The Corsica Studios Guestlist and Table Bookings
Corsica Studios is an independent arts organization where you can enjoy a variety of music nights, a night gallery and so much more. This venue is home to many of the capital’s finest events, parties and club nights.
Corsica Studios is situated beneath two railway arches and has a total capacity of about 500, which is spread across all areas. The live music and bar area will accommodate about 300 people and the smaller studio about 150. There is also a large terrace and smoking area to the rear of the venue, which is always entertaining in terms of random chats and silent discos. The license for entertainment and alcohol generously runs until 3am from Sunday to Thursday and 6am on Friday and Saturdays.
Corsica Studios feels more like a warehouse than a formal nightclub thanks to its arched railway location, and therefore comes across as less uptight than a lot of the commercialized clubs you may encounter throughout London. Elephant & Castle isn’t the sort of place that captures passing trade and Corsica Studios is definitely a real diamond in the rough. The fact that it’s off the beaten track in an unfashionable area of south London means that it is frequented by people who truly know their music and have made a mini-pilgrimage to pay homage to their dedication. The venue is run by an organisation that converts spaces in creative areas. It is a non-profit organisation meaning that all the takings from the cloakroom and bar are put together to support wholesome London regeneration.
Corsica Studios constantly represents the best in left field and underground music. The London venue holds a reputation as a mainstay of innovative electronic music. Expect anything from house, techno and bass, including a mesmerizing mixture of all three (post-dubstep). Regular nights include UK garage throwback rave THEM, Bill Brewster's
(DJ History, Last Night A DJ Saved My Life) superior house and disco party Lowlife, and genre-blurring Trouble Vision.
The worlds leading underground music show Boiler Room is also broadcast live across the world on a weekly basis from Corsica Studios. Boiler Room showcases the true superstars in underground EDM from Thom Yorke, Four Tet and Nathan Fake to Mathew Dear, Caribou, Richie Hawtin and Jamie XX. It continues to grow with all of the latest DJs wanting to host a 45-minute set in the south London club on a Tuesday night. The events are strictly invite only but with a web cam pointing towards the DJ, an invited crowd of underground dance-music scenesters standing behind, a relaxed vibe and a worldwide audience watching in their bedrooms, Boiler Room certainly caters for everyone’s needs and live up to it’s hype.
Drinks are reasonably priced unlike the £5 a beer in many super clubs. Continental beers dominate including Stella, Budvar, Peroni (£3.50), and Modelo (£3.75). Spirit and mixers are £3.50 or £5.50 a double, a glass of wine is £3.50, while shots (sambuca, tequila, Jagermeister) are £3.
