The Lexington

Music Music venues Pentonville Road

Effectively the common room for the music industry’s perennial sixth form, this is where the hottest US exports will generally make their London debut. 

Indie greats such as The Drums and Sleigh Bells have cut their teeth here in front of one of London’s most receptive crowds, usually comprising an equal mix of hipsters, scenesters, bloggers and fans without portfolio. 

Even if you don’t like the headliners, at least you’ll have something interesting to bitch about next time you’re out and about with your trendy friends.

Next venue: The Windmill
