A new venue is set open in the heart of a historic part of Camden this summer. Camden Courtyard, who will officially launch on Friday, July 5, is the Electric Ballroom owners' latest venture.

The 300 capacity, open-air space is being built on newly repurposed land behind Electric Ballroom on Kentish Town Road. It will offer an eclectic music programme with day parties, DJs, themed brunches and boasts a Martin Audio sound system

Kate Fuller, one of the owner of Electric Ballroom, said: "For the best part of a century, Electric Ballroom has been a venue which showcases the most exciting of musical movements and Camden Courtyard is the next step in our story. The venue will offer something new for Camden, an area that has surprisingly few open air locations for drinking, dining and dancing.

"We’re working with a great selection of forward thinking promoters, DJs and food & drink brands and we can’t wait to welcome new faces and regulars alike."

Now ready for an epic summer, Camden Courtyard has been fitted with a top-of-the-range Martin Audio sound system - which can be covered so the weather doesn't spoil things. On the music front, a mix of artists, DJs, bands and brands has been carefully curated, including house and techno specialists FreeFromSleep, garage-dogs UKG Brunch, eclectic Midnight Runners, deep, progressive and melodic crew Colorize and underground band Ketoloco, who are getting the party started.

And to keep you fuelled, street food pioneers Pizza & Dumplings, famous across the capital for their wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas and hearty Gyozo dumplings, will be serving up tasty dishes. Wray & Nephew will also be on hand to serve rum-glazed cocktails.

Add to that classics like Aperol Spritz, Pimms cocktails, pitchers and an extensive beer, wine and cocktail list. In short, everything has been done to ensure you have everything you need to escape city life.

The Camden Courtyard is located at 23 Kentish Town Road, Camden Town, NW1 8NH.
