This place was a great visit. I would not have known about it were it not for a local friend showing me around. This place is where you can get all your neon needs for parties and what not. No pictures are allowed inside and I can understand why.
Amazing place! This shop is like nothing else around in country.
Rather expensive, but quite exclusive. Of course, most of the stuff is buyable on internet, but you get to try the stuff just there in place!
GoGo dancers on the pols, dance club music all along. Jeyzus OMG! Spectacular :)
Interesting to know, that filming and taking pictures is strictly not permitted.
You must pay a visit to this place no matter what!
I never thought that cyberpunk clothing is so multitextured. My usual "go to" cyberpunk store, Cryoflesh seems quite different. It seems more gothic. The clothing at Cyberdog is more of the ravers and the "5th Element" variety of clothing as far as style goes. A great deal of the clothing is futuristic. Like for example their saucer dresses that they have in the ladies section. They are so cool! I want to look like the female characters in the Jetsons!
Cyberdog also has lots of awesome t-shirts for men and women, many of the designs are set up for UV lighting.
There is also of kinds of accessories and rave gear to pour through as well.
Thus far I have gotten two t-shirts from Cyberdog. The clothes are made by this company alone so it is unlikely you can get the same shirt elsewhere for a cheaper price. One thing that makes this all the more evident is the Cyberdog logo on each article of clothing.
From what I understand, even for London, Cyberdog is extremely expensive. The t-shirts don't cost much more than they do here in the states unless you get one that has LED lights in it. Then you are looking at about fifty bucks worth. And that Jetsons dress? If my calculations are correct at all it is somewhere in the three hundred dollar range.
Despite the priceyness of the place you can still probe around and still get something unique and fun without being too outrageous in price.
One of my t-shirts is the Ravespotting t-shirt. A rave inspired version of Trainspotting is the logo going on with this shirt. My other tee the graphic is Indian influenced where the UV gal has multi arms stretched out with big old headphones all the while in a tranquil sitting position. I love these shirts!
Cyberdog also has a spin off store called Futurelovers which is an adult oriented store with all kinds of fun, kinky pieces of merchandise. Yes, it is expensive as well.
Great place to buy birthday gifts. Broken in 3 levels. The first floor is a fairly tame one, almost as if testing your resolve to go further, the second one full of rave garb and accessories, and the last floor for adults.
The clothes are ridiculously expensive, but it's kind of like, "oh my goodness, people can actually wear this?!" all around. Unfortunately, no pictures allowed inside.
I'm not sure how to really describe the place other than "interesting" and the mecca for all rave goods, but if you even remotely like techno, sci-fi, or raves, just walking through the place is pretty much an experience and party in itself. Employees are hilarious and dress in all sorts of crazy outfits.
How to get here: we walked through Camden Town, but it's actually slightly closer through Chalk Town. Can't miss Stables Market, and once you enter just follow your ears and eyes. Do you see that gigantic robot and music pumping obnoxiously?
By the way, the t-shirts are powered through Arduino; I think I may pick up a kit and try to program one myself!
You can't miss this shop in the Stables Market. It's the loud, noise pumping daytime club that sells all your rave wear essentials and more. Check out all the lights and robots.
This is a must see if you're in the Camden or Stables Market area. It's a non-stop party at all times. We seriously thought it was a bumping party, and we had to head in until we discovered it was a shop! Explore all three floors because they have put a lot of detail into everything from floor to ceiling. There's robots, LED lights everywhere, glowing merchandise and club-attired staff.
There were even go-go platforms in the shop; they must have go-go dancers sometimes. This place is pretty cool. It has goods for every different type of clubber. The bottom floor is for the fetish and bondage fanatics.
Go in and check it out.
