Boiler Room


So far I have only been talking about my favourite places to eat out so I thought it was about time to
broaden out a bit and recommend some slightly different places to go out in London. I was fortunate enough to make the guest list for the boiler room a few weeks ago. The boiler room (which yes did start its existence in a boiler room in East London) has become a bit of an online phenomenon since it started over a year ago. The basic idea is that you get to watch the best Dj's around in an intimate environment, facing the wall not you they are free to do their own thing which is then streamed live over the Internet. It is held every Tuesday and if you aren't on the guest list you will not get in. Inside it is like a mini club, literally a small room packed with people that know their music, watching dj's like Jamie xx working their magic on the decks. It's an unpretentious, seriously cool night out which definitely deserves the hype that has seen it gain  over 50000 fans on their facebook page. Even if you don't make the guest list the mixes are available as podcasts and have been provided the soundtrack to my bus journeys ever since. I cannot wait to go back to the boiler room and hope that these musical addition to Tuesday nights will continue for some time to come! When I went Rustie was on the decks but here are two of my favourite previous sets to give you a taster of what its like!
