Café Oto information
Café Oto is one of London’s most idiosyncratic and interesting music venues. Set in a converted print warehouse and run by a Japanese-British couple, this place dedicates itself to promoting experimental and alternative international musicians. You’ll find lots of Japanese stars of experimental, jazz and pop music, as well as legendary 1960s folk and rock stars.
When there are no gigs on, Café Oto is open as a bar serving an unusually good selection of bottled Belgian beers, whiskys from Scotland and Japan and draught beers from London brewery The Kernel.
