Small Dark Loud
Why locals love it
The patrons of this Shoreditch basement know that the only things you really need for a good party is a kicking sound system and a dark room to house it. Plastic People is pretty much exactly that, yet it is a major player in the underground music scene.
Why you should visit it
In an area that is progressively becoming more mainstream, Plastic People remains a true old-school grimy East London venue. It's all about amazing sound in a dark room. Seriously dark, you actually almost can't see, but that's an experience in itself. If you find yourself in Shoreditch, get in there before it fills up. Capacity is minimal.
