The Carling Academy Islington is a music venue in Islington, London, England run by the Academy Music Group. The main venue has a capacity of 800, and the adjacent Bar Academy holds 250.
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 Club, a music and dining venue backed by David A. Stewart of The 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.
