Venue Guide: The Blues Kitchen

*Disclaimer: Phenomenal night out guaranteed* ... Trust

Delivering positive vibes 7 days a week at their 3 London venues.  Live music, delicious Texan BBQ & Cajun food and late night DJs – what more could you need? In a modern musical world drowning in drum machines and computerised instrumentation, sometimes it’s easy to forget how thrilling it is to see a live band … playing real instruments … in the same room as you … LIVE.  There’s always top quality, floor-filling DJ’s soundtracking each night, the main draw of each Blue’s Kitchen venue, however, is the genre-spanning live music performances. Expect everything from sensation singers, elaborate jazz arrangements, extended drum breaks, brass sections, saxophone solos, stage dives and everything in between.
