KOKO (previously called The Music Machine and Camden Palace) is a concert venue and former theatre in Camden Town, London, England. The building was known as Camden Palace from 1982 until its 2004 purchase and extensive restoration led by Oliver Bengough and Mint Entertainment. Since, the club has been known as KOKO and serves as one of the premier live music venues in London.KOKO is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.
A large fire at the building during renovation work was reported at 20:56 on 6 January 2020; eight fire engines and about 60 firefighters attended, and the blaze was declared under control at 2:37. The cause of the fire is not known as of 7 January 2020, but the damage appears to have been contained to the roof of the building.
It was our first time to go clubbing in London and we decided to go to KOKO and I can say for sure that it was a great choice! This place has enough space for dancing, however not so much smoking area available. I can't blame it because we heard they're closing for renovation. I can see how this venue can be amazing for concerts! Will come back again next year to check out renovation :)
Stunning old theatre. There are traditional viewing boxes with curtains along the walls and stalls on the floor. Everything is very red, and the sloping, smooth-walled corridors felt like we were walking through blood vessels. Great view of the stage from centre of the the top balcony. Bars on each floor. Hope it stays open as it's a nice music venue.
