From the team of the already resound The Old Blue Last in Shoreditch, and Birthdays in Dalston, the team are preparing to open their new venue The Stillery, located in Camden, London.
The venue will be a music, and DJ venue, situated in the center of Camden Town. It will consist of two floors, for both parties and annual club nights. It will be open throughout the week, featuring music and live music where necessary. The Stillery will also have a rotating kitchen residency.
Ross Allmark, the events Boss at The Old Blue Last and Birthdays on speaking of the new venue said:
“I guess the first thing is that we didn’t want to open another bar in east London. It really felt like sometime last year the whole area reached saturation point and people were just opening bars in east because that’s the accepted logic. Customers have started to experience launch-fatigue. For us Camden was the natural choice; when I was in my late teens and I started traveling into town it was the first area I visited, and for me will always be synonymous with alternative night life in London,” Allmark continues. “The opportunity to contribute to that tradition, and hopefully bring something a little different to it, is really exciting.”
The primary focus of the new venue will be as a hang-out space, according to Allmark. “Music is right at the heart of what we do, but with so many great venues in the area it wouldn’t make sense for us to set up another space geared solely to live stuff,” he explains. “The live stuff will happen when something comes along that we really, really believe in.”
Located at 18 Kentish Road, The Stillery is set to open later this month. Although open throughout the week, it will become a members only after 11pm. Excitedly enough, to become a member is completely free and easy to do when asked at the door. To become a member simply means to benefit from discounted drinks and entry.