The new but sadly not improved Cyberdog has opened to the public. The new location almost directly in front of the stables entrance on Chalk Farm Road is striking with the two, twenty foot robots stationed outside. The irresistible charm of the old Cyberdog clearly wanes once you are inside the new site though. The old store was quirky, enchanting and the dark neon tunnels really added to that otherworld feel. The new store is much more spacious and still has the bangin (yes there shouldn't be a g) techno and neon décor. Although still very funky and worth a visit, the new Cyberdog has lost its status of being a must see place to simply becoming a very cool clothes store.
In regards to the clothes I agree with Bridget M, Cyberdog clothing doesn't really work with anything other than Cyberdog clothing. Still if cyber wear is your thing, (steady on you web junkies) the big C dog is still the best in the business.
I own a few pieces from Cyberdog. Mostly tops. I like this store because they have unique clothing and accessories that I can't find anywhere else. They might be pricey but I think it's nice to have something hardly anyone else has and I deserve to splurge once in a while on myself. I work hard!
I will say that the sizes seem to fit and look better on petite or thin girls I'm about 5'3" and 110 pounds. Even most of the models on their website are petite.
It would be nice if the clothing looked and fit better on girls of bigger sizes
Most of the clothing and accessories are neon bright. There are some plain colors (black) . I also love the pinstriped designs.
They also have makeup, headphones,contact lenses, jewelry, toys and more!
Unique clothing and accessories for men women and children.
Funky bright colors
Great for clubbing
A bit pricey
Might be out of the size you want when you want it.
material might not suit you or fit properly if you are a bigger size
it's hard to pair with clothing other than Cyberdog, can sometimes look silly
I want to dress up as an extra from The Fifth Element but where oh where can I find such an outfit? oh and it has to be blacklight sensitive.
Oh hi cyberdog!
My friend and I were at stables market looking for some desserty treats when we walked by the shop. She told me I HAD to see this place. Very random spot in the market, in a corner of the food court area.
Before we even walk in, this neon girl with dread locks, tutu and black thong came out for a cigarette and to bend down and moon us apparently (turns out she worked there). They were blasting raver, techno music and it was dimly lit. Cute kitchy things, electronic fun gadgets. This place is huge actually. Explore the sites! If anything it's an interesting place to spend a few minutes in while you're at stables market.
The very bottom floor is the "adult section". Kind of like extra kinky Good Vibrations.
And despite all the non shopping I didn't feel like the sales people were wanting me to leave and make room for real raver customers. So that was nice.
How to review cyberdog ???
To me it's not exactly a shop. When I first visited London as a grown man a couple years ago, my friend took me for a walk in Camden market. Great idea. We finished the tour with Cyberdog. I did the same later with other friends and I advised people to go check it.
What if Leeloo from The Fifth Element had a business like Willy Wonka? Giant robots would be welcoming you at the front door and already you'd ear techno music all around. Cage dancers in fluorescent lights keep your attention. Take the stairs down and you're on for a tour of a futuristic factory where items seems to be designed for next century folks. The shop assistants are wearing extravagant gears and often dance between the aisles. Well, that's Cyberdog.
From a tourist point of view it is an awesome place. No shop like this exist in Paris and just looking at the items is worth it.
Only 4 stars though, it's kind of expensive for stuff you may just use once.
The bad: It's ridiculously expensive....even for London.
The good: Awesome clothes, fun accessories, excellent music, polite employees. They even have stuff for kids -- if it didn't cost so damn much, I'd have bought some mini-raver gear for my nephew. The stuff here all appears to be of very high quality.
I wish we had a place like this in the States. Cyberdog is a one-stop spot for all your rave stuff, from glowsticks to clothes....trying to get everything you need for an "electronic music festival" in the US is a pain in the ass!
They do have an online store though....just sayin.
Everything you could want and more if you're a club kid. CDs, flyers, djs on saturdays. The best pre party and way to get pumped up before a night out.
Is it weird and loud? Absolutely.
Could you get some nice formal wear there? Probably not.
2 peices of advice if you're looking for some place quiet, refined and "normal."
