Party Earth Queen of Hoxton Review

The Scene

Queen of Hoxton in London's Shoreditch is a bar/club/arcade/rooftop/theatre and more. Get in on the diverse offerings of this London haunt with Party Earth.

Considering the cocktail bar, underground club, retro arcade, and innovative roof top, it’s clear that Queen of Hoxton is no typical East End boozer’s den.

Midweek the long concrete bar on the ground floor plays host to many artsy Shoreditchians, their woven fedoras tipped so they can read the cocktail specials on the chalkboard, as young-at-heart corporate types relive their student days – or maybe their parents’ student days – playing vintage pinball and foosball in the adjoining game room.

Burnt orange bulbs and fake ivy dress the ceiling, while exposed square pillars continue the industrial theme, offset by rotating art installations, window etchings, and mismatched wooden chairs.

Thursdays through Saturdays, the ground floor swells with debauched outer Londoners who show up to let loose to DJ-driven electro, while down in the shadowy basement bar, the schedule varies from electro club nights to eclectic live music and standup comedy.

The rooftop, meanwhile, is a veritable mecca in the summer, when weary city slickers lounge on picnic chairs in the fleeting sun or catch one of several evening outdoor movie screenings put on by the Rooftop Film Club.

Far from being a one-trick pony, Queen of Hoxton offers an innovative and diverse entertainment lineup that promises a royally good time.
