McQueen's In The City

Bringing a Touch of Vintage Hollywood Glamour to East London

"Sometimes you have to say goodbye to the things you know, and hello to the things you don't." Steve McQueen

McQueen... London's newest bar, club, restaurant, live performance and music venue takes its inspiration from Steve McQueen, the king of cool, his iconic style and attitude.

Bringing a little vintage Hollywood glamour to London; sophisticated, tasteful and refined, this is a venue for connoisseurs bored with the usual 'go-to-a-bar-and-drink' nights out.

With its high ceilings, chesterfields and warm inviting fireplace, The Lounge Bar is possibly the most McQueen influenced room. Not only is this room reminiscent of a New York City loft style apartment, this room is also a tribute to the late Alexander McQueen, with a lavish mannequin styled sculpture, art deco design, with plenty of vintage touches and an ever-evolving art collection.

The Club is where McQueen goes a bit rock'n'roll, mixing 1960s Hollywood glamour with a contemporary live music space, creating a venue unique for comfort, service and experience. This is boutique clubbing at its very best. Expect to see some of the world's top DJs & promoters here every week.

Chris McCormack, Head of Live Music and former lead guitarist of 'Three Colours Red' and 'Grand Theft Audio' with his team of respected musicians will bring in the very best acts in today's music scene including bands, musicians and DJs old and new.

Like the bar, the restaurant at McQueen has a vintage cool appeal, inspired by the look and feel of McQueen’s movies. As such one wall of the restaurant will play iconic movies with live music and performance, inspired by the 1930s supper clubs era.

AGM Theo Von-Sternberg and bar manager Eline Bosman have created a list of simple, no frills, delicious drinks inspired by McQueen, and the golden age of Hollywood circa 1920s to 1960s.

The fruit-led cocktail phenomenon of the 80s and beyond has taken a back-seat to the old school style/flavour and balance led drinks. All the house drinks are American based classics with a slick twist. Using spirit bases that were available during that time (1920s - 1960s)... rum, brandy, vodka, whisky, and liquors.

Open Tuesday until Sunday from midday, there's a party every night at McQueen...

Saturdays David De Darvalho's Body Heat nights fuse music, art, fashion and society.

Crazed Cabaret on Friday's is 1960s Hollywood meets alternative cabaret, with resident DJs Team Disgusting, Jimmy Napes & Emily Rawson, alongside weekly performances from cabaret artists such as TrixeeBelle, Chrys Columbibe, Monooka the Marionette, Naomi DeKleined on the fiddle, plus music much more... dress code is decadent so dress to impress.
Thursday 27th May is EMC3 Launch Event at our beautiful venue.

On Wednesdays Patrick Alan, singer/songwriter/choreographer and Michael Jackson's former dancer, brings his legendary NYC & LA celebrity jammin' session and live show to McQueen.

Kuga Manuva on Tuesdays is a new music night for the fashion-forward crowd. DJ Richard Stone orchestrates a mix of new electro/hip hop/mash-ups/ with dub-step and drum and bass. Expect big name artists and acts with resident DJs Richard Stone, Dan Healy, Bassam Ibellini, Sam Young and El Chico.
