Whether it’s a Friday or Saturday night Dirty DJ in Kensington, Shoreditch or Oxford, a Thursday Live Band Night in Kensington or one of our carefully curated playlists the rest of the week, we forego background music and push our old school beats to the front to give them the respect they deserve.
