Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen
Everyone from Janelle Monae to Rita Ora has played at Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen before going on to become a massive international name.
Roughly divided into three rooms, the performance space, once a cinema, now presents rising stars, secret gigs by established artists, and club nights, including the seminal BoomBox (back in the day).
Its restaurant mostly sells burgers and wings, while the main bar stocks beers, wines and most of the more popular cocktails. It also has a venue hire space, called the Green Room, which caters for everything from a business breakfast for 50 to a drinks reception for 120.
On a typical night there is the usual Shoreditch blend of creatives, techies, City workers and revellers from across the capital.
