If you happen to be a young soul who cannot part with weekly nights of quality entertainment you are either a regular in Queen of Hoxton or someone who would really be interested in reading this review.
This loved Shoreditch bar combines pretty much all features a bar could have. Beginning with the fact that it turns from a casual bar in the evenings to a nightclub later on we can state also many reasons to visit Queen of Hoxton even if you are not the usual nightlife lover: many art exhibitions and performances are frequently hosted in this venue. Not surprisingly the bar is more than a gallery – every night, let alone during the weekends, there is something to see in Queen of Hoxton. Disco and house lovers can head to the bar every time they need a mood boost – the bar brags about having hosted live music nights with some of the most famous DJs like Tom Odell, Django Django, Lianne La Havas, Gold Panda and Miles Kane, as well as some of the world’s best turntablists like Caribou, Marshall Jefferson, Norman Jay MBE, Todd Terje, Crazy P, Maya Jane Coles, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Greg Wilson, Robert Owens and many, many more…
During the week Queen of Hoxton keeps just as busy as in the weekends; many Londoners have heard about the various events hosted there such as film nights, giant wigwam set ups, cook offs, rooftop dog shows, no sweat sport’s day, cocktail masterclasses, silent discos, numerous workshops…honestly, anything you can think of.

You can see how Queen of Hoxton is all about diversity, new experiences and getting the most out of every day and night; practically two similar visits of the bar are…impossible to occur. This philosophy is even fortified by the fact that Queen of Hoxton comprises of 3 almost separate bars actually. There is the bar behind the main entrance doors – the spot of young rebels. Huge showcases, peculiar windows, graffiti all over the place, benches for sitting and of course a clientele which consists of young spirits grouped together in lively chats or in the game rooms playing table football and pinball. If you want to see more of the Queen, you can continue with exploring the basement bar – the darker side; lazers, killing sound system, keen all-nighters and alluring vibe even if it is not one of the live nights at Queen of Hoxton. And the third part is maybe the most famous – the bar’s rooftop garden. Open from May to October, the terrace is packed with everyday events, huge barbecue and all this complimented by the stunning views over London.
I guess that everything so far is enough to allure a wide clientele but still, I want to talk about what is offered in Queen of Hoxton too. You can find an excellent cocktail bar, innovating the menu every season while still being able to execute any classic drink that is not on the menu – I’ve also heard that the bar’s cocktail master classes are very appreciated by exquisite drinks’ lovers. And as you can guess from the part with the huge barbeque, Queen of Hoxton offers freshly prepared food on its rooftop which is actually nothing remarkable but a good option for the night out contemplating London over a glass of wine.

And the last important feature of every place I want to discuss is the service. Here it is completely in tune with everything else you’ve just read. Easy-going yet attentive and competent staff, qualified bartenders and fast service of every order.
Considering that even the prices are quite bearable, especially for such quality, Queen of Hoxton is a perfect choice for any visitor looking to loosen up, endeavor in a new experience with some of the club’s workshop or have a memorable night with fun friends. If you already agree with me, don’t waste time – book a table for tonight!
