Live Music

If you’re looking for the best live music, London is sure to have something to suit. So why not book a stay at the Montcalm London City luxury hotel?

The Lexington

Located in Islington, The Lexington is a favourite destination for those looking for rock’n’roll music and a bit of classic Americana.

The downstairs lounge has a warm, moody ambience and serves up microbrews and rare bourbons from the USA. Or you can head up the stairs to enjoy some raucous tunes.

The Hope and Anchor

An iconic pub, The Hope and Anchor has been a favourite for live music since the mid-1970s – especially for fans of pub rock and punk.

The interior is unpretentious and austere, although gone is the smoky, grungy atmosphere of the past. These days, it’s a popular choice for emerging bands and Keane made a first appearance here in 1998.

Dublin Castle

Situated in Camden Town, the Dublin Castle is a legendary venue that first made its name in the late 1970s with regular performances by Madness.

Since then, the pub has become a London hotspot and you never know when the next big group could be performing. Indeed, many famous names have graced the stage, including Oasis and Babyshambles.


London’s nightclubs are famous for their lively atmospheres and excellent music. If you’re planning a night on the town, why not book a room at the Montcalm London City?

The Anthologist

During the day, this venue near Bank underground station is a lovely restaurant and bar that caters to the bankers and office workers that flock to the area.

By night, the Anthologist becomes a staple of the clubbing scene, with a massive dance floor, state-of-the-art lighting, plenty of chill-out spaces and world-class DJs. If you love soul music, don’t miss Soul Saturdays every weekend.

The Rhythm Factory

Located on Whitechapel Road, this club offers a more relaxed scene, with a coffee shop and bar at the front and a live music and dance venue at the back.

Depending on the line-up, clubbers can enjoy music genres ranging from techno and house, through to indie and good ‘ol rock’n’roll. Whatever your tastes, this is a must for those wishing to explore the capital’s music scene.


A nightclub in the Smithfield area of the City, Fabric is a London hotspot that attracts some 3000 people every Friday night.

With a reputation for top DJs, three rooms offering a selection of music types and a license that keeps it open until 6 am, this is the perfect spot for those who want to dance the night away.
