First time visitor to The Borderline and was very impressed. Definitely a music venue rather than a club. Great acoustics and friendly staff.

A great night with Charlie Winston (Platinum in France, crazily unheard of in the UK!) playing his first London set in years. With Sam Walker as support act, and Charlie's drummer, the evening was set for some of the best contemporary folk pop. The Borderline...More

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho
hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a
compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars,

Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene –
and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the
