Came here for the 1st time to see artist/rapper "noname". I was greeted by friendly security who checked my bag before going into the venue. The area had atmosphere felt very in control the sound, scene and lighting was good. The crowd was well behaved. The crowd staff offered cups of water before the main act came on stage which I thought was considerate even though I didn't feel hot because the venue was well ventilated. I enjoyed my time at the O2. and loved the decor it was clean inside and didn't have a beer smell. I recommend this place for an intimate gig. Only disappointment the act on stage could of been longer although there was an encore which was a delight to the crowd.
Very good music and entertainment venue. We saw Bill Bailey live here. Was an exceptional show fairly priced. Well organised event facility. Staff are experts in their field. Drinks a little pricey. Well worth seeing a band or show here.
