Launching in January 2014 XOYO present the residency series. In one year, four huge talents will play 12 consecutive Saturdays each. We want to put the spotlight on the true art of DJing, to have one DJ soundtrack our Saturday nights. For 12 weeks this will be the resident’s home and we hope yours too. Though not a new concept, it’s one that we feel is missing from present day Clubland – where the resident DJ isn’t a side-thought but the headliner. Our first resident is one of the most-respected DJs around right now; a name we feel will do justice to the role of a resident. We’re proud to announce Eats Everything will be XOYO’s first ever resident. Eats will play the beginning (Sat 11th Jan) and last parties of his quarter and every date in between he’ll be joined by a long-line of friends, friends that also happen to be some of dance music’s biggest and best. Hold tight for full line-up announcements in December.

Night Train has quick become one of London’s most talked about parties. Tonight it chugs into town once again with the second helping of the Underground & Friends residency featuring Finnebassen, Pete Oak, Hannah Holland and Warboy. Headlining on the club’s famed Flipside sound system will be Norway’s Finnebassen who has been riding high in the download charts recently with his debut smash hit 'Touching me’. The guitar you hear in many Finnebassen tracks is Finn himself playing: a note to his true understanding of music, but it is his own version of silky smooth house that most impresses. As well as regularly playing at massive Oslo night spots Jaeger and The Villa, Finnebassen also has regular gigs worldwide, with recent visits to Berlin, Greece, Brazil and many appearances around the UK just to name a few. Specialising in the deep house and nu-disco genres, Pete Oak is an emergent talent with much more to offer than your average performer. He has released an envious array of tracks on various labels including Eklektisch, petFood Recordings, Deso Records and Electronique Digital. His debut EP ‘Slow Groove Sex Moves’ released by Sleazy Deep encapsulates his sultry and sexy sound. Hannah Holland, meanwhile, has been in the scene for over 10 years with a unique techno electro sound which is driven by her love BASS. Her label, Batty Bass has gone from strength to strength whilst Hannah’s own productions and remixes take in O.Children, Terry Farley and Dan Beaumont, DJ Hell, Pilocka Krack, Planning To Rock, The Deadstock 33's. Night Train resident and main man Warboy also plays this killer Night Train party and ensures that all electronic bases are covered once more.

Kettner’s has lived, surviving four kings and a queen, the blitz, several booms and more than a few busts, Kettner’s has seen it all and is an integral part of the vibrant, glamorous and debauched Soho we know and love today. Originally a series of four Georgian town houses, Kettner’s was first opened as a restaurant by Auguste Kettner, (chef to Napoleon III) in 1867. Popular with deliciously colourful characters of the time including Oscar Wilde, Edward VII, Lillie Langtry, Agatha Christie and Bing Crosby, Kettner’s was renowned for hosting incredibly risqué parties. Gorgeously glamorous, Kettner’s today boasts an all day Brasserie, Cocktail and Champagne Bar and eight Private Rooms. The Grade II listed building retains much of the original architecture, creating an intimate, homely feel, whilst a recent refurbishment has lovingly restored the space for a modern audience. Kettner’s elegant 1930’s style Brasserie serves Modern European dishes all day with a range of menus to suit all occasions. Kettner’s is situated in the heart of theatre land and the Set Menu is the perfect choice at lunch and for pre and post theatre dining. Live music from Tuesday to Saturday on a beautiful white grand piano sets the evening ambience. The Cocktail and Champagne Bar has an innovative cocktail menu inspired by the characters and legends of Kettner’s scandalous past. There is also a huge a range of over one hundred champagnes, with eleven served by the glass. The bar has two bookable ‘nooks’ for small groups; the Blue Nook and the Skylight Nook. Amongst Kettner’s eight private spaces are the two showcase spaces; The Apartment and The Salle De Fête. The Apartment has a members club feel with a secret entrance on Greek Street. The space draws inspiration from a French film director’s lair, with wooden panelled walls, comfy ‘casting’ couches, a bespoke drinks cabinet and a grand piano. The Salle De Fête has an elegant, light and airy penthouse feel and comprises three open spaces; The Salle, The Attic Bar and The Den. Kettner’s also has a variety of smaller rooms which are perfect for meetings and private dining. Don your finest, (or your favourite old cardigan,) and drink, dine and revel with us at Kettner’s.

The Pheasantry is an historic Georgian building originally used to raise pheasants for the royal household. It's had many distinguished residents including Australian artist Martin Sharp, Augustus John and Annigoni. Famous ballerina Serafima Alexandrovna Astafieva opened her school here on the first floor in 1916 (her son Slava married a pupil). She taught prima ballerinas Alicia Markova and Margot Fonteyn here. It was also the home of Eleanor Thornton, thought to have been the model for The Spirit of Ecstasy mascots on the bonnets of Rolls Royce cars. Dylan Thomas used to drink here when it was a club in the 1930's. In 1976 the six-year campaign to save The Pheasantry from dereliction reached a peak. Under the patronage of Sir John Betjeman, the Friends of The Pheasantry wanted the building restored with residential studios, an art gallery, and exhibition space. They were not successful in preventing the adjoining development, but the front and gateway of the Pheasantry survived, heavily restored, as part of the rebuilding of 1971-81, forming a restaurant hemmed in by shops and offices. The Pheasantry nightclub was the venue for early UK gigs by Lou Reed, Queen (band) and Hawkwind, among others, and was the place where singer Yvonne Elliman was discovered by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, leading to her role in the original soundtrack recording of Jesus Christ Superstar. Eric Clapton lived on the top floor in the late 1960's. In his latest autobiography he tells of visits from George Harrison where they would take acid and write songs. On one occasion Eric narrowly avoided arrest on drug charges by fleeing out of the back of the building just as Sergeant Norman Pilcher, a detective with a knack for arresting rock stars, buzzed the intercom with 'postman, special delivery' and burst in. This beautiful and historic venue is located in the heart of the fashionable Kings Road, where it now houses Pizza Express on the ground floor. Pizza Express continues to present world class artists seven nights a week in the basement jazz and music club: The Pheasantry.
