Bush Hall - See folk in the beautifully formed interior
Bush Hall Presents
Shepherd's Bush

The small (capacity around 350) but beautifully formed Bush Hall has a fantastic chequered history, having been one of three venues built by publisher WC Humdall around 1904 as gifts for his three daughters, surviving not only various incarnations as a music/dance hall in the roaring '20s, soup kitchen, bingo hall, music rehearsal space and snooker club, but also bombardment during The Blitz. The exterior is unprepossessing, but inside the restored Edwardian plaster work impresses, as do the two-tier Austrian lead crystal chandeliers. The music programme covers folk, blues, country, Americana and alt.rock artists, both local and overseas.

Great range of terrific bands - and some, like Ibeyi, just before they become huge. Really friendly and easy but serious about music. Bush Dining Rooms next door great place to eat before a show.

Aside from presenting some of the best names in comedy and music, Bush Hall is worth a visit because it’s a genuinely stunning venue.

More like a grand ballroom than the ‘hall’ the name suggests, the chandeliers and ornate architecture are easy distractions from the talent on stage.

Don’t be put off by the carpet. Unlike Wetherspoons, having a seat on the floor won’t leave you with an incurable disease, and everything always feels clean and well cared for -  it’s completely acceptable to sit down while you wait for the show to begin.

Once it does, that’s when the magic starts, as the high ceiling and abundance of space make for impressive acoustics – in fact, it’s entirely normal to see an artist break out into an a capella version of their favourite song, just to hear their voice bouncing off the walls.

Also, they have a great beer selection, so get extra points for that!
