It gets a good selection of musicians and comedians in, so the Olympia's definitely worth going to, but it was a theatre built for an age when people were about the same size as hobbits (if you have a better way to explain why they give you NO leg room, be my guest). Just expect a cramped evening if you're sitting down and over 6 foot, that's all I'm saying.

But that being said, it's a fine venue and you generally feel like you're pretty close to the acts (although be wary of vertigo if you're in the upper circle, you're at a pretty nasty angle to the stage), so if someone you like is on go nuts. And if you want a ticket and can drop into the box office, I recommend you get it there instead of online. Ticketmaster will screw you with fees every time, and if you walk into the box office you can choose where you'd like to sit.

Basically the Olympia is a superb venue for live music (if you're standing that is). It's intimate, yet the crowd is big enough for atmosphere. Views are generally good, and the acoustics are excellent.

That said, if you're seated (particularly higher up) you're essentially looking down at the top of the performers' heads. And if you're even a tiny bit above average height as a man your knees will be cramped up around your nipples. O and the last time I was there I waited half an hour for the cloakroom at the end of the night. No fun.
