Time Out says

You can’t miss Village Underground thanks to the four brightly coloured, graffiti-covered tube carriages perched on its roof. The decommissioned Jubilee line carriages and accompanying shipping containers were installed on top of the warehouse venue in 2007 in response to the need for affordable artists’ studios in central London. Now housing around 30 creatives working in a range of disciplines, its previous tenants include the likes of immersive theatre company Punchdrunk and LGBTQ+ nightlife collective Sink the Pink. A renovated Victorian warehouse space below has become one of Shoreditch’s most popular gigging and clubbing venues, and plays host to a varied programme of exhibitions, concerts, theatre and live art year-round.
