RUMOURS of the death of The Lock Tavern sparked nationwide headlines last year. This legendary venue, now re-opened, has played a key role in the proud music history of Camden. Stars and bands such as Adele, Franz Ferdinand and Amy Winehouse all played gigs here early in their stellar careers. And many ravers have nursed sore heads after epic club nights in this sprawling two-floor boozer.
There was a collective sigh of relief when the venue was finally purchased by the East London Pub Co, who also run The Ten Bells, a historic pub in Spitalfields. They have gently revamped the space, repositioning the bar on the ground floor, adding a swathe of reclaimed wood panelling and installing a fire pit in the large pub garden. There’s a second bar and stage upstairs, with an adjacent terrace overlooking Chalk Farm Road. All in all, it’s quite an operation. The Lock Tavern is more like several venues rolled into one, attracting a younger, fashion-conscious crowd up for having a good time.
This is a club night for those looking to dance! Come down and enjoy uplifting dancefloor bangers from the global FUNK & SOUL spectrum! Get ready to butt-shake to the finest in Disco, Hip Hop, R’n’B, Motown and other funky and soulful sounds both old and new!
