Situated in the Shoreditch triangle - the stretch between Shoreditch and Old Street - the site of The Blues Kitchen has been part of Shoreditch's buzzing nightlife for decades. It has come in various guises through the years - as a cabaret club, late 80's rave venue and 90's music hall - and that tradition of entertainment continues in the 21st century with a bar/restaurant that offers Texan BBQ food and weekly swing nights where you can learn to dance to live music. There's live soul and funk tunes on Wednesdays, dancing till 3am on Saturdays and Gospel Sundays with soul healing tunes from the Blues Kitchen choir.