First: get the fuck out of camden, Second: Take the tube to oxford circus and head to your nearest Top Shop or Next
Bring earplugs. I loved the music, but it was loud.
The girls' clothing sections were amazing: dresses, overalls, rompers, booty shorts, shrugs, microkilts and all other manner of item in one-of-a-kind, brightly colored, UV-reactive patterns. Sizes fit a bit slim, so definitely try on before buying. The men's department was a little less impressive, consisting mostly of t-shirts, albeit some interesting ones.
The male employees seemed a bit cool for school, but the female ones were all very friendly and helpful. The dressing stalls are small but workable and they didn't get irritated with repeat visits like at some stores.
Little expensive, but totally unique.
You enter the Cyberdog and quickly lose your eardrums to the massive bass blasting techno raver music. That's where the fun begins.
Chances are that if you're there with your mates you'll probably be pointing things out to each other and laughing the entire time. Thank good ness that the employees here don't mind it at all. We spent a good 15 minutes just staring at all the oddities, my only regret is not trying on one of the ridiculous bright neon dress things.
Ha. Ha. Ha
i'm not really sure what else to say about this except it's definitely an experience that shouldn't be missed @ Camden Market.
Akin to a club on a busy Saturday night
Cybergod is bloody hilarious, if I am ever in the area I WILL go in and I WILL laugh at the products. I will never buy anything, but I will laugh very hard. The music pumping from the speakers is not actually music, but torturous industrial muck with booming bass. Hurts to listen to, but is good to add to the amusement of the place.
I am a very liberal person, but cyberdog is just ridiculous. Who are these people? How can they wear pure plastic? It must be damaging their sweat pores and their nervous system. And all that neon make up cannot be good for the skin. The staff are perfect examples of this place's ideal customers. Who must be loaded if they can afford anything in there because it is very expensive. The t-shirts with electronic moving logos which you can set yourself are particularly ugly and pointless.
My friend came to a club night here once and said it was mental, but that the emphasis on cyber goth fashion was so intense that no one in there was actually wearing anything from cyberdog, because even cyberdog is too mainstream for their look. Wowzers.
I wouldn't shop here, but this place is definitely worth the experience of a visit.
They play really hard industrial techno that you can hear 100 yards away, and as soon as you walk in, there are people dancing at the entrance. I am not sure if they work there or if they are just customers raving in the store.
They have a lot of really cool gear to wear in a club environment, but a lot of it just seems so novelty and not really practical.
Even though I have been here several times and never purchased anything, this place gets five stars for originality. Overall, this is a place that just needs to be checked out if you ever visit Camden Town.
When I first saw the average of 3.5 stars I was baffled and almost though I found the wrong Cyber Dog.
This place is like walking into a Techo Rave convention. One level doesn't even need lighting from the literally glowing merchandise.
Even if this is all the glorious Camden Market had to offer I'd still give my whole Camden experience five stars.
All these reviews make me miss London!!
I'd give them 4 stars for the schlock value.
Going to Cyberdog is more of an event that a fulfilling shopping experience, unless you want to buy the same Cyberdog outfit that everyone has. (I've found their clothing is pretty damn hard to pair with anything not Cyberdog)
When I first went there (in 2001) I thought it was the coolest place ever. It had this awesome art installation in the front that was almost Gierger-esque, people doing the robot, an astonishingly hot staff, banging techno, and lots of bright neon clothing emblazoned with the Cyberdog Logo.
When I went back a few years later, it was the same damn thing, same designs, and most of the other vendors in Camden were copying them for a fraction of the price.
Sooo, go to -see- Cyberdog, but if you like the styles and aren't a label-whore, check out the other vendors to see what they have.
Picked up a few pieces here for NYE with Dash Berlin and Ferry Corsten.
Disappointed with their limited offering of performance-grade glow and LED gear, a helpful staffer was kind enough to refer me to a popular website for glow poi, high-output glowsticks and other accessories. These guys know their stuff - awesome.
