Important Information

New Guidelines at Pirate Camden

DJs going back-to-back using Pirate Studios DJ equipment
  • You need to register the names of all your guests when you make your booking – you’ll be prompted to do this when you make your next booking. Security will be checking everyone’s ID (including yours) at the entrance and if someone hasn’t been registered or doesn’t have ID on them, they won’t be allowed into the building.
  • Under 18's are not permitted onsite after 9pm.
  • Camden’s opening hours are now 9am-11pm. When you finish your session, please leave the area as quietly and quickly as you can. Any noise may be filmed by neighbours and used against Pirate.
  • There will be no alcohol allowed in the studios. Security will be performing bag searches at the entrance to the site and any alcohol will be removed.
  • Anyone caught with drugs in the studios will be reported directly to the police and removed from the building.

We really appreciate everyone doing their bit to help keep Pirate Camden safe for everyone. We don’t expect these measures to be in place forever, but right now, it’s really important that you respect our neighbours.

what3words location: ///debit.bound.title

The studio address is 23-25 Hampshire Street, London NW5 2TE. Get directions via Google Maps.

The main entrance is on Hampshire Street, with the studio entrance up a short flight of interior stairs. For this reason, we are sorry to inform you that the studios are not fully accessible. However, our two alternative North London locations — Wembley (mostly accessible) and Tottenham (fully accessible) — are.

Coming by public transport? The studios are a 15-minute walk from the closest station, Kentish Town — a 20-minute tube journey from Oxford Circus. Buses 29, 253, N29, N235 and N279 all stop nearby on Brecknock Road; a five-minute walk away.

Driving or cycling? We do not have dedicated parking spaces for your car or bike, but there's plenty of paid public spaces on Hampshire Street and in the surrounding neighbourhood. Please be aware of any parking restrictions in order to avoid parking fines.
