The North Door
Rising from the spiritual ashes of beloved Nineties club the Electric Lounge, the North Door boasts a similarly eclectic and progressive booking policy. Experimental jazz switches off with alternative rock, while hip-hop and electronica muscle in, too. Taking advantage of its location in the defunct 501 Studios, the ND also hosts plays, poetry readings, comedy, musicals, TV viewings, games, and pretty much anything else you can put under a roof and charge a cover for. The 300-person capacity keeps shows intimate, while the variety of acts makes the age range fluid.
