Members' clubs may be two a penny in Mayfair, but they are a bit of a scarcity when it comes to east London. There isn't an overabundance of exclusive venues where guests can enjoy lush settings, beautiful decoration, a smart crowd, and operating hours until 4am in Shoreditch. Enter The Kings Head, our newest partner members club. Nestled on Kingsland Road in Hoxton, the club is situated behind the building's original façade - a faded neighbourhood Irish pub. However, its humble exterior secrets a stunning interior that wouldn't be out of place in London's most salubrious settings.
Spread over four floors, The Kings Head is replete with some of the most striking taxidermy we've seen. Those dancing downstairs might happen upon a chimpanzee holding an AK-47, whilst in the private rooms upstairs you may be dining in the company of polar bears, cheetah, zebras, leopards and lions. Upon entering the building, there's a large horseshoe-shaped with brocaded velvet stools, red velvet banquettes and a Bengal tiger roaring from the top shelf. The club downstairs is a dark affair with various levels to dance on.
Visiting guests will be treated to a large mix of musical programming, running the gamut from techno and house DJs through to pub quizzes, poetry evenings and Q&As with members of the film and music industry. It's really a special place to visit, whether you're looking for a late night redoubt for full-on revelry, a cool and quirky place to have a meeting, or a spot to catch up on work.
