Queen of Hoxton reviews

By Monfort F.

They don't have a great menu and the food is medium but it is not too expensive. I had some spanish wine and it was vinegar so be careful with what you order. The place itself is not the most amazing but its roof terrace is spectacular and definitely worth a visit.

went there for the first time over the summer for a hula hoop session on the roof and loved it... levi roots doing a BBQ too!!

No one has reviewed this place for ages so here goes.. It's great! Outdoor cinema is great i watched a film there and even the staff were happily dancing and singing away at the end. summer bbqs are tasty and not over priced. People there can at times be pretentious but instead of judging just go with it. They are going for the whole sega master system, ping pong playing, random old skool memory vibe. I prefer it to a boring dull usual pub so try it once.

I usually come here for an after work drink but popped in for their Halloween party and ended up staying all night- had a great time! They'd made a real effort to dress the venue and create a spooky feel with spiders webs, smoke etc. Some unusual twists with some crazy girls do some (slightly odd) sporadic 'performance art' and there was the thriller dance on the roof when we arrived! Safe to say that this is a good one for a chilled out drink or a full on night out. Good cocktails, also sampled their pizza recently which was a winner!

I've been to the QoH a couple of times recently and neither have been wonderful. The first time was August Bank Holiday Monday. We started our afternoon up on the roof and moved downstairs as it got colder. The venue wasn't busy yet the basement toilets were revolting. Floor flooded, I don't know if they hadn't been cleaned since the night before and to make matters worse, infested with COCKROACHES. Vile. I then went again (for a friend's birthday, not by choice) yesterday. There was a theatre production being held up on the roof terrace. We chose not to watch and moved inside. When the heavens opened they decided to move the production inside the venue. Now, I'm not a fan of Am Dram, but had I been, I would have gone to a theatre for my fix, not a bar in Shoreditch on Sunday afternoon. But who holds an open air play in September in the UK?! I wouldn't even suggest doing that in the height of summer. Oh and once again, the toilets were in a pretty grim state. This is a shame, I like the look of the venue and they hold some interesting looking nights there. But there's no way on earth I would risk going there for a busy night going by how disgusting the toilets are when the place is only half full or less.

I like the venue ans the music.. but hold on a minute the security are the most aggresive i have come across for a long time. Mainly the so called head of the door staff team. He just about struck my friends face and shes a girl.. no kidding. shame really.

By Heather L.

Best roof terrace in London by a mile. Pretty good DJ line ups to. Wicked artwork. amazing sound system. Glad its of the beaten track, it keeps the wallies away

By Johnnie H.

Don't waste your hard earned salary in these stinky hole. Lousy service and even worst atmosphere. The music selection was built in the 90's right when they cleaned their loos for the last time.

By Ellie W.

A busy DJ bar embracing cutting edge music and East End cool.

The Venue
Queen of Hoxton’s black, mural-covered exterior is set among towering office blocks and period terraces on a quiet part of Curtain Road, just away from the hustle and bustle of Old Street. Inside, the decor is sparse, with huge concrete pillars, simple furniture and a long black bar where the drinks are displayed on the wall like films at a vintage cinema. On the ground floor you can find football tables, retro pinball and spaces to sit down and chat, but once the sun goes down people are really only here to drink and dance. If you venture down the stairs through the graffiti-covered hallway, you’ll find yourself in The Queen of Hoxton’s grungy basement, where music is louder and you can writhe and rave the night away.

The Atmosphere
The Shoreditch night spot attracts a mix of native east Londoners, trendy types and tourists all looking to soak up its cutting edge music and party atmosphere. That’s not to say Queen of Hoxton just deals with mixers and music; the venue boasts theatre, art installations and even a Ukulele Hootenanny, too. Some of the staff have fallen into the trap of thinking that trendy and friendly don’t mix - but the bar is lively and loud, so they can be forgiven.

The Music
Think cutting edge indie and you’re already halfway there, with gig and club nights seeing the likes of Lianne La Havas and Miles Kane performing in the Queen of Hoxton basement. Weekend club nights include This Feeling, an indie disco that has had the seal of approval from Noel Gallagher, no less. Tunes are channeled through a Funktion One sound system, so you’re guaranteed top quality audio.

The Drink
Innovative cocktails at £7.50 a go are the order of the day at Queen of Hoxton. Careful though: the Burning Sensation really does burn! If you’re feeling less adventurous, there are also lagers on tap, a reasonably priced wine list and an extensive range of spirits and mixers to get your evening started.

The Last Word
A bustling DJ bar with a focus on art and eclectic music.