What can i say? Cyberdog is a shop for ravers, by ravers. Having bought various items from them i can safely say this is the ultimate in shopping. cyberdog are unique- the shop doesn't look like your average clothes gaff. Cyberdog looks like something from the future. absolutely fantastic store and actually good value for money. Go see for yourself! :)
This place is crazy, amusing and just plain hysterical.
Here you will find an interesting range of futuristic fashion, cybercafe, works of technological art with pounding Techno music blaring from the speakers! worth a look for entertainment value if not to pick up some funky alternative clubbing gear! Whenever I have friends visiting I try and bring them here for the fun factor.
I remember when i was young, watching programmes about the early 90's rave culture, the pumping techno music and the ridiculous outfits. I'd always be watching, eyes wide with wonder and disbelief. When i first walked into this shop, nestled in the North corner of Camden Market i felt exactly the same. The music is SO loud, the staff have multi colour hair, fluorescent facial piercings, and enjoy the music a lot dancing around the shop-floor-come-dancefloor.
The array of clothes on offer is fantastic - they even have a section of baby clothes?! Its all about colour, moving slogan tee shirts, lights and bass. It's a little bit scary, and not my scene at all, but it's a true spectacle and a must visit, at least once, when you're in Camden.
I'm assured they have an amazing selection of techno, house and trance cd's and vinyls on offer.
Upon entering Cyberdog, I wasn't sure if I had entered a clothing shop or the Science Museum. The store itself looks like it borrowed it's interior design from a post-apocalyptic cargo spacecraft. Blade Runner meets Alien vs. Aeon Flux.
Cyberdog make their their own line of clothing, which is sometimes called "futurepop", "cybergoth" or just plain raving maniacal. I mean this in a good sense - if you're looking for the most unique piece of clothing you can find, you'll probably find it here. Trousers with interesting forms and cuts, T-shirts and camisoles with well thought out prints and creative sewing techniques.
I've got to hand it to them, despite the fact that I had been working designing prints for a fashion company which sells it's wares right opposite from Cyberdog and is a direct competitor (plazmalab.com) , I take off my hat to the creative designers at Cyberdog. You lot have been doing a wonderful job.
As for the prices at Cyberdog, well, they're steep. The creativity of the design and the good construction of the clothing are worth, however, every penny.
Very recommended for both enthusiasts and the curious.
Ever since I was old enough to remember smoking pot under the lock, getting into rave music and bandying around glow sticks like sparklers I have affirmatively loved this shop.
You'd bring your mum here when you were trying to explain bizarre teenage tendencies, you'd bring visiting tourists here when trying to show off the diversity and ubiquitous fashion of London, you'd bring your lover/partner/kiss chase buddy here when trying to sneak a cheeky session in one of those futuristic, cylindrical changing booths that were never kind to unshaved legs or badly pedicured toes.
Although it's fair to day they haven't updated their centralised website in light years, this site cyberdog.net/about.html still gives a broader indication of the virtual frenetic world of Cyberdog, its cult following and the robotic clothing/random accessories and music this outfit bring to the stratosphere. With earth stations in São Paulo, Manchester, Ibiza, Basel and of course battlestation Camden Town, you'd be ill-advised to stay on planet earth and miss this experience.
As a brief aside, I tried to blag a part time Sales Advisor job at the Covent Garden branch (negative, not enough piercings). I've popped into past stores in Amsterdam and Leeds (which really didn't work), but for a true taste of London, whatever your musical and lifestyles preferences, it would be criminal not to immerse yourself in this virtual reality.
wowwwww I'm crazy for this AMAZING shop in Camden!!!
Every time I come to London I buy a crazy shirt here.
Not so cheap, but it's a pleasure spend to have special clothes!!! well done baby.
Boom, Boom, Boom, tss, Boom, Boom Boom
Expect Hard House blaring at you, fluro costumes and cyber gear all around, robots, dancing girls in fluffy mini skirts and bras. Space, flashing lights and loud, loud music.
