It has an amazing history with some of the best bands on today’s scene having broken there and we’re looking forward to continuing and adding to that story.”
Adam Taylor, live music programmer at the Hoxton Square Bar added: “Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen has been at the heart of East London’s music scene since it’s opening in 2001 and many of the biggest and best loved bands in the world have played here early in their careers. It’s exciting to be working with Mothership Group, known for their unique and innovative events, in continuing Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen’s legacy.”
