As the city heats up, the gig calendar stays very cool indeed. Thanks to a whole range of music festivals in London and world-class acts stopping over between sets at different UK music festivals, Londoners can catch plenty of brilliant live music right on their doorsteps. Here are the best gigs in London this July.
Venue says: Join us in the bar every weekday from 6-8pm and take advantage of our 'shuckingly' good £1 oyster happy hour!
Ed and Tom Martin's first London venture - their ETM group now boasts eight more venues across the capital - is a gastropub still proving popular with those in Clerkenwell. There's a good array of draught and bottled beers and ciders (20 in total), complementing a wine list with an old world slant and bottles starting at £19. The food ranges from truffled celeriac soup served with mushroom tortellini to pan-fried fillet of Peterhead cod with brown crab croquettes, seashore vegetables and a chive butter sauce. There's a weekly quiz night too, alongside occasional special events.
