Their huge rooftop is one of the funnest in London too – with an enormous wigwam set up during the winter months.

This year's Wigwam is the best yet. marshmallows on sticks, hot cocktails, nice food and a manmade tree that you can actually climb. Super cosy and great quirky place to take a first date
1/ between 11:17 and 11:18pm price went up from £8 to £10 whilst in queue.
2/ paid 4 entrances for £40, excited to have a drink on the rooftop --> which is NOT open at night. Too bad as this is why we had come for (after reading the latest timeout recommending it specifically for the rooftop). Too bad I heard people getting out of the bar shouting "don't waste your time here" AFTER I paid the £40.
3/ tried to kindly explain to the staff at the entrance that we only came for the rooftop and thus we don't want to stay and want our money back --> the answer I got was "you should have been more careful reading our website"
4/ stopped debating - as the money is already wasted, I tried to approach the bar where it took me ages to get drinks. Whilst in queue, a lovely smell of urine at the bar by the way.
5/ downed the drink and left because of terrible music
NOT a place I would recommend. At all.
PS: 1 star given because it is not possible to give none. Doesn't even deserve it.
My friends and I spent NYE at Queen of Hoxton. I am surprised there aren't more positive reviews as we had a tremendous time there ! The theme was cool, lots of people played the game by coming dressed up of wearing marine outfits. The music was very eclectic and it's a great thing because everyone was able to enjoy it ! The DJs were cool, especially the Menendez Brothers whom we unwittingly ended up talking to. Being French, we were pleasantly surprised at the friendliness of people there, we got to talk to lots of people from everywhere ! They served hot dogs on the roof, from which the view is amazing !!!! It's a great place to go party, and I normally hate clubs I prefer bars - but I had a great time at Queen of Hoxton. It was reasonably crowded and the only reason why it doesn't get a % stars for me is because the baristas took ages to take our orders everytime, which was very annoying. This would be the only bad thing I wanted to point out for improvement. Other than that, I am sure on less busy nights the service is great. If you've never been, you should go and experience it yourself :-) I highly recommend it.
I was out for a friends 23rd and it was shaping up to be a good night. Whilst getting a drink at the ground floor bar, i saw this 'DJ' madly twiddling nobs on the mixer channel which was at zero volume. Being a DJ myself i was intrigued, so i watched him for a while. The guy did not even attempt to mix. There was a track running and he literally just played with idle controls whilst dancing about like a moron. I've never seen such a pretentious display of fakery in my life. I've seen some terrible DJ's, but none as bad as this. I decided to talk to him. A few times i pointed out that he was using controls on a silent channel - no response. I then said he was a crap DJ. When he looked up, i realised it was Matt Horne (the guy from gavin and stacey). I was a little starstruck and stopped what i was doing to go tell my friends. As i pointed him out he was reeling of some trap to the bouncers about how i had assaulted him over the decks. They then grabbed me and took me out. I asked the bouncer why i'd been kicked out, i was told i 'shouldn't have pushed the DJ'. I paid £5 to get into that club and my night was over because Gavin can't accept the fact that he's a poser. The whole situation was hilarious. Seriously matt - stop kidding yourself and stick to the acting & whilst you're at it, don't ruin peoples evenings unnecessarily. Grow up. You're not a princess, and you're certainly not a DJ.
It's a nice venue. The one major issue is the stairs!! To get up to the roof, you need to be fit. My steel drum band covered a company party at this venue and we enjoyed it. With some further tweaks, the roof terrace could be more interesting, but overall, the staff were helpful and polite which makes a lot of difference to the whole experience.
