Awful service from the Roundhouse bar. Bar staff more interested in chatting amongst themselves than serving paying customers! Shame as this venue is lovely otherwise....and not the cheapest place for a pint either.

I've lived in and close proximity to London for 17 years and this was my first trip to the roundhouse. We saw dj shadow with friends and was never far from the stage. It was a busy and friendly crowd. I'm partially deaf and struggle...More

Outside the glass doors on the pavement/steps. You may also have to queue upstairs outside the inner doors of the concert space itself. Hope this helps.
