Shoreditch / Brick Lane, London –
In the heart of gritty Brick Lane is 93 Feet East, a live music institution that provides a platform for new and established acts and that has been part of the cutting-edge club scene for the past decade.
Upcoming bands from all over the world and many signed bands like Kaiser Chiefs, The White Stripes, and Radiohead grace the stage on weeknights, while the weekends are given over to top London DJs who hit the decks and get the crowd going.
While a subtler clientele of fans of the bands and locals show up for the weeknight shows, the weekends draw the funkier, eyeliner-wearing Shoreditch set, though both groups are laid back and approachable and clearly put the focus on the music.
The indie style of the patrons fits in with the club’s minimalistic décor of exposed rafters and bare wood floors. Divided into several areas, 93 offers a bit of something for everyone, starting with the Main Hall, which features a large dance floor, a stage, and a projection screen.
A raised DJ booth and wooden benches to sit or dance on occupy most of The Pink Bar, while the more intimate Gallery Bar provides a candlelit haven for those who wish to escape the noise. For drinks and a chat – and even a barbecue on the weekends – the popular patio offers fresh air and a great place to mingle.
Quirky and pretension-free, 93 Feet East is a terrific option for anyone looking for a more alternative vibe.
Trendy, edgy, indie and alternative types, early 20s.
