Queen of Hoxton, London, EC2A
(rated by 4 people)
Bar, club and art gallery, the Queen of Hoxton holds court in the heart of the East End, entertaining her neighbours with a tight programme of music accompanied by a rolling gallery of art installations and screenings. The ground floor is an intricate blend of window etchings, graffiti, ivy and a landscape of benches, while the games room holds table-football, vintage pinball and a unique Brighton pier 1960’s gaming rarity. The Queen’s alter ego appears in the basement bar; dark and a little twisted. The space caters for her every whim hosting cutting edge gigs and sweaty raves.
The Queen has been busy keeping London’s music lovers, clubbers, art fiends and hedonists occupied every single night throughout the year. We’ve hosted some of the biggest names on the music scene such as; Django Django, Lianne La Havas, Gold Panda and Dry The River, a selection of the world’s best turntablists, and indie club nights promoted by some of the most famous faces you’ll find on TV. The venue even becomes a snug bar with bespoke entertainment areas every Tuesday for ‘Tuesday Night Inn’ – there really is something for everyone in this royal establishment.
Despite already being one of East London’s most popular venues, the old girl hasn’t let complacency set in and the venue has seen the installation of a brand new Funktion One sound system, and the creation of a stunning rooftop garden complete with BBQ kitchen, bars, garden shed bathrooms, fountain, hanging gardens, astroturf and panoramic views over the city of London.
Quite simply, Queen of Hoxton is the ultimate youth club for the adults of the east side.
