The Double R Club

Welcome to the 'red velvet elsewhere' of The Double R Club, the award-winning London cabaret institution, a place of mystery and shadow, of sex and secrets, of disturbing absurdities and bad dreams inspired, directly or indirectly, by the dark and beautiful worlds of David Lynch. Suave Lynchian figment Benjamin Louche hosts the darkly surreal cocktail of "Damn fine" Cabaret. Think; Twin Peaks meets Blue Velvet meets Eraserhead meets The Elephant Man rocketing down the Lost Highway in the Wild At Heart Inland Empire of the seedy and sumptuous belly of Bethnal Green Working Men's Club. LINEUP: Bettsie Bon Bon from the darkness of dreams comes this creature that shines without illumination… Marnie Scarlet a crypto-historical thing from the hallways of neverwas, crawls into the here and now! Rodent Decay this harbinger of the endtimes and prophet of doom will both enrapture bring on the rapture… Flabberghast Theatre a tiny being, lost in the black vastness of "another place" tolls its bell… Hunt & Darton a duet of prime-cut, grade-A absurdity twists the world of language to their own ends… Nathan Dean Williams long of ear, trapped, and vividly vivisected in a violent vacation from reality! Snake Fervour a pale mistress of conflagration, advances from the red velvet elsewhere, combusts and is gone! Em Brulee a vertiginous voice from the cellar of your heart cries out, shears heartstrings with abandon! PLUS Interval Games and Free Agent Cooper cocktail shot 'n' donuts on entry!

Green Milk Presents: The Birthday

That's right. We're celebrating everyone's birthday on the 9th of May. Because why just have one a year? You're better than that.

And as a little treat we've invited a few extra special guests…

Harry Hill · Fin Taylor · Lucy Pearman · Cam Spence · Francis Boulle

Oooo leee loooo. Look at you!!!!

Fin Taylor

A master provocateur treading the threadbare lines of political correctness with a searing spotlight on modern sense. “The most discussed, and critically lauded comedian of recent Edinburgh Fringes.” ★★★★★ THE SCOTSMAN

Harry Hill

The man himself. Big shirt collar. Thick rimmed specs. All the silly, stupid, surreal thoughts that circle his dome spilled out on stage.

Lucy Pearman

Loopy lunacy from the incumbent queen of absurdism.

"Lucy Pearman is oxymoronic in that she is a niche for everyone. Her bizarre character comedy is one of the most unique acts at the Fringe." ★★★★★ Broadway Baby

Cam Spence

The 2018 Funny Women Award Winner, this is subversive character comedy from one of the scene’s fastest rising surrealists.

Francis Boulle That’s right. Mr. Quirky-Charm, Made In Chelsea himself is coming just for YOUR birthday. Do you have any idea how many other parties he's ditching for this?

Thu 9 May

The Marias

Thu 23 May

£12.32

The MarÍas

LA five-piece The Marías mix psych, jazz, funk and lounge influences into a dream-like haze. Velvet-smooth vocals, hypnotic guitar riffs and nostalgic horn solos add to their late-night vintage mystique. This is an 18+ event.

Bethnal Green Working Men's Club

‘A must see on the nightlife map.’ – Timeout
‘East End’s most celebrated nightspot.’ – Londonist
‘One of the city’s hottest underground club nights.’ – Harpers Bazaar

Tucked away off the beaten track (off Bethnal Green Road), just east of Shoreditch in London – that's where we are.
Since 1953 we've been a real east-end Workingmen's Club and we like to have a good time!
In fact we hold regular social events each week.
Some racy, others cultural and refined, but mostly wild and unhinged good-times.
We’re not your typical ‘club’ venue.
Not only do we put on a damn good night out, but we engage and encourage the growth of local artists, musicians, DJs, and performers; working with them to create and promote all sorts of accessible events.
We’re seen by many as a vital part of community life, surviving with our original purpose intact but reinvigorated with an improved programme of events.
We produce evocative and interactive events, curating unpretentious happenings in the club and beyond that give guests not just a great time but an experience to take away.
