As part of the same family as sister venue Omeara, Lafayette is a cut above. Double the size of Omeara at a little over 600 capacity, this spot has the feel of a scale model Shepherd’s Bush Empire but with a sound system on par with the seminal West London venue.
Located within the new Goods Way development for all the food and pre/post show drinks, Lafayette is a musician friendly venue, with its own backstage bar (Nola’s), a sound system that does precisely what you want a sound system to do, and a tech spec to rival venues over twice its size. And it’s a punter friendly one too; impeccable sightlines across the room, a multi-tiered standing balcony, and a venue wide stage allowing you to see all the action wherever you find yourself squeezed between or behind. It’s just a short two minute walk from King’s Cross station, too.
Booked by the Communion Presents team, Lafayette should quickly become the go-to for artists quickly finding their feet and find themselves and their fanbase outgrowing the likes of Omeara.
