Soho

You haven't 'done' Soho until you've been to a gig at The Borderline, simple as. This much-loved venue with a loyal audience has given a platform to countless bands and artists throughout its long history – stretching back over 20 years – and is still going strong today, showcasing both new and revered talent. Head in for a gig on any given day and you could find yourself moshing to rock and metal, getting busy on the dancefloor at an indie club night or perhaps soaking up the sweet tone of a folk, blues or Americana singer-songwriter.

It can get a little cramped when the 275-ish capacity fills up, but that's all the better for creating an intimate atmospherewhere between artist and audience, and means you won't have to worry about elbowing your way to the front past thousands of people. A Soho musical institution.

Dirrty at The Borderline on Thursdays is amazing. Rnb and Hip Hop buffs will love this, and has a mixed, lively crowd. Great venue, great music.

Great, buzzing venue, always good for a night out. Usually has drinks deals on and is in a brilliant location, just round the corner from Tottenham Court Road station. On club nights, the music is reassuringly different from standard central London club music fare - slanted towards indie and alternative, the selection ranges from The Libertines to The Smiths, Joy Division to Talking Heads. 


Usually opens late and goes on till late, so if you're at a loss, I'd recommend going for drinks at The George beforehand - a boozer that is a couple of minutes away and always has a good ambience.

Decent music venue just off Charing Cross Road. Very easy to get to if you're working in central London. Keep a look out for who's playing.
