Nestled in the heart of Shoreditch and within strolling distance of Shoreditch High Street and Old Street stations is Blues Kitchen; a vibrant restaurant and bar offering up delicious Texan BBQ grub, live music and a library of bourbon cocktails seven days a week. A spacious diner set across two floors of a converted Victorian warehouse, the Blues Kitchen takes up the mantle of its popular sister venues in Brixton and Camden to offer a great place to dine in the day and dance in the night.

Guests find a menu stocked with crowd-pleasers. Hot buffalo wings, pan fried catfish and sirloin steaks line up next to an impressive array of hearty burgers; all cooked with that renowned Blues Kitchen expertise. With over 100 types of bourbon, a lovely cocktail card and awesome draught beers from Hackney Wick, there's no shortage of options to wash dinner down with either. Once the plates have been cleared away, Blues Kitchen's buzzing live music programme gets into full swing; with regular bands and DJs playing into the night (3am on Friday and Saturday). This place really does have something for any time of day.

Blues Kitchen is a dynamic Shoreditch hangout perfect for those with a penchant for American eats and dancing long into the night.

Our group had a mixed experience at Blues Kitchen, the atmosphere was great, and the food was amazing. We did however have a couple of issues the first was our table wasn't available for us at the booked time so we had to wait around 15-20 minutes, which didn't bother us too much in the first instance, the annoyance however was that after we had eaten we were offered more drinks which we ordered and as soon as they arrived another team member asked us to leave our table. Understandably the tables have 2 hours limits due to the popularity of the bar but the fact we were delayed in the first instance and then asked to leave when the majority of tables around us were free as it was around 11pm! This ended up in an argument between two members of our party and the staff member, which as you can imagine didn't end the evening in the best light! Would try another Blues Kitchen for the food and atmosphere alone but probably not Shoreditch after the experience we had. I did advise the team upon asking for feedback of our issues but had no response unfortunately.

Awesome bar. Live band, busy atmosphere and free entry for students! Had a great night here and heard that the brunches are amazing so I'll be back to try that!

Went to Shoreditch Blues on a weekday last week and not only was the food good, there was a nice vibe in there too. Not the first time I've been there on a weekday and been impressed with the atmosphere, and the chilled out waiters make you feel relaxed after a long day at work. Had the wings to start, milkshake and Beef Brisket for the main with an additional side of wings, and then the Oreo donuts to finish it all off. Yes I was completely full to the brim, and I loved every minute of it. I don't think it's possible to ever get sick of the wings at Blues. Possibly the best wings in England... definitely a contester for the best in London (coming from someone who takes his chicken wing game very seriously). Give it a few weeks and I'm sure my girlfriend and I will be back there. GOOD GRUB AMERICAN STYLE, Yeee Haar

I came here last night for the swing night and thoroughly enjoyed my whole thing! We started off the night with a round of old fashioned cocktails to get into the spirit of the place - they were well balanced and given the attention they deserve. The goat tacos are full of flavour and absolutely delicious. Despite being quite full from the large portion size (not a bad thing) I managed to devour most of the burger of the month, pizza/burger combo, topped with a truffle macaroni cheese arancini on top that was to die for! I wish I had had room for desert because the options looked good, but I was stuffed. The staff here were super friendly, attentive and knowledgeable.

I visited with a couple of friends for dinner last night and had a fabulous time! The menu has a wide range of Texan BBQ inspired dishes to choose from. I went in for the challenge and selected the Burger of the month which is a pizza inspired burger called The Pilgrim and it most certainly left me speechless! We are big cocktail drinkers and would highly recommend the Lychee Martini. Smooth, tasty and easy to drink. There was an acoustic set which definitely set the mood for Monday club. Go check out The Blues Kitchen if you haven't been before, it's a fun experience with something for everyone.

We came here for dinner drinks and a dance befor a friend left for Australia go find himself. As you do. The food was superb and the music too. We wanted to see the live music but they were over an hour late so that was incredibly disapointing. In fact it was really annoying. So we left. I don't understand why the band were so late but a notice would have been nice! Drinks were averagely priced for shoreditch these days and the venue was full by 11pm. Unreserved seating in the lounge had been full since 7.30pm. If you're a girl, I would recommend wearing your ugliest clothes or track suits here because I had 12 men grope, grab and touch me without permission. I was in very casual clothes too! Perhaps the staff should pay more attention to how much alcohol they're serving because there were a lot of already-drunk-drinkers. Cloakroom/ space for bags or coats would be useful or even the possibility of reserving lounge space. The booking staff and process was easy and accommodating though. Would go again, just with dinner finishing earlier so we could get a seat in the lounge. Quite frustrating that space is so limited in the lounge at 7pm and we were assured there'd be free space for after our dinner! There wasn't!

Came here for a 'date night' no que. food was ok but not to my liking. Vibe was great, live music was an added bonus. Great venue for after work drinks. Ashney visited Blues Kitchen Shoreditch on 10 Sep 2014

The staff is super nice, I went without booking with a couple of friends and was told to wait around half an hour but after 10 minutes the waitress had set up a table already for us. The food was yummy and live music was quite entertaining.

This place is HUGE but saying that and has loads of character. Came here on a Friday and tried their chicken wings. They were really spicy but not too spicy to keep me from diving into them! Cocktails were awesome, such a pity I couldn't stay for longer and try more!

I have been to both the Camden and Shoreditch branch. I had an amazing night both nights, service was on point, the food is amazing, the cocktails are absolutely tasty and all at a reasonable price. Nothing to complain about what so ever.

I've been twice and really enjoyed each visit. Came on a Friday and they served up super spicy chicken wings which were fantastic, and visited for my office Christmas party which was also a lot of fun. Good BBQ'd food to start, a few cocktails after and a live band playing great covers of blues songs = a winning combination for me!

Came to Blues Kitchen on a Friday night and absolutely stuffed my face on their amazing food. The staff were really friendly, great service, best ribs I've tasted in London and the live band were incredible bringing the tunes until nearly 3am. Definitely recommend this place.

One of my favourite new places to go out in shoreditch, went for the christmas party with work and was so impressed, upset they didn't have alligator in stock but the live music made up for it x
06 Jan 2015 by sophieslain

One of my favourite places in east London. Strong atmosphere, bacon cheeseburger was a delight and the cocktails packed a real punch. You'll have to come early as it does get quite busy but I guess that just shows how popular it is. After work on Friday would be a good place to visit - they bring round complimentary wings for a couple of hours!

I loved this venue when it was Bar Music Hall but Blues Kitchen have made a really nice mark on the place. The staff were friendly but not annoying, food was awesome and the frozen margaritas were STRONG. Stuffed our faces and went for a hard shake for dessert, though we had no chance in hell of finishing it. Definitely recommend.

Really enjoyed this place. Cool vibes, great music and lots of room. They gave us free chicken wings one time, which was a lovely surprise as they were actually really nice. It can get very busy on Friday/Sat nights and some of the best bar seats are always reserved but all the more reason to get in there early and enjoy it for longer!

I have so much to say about this bar, and it's all so darn positive! Get stuck into a platter if you're in to the current meaty market going around East restaurants

LOVE the Blues Kitchen in Camden, always so much going on in the evening and the food is the best American cuisine in the area for sure. This one's got some high standards to match!
