Perhaps the most adaptable venue in London, this wide, 350-capacity basement room has long provided a home for trad jazz, pub blues, northern soul and punk. Originally a restaurant, the 100 Club was first hired out as a live music venue in 1942 and was popular as a hangout/bomb shelter during World War II owing to its underground location.
Many historic shows have been staged at the 100 Club through the decades, including sets by Louis Armstrong, Billie Holliday, Muddy Waters, The Kinks, the Sex Pistols and just about every notable Britpop band. The 100 Club was threatened with closure in 2011 due to rocketing rent charges, but was saved thanks to securing backing from Converse, no doubt helped by vocal support for the venue from the likes of Sir Mick Jagger and Liam Gallagher.

I was recently at 100 Club for a free Kelela gig courtesy of Converse Rubber tracks - it's a cool little venue shaped in a way that means it's always going to feel intimate, and you can never really be too far from the stage (capacity is only like 350 people or so). Definitely the kind of venue that'll work for some acts better than others due to that, and there's a massive pillar right in front of the stage, so you do have to make sure you avoid it if you want to see things.
