With its phenomenal stage and unparalleled sightlines, Electric Brixton offers a truly perfect setting for large scale events, live music, television recordings, private parties & special art events.
The MAIN ROOM has retained the theatrical structure, with the ground floor and stage overlooked by a mezzanine gallery, which helps lend this large space an intimate atmosphere. Original features have been retained wherever possible, and the striking shades of blue & gold add to the grandiose classical look whilst modern touches throughout (gilded banquettes, disco ball chandelier, sleek furniture & contemporary bars) bring the lavish décor up to date. The room is framed by two large bars and features a separate VIP area with occasional seating.
Electric Brixton boasts a capacity of 1,500 for live shows and 1,700 for receptions or club events – and can also accommodate dinners (180 pax), presentations (250 / 300 pax) & showcases (100 – 1,000).
Adjacent to the main hall, the BABY ROOM (with a capacity of 150) – has its own separate sound system & bar and can operate either as an extension of the main space, as a secondary event space or even as a VIP area.
The long-standing live music heritage of the venue means it is particularly well set-up in terms of loading access. There’s a vast backstage area and access to three dressing rooms, a production office and a technical manager help to make the planning of live shows and events as smooth as possible.
A full front of house team (security, box office, cloakroom, bar staff, floor staff, sound & light technicians and duty managers) is part of the hire package. Other notable facilities of the venue are a dedicated catering back-of house room and the off-street smoking terrace.
The venue operates a license until 4am Monday to Thursday, and a 24h license on weekends.
