3:AM Magazine was set up as 3ammagazine.com in April 2000 in the wake of Salon.com and Nerve. Edited from Paris, its editor since inception has been Andrew Gallix.

3:AM sees itself as an extension of publishing traditions forged by the likes of Between C & D and Rebel Inc.. The magazine is notable for the array of articles written by authors themselves. It features interviews with figures from all spheres of cultural activity, particularly cult and transgressive fiction. Authors interviewed more than once include Steve Almond, Billy Childish, Dennis Cooper, Stewart Home, Michael Moorcock and Dan Rhodes. Its outlook and coverage is resolutely post-punk, particularly the emphasis on 'blank generation' authors and elements of 'Prada Meinhof' (for instance Stuart Christie). Most recently it has championed the Brutalists.

In 2004, the editors unsuccessfully tried to prevent the Daily Mirror newspaper from publishing a short-lived 3am Magazine supplement based around its 3am Girls gossip column. The site was also called "suitably roguish for a website that aims to be an online Fitzrovia" by the Daily Telegraph . Its editors include or have included Noah Cicero and Tony O'Neill.

Regular columnists include Sophie Parkin, Ben Myers, Hillary Raphael, and Charles Thomson. Its editors include or have included Noah Cicero, Travis Jeppesen, Tao Lin, Chris Killen, and Tony O'Neill.

An anthology covering its first five years of publishing, The Edgier Waters, was published in Britain by Snowbooks in June 2006, featuring Steve Almond, Bruce Benderson, Michael Bracewell, Tom Bradley, Billy Childish, Noah Cicero, Travis Jeppesen, Tim Parks, Mark Simpson and Kenji Siratori. A volume of new city-themed fiction, 3:AM London, Paris, New York followed in February 2008 (on Social Disease) and featured Chris Cleave, Niven Govinden, Laura Hird, Toby Litt, Nicholas Royle and Matt Thorne.
