Music & Dance

The Blues Kitchen

This is a good venue for live music. They have shows almost every evening and you can book a table for drinks or dinner before or during the show. The music tends to be blues, jazz, and folk oriented, but it’s a pretty good variety. They have 3 locations: Shoreditch, Camden, and Brixton, each of which serve the same menu and have live music nightly. Website

Royal Albert Hall

The Royal Albert Hall is a historic and beautiful concert hall in South Ken, probably best known for hosting the Proms each year. The venue is truly a sight to be seen and has over 5,200 seats.Throughout the year it features all kinds of concerts, talks, workshops, and performances, most of which feature music in some capacity, though there are some dance, theater, and comedy shows as well. The Royal Albert Hall also offers several different paid guided tours throughout the week exploring the history, architecture and secrets of the hall. Website

Sadler’s Wells Theatre (we recommend!)

One of the few theaters in London that focuses exclusively on dance of every kind – ballet, tango, hip hop, Bollywood, etc. The diversity of performances this theater offers is quite impressive. Tickets tend to sell out in advance, so it’s worth booking online ahead of time. The main theater is located around Bloomsbury, but they present some work in smaller venues around London as well. Website