Cyberdog is great, it's more like a club than a shop, except without quite as many gurning casualties.
I wouldn't go for the clothes but it's definitely on my list of places to pop in if I'm up at Camden Market, and it certainly wakes you up after wandering through patchouli scented fabric emporiums.
I'm unsure whether to rate Cyberdog with 3 or 4 stars, but I'll go with the latter simply by the virtue of the fact that they're so damn unique. Maybe not anymore, but I've heard the store is as old as time.
Crazy? Yes. It used to be the end of my weekly pilgrimage to Camden Town when I lived over yonder, a giant, blisteringly bright neon sign attracting the freakish and the alternative and those who come for cheap laughs.
Cheap? This place is not. The clothing is fucking expensive, and I'm not just talking as an American living off the GBP (which was, back then, a 2:1 rate with USD). Just buying a t-shirt cost an arm and a leg, so I stuck mostly to buying the more moderately priced accessories: everything from beanies to wrist cuffs, headbands to armwarmer "gauntlets." People on Yelp can tout about how ridiculous and plastic everything seems, but that's the style, and haters gonna hate, whatever. Neon, satin, parachute pants, and skintight tops. I love it. Say what you will, but some of the designs and ideas for their apparel are really fun and interesting and weird. Everything from shirts with neon plastic "armor" to poofy ring skirts like something out of the 1950s.
This place is tailor made for ravers, gravers, and cybergoths. But knowing goths, they won't touch the place. Still, it's fun just for the experience of going in and sitting under enough blacklights to make human skin glow. There's ambient electronic music playing, robots for mannequins, and you'll be rung up by people who probably spend more time doing hair and makeup than you spend sleeping.
Fun times, Camden Town. Fun times.
This place is so crazy!
It has an nteresting range of futuristic fashion, cyber-cafe, works of technological art. Techno music constantly blares from the speakers! worth a look for entertainement value if not to pick up some funky alternative clubbing gear!
Cyberdog is located in the heart of the Camden Market. Where you are near you can hear the music coming from inside. Once inside this shop is really a different experience. The staff is dressed with colourful clothes and nice haircuts and the clothes are difficult to define. I like more the men collection that has some nice, punk clothes with neon colours and nice designs. The women clothes are more cheesy but there are some items that are really nice as for example the trousers. They have a range of t-shirts that had an screen displaying different images.
The dressing rooms are capsules very impressing.
The prices are not cheap but they have sometimes reductions.
I LOOoooooVE CyberDog. Its clothes are amazing and so different to any other cyber wear range out there.
I am a fellow raver so i can appreciate the clothes fro many different levels. Even if you are NOT a raver you will still LOVE the gear in the shop.
Everyday wear, crazywear, raverwear and Superduper stuff for everything else!!
I recommend you go there / here if you are in London and havent heard of it before.
DO IT!! :)
This is a one of the most bizarre shop in the bizarre Camden market. It's guarded by 2 gigantic robots in the entrance. The techno trance music was broadcasted so loudly and notoriously that they should be handing out hearing aid to customers on the way out!! The staff speaks well to the type of customers they're selling to, the neon pierced face and funky outfit. I mean.. they even dance around the shop as if this is really a rave party. Quite hilarious.
Jesus H Christ is this old dog still going. This was and is like some form of hell on earth. It was tacky back then and remains a kind of euro trash rave mistake. Call the vet and put the dog down.
I'm stuck in San Francisco, so I've only shopped online... the first time I ever visited the website must have been 98 or 99, and I still love Cyberdog just as much today. Please come to California!
I have shopped at CyberDog 12 times in the past 10 years and everything I ever purchased still looks as good as it did when I first wore the items. What does that say? Do you shopping here. The prices are higher because the clothing lasts forever.
I have been a fan of Cyberdog clothes for many years, probably since the days I used to go to Pendragon and Return to the Source / Escape from Samsara every weekend in the 90s. Whenever I go to Camden market (about three or four times a year), I always make a point of visiting Cyberdog.
