MAP (Music, Arts and Print) is a dynamic, creative community space with regular live events, cafe and recording studio located in the beautiful backstreets of Kentish Town, North London. Five mins walk from Kentish Town West Overground and Kentish Town Tube and ten minutes from Camden Town centre.

MAP café offers a range of healthy, home made food, fresh juices, gourmet coffee and beer on tap in a relaxed, homely environment. Our intimate venue space plays host to an eclectic live events programme, featuring live Jazz, World Music, Soul, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Folk Music, DJs and film nights. We also hire out the space for private functions, film locations and corporate events. Clients include Rihanna, 20/20 Productions, Sky TV and The Green Party.

Established in 1992, starting out as a recording studio, record label and streetwear clothing brand, MAP has worked with artists such as Dawn Penn, Goldie, Roots Manuva and Junior Delgado.

The recording studio offers a unique creative space with a great selection of vintage and modern equipment, offering recording, mixing, production and location recording services. The venue is wired to the studio giving the option of recording live events. Hip-hop radio station, Itch FM also broadcasts from the premises.
