The Mothership Group, the team behind venues Queen of Hoxton, The Book Club and Brighton’s Patterns, has opened a new multi-arts bar and club in Hoxton called Colours.
Residing on the former site of Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen, Colours has been created in collaboration with east London live music venues Hackney’s Village Underground and EartH.
The 300-capacity establishment offers a selection of genre-spanning gigs and club nights throughout the week, welcoming local and global acts and residencies.
Alongside the music-led programme, Colours also hosts cultural events at the SuperCulture room, ranging from an ‘after school’ club with Maisie Williams’ creative networking app Daisie to Queer Experimental Cinema and Neon Naked Life Drawing. During the day, the room functions as a free space for collaborators to host meetings, rehearsals and record podcasts.
A vibrant cocktail list is available at the bar while The Orange Buffalo takes residency in the kitchen, serving exclusive new dishes such as plant-based burger The Nawty and a Buffalo Chicken Salad.
Chloe Uppington, head of events for Mothership Group, said: “Painting a revolution of raw performance and inclusive and accessible culture, Colours will be a bold and beautiful temple of creativity and celebration of live music.
“A testament to Hoxton’s past, which overflows with seminal moments across club, culture and the art scene, Colours is part of a dedicated push to keep young artists and musicians in East London.”
A spokesperson for Village Underground added: “London is crying out for more live music venues, so we’re thrilled to be collaborating with such an exciting new space in East London. Colours will be a vital platform for developing artists and promoters on the cusp of stardom.
