After taking a well needed holiday break, we are kicking off 2015 with more news on all things music, just for you. Biz Scene Bleeding is back with the scoop on some great music venues which are guaranteed to make your night (or day) that bit more melodic.
The Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town, Shoreditch
Up for something a little bit different? Look no further. The Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town is one of London’s hidden gems tucked away behind a Smeg fridge inside Shoreditch’s Breakfast Club branch. This edgy venue boasts luscious cocktails, great music and a plethora of sandwiches and platters all in a mysteriously funky atmosphere. It is not only a great place to kick off your evening, the venue also offers a daring way to start the day with a morning deal of a sneaky drink and a delicious breakfast.
In keeping with the mysterious vibe in order to gain access you must ask to see the Mayor after which you will be discreetly escorted through the fridge door. Be warned: the one bar rule is to NEVER exit through the fridge door.

The Troubadour Cafe and Club, Earl’s Court
Great food, historical aura and fantastic music. Dating back to the 1950s the cafe walls are adorned with relics from the past, including album covers which display the Troubadour itself. This venue has long been linked to music having had the likes of Hendrix, Dylan, Mitchell, and Doherty play in its underground club. Mellow music and the odd poetry reading contribute to a bohemian vibe which is sure to help you unwind after a long, stressful day.
Arrive before 7.00 pm to get a place to sit.
