Ginglik is a self styled independent beat bunker committed to providing quality entertainment and customer service and creating a unique platform for established and emerging artists.
It is uniquely located in a converted subterranean Edwardian public convenience which was built to serve the spectators of the 1908 Olympic Games nearby at White City. Tammi Willis & Colin Welsh lovingly converted it from a snooker club in the summer of 2002, into a lush bunker venue that hosts live music, comedy nights, club nights, cabaret nights and art exhibitions.
It has attracted some of Britain’s most successful comedians, musicians, bands and DJ’s including Robin Williams, Rory Bremner, Jimmy Carr, Harry Hill, Frank Skinner, Paulo Nutini, Narina Pallot, Newton Faulkner, Larrikin Love, Jamie T, AirHammer, Laura Marling, Lucky Soul, The Holloways, Dustin’s Bar Mitzvah, Mary Anne Hobbs, DJ Krust, Alex Patterson and many many more.
We operate a membership policy which makes for a refreshingly friendly atmosphere and generates a community vibe unrivaled by any other London venue.
“The quintessential London experience is to cram yourself into a sweaty Soho basement to perspire alongside San Miguel-swigging recruitment consultants and middle-ranking cheap-suits, and wonder what the really cool people are doing tonight. The answer? They’ve all gone to Ginglik. Cocooned in a womblike shelter deep beneath Shepherd’s Bush Green and bathed in the soft glow of ultraviolet string sculpture, they enjoy an eclectic mixture of live music and cutting-edge DJs, multimedia performance, film and comedy nights. Contain your excitement. You’ve made it. You’re one of them now.” london.flavourpill.net
