Kings Head Private Members Club


It is as secret as you can get. But guess what… ClubCat will share the secret with you ūüôā

Hidden in the depths of Kingsland Road, end of Shoreditch, there is a corner of an abandoned building. As if an old barber shop, but everyone knows that everything that starts with ‘Kings’, and has a certain body part in the name, as ‘Arms’ or ‘Head’, must be a pub.

Well, this corner is neither of those two. It is one of the craziest houses you might ever enter. It has the ‘Polar Bear’ room, a club, the ‘Rocky’ room, a bar with a tiger jumping out of it, the ‘Office’ room and the Bathroom (a real one and the glass one with peacocks and lions inside). Quick to mention that the animals aren’t alive! However, all the taxidermies are real.

The owner has an undeniable sense of style and the ability to transform a most ordinary room into something ‘wow’. Rocky owns seven venues around East London and each one of them has its specific strong style and design. However, guess which one is his favorite…

Putting all his heart and most of the investments, Rocky makes sure there’s always a new member of the ‘family’ added to the Kings Head. From hundreds of species of butterflies to giraffes, to the rare snow leopards and rhinos, the members club is a home for all.

As you buzz the ring, expect to enter a small, intimate space and be greeted by a big, tall man. Quite intimidating, as it should be. After getting the approval to proceed through the curtain, you can instantly feel like home. Well, a quite strange home.

The ground floor is centered around an impressive bar, offering any cocktail on any menu, comfy seats in the restaurant area, and a dance floor with a DJ booth, reminding a bears’ cave.

The Club

Only one floor down, on the weekends you can experience proper underground – deep house, techno, acid house and dance music DJ’s come to please the rare and diverse crowd that Kings Head is known for.

The Polar Bear Room

Try guessing why is it called like this. A giant polar bear is a great attraction to take pictures or to actually get an idea of how would a real one look like. Not to mention that athe experience of dining with a polar bear is not something everyone can brag about!

The room is the largest one in the venue, has its own bar and impressive atmosphere. Great for larger groups parties, drinks reception, and other events.

The Butterfly Room

Have you ever seen anything like it? Landed on the second floor, these butterflies must’ve seen quite a lot happening here. Great for friends and families lunch and dinners or just a cheeky evening drink.

The Rocky Room

Named by the name of the owner, and owning his heart, this room is the most special one. Lions, panthers, leopards, tigers, a giraffe and monkeys… Doesn’t sound like the best place to enjoy the steak!

However, this room can turn into a breathtaking place for your Christmas dinner. The animals, antique candles, and gold patterns create a scene from a movie. No doubt, the unique atmosphere can turn anything into a one-time experience.

It’s not surprising that Kings Head Members Club is often used for private events as fashion shows, photoshoots, themed parties or shooting films.

The access to all of the above is only for the members and their selected friends. All the information about the club rules, memberships and further requests you can find on their page: http://www.thekingshead-london.com/content/club-rules

The Lion & Lamb|Hoxton


Everyone on the East Side of London knows that the question of where to go to eat, have a beer, or go out, ends with the answer… Hoxton. Sometimes it is a lot of fun to go from one place to another, meet some friends there, and there, and some new people everywhere. That’s what Hoxton all about, isn’t it?

For some, it is. For ClubCat it is important to feel like home. In a sense that all your friends are in one place, you can all have some food, one or more drinks and then party till the dawn.

Try to search ‘The Lion & Lamb’ in Google, Facebook or anywhere on the internet. The place has a minimal publicity apart the events calendar and the location. Simply because it doesn’t need it. The word of mouth is the best promotion, and my, oh my, people talk about this place!

13938160_1069331199819684_293209591459805787_o

Being and empty space in an awesome area, over the last few years it underwent a lot of changes and had different purposes: an art gallery, an East-end boozer, and an underground club. The Lion & Lamb now has it all.

Over a year ago, a group of London-based, experienced, modern-thinking promoters, DJ’s, producers opened up this place to hide from the commercialised Shoreditch. Its purpose is to unite the community of the artists. And… the music!

18195136_1318648288221306_3025935670600382213_nLion & Lamb is set to become a favourite destination for creative people and music lovers in the area.¬†The plans are big. For now, let’s keep its secrecy and talk about what’s on.

Tonight: Alex Arnout and Clive Henry (DC-10)

23rd September Saturday 20/20 vision @The Lion&Lamb

Familia returns to EGG tomorrow night and the line up is nothing but impressive. Senso Sounds head-honcho Oliver Huntemann – one of my longtime personal favourites – will be joined by Brazilian rising star Victor Ruiz who is coming to London for his very first UK gig.

The Terrace will be headlined by Drumcode’s Timmo, another new face that’s promising fresh sounds and driving beats. The Loft will be taken over by Thesaurus with Critical Damage, VanDi and Alek Mater.
