The Old Blue Last is a pub / live venue in Shoreditch, East London brought to you by the people at Vice Magazine. Since 2004 we've been bringing you the best forward-thinking bands and Djs seven nights a week, as well as secret shows by some of the biggest names around and all, more-often-than-not, completely for FREE. In January 2010 we decided it was time for a facelift so we gutted the pub, replaced both the bars, made a lot more floor space, changed all the sound systems, built a new room and most importantly, replaced those toilets. So now you can come and enjoy whatever it is we feel like putting on every night of the week without the spectre of the old urinals putting you off, and with slightly less chance of being crushed into a speaker stack during a gig.

The Old Blue Last is best for...

Indie Pubs and Clubs
The Old Blue Last has hosted the likes of The Maccabees, Klaxons and The Horrors in the past. Chances are the band you see today will be next year’s one to watch. Live music almost nightly.

Student Bars and Clubs
By the same people that serve up Vice Magazine, this remains one of east London’s gems. It may have smartened itself up but its still a place to feel rocker any night of the week. Live bands and DJs and plenty of fun.

Bars and Clubs for Live Music
Say what you like about The Old Blue Last; just don’t say it doesn’t know how to pick a band. The likes of The Black Lips, The Horrors and Best Coast have all played it, and that’s why it still rules.

Where some people might expect to find a couple of old blokes sitting at the bar and watching telly, you actually find a incredibly trendy teenage/twens crowd of Hoxton’s younger scene people. The place is full of hooded tops, fluorescent T-shirts and nylon caps. It hosts a lot of Shoreditch’s best parties and live gigs.

Great pub, amazing interior although some might find it a bit run-down. Everything’s very 20s style, from the wallpaper to the old cinema seats they’ve got inside. A pint is about £3, a gin & tonic is £3.50. On the weekends, they’ve got live acts, it gets quite packed then. Relaxed atmosphere, friendly barstaff, the people are the usual east London bunch, arty and stylish.
