If you’re familiar with the capital’s nightlife scene, particularly the east end of London, you’ll no doubt be privy to one of its best-known venues.
Set within the confines of the old Truman Brewery in the famous Brick Lane area – Cafe 1001 is the ultimate destination for music lovers. Known for its vibrant indoor and outdoor areas, this eclectic space offers a wide range of music events.
The venue returns to basics in 2023, reimagining the renowned party venue into a high-end audio bar. Focusing on the charm of the longstanding venue, the team have been accented the venue’s original features whilst adding a brand new custom sound system, a custom-built DJ booth, an improved interior, and a renewed focus on talent booking.
The launch starts next week, kicking off on Thursday, January 26th, with James Priestley & friends of Cafe 1001. The fun doesn’t stop there, as events continue over the weekend with Shaolin Cowboy, COEO headline and Wolf music on Sunday.
The venue’s stripped-down decor gives birth to a new era of Cafe 1001, reverting to a more guided booking strategy that will help elevate the brand to new heights. All of the former only adds more weight to the promised lively atmosphere, regular food pop-ups, and constant stream of events in a new format.
Speaking about the newly renovated loft bar and operational direction, Luca Pilato, General Manager of Cafe 1001, says: “Cafe 1001 is a venue close to people’s hearts. I’ve had countless people remark how they spent their youth drinking Red Stripes on the terrace or slumped upstairs in the loft area all weekend. You can still do that but in a more comfortable and refined setting. We’ve created a music lovers’ paradise with a quality sound system, a feature DJ booth and DJ cabinets and programmed authentic DJs without the formality of your usual audiophile bars. It’s still Cafe 1001, don’t worry, people still graffiti in the toilets, and a Red Stripe is still only £5!”
