Planning a night out in London? Head east (ish) for some of the capital‘s coolest spots. With industrial-chic coffee shops, edgy street markets and a thriving restaurant scene, gone are the ‘up and coming’ days: Shoreditch comes alive in the evening and buzzes long into the night. These are the best clubs in Shoreditch.

The Best Clubs In Shoreditch


32–37 Cowper Street, EC2A 4AP

Best for: A quintessential club night

Notorious – and for good reason. Since opening in 2010, XOYO has established itself as a mainstay on the London clubbing scene. Split across two floors, the club covers everything throughout the week from house and electronic music to funk and soul. Head here on a Saturday to experience their famous Pleasurehood party. xoyo.co.uk

The Blues Kitchen

134–146 Curtain Rd, EC2A 3AR

Best for: Live music

Serving tasty food by day and serving up a roster of live performances throughout the week, The Blues Kitchen (also known for its Brixton and Camden outposts) is the ideal club in Shoreditch if you’re seeking more of a bar-with-dancing vibe, with live music and DJs until 2:30am every Friday and 3am every Saturday. theblueskitchen.com 

The Book Club

100–106 Leonard St, EC2A 4RH

Best for: Clubbing with a side of pizza

Solidly a cocktail bar in the week and a ‘club’ come the weekend, The Book Club is relatively small but packs a punch. If you’re looking for a midweek clubbing treat, this is the place for you: The Book Club serves £5 double G&Ts all night every Thursday, alongside £5 pizza every weekday. wearetbc.com

Queen of Hoxton

1 Curtain Road, EC2A 3JX

Best for: Rooftop bar

Famed for its rooftop bar (rare in Shoreditch) and its Saturday Drag & Waffle Bottomless Brunch, Queen of Hoxton is a spacious venue spread over three floors, including two ‘party’ rooms and a ground floor bar area. The rooftop plays host to varied exciting pop-ups throughout the year (après ski, at present), so it’s worth the trip even if clubbing isn’t on the agenda. Note: Queen of Hoxton is temporarily closed until 10 February. queenofhoxton.com 

Gigi’s Hoxton

11 Hoxton Square, N1 6NU

Best for: Quirky decor

Over in buzzy Hoxton Square, Gigi’s Hoxton is the ultimate live music and DJ venue. Home to the ‘Hoxton Underbelly’ in the basement, there’s plenty of space to get grooving, tasty cocktail in hand. gigishoxton.com

Village Underground

Best for: Shoreditch aesthetic

What do you think of when you think of clubs in Shoreditch? Converted warehouses? Industrial chic? Village Underground embodies it all – and more – housed in a lofty warehouse with repurposed tube carriages on site. Note that Village Underground is an events space, so you’ll have to keep your eyes peeled for external vendors hosting their parties here (don’t worry, there are many). villageunderground.co.uk

93 Feet East

150 Brick Lane, E1 6QL

Best for: Big names

Another venue embodying that industrial interior Shoreditch is famous for, 93 Feet East – situated on the iconic Brick Lane – has been drawing crowds of D&B revellers since 1999. Head here for the best in house, techno, garage and disco (not all at once). 93feeteast.co.uk
