Best Live Music Venue 2014/15 - DesignMyNight Awards

The Old Blue Last is a pub and live venue in Shoreditch, East London brought to you by the people at Vice. Since 2004 they have been bringing you the best forward-thinking bands and Djs seven nights a week, as well as secret shows by some of the biggest names around and all, more-often-than-not, completely for FREE. 

In January 2010 a decision was made to give the site a facelift so the pub was gutted, the bars replaced, space was created, changed all the sound systems, built a new room and most importantly, replaced those toilets. So now you can enjoy whatever it is they put on every night of the week without the spectre of the old urinals putting you off, and with slightly less chance of being crushed into a speaker stack during a gig.

The Old Blue Last London - Pub Review

The Old Blue Last is known for being rowdy. Like really rowdy. With this wild reputation in mind, it seemed like a good idea to check out the venue myself. An iconic live music venue that's seen some of the biggest names around in recent years, much...

Old Blue Last is really close to where I work, which is ideal. But it's also the only place I have seen Briska cider in Shoreditch too! Another great reason to go. Nice and chilled, the retro pub murals on the walls are also a great little conversation-starter.

Seen some pretty sweet bands here and it's not too shabby downstairs either, great pieces of taxidermy and cinema seats the like!

Good old fashioned East End pub that has been made trendy by the shorditch skinny jean community. this type of bar wouldn't normally be my bag but this place has a certain charm and some decent beers to bacvk up the good music provided by the extensive live act calendar.

well The old blue last certainly is London hip but its so hot in there! Had to escape to the smokers area outside in order to cool down. Great fun music being played and lots of fit shoreditch types!
