    The go to venue for straightforward, no-frills blues in the heart of London. The house bands are quite good, and there is music on every night!

    Nice live music, different bands everyday, diverse crowd, great atmosphere on a Saturday night, shame for not allowing vaping but you can do it anyway when closer to the stage. Will come back here!

    Sundays jamming sessions make me want to totally give up my career and to instead dedicate my time to singing and playing blues...

    On Jam days (monday and sunday) arrive early to meet the house band and to enroll to play/sing: it's definitely worth it.

    The joint is usually packed to the rafters, especially on weekends when it offers free admission before 8:30 PM. Arrive early. Open till 1am weekdays and till 2.30am - Friday / Saturday Read more

  • Fionners G.

    A decent spot if you're after a late night drink or some live music. Can get jam packed though and unpleasant at peak times (like a lot of bars though)

    Fionners G · October 26, 2012
  • Party Earth

    This chitlin’ circuit gets rowdier than Parchman Farm, so get in early to avoid the line – otherwise, the only blues you’ll be seeing are frostbitten fingers from standing out in the blistering cold. Read more

    The friendly if occasionally hapless service & the atmosphere mean that the joint is usually packed to the rafters, especially on weekends when it offers free admission before 8:30 PM. Arrive early. Read more

  • Thrash Hits

    A sweaty little bar with live music every night. With murals of BB King and Buddy Guy, honkytonk piano with slide guitars, and Amy Winehouse slumped in the corner trying to remember her middle name. Read more

    Great live music 365 days a year! You must arrive before music starts to avoid the big queue.

    The original and the best - "she had the face of the devil and the body of a frog" - awesome times.
