AKA means many things to many people; and like all the finest creations, AKA is revisited time and time again by people who love what we do. Since 1998, we've grown and prospered through the loyalty and loving of our dedicated team and clientele.

We're a well loved central London bar venue that's poles apart from the rest. We're independent both literally and in spirit. There are two venues in our clan, our big brother, the globally renowned nightclub The End, is just next door.

We've got working hard and playing hard down to a fine art; some members of our professional team have been here since we began, pretty unheard of in this game and testament to the unique vibe and ethos of our venue.

Great venues are plentiful in London, but we believe the difference with AKA is our reputation for quality, our classic bar status, our fantastic event programming and our people: experts who are passionate about what they do.

In days gone by AKA was the main sorting office depot for Holborn, the space was also shared with some fine horses, who partook in delivering the capital's mail. Check the brick walls next time you're in to see some of the original features.

By the time we launched, we'd transformed the venue into a stylish New York-style bar conversion, creating an airy, split-level space with a warehouse design and several separate seating and bar areas. Fronted by huge glass doors, the space is now a great backdrop for some simple furniture, a spacious DJ booth, and an illuminated 15m fibre-optic bar with real wow-factor.

Despite its size, our bar has a warm, earthy and friendly feel, so we hope you'll feel right at home.


Great venues for hire are plentiful in London, but we believe the difference when it comes to hiring AKA is our reputation for quality, our classic bar status, and our people - experts who are passionate about what they do.


As a hire venue, we're incredibly versatile. Downstairs, our dancefloor and lovely high ceilings give you a real feeling of space, as well as being a great area for performers, projections, decor, cinema and art. Upstairs, the Mezzanine level looks over the action, with a private bar, comfy seating, and the secluded Stardeck for getting cozy in a corner or VIP-ing it up.

AKA is the sister bar to The End nightclub, and London's first DJ bar; so every DJ worth their salt has played here. But more than that, we are renowned for the quality and variety of our drinks, and the expertise of our bar team is recognized within the industry as second to none - so you know our cocktails are to die for.
