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.

DISABLED ACCESS

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).

BAR

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.
