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.
We were there when The Borderline reopened in March 2017:
Following a recent refurbishment, today Borderline continues to hum and buzz every night of the week with exciting new and established musicians. With a 4am finish Thursday-Saturday, the venue is also a popular club destination for Soho's revellers.
Today The Borderline continues to showcase old favourites and cutting edge new artists with anupgraded sound system, re-vamped décor and expanded drinks menu.

My favourite central london venue for both live and club music! Heaps of history, refurb is a welcome refresh and there aren't any other clubs that stay open 'til 4am in the area that I know of. (Y)
Whether it's a gig or a night out, Borderline is one of the best places in London and looks even nicer after their refurb!
Havn't been for over 20 years, but glad the new generation are getting it on down at the Borderline, long may it continue.
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.
