St Moritz Club

The ultimate Soho shebeen, St Moritz has been packing them in for decades. Located beneath a Swiss restaurant (also called St Moritz), the basement club has retained much of the same décor it has had since the '60s, giving it a timeless London feel.

Its flagship club night is Gaz's Rockin' Blues, helmed by legendary selector Gaz Mayall. It's been running there every Thursday for the past 30 years and still hosts turbo-charged live performances alongside ska, classic R&B and rock 'n' roll DJs each week. Long-running West End indie night Blow Up (which bears some responsibility for inventing Britpop) is in residence every Friday and at the other end of the musical spectrum, Decadence on Saturdays is a session of balls-out hair metal debauchery. That's three good reasons every week to visit this London institution.

St Moritz has been in the same location for decades, and as it was recommended to me many times, I decided to give it a go. It’s a tiny club in a basement hidden beneath a Swiss restaurant with the same name. The good thing about it is that it has different music residencies, from blues to 80’s and Brit pop/Indie. Its walls show the evidence of when the club was very popular with people like Lou Reed and Joe Strummer who played at St Moritz when in London. There’s a dance floor and a separated alcove with some seats, the drinks are inexpensive and even if St. Moritz may not be as popular as in the past, if you’re around Soho, you’re looking for a quiet club where to dance/drink, then give it a go.

A bona fide music joint that has retained it's charm and swag. Even the staff look like they could have stepped right out of Sid Vicious's dressing room. It's small enough to be atmospheric but big enough with a few side rooms and alcoves to break away from the main gig room. A music lover's spiritual home.


Went on a Friday to there rockabilly night - amazing band playing!
