It was a real shame when KOKO closed down a few years ago from flooding and a fire that damaged its ever-so-iconic copper dome. The beloved Camden music venue was a real crowdpleaser for Londoners - especially considering the many artists who graced its wonderous stage, from Kanye to Prince and The Rolling Stones. Quite the star power if you ask us. However, it's coming back and better than ever. Expect the space to be totally revamped this month, complete with a buzzing café and a member’s only performance area called Fly Tower. Absolute music to the ears, am I right?
With a menu curated by chef Andreas Engberg, Café KOKO’s pizzeria is set to be a real winner. These doughy delights will be made with San Marzano tomatoes and sumptuous toppings such as nduja and Calabrian chillis. Polish off a few slices, followed by some signature sips at the taproom. Not feeling the savoury vibes? You can munch on scrumptious New York-style pies and cheesecakes.
Want to feel like a true superstar? Become a member and you’ll get access to the higher floors of the building– including a secret speakeasy. Shhhh. Afterwards, you can hit up the botanical rooftop terrace or bustling bar located in their restored dome. Stumble upon hidden gems such as a lovely piano room or library - and if you’re lucky, you might just get to see the magic behind the music at their sick recording studio. And if you can't wait to check out all the hubbub, head to its grand opening party on the 30th of April for show-stopping performances from Luciano and Isaac Carter.
