Night in Hoxton (Queen of Hoxton)


Queen of Hoxton is a great all-rounder and it’s massive, so technically there should be enough room for everyone, but it’s always packed at weekends, so get there early!

QOH is like three places in one; in the basement they have regular live music nights, ground floor is for the DJ and main bar and the rooftop is used all year round for BBQs in the sun or BBQs in their ‘WigWamBam’.

Being inbetween Shoreditch and Moorgate, this place attracts quite a diverse crowd from the new wannabe hipsters fresh on the scene and young city-slickers, so it perhaps doesn’t have that “unique coolness” it used to have a few years ago (although they do currently have a Ukulele Hootenany on Mondays!).

Don’t let that put you off though, it’s still a good place to go for an amazing view across London before going to the basement to see your fave band of the moment.  Just get there before 9pm, (way before 9 on weekends due to long queues) otherwise you have to pay to get in.

Oh and in case you don’t like stairs….they have a lot of stairs….

…but it does have some cool art strewn about the place….

About Hayles

Living in and loving London, I like to cram in as much as possible. I have a lot of different hobbies which I start on a whim and most of the time abandon for something else! My current interests include film, TV, music, comedy, art, photography, theatre and finding new yummy food establishments. Mostly I just love to experience the many joys and wonders that London offers. I started this blog to help me remember what I've actually done at the end of each year, but now I actually really enjoy writing and sharing what I hope is funny and/or useful information.
