The venue, which forms part of the N1 Centre, was purpose built and opened in September 2002. The original occupant was the short lived Marquee N1, a music and dining venue backed by David A. Stewart of Eurythmics and club promoter Mark Fuller.

It re-opened in its current form in September 2003 and is the smallest of the three London venues within the Carling Academy Group.
