Kingsland Viaduct, 83 Rivington Street, Shoreditch, London EC2A 3AY
Underneath a brick railway arch, this longstanding Shoreditch club has preserved an imaginative music policy that has ensured it is still one of the places to be in the area. As well as resident DJs, there’s a programme of live acts, from indie rockers to techno artists and soul singers. Their Street Food Café keeps punters happy with chips, burritos, platters and burgers, the bar is impressive and the pretty outdoor area is decorated with murals, tree-trunk seats and a photo booth. Plus the welcome is warm, the young crowd is party-focused and there are free events and film screenings nearly every night.
