It's Monday night. I'm sitting on my sofa, feeling lazy, the London sky behind me is dreadfully grey. It only seemed appropriate that I'd kick off this blog with an article devoted to the Monday blues in this wonderful city. You see, the great thing about London at night is that the sky is never grey.
So, Central London's best blues bars, anyone?
==== * Ain't Nothing But... ===
Blues at its nitty, gritty best. A tiny stage with neon lighting, live bands every night, and jam sessions every monday.
My personal favourite. Its great location in the heart of Soho and the vintage atmosphere emanating from the place make it a great venue for nights out with friends and even dates. Besides, entry's free Sunday to Thursday, and a fiver the rest of the time, what could possibly go wrong?
20 Kingly Street, Soho, London
*The Blues Kitchen
Bigger, fancier than Ain't Nothing But..., the Blue Kitchen is a great place to chill at any time of the day - think round tables, spacious dining area, comfy padded seats, great food... a bar with endless selections of bourbon... not to mention great live acts to dance to.
Monday deals (might as well): If you book 24h in advance, you get 50% off food and drinks!