This is more because it's such a fab place than for the clothes, as sadly, very little actually fits me. I have a 40" waist, a stomach I have carefully invested in over many years of beer-quaffing, and an 18+" collar and I am 6'2" tall. Not your typical raver size. Trousers rarely are found in sizes over L though occasionally you pick up the odd T-shirt which is XL which just about fits me (although I can look a bit sausagey in certain lights).
I tend to buy only sale items largely because I'm a bit of cheapskate when it comes to clothes. I baulk at the idea of paying £50 for a pair of plastic trousers, even if they do look kinda cool under UV lighting. As for shirts, well £30 seems excessive to me. However, go during the sale and you'll pick up some fabulous stuff from as little as £5. So, amazingly, I actually have about 10 Cyberdog shirts in my wardrobe, and they all get quite a lot of wear. But it's only on those odd occasions that there is something XL that actually fits me and is in the sale!
This is more than a shop. You have pounding dance music, people in cages dancing on the walls, several floors of all sorts of things you never thought you need, a sex-shop for those people who enjoy watching their anal love-beads glow in the dark, and it seems to get bigger and bigger every time I go there. My main criticism is that in their music section they appear to be stocking a lot less psytrance than they used to, and their flyer selection has gone downhill.
Let's get this straight before I go on, I have never and, with luck, will never in the future purchase anything from Cyberdog. But I'll continue to visit, completing a lap of the cave-like neon-lit interior and laughing my head off as I go, every time I happen to be in Camden Lock market. Do people really wear this stuff? Has the world gone mad? Can this banging sound really be classified as music? These are the geriatric questions in my head as I observe the crazy patterns and polystyrene lumps coming out of the clothes, mannequins and shop assistants. Visit on the weekend and with luck you'll catch the live rave dancer, doing his 'stack the shelves' thang on top of the counter. Not a shop, but an anthropological museum!
This place is awesome. The size of the selection on offer is awe-inspiring, with a hugely deep shop that blares massively loud rave music and lures me in from about 300 metres. The clothes they sell there are right out of the 1990's days of rave - I would expect most of the clothes on sale to have little pockets to hold your MDMA or Ecstasy... the colours are neon and glow in the dark, with UV lights on the ceilings to emphasise these properties in the clothes. The range varies from fantastic and wacky to some much more regular stuff, if only a little bit dark and alternative... The theme is definitely space, with a huge model of a spaceship found at the far end of the shop, covered in flashing lights and 'levitating'! On wires, that is.. The staff were mohaicaned, pierced demons who my girlfriend was terrified by. Me too, but you wouldn't catch me TELLING her that...
I remember my first visit in Cyperdog around..seven years ago. Goosh! That was when I was a country girl visiting the big city and overwhelmed by about everything and I remember thinking this store was beyond anything I have ever seen. All the rave culture with the neon colors, obscure pvc clothes and the pumping techno, oh boy I was impressed.
I went to visit the place again just while ago. It was still the same. I mean I felt sad for it. Something that used to be something, is still the same old! During the seven years no progress with the designs, that actually looking now seemed so poor, and no change with the neon colors, with the piercings, nothing. All still there. What happened with the imagination? Boo. Not impressed anymore.
I've visited this location several times... The clothes aren't really my style, but it is kind of fun to visit. The clothes are way crazy (rave/cyber-punk), way bright and way over priced! It doesn't seem like the fashions in the store have changed much from my first visit over 10 years ago. I also visited their store in Tokyo... I don't know how they can survive.
Very expensive, very loud, and very worth seeing. It's a shame they don't allow cameras inside, as it's a heck of a show, from the go go bikini dancers to the live DJ. If you are coming to Camden Locks to people watch, it's a must. If you're coming to buy, bring a big wallet, because the stuff is NOT cheap. However, it's worth it for the fun factor.
