Our venue – Contraband
We built our venue/ bar/ music hub with the TV series Cheers in mind. If you haven’t seen Cheers, it’s about a subterranean bar where everyone knows your name. A home away from home. We wanted to create something like that. A hidden spot in London where everyone knows who you are. Where you can hide away from the chaos of London life and meet new people, talk music, listen to music, be immersed in music.
We have two floors. Downstairs is where you’ll find the bar and the stage and upstairs is the classroom. On any given day you can come down and find music in the air and people who are glad to see you.
Our venue was built with our members in mind and we like to think of it as a home away from home for the many people that walk through the door every day.
