Steeped in musical history, this venue has played host to some of the world’s greatest artists, from Sammy Davis Jnr and Jimi Hendrix to Led Zeppelin jam sessions. The ground-floor café is a charming space with stained glass and wood panelling. Brunch is served all day and a lunch menu features a range of pastas, burgers and seafood. Enjoy a hearty supper and a pint of Rothaus German beer before descending to the basement for an event from a varied programme of music, DJs and poetry nights. And if you don’t fancy the trek home, hole up in one of the Troubadour’s two arts and crafts-style rooftop apartments for the night.
