrace on the first floor, plenty of space and there is also a bar upstairs so you don't have to queue up in the main hall. I need to check out one of their club nights I feel a good night coming on!

Love the decor, love the idea of the place, but absolutely hate the weekend club nights. Pretentious and overpriced. But some people love it, I understand why but it just my thing.

What an epic venue in London for watching live music, its an old theatre and is a memorable place to watch your favourite band. Friday night NME club night is a great laugh as well if you want to dance around to indie music!
