One of the Hoxton originals, Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen has seen plenty of action since first opening its doors in 2001 and remains as vital to the scene as ever. With a grassroots approach to programming up and coming live talent the venue's eagle eared bookers have paved the way for some goose-bump inducing performances over the years in the 300 capacity live room. The list of bands that have played here is a fantasy festival line up if ever we saw one, with bands sharing fond tales on the touring circuit perhaps part explaining the venue being so well revered outside, as well as inside, London. Live acts that have previously played include: Azealia Banks // Ben Howard // Brody Dalle // CSS // Django Django // Don Broco // Dum Dum Girls // Example // Fleet Foxes // Florence + The Machine // Foals // Foxes // Girls // Grimes // Jack Savoretti // Janelle Monae // Japandroids // Jessie J // Laura Marling // Lianne La Havas // Local Natives // Major Lazer // Marina & The Diamonds // Miles Kane // Mogwai // Mumford & Sons // Noah & The Whale // Rita Ora // Savages // SBTRKT // The Bravery // The Hives // Tim Burgess // Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs // Vampire Weekend // Vivian Girls // Wavves // White Lies // Willy Mason

This place was a complete let down. We went because we saw an advert for their R&B, Hip Hop etc night and it was horrendous. The room at the back looked like an area straight from the ghetto. There was a lot of questionable people...More

Stumbled in here with a mate on a week night after I came here four years for a gig. Bit disappointed after I saw the menu as it was all fried chicken, however the spicy chicken burger with all the coleslaw bits/coriander was genuinely one...More

Not great pleasant enough inside and staff friendly to a point. I had the scramble eggs very over cooked and when I asked for a replacement it was not taken well

Went for a drink and a snack. Staff not over friendly. Very crowded. It was full of smokers outside. Not wanting my clothes to smell or inhale other people's cigarettes, we drank up quickly and left. Won't be going back!

The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is
a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be
it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well
connected transportation links dotting its perimeter,
along with an ever increasing variety of shops,
hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore
this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood.
There's a lingering post-industrial grit about
