A pub and heritage music venue in the heart of Dalston, The Victoria has long maintained a focus on showcasing alt-rockers. Alongside the IRL performers, you'll also find the odd indie club night popping off, with tunes from the Foo Fighters and Nirvana all the way through to Tove Lo and Wolf Alice.

Situated near to Old Street station, it's one of East London's top cultural hubs offering refined indie / rock gig nights during the week and house, techno and electronic parties at weekends, always with impressive line-ups. For a little taster: Friendly Fires, Solange, Simian Mobile Disco, Kink, Mosca, Boddika, and Rustie have all graced the XOYO crowds of late.

Camden Assembly

Formerly the mecca of 00s indie, The Barfly, Camden Assembly has stayed true to its roots and still to this day throws a mean indie disco, from championing the best in unsigned acts and rising talents, to throwback-fuelled club nights that last into the early hours.

One of Camden's favourite live music venues, The Monarch is also known for its club nights. Head down every Friday to hear nothing but the biggest indie anthems as Meet Me In The Bathroom keeps 'em coming until the early hours of the morning.

The Lexington

With indie bangers, post-punk, new wave and classic rock on the agenda, Fridays at The Lexington are the only place any self-respecting indie kids should be. Their club night, White Heat, brings you non-stop tunes until close, and will set you back just a fiver. 

O2 Academy Islington

When it comes to big throwback parties nowhere is doing it better than North London alt-rock pilgrimage, Islington Academy. From the cheesiest tunes to the finest indie anthems, they're sorting you for old school nights out, letting you re-live those formative years.
