GO Live Music in North West London

Live Music in North West London If the miming antics of some of pop’s biggest stars has left you searching for some real live music then head for northwest London to satisfy your craving.

The Forum [map] is one of the top live music venues in the capital and you’ll find it in north west London. The building was once an art deco style cinema but has more recently played host to popular touring artists like The Libertines, Basement Jaxx and the Sisters of Mercy. The other top venue in the area is Underworld, where you’ll mainly find rock acts strutting their stuff on stage.

New bands making their way in north west London’s music world will probably end up in the sticky carpeted back room of the Bull & Gate [map]. The décor maybe dire but here the music is the attraction with multiple guitar wielding bands covering a range of genres practically every night.

With a similar view towards décor the Dublin Castle [map] is a smokey, grungy and just plain loud venue where all the indie kids hangout. However their choice is a good one as this Camden pub is the indie-rock hotspot of the area where you’re sure to find the Brit-poppers of the future.

Also in Camden you’ll find Dingwalls [map] , an intimate venue with the bonus of being able to see the action from wherever you are - the likes of Norah Jones, The Coral and Desmond Dekker have all graced the stage at this venue which plays anything from folk to world beat.

If you like your music smooth and funky then the Jazz Café [map] may be your best bet. Having notched up over a decade of jazz performances from some of the world's leading artists, this bar has a reputation for being one the best live venues in the capital playing jazz, funk world music and more.

Bartok [map] is a free classical music bar close to Chalk Farm tube station where you can enjoy a classy bar ambience with the traditional and contemporary classical music adding to the chic atmosphere.
