Time Out says

There’s certainly a lot of fun to be had at this very popular Camden Town spot. It’s from the KOKO stable of venues (you’ll probably know the live music venue and Camden stalwart, KOKO, just down the road) so when it comes to programming these guys sure know what’s what. 

That means you’re in for some high-quality gigs and events, from '90s RnB bottomless brunches to album launches, art exhibitions, spoken word and live gigs from very credible emerging artists. In short, it’s definitely worth keeping an eye on their calendar. 

Alongside the entertainment is a food menu going big on authentic Italian flavours. The pizza menu is good, and is complemented by charcuterie plates, an excellent mac and cheese, and a beef rigatoni made with slow-cooked beef cheeks and oxtail, dressed with Pecorino cheese. Delicious.

Cafe KOKO says
Cafe KOKO is a lively day-to-night eatery and music venue in Camden with music at its core, situated behind London’s iconic KOKO, serving up soulful Italian cooking with a modern twist and with expertly curated music playing at all times.

Cafe KOKO is a favourite amongst musicians; it’s where Stormzy held his birthday party; Nicki Minaj stopped traffic for her meet and greet, whilst artists playing the theatre are often seen hanging in the Cafe beforehand. A carefully curated art and photography collection is exhibited on the walls, referencing the theatre’s deep music history featuring photography of Kanye West, Grace Jones and Anderson Paak, along with original works by David Shrigley and emerging star Joachim Lambrechts.

Drawing inspiration from the new generation of trattoria seen in LA and New York, Executive chef Andreas Engberg (La Petite Maison, The Arts Club) has curated a team of talented chefs from (Amazonico, Pizza Pilgrims, ROKA) and as such the venue is fast becoming a favourite with food & drink lovers and the music elite alike, who visit to pizza and Italian dishes or watch live music in a buzzy and laid-back setting.

As you might expect from an iconic music venue, expertly curated music is always playing - whether it’s live music or DJs - reflecting contemporary music across jazz, soul, Brazilian and with a nod towards hip hop culture, old and new, tying back to the venue’s roots.

What’s on

Don KOKO at Café KOKO

  • Food and drink events

London’s a global city when it comes to the cuisines on offer, but it can feel like there’s just too many to choose from. Thankfully, Café KOKO has launched a dining experience battle between two of our favourites, to make your decision about where to eat a little easier. Every Friday night, Don KOKO will feature limited edition Mexican and Italian dishes from rotating guest chefs, all curated by KOKO Electronic’s DJ roster. Opening night will see singer and producer SG Lewis’s pepperoni, hot honey, burrata and red onion pizza slice battle food content creator @whatwillycook’s shredded chicken and crushed scampi fries taco, but the reasonable menu is jam-packed with juicy options, plus margaritas, spritzes and palomas, too.
