Rooftop, Queen of Hoxton (EC2A 3JX)
The rooftop terrace is now a celebrated and integral part of the Shoreditch skyline, and its twice-yearly transformations are eagerly anticipated by Londoners who want to snuggle up with us in the winter or lounge in the urban heat during summer. Queen of Hoxton is a top Shoreditch bar and club with regular live music and DJ acts from cutting edge labels. The ground floor showcases an intricate blend of window etchings, graffiti, ivy and a landscape of benches, with a large bar that is happy to serve up tasty cocktails, thirst-quenching lagers and ales on tap and a selection of wines. Hip Shoreditch kids lounge on the big sofas and groups of friends enjoy the buzzy atmosphere with fun to be had in the games room with pinball and table football.
The Queen's alter ego appears in the basement bar, dark and a little twisted; a youth club for the adults of the east side with lazers, smoke and a booming Funktion One sound system. This fantastic London club space hosts top DJs Thursday to Saturday where you can get your sweaty London rave fix.
