The Lexington Review

Top 10 things I learnt about The Lexington pub and club:

1) Despite choosing the most subdued day of the week to visit, my geetar-honed heart felt at home in the Hangover Lounge, a Sunday pub experience aimed squarely at music lovers, not Premier League football fans.

2) With nary a TV screen in sight, I was at liberty to digest the Sunday newspapers; scoop up small forests’ worth of free music magazines; and slowly nod in appreciation as the preachers in the DJ pulpit spread the joy of good music.

3) When you receive change from £13 for a satisfyingly dense, smoked duck breast with perfect potatoes, a duo of greens, a Yorkshire pudding you could live in, AND a considerably-sized portion of ice cream-accompanied brownie; then you, my good friend, have found yourself one of the best Sunday roasts in London!

4) Plus, the jukebox on the wall containing everything from Boney M to White Stripes, Nick Cave and The Vaccines is free!

5) To then discover they only charge £17.95 for a bottle of Portuguese Vinho Verde, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, or Picpoul de Pinet, you have to ask: how are they making any money?

6) There’s a slim possibility this could have something to do with the sale of bourbon, of which the pub boasts a fanatical 80-strong range.

7) Plus, despite possessing burlesque club red drapes and chandeliers; the fireside Chesterfield and hanging antlers of an old London gentlemen’s club; and the kind of high ceilings and American craft microbrewery beers normally associated with gastropubs, this corner pub in Angel has a higher function to play, and the secret lies above.

8) Upstairs you’ll find a gig space which has won various awards as a ‘best live music venue’. It holds around 300 riff-giddy souls, who come with almost nightly regularity to witness local and well established bands pump out indie rock n roll, with occasional flurries into hip-hop.

9) If it’s a Friday or Saturday night, and the bands have finished bursting your ear drums, The Lexington becomes a free (there’s that words again) nightclub until 4am. Be aware towards the beginning/end of the month: when pay day arrives, so do the queues.

10) If the voice inside me wanted to share any concerns about The Lexington, the toilets would probably get a mention. But then, the voice inside me is too busy rockin’ out. more

“The lexington is, overall, a pretty big music venue holding about 250 upstairs and seating about 100 in the main bar, and the quality of sound and bands is exceptional. Great food for a music venue and an amazing selection of beers and not forgetting they are open late every night!!”

“Went to a night in Jan called marmalade to see The Munroes and it turned out that the main act was Sham69 onstage with The Prodigy and The Towers Of London! Didn't see that coming, absolute genius night. There were loads of bands on but the only other 1 I remember was The Blaggers cos the lead singer had a executioners mask on! Bloody brilliant.”
