100 UP!


London address 100 WARDOUR STREET has always been important in Soho’s musical iconography. In 1964 the legendary Marquee Club set up home there. The venue played host to artists like The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, countless wannabees and dozens of visiting US soul stars.

The Marquee sadly closed in 1988 and since then the venue has had several uses. Most recently it’s been home to the restaurant/bar/live music venue simply called 100 WARDOUR ST.

100 Wardour St offers live music five nights a week and starting this coming Tuesday, 23 January (and every Tuesday thereafter), the place will be buzzing to the sounds of the Atlantic Soul Orchestra (pictured below). “SOUL TUESDAYS”, for that’s the name of the night, will offer hard-hitting soul as the band run through their repertoire of music from the back catalogues of people like Otis Redding, Sam and Dave, Sam Cooke and many more.

The night starts at around 8pm and if you fancy a bite there’s soul food on offer too!
