Live Music in The West End

Through the hard-to-find entrance off Orange Yard and down into the basement you’ll find a packed, 275-capacity venue that really punches above its weight. Read the gig list: Ed Sheeran, REM, Blur, Counting Crows, PJ Harvey, Lenny Kravitz and Pearl Jam, plus many anonymous indie outfits, have all played here. The crowd’s equally diverse but can contain music journos and record-company talent spotters.

Gigs (£7 to £12) are usually at 7pm Tuesday to Saturday, with an additional one at 11pm on Friday and Saturday.
