There are three bars, two dance floors and a large stage for live performances. We do not assign seats to tickets. There is limited seating on each floor.

Frantic Presents Timeless 18th Birthday - Saturday 21 March 2020
GETTING THERE - By car
There is very limited street parking in Kings Cross. Scala is located in the borough of Camden but is on the boundry road for Islington borough. There are limited parking zones in nearby streets which are free to use after 6.30pm. There are some daytime parking zones which you can pay for.
St Pancras Station has a 24-hour car park open every day of the year with 315 car parking spaces.
GETTING THERE - By London Transport
Scala is a 3 minute walk from Kings Cross Underground Station. Underground lines at this station include Piccadilly, Northern, Victoria, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan and Circle lines.
Scala is a very old building. One of the biggest challenges for those with mobility problems is the various levels throughout the building. Scala is in fact the latin word for stairs.
All stairs have sturdy handrails. There are three steps into reception, 37 steps to the foyer bar, 14 steps to the main arena (54 total), 24 steps from the foyer bar to the toilets (64 total) and a further 23 steps to the balcony bar (87 total).

TAKING PHOTOGRAPHS / USING PHONES
There is no restriction on taking photographs
Bar prices are broadly in line, if not a little cheaper in some cases with other venues in Central London. That means that for those who are not used to Central London night club prices the price of some drinks might be a little higher than you are used to.
